WaPo Frantically Trying to Polish Climategate Turd

In a transparent front-page apologia Washington Post writers David A. Fahrenthold and Juliet Eilperin stack the deck with loaded language without ever mentioning the word "whistleblower" [emphasis added]:
It began with an anonymous Internet posting, and a link to a wonky set of e-mails and files. Stolen, apparently, from a research center in Britain...They don't provide proof that human-caused climate change is a lie or a swindle...The stolen electronic files...e-mails were pirated...For a few, however, the stolen files...One of the stolen stolen e-mail...
Notice that the WaPo writers focus on the leaked emails and never ever mention the smoking guns buried in the software code.

What's that smell? Better polish a little harder guys, put your backs into it.
