The AP Investigates ClimateGate

The Associated Press puts one of their top reporters on the ClimateGate scandal.

LONDON – E-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data — but the messages don't support claims that the science of global warming was faked, according to an exhaustive review by The Associated Press.
Ah. Yes. It was a train wreck. But the hazmat crew is cleaning up the toxics and soon everything will be restored to just the way it was before the unfortunate incident. Nothing to see here folks. Move along.

OK. I'm moving. So I moved over to Watts Up With That and found out some interesting details about one of the authors of the AP piece. Seth Borenstein. It seems that he was in on the scam as detailed by e-mails he sent to the CRU Team.

I think a call or two into the Associated Press might be in order. You might want to investigate for yourself how some one involved in suppressing information he didn't care for could investigate himself.

It seems to me that many of the MSM's recent "exonerations" of the ClimateGate conspirators are an exercise in foot shooting - their own. Some one should remind the MSM that if the wound is not properly treated it could prove fatal.
