Nah. Can’t be! Wingnuts and climate change deniers completely and totally full of bat guano? You don’t say!

An independent report into the leak of hundreds of e-mails from one of the world’s leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved, saying they acted honestly and that their research was reliable.

There really never was a story here but today’s news outlets are too damned lazy to figure that out before getting on the sensationalism train. They cater to lunatics like Beck and Limbaugh like kids catching candy at a parade. Toss some bullshit out there and the kiddos at Fox News and even CNN eat it up. Scandal! Hacking! Fixing data! Debunked!

It’s funny how absent the same people were when an administration really was fixing facts around a policy. All too busy squeezing every amount of jingoism from the flag in their nightly coverage to give a shit.

Dear Journalism,

When are you going to start doing your fucking job?
