The CRU/Crappy Media Parallel

As I was writing the previous post on the craptastic legacy media, I realized there’s a remarkable parallel with the unfolding CRU hacked email scandal.  When true believers (leftwing journalists in one case vs climate researchers in the other) control the input (reporting vs climate data) and the “unbiased” check on quality (editors vs peer reviewers), the output is the same: a stinking heap of crap that’s passed off as undeniable truth.

No wonder the legacy media is ignoring the CRU story.
