Al Gore, the 45th vice president of the U.S. and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, has reconsidered his previous ban on allowing the press to cover his upcoming keynote address April 3 at the International CTIA Wireless conference in Las Vegas. FierceWireless has learned that the former vice president has opened his address to the press.
Last Thursday, FierceWireless was the first to report Gore's ban of the press. At the time, the association said that the ban was at Gore's request.
Gore habitually bans press from his talks. At last year's RSA Conference in San Francisco in April, he made the same demand. Likewise the press were not allowed into his speech at Augustana College nor at the American Institute of Architects convention in San Antonio.
As the official online show daily for CTIA, FierceWireless will be covering Gore's address next week.
