Media Ignores Climategate Even as NASA Is Dragged Into the Scandal

The state-run media may be ignoring the greatest scandal in modern science but unfortunately for them the story is not going away.
NewsBusters reported, via Instapundit:

“An hilariously bizarre situation is happening in the wake of the growing Climategate scandal. Many of the mainstream media stories about global warming are simply pretending it doesn’t exist. Perhaps they feel that by ignoring Climategate entirely that it will just go away. Unfortunately for them, the readers of these global warming stories keep bringing up the inconvenient truth of Climategate by mentioning the scandal in the comments section over and over and over again.”

And, now NASA is being dragged into the scandal.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute filed notices of intent today against NASA for refusing to release climate documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.
The American Spectator reported:

Today, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

The information sought is directly relevant to the exploding “ClimateGate” scandal revealing document destruction, coordinated efforts in the U.S. and UK to avoid complying with both countries’ freedom of information laws, and apparent and widespread intent to defraud at the highest levels of international climate science bodies. Numerous informed commenters had alleged such behavior for years, all of which appears to be affirmed by leaked emails, computer codes and other data from the Climatic Research Unit of the UK’s East Anglia University.

Pajamas Media has more… The confiscated “Read Me” file of a harried programmer shows that the scientists couldn’t replicate their warming results.
