"Balance as bias"

I had to read this three times to be sure Al Gore actually said that the media is biased against global warming because they are providing balanced coverage. Say what?
"I believe that is one of the principal reasons why political leaders around the world have not yet taken action," Gore said. "There are many reasons, but one of the principal reasons in my view is more than half of the mainstream media have rejected the scientific consensus implicitly — and I say 'rejected,' perhaps it's the wrong word. They have failed to report that it is the consensus and instead have chosen … balance as bias.

First, its not consensus...and since when is a balanced approach bad?
