Looks like an independent investigation done at the behest of the Pacific Institute has confirmed that Peter Gleick did not write the disputed fakegate memo. The Pacific Institute has re-instated him back to his position as president of the Institute
And an independent digital forensic investigation done at the behest of Heartland institute found that the disputed memo was not created on Heartland’s computer system and didn’t exist there or in Heartland’s email system prior to its publication on February 14, 2012.
So we still have no idea where that memo came from.
why hasn’t the HI filed their threatened suit yet? It seems to me that the sooner they file it the better, given what’s recently happened to their reputation. Wouldn’t such a suit — now or four weeks ago — be a strong counterpunch?
