Skip to comments.Climategate: How They All Squirmed (MSM excuses)
Posted on 11/26/2009 1:51:19 PM PST by Sneakyuser
Among the many great amusements of the Climategate scandal are the myriad imaginative excuses being offered by the implicated scientists and their friends in the MSM as to why this isnt a significant story. Here are some of the best:
Most brazen doth protest too much defence: www.realclimate.org
Real Climate is the website established and run by a claque of scientist friends of Michael Mann inventor of the discredited Hockey Stick curve. They are also closely associated with the crowd at the disgraced Climate Research Unit. They clearly feel no apology is necessary:
More interesting is what is not contained in the emails. There is no evidence of any worldwide conspiracy, no mention of George Soros nefariously funding climate research, no grand plan to get rid of the MWP, no admission that global warming is a hoax, no evidence of the falsifying of data, and no marching orders from our socialist/communist/vegetarian overlords.
Well, boys, if you say so

There is no evidence of any worldwide conspiracy
Emails from people
.....in various countries colluding to doctor data
.....destroy documents rather than surrender them to FOIA requests
.....and remove people from journal review panels because they are not on board with AGW
This is not "evidence of a worldwide conspiracy"?
What happened to our Free Press? Where are our 21st Century Woodwards & Bernsteins? Who took them and where did they put them?
It is absolutely incredible that the MSM found Governor Mark Sanford’s sexual indiscretion more newsworthy than this scandal.
Perhaps if the emails had included some sexual innuendo and evidence of infidelities the press could have paid some attention. Damn those English prudes!!!
Well, after all, it’s only a trillion-dollar, government-sponsored, world-wide fraud.
Nothing really important, like the death of Michael Jackson or the menu at Obama’s first State Dinner.
And you can’t really blame the New York Times for not reporting on it, since their climatology reporter was involved up to his neck.
And they’re squirming still...behind their stonewalling and sticking their fingers in their ears and singing loudly any time anyone speaks truth to their World Scale Leftie Grift.
Really, there need not be a conspiracy.
The MSM all spouts the same liberal bullsht,
but I doubt they have any meetings about just exactly
they’re going to say.
It’s just that they act according to their belief system.
Realclimate is a branch of Media Matters to promote Global Warming. They are using their oldest trick to denigrate the whistleblower and tamp it down.
Pray for America’s Freedom
It's a consensus rather than a conspiracy. They know each other, talk to each other, and consensus builds.
there is certainly a conspiracy to build a consensus.
the woman vote is essentially a consensus forged by a conspiracy to build the consensus.
Global Warming hoax denier says: This is what I’d have to see if it were a world wide conspiracy-—>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIm8qNirTOk&feature=related
Laugh. But this is the standard they are now setting.
Woodward and Bernstein were myths. They helped the establishment ruin a sitting Republican president whom the left had hated for a quarter century. The result of the Watergate Coup was unlimited Democrat power in Washington, led by the adonkey party’s favorite Republicans, Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller.
As for Woodward and Bernstein, these same crusaders thought Slick Willie was just swell.
You are, of course, correct on Woodward & Bernstein’s motivation. But since they are the media’s gold standard for investigative reporting - why are they not emulated?
I guess it’s too dangerous for leftist trained & brainwashed reporters to stray off the reservation & follow history making events..wherever they lead.
Losing their jobs is so much more important than losing their integrity.
I'm referring to the collusion amongst the "scientists" on how to rig the outcome of studies by manipulating data, how to exclude scientists from publishing who do not agree with their views, and how to hide evidence of that mentioned above.
This is not necessarily an organized effort, but it sure comes close to it.
The allied MSM is just a bunch of leftist idiots who hitched on the AGW bandwagon in hopes of getting their socialist utopia forced on the free world. They are definitely in an organized effort to hide evidence that AGW isn't the only theory in town.
...of course, no apology is necessary....IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE $$$$ / POWER.
They're All Marxists...never about the climate / planet.
Of course all the AGW fraudsters could easily deflate the outrage by revealing all their info and agreeing to real peer review and public scrutiny. That’s what real scientists accused of fraud would do. What are the odds they’ll do it?
You mean pandering to politicians; pimping presstitutes; diddling the data, and F***ing the public aren't sexual enough?
How about the fact they were running a numbers racket; and had a massage parlor in the back room for those same numbers?
They were certainly also committing infidelities to the scientific method.
In fact, they were caught in flagrante delicto during an orgy of mutual gratification and self indulgance.
OMG! I'll have to rescind the nomination for Conservative Journalists Of The Decade Award!
I thought they said, "Slick Willie is just swill!"
Pentagon Papers and near treasonous law breaking to obtain and publish them, GOOD; "stealing" and releasing agenda-driven falsified scientific data and incriminating Leftist emails, BAAAAAD! Investigative reporters GOOD--- unless they are investigating us!
Who started Media Matters .. wasn’t it Hillary or one of the Clinton characters ..??
