Thanks to CNN.com, it will be surprisingly easy for tabloid reporters (and bachelors/bachelorettes looking to score a date!) to contact Al and Tipper Gore in the wake of their separation, as the website accidentally revealed their private e-mail address Tuesday afternoon. The site included a link to a PDF of an e-mail that the Gores sent to friends announcing their separation: While the e-mail address was blacked out, a single click of the black bar opened up an e-mail client with the address filled in. The PDF was removed after about two hours, but that was plenty of time for the address to circulate and hit the Twitterverse. [Web Newser/Mediabistro via Gawker]
