I suggested on tonight’s show that a new drinking game develop around MSM’s use of the description “hacked” in the Climategate story. It is very funny how the writers on the networks cannot bring themselves to discuss the import of the content of the e-mails independent of the method by which they were obtained. The fury of the greens in the “newsrooms” cannot be contained.
When the New York Times was busy publishing national security secrets, did MSM precede every story on the surveillance program with a description indicating that the information had been obtained via a criminal act? Of course not, but the writers approved of that illegal pilfering of information.
Unlike the Times‘ use of wrongfully obtained information, however, Climategate threatens no one’s life and no nation’s security.
