Way back in the 2004 presidential election campaign, unlike real MSM TV journalists, faux anchorman Jon Stewart was the only “reporter” to ask John Kerry about his supposed misadventures in Cambodia during the Vietnam War.
Flash-forward to 2009: the Business & Media Institute notes “12 Days, 3 Networks and No Mention of ClimateGate Scandal,” but once again…Jon Stewart breaks the embargo, adding, “Why would you throw out raw data from the eighties? — I still have Penthouse magazines from the seventies!”
Heh. Well, that’s one way to get through all the Global Cooling that was going on back then!
Update: And to further bring 2009 full circle with 2004, at the American Enterprise Institute’s blog, Jay Richards writes, “Revenge of the Nerds: Climategate Is Following the Memogate Pattern.”
