The Main-Stream Media (MSM) was slow to picking up the Climategate issue seriously. Most of the MSM described it so coldly as just another computer hacking case or were trying to spin stories in favour of the Climate-Change crew despite the evidence obtained from the leaked emails. The leaked emails, although cannot be considered as the ultimate evidence, is only an assertion to the claims which the 'Climate Skeptics' or whistle blowers have been trying to say.
It's good to see that one of the MSM (CBC) recognized this folly and came forward with an unbiased voice, though it happened only at this last moment. Watch CBC's Rex Murphy speak on Climategate.
