    Operation Dark Out. All the people of the US must turn their TV off till a trustworthy news source takes hold. Stop feeding the beast and it just goes away one way or the other.

    I think that's happening now.

    WASHINGTON Public trust in the US media is eroding and increasing numbers of Americans believe news coverage is inaccurate and biased, according to a study released on Monday.

    Just 29 percent of the 1,506 adults surveyed by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press between July 22-26 said news organizations generally get the facts straight.

    Sixty-three percent said news stories are often inaccurate, up from 34 percent in a 1985 study, Pew said.

    Sixty percent of those polled said the press is biased, up from 45 percent in 1985. Just 26 percent in the latest survey said that news organizations are careful their reporting is not politically biased.

    Seventy-four percent said news organizations tend to favor one side in dealing with political and social issues. Eighteen percent said they deal fairly with all sides.

    Pew said Republicans tend to be more critical of the news media than Democrats although negative attitudes toward the news media were also increasing among Democrats.

    Fifty-nine percent of those who identified themselves as Democrats said news organizations are often inaccurate, up from 43 percent just two years ago......

    So you think this is fake? The damage to science is nothing, but a bleep on the radar. I still believe in Science, I am still suprised that the right aren't all over these hackers for doing something Illegal.



    It against the freaking law to hack into computers. Remember that guy who hacked into Nasa he got life in prison

    If you don believe me go ask the son of the decorate who hacked Sarah Plain emails. Go to this website for more information about hacking laws.

    Who here has argued that that they did want not illegal, and/or they shudl not be punished?

    Asoide from that, any discussion of what should be done to those that hacked the info is of exceptionally small importance compared to what they uncovered; indeed, it is nothing other than an attemps to obfuscate said larger issue.

    Remember when Newt Gingrich had a cell phone call recorded by a couple in Florida, I don't remember the NYT having a problem reporting on that...

    What was your stance?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Without credibility the damage to science is incalculable.

    There are two issues here. Which do you feel is more important in the long and short run, yet another hacking or the legislation being considered that can litterally affect the livelyhood of tens of millions of people? That very legislation is based on the work of these very scientists who wrote these e-mails. Just think about it a minute.

    If you don believe me go ask the son of the decorate who hacked Sarah Plain emails. Go to this website for more information about hacking laws.
    Once again, you need to concentrate on what is of the greatest importance here.

    These e-mails call into question the quality of that very information.....does it not?
