Surprising No One: Liberal Media Completely Embargoes Phil Jones Admissions

With three exceptions -- FoxNews and the Washington Times (of course) and this brief single mention on CNN:

JOHN ROBERTS, CNN ANCHOR: There's also something else that's out there. Phil Jones from the University of East Anglia, the climate research unit, the guy that was at the center of this recent e-mail controversy late last year, has said in an interview with the BBC that he has not seen any, quote, "statistically significant warming since 1995," though he says he still believes that the earth's temperature has warmed. And he also said that he might be missing some of the data that is responsible for his climate models.

Of course, skeptics are jumping all over this, saying the whole thing is a farce. Global warming doesn't exist.

What do you think of the Professor Jones situation, the lack of statistically significant warming, and the fact that he may have misplaced some of the records?

JOHN CHRISTY, PROFESSOR, ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE, UNIV. OF ALABAMA- HUNTSVILLE: Well, I think what Phil Jones is saying is that Mother Nature is perfectly capable of making the temperature rise and fall through the past several hundred years. And in terms of the data problems, well, we do have to be careful when we're talking about public policy, that means trillions of dollars, and we haven't had that very hard and critical situation where you take care of data and make it publicly available to everyone. And that needs to be done now.

We have a childish, petulant, insecure, unprofessional media. It has to be noted again that the British media is covering this story well -- even left-wing outfits like the Guardian and the statist-establishment-left BBC.

My respect for the BBC and the Guardian has increased quite a bit. This story is obviously against their political agenda, but they covered it anyway, because it's, you know, news.

Compare to the American Media, which is principally now in the business of blocking the reportage of news.
