Report: Al Gore Not Buying Environmental Magazine

wall092308 Report: Al Gore Not Buying Environmental MagazineIt looks like Al Gore won’t be buying Plenty after all.

Last week, Media Mob picked up an item from Portfolio‘s Mixed Media blogger Jeff Bercovici that suggested the former vice president was kicking the tires on the environmental lifestyle magazine.

In an update today, Mr. Bercovici corrects the record:

In fact, it’s not Gore but his Live Earth collaborator, media entrepreneur Kevin Wall, who is in negotiations with the environmental title. “He is looking into a few different opportunities with Plenty,” confirmed a spokeswoman for Wall. “He’s not position to be speaking about what those are just yet.” Wall’s spokeswoman said the range of possibilities “runs the gamut,” but should be narrowed down within the next two to four weeks.

Mr. Bercovici received confirmation from Mr. Gore’s people that he’s not involved with the deal.
