Phillip Adams on "Opposition Research":
Certainly, Gore's character was discredited in the 2000 presidential election when a Republican researcher found, in an obscure handout, the claim that Al had "invented the Internet". This was promptly hyped into an all-out attack on Gore's honesty, made all the more effective by his tendency to be pompous and pretentious.
This "obscure handout"? Its called CNN - Adams may have heard of it. The actual quote:
"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."
That took me exactly two and a half minutes to find. If you need anymore research done Phil, or maybe just some research at all, let me know.
