New York Times Concerned About Secrecy

Here’s a dirty little secret about The New York Times. It likes to leak things. Important things. Things that change the course of the public conversation. From the Pentagon Papers to the ruined terrorist-surveillance programs of the Bush era, the Times has routinely found that secrecy is a danger and sunlight is a disinfectant.

Until now. A troublesome hacker recently released e-mails going to and from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Britain, e-mails that exposed how the "scientific experts" cited so often by the media on global warming display are guilty of crude political talk, attempts at censoring opponents, and twisting scientific data to support their policy agenda.

The e-mails prove just how dishonest this left-wing global warming agenda truly is. And now suddenly, the New York Times has found religion, and won’t publish these private e-mails. Environmental reporter Andrew Revkin, who’s more global warming lobbyist than reporter, quoted – sparsely – from the e-mails, but declared he would not post these texts on his "Dot Earth" blog on the Times website: "The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won’t be posted here."

I think the Times doth protest too much. The hypocrisy here is so evident, not even mindless lefty drones will miss it.

So many lies they wouldn't know the truth if it bit them.

Nice to see some integrity at the NYT, huh? I can't even pretend to be surprised.

You know, if the next terrorist attack managed to hit and destroy the NYT building and only took out the editorial staff and reporters there (and the terrorists, of course), I'd have a hard time actually being mad about it.

What a joke the New York slime worried about secrecy
