Plenty To Get Owned By Al Gore?

Portfolio.com reports:

Al Gore‘s getting into the magazine business. Sources familiar with the former vice president’s plans say he is set to announce the acquisition of a stake in Plenty, a four-year-old title about environmentally-conscious living. As it happens, Gore — who already has a toe in the media business through his TV network, Current — is on the cover of the current issue.

Other sources deny he’s going to purchase the magazine.

Still it’s better than Bob Dole shilling for Viagra after he lost the election.
