No need for me to leave out the other two media objects of my occasional denunciation in the Climategate story. George Soros‘s organizational daughter-in-law, Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin, apparently was instructed by her editor to come up with copy superficially sufficient to fill a 472-word space on page A14. Of course she obliged, tapping out a crime story while barely addressing the substance of what was discovered. She even read the statement from the Climate Research Unit confirming authenticity of the records, made at least four phone calls, and included the sexy part about the alarmists wanting to beat up Pat Michaels (Look at that face — you wanna mess with him?!)!
Not bad, I guess, for a getaway Friday — but points deducted, Juliet, for accepting at face value the CRU/alarmist assumption that it was a hack job. Very well could have been an insider with a conscience.
As for my other target, I decided to visit the Web site of the Society of Environmental Journalists to see what, if any, buzz might be going on there (despite it being a usually quiet Saturday). It was quiet, but they do have a news aggregator with continual feeds from other news organizations. I found the following headlines among the most recent (which include Saturday stories):
No sign of climate research units, emails, scientist tricks, hackers, or East Anglia. Maybe Monday!
