A Crickey Mystery About #Gleickgate

On Feb 20 Crikey.com came out with an interesting announcement:

Frozen version

Crikey understands The New York Times will tomorrow reveal the identity of Heartland’s “Anonymous Donor”, an individual who has donated $13.7 million to the Heartland Institute since 2007 and at times has provided 60% of the institute’s funding.

The page says (in the code) it’s been published 2012-02-20T13:11:12+1100

Now as we know, the NYT has published nothing of the sort…actually, Gleick confessed sometimes around midnight GMT between Feb 20 and Feb 21, a little less than 24 hours later.

I wonder if this missed announcement has anything to do with Gleick being forced to reveal himself as the Gleickgate perp. BTW make sure you don’t miss out this thread at Climate Audit.

    it says here as many as 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year.

      I guess my point is where is the line drawn between Gleick hero worship, and incitement to commit wire fraud ?

    I thought it was a typo and NYT was about to announce next year’s secret donor }:-)

    theTruth.org? Just guessing…

    Shub, I find the presence of John Mashey on a thread to be very reassuring. It guarantees that the discussion is worthless! He is one of the regular cheer-leaders at Real Climate and Open (sic) Mind, for example. And if he turns up elsewhere, it is invariably as part of the manure-spreaders.

    He’s never been near Sense or Reason for sure

    In there a place in the Internet where John Mashey has not set foot?
