But he didn't. And so the single best MSM article on ClimateGate comes from David Rose of the UK's Daily Mail. Bookmark this.
If you want to understand what "hide the decline" means, start here. This is simply astonishingly good reporting: accurate, in-depth, going to all the major sources. All I can say is that Rose must read Borepatch.
Well done, Mr. Rose.
UPDATE 13 December 2009 15:00: Roger Pielke, Jr. has a post up about how he has asked Rose for a correction of a misquote. I don't believe it changes the overall thrust of the Daily Mail's article.
