The future of news

Its kind of like the Damian McBride thing or the MPs Expenses, where the internet has hold of a news story, but the way to blow it wide open is awkward. These hacked emails from CRU, there's hundreds of them and many of them contain things that could be news stories, so how to handle and avalanch of so many at once?

There's dozens of bloggers and climate sceptics ploughing through, looking for dirt, but once they find it, what's to do, where to publish? other than their own blog? just adding to the information avalanch.

The Air Vent does a good job here of listing links to stories in the mainstream media

Climate Skeptics See ‘Smoking Gun’ in Researchers’ Leaked E-Mails

The Examiner has had it for a while, as has the Guardian and the Telegraph. Rush Limbaugh carried it and the Drudge Report ran a piece.

Are there any other MSM links around?

Which is neat. But will it change the minds of any politicians. Can we cut fuel duty now?
