Freaqueness of climategate reporting

Two weeks ago I blogged a non-freaque wave item on the climategate case that was disturbed the climate science world but not yet in main stream news news. Most of the science news sites: EurekAlert, Science Daily, and New Scientist, for instance are all still not reporting it to this day. It is of interest to note that Science News, which is also not reporting, but interestingly to the news articles on Copenhagen climate change meeting there inevitably propelled some readers comments on climategate nevertheless. Here's a sober example by SN subscriber James Hutchinson:
I agree with the above comments. I have been a subscriber to SN for over 30 years, confident in its reporting. If I do not see in its pages some fair coverage of the genuine scandal that is climategate, I will have no choice but to cancel my subscription. And I recommend everyone who calls him/her self a scientist to do the same. Science MUST NOT be a political tool, no matter the pressure, and science reporting must report, not influence. The truth will out.
I guess I am surprised and disappointed that Science News should allow themselves to fall into a pitiful position they are in now. Another reader has this advice for SN:
This is just disgusting. How can you have this artcle on Copenhagen and not mention that, as has been dicovered by climategate, we may be asking the world to spend billions of dollars for nothing. I know you guys are smarter than this. This is as simple as follow the money. Get off this train before the wreck.
I hope SN and science writers would listen! But I have to go to Pravda to find some sagacious comments by a Mr. Gregory Fegel on what's in store:

‘Climategate’ is not an ordinary case of falsifying data by a few rogue scientists. The fraudulent theory of Global Warming has provided the basis for an international political movement which has the stated goal of completely restructuring the entire global economy based on that fraudulent theory. ‘Global Warming’ is a con game perpetrated by dishonest scientists and the government and corporate leaders who provide the corrupt scientists with opportunities for advancement.

If we fail to stop the further politicization and institutionalization of the fraudulent theory of Global Warming, we will most certainly experience a future of ‘science’ controlled by government decree and of a world government that facilitates the operations of corporate industries while imposing severe restrictions and arbitrary taxes on the general public.

That is a future which would fully justify resistance and rebellion among the international populations who will be the victims of this massive global fraud. If we fail to stop this fraudulent enterprise by legal means, we will certainly have a future of global oppression based on fraud, with its attendant institutionalized crimes, and whatever popular backlash might eventually result.
