Outside of the usual suspects, this seems to be the typical media response to the latest batch of emails stolen from CRU: its just scientists arguing things out, occasionally being mean to one another, but (as was the case with the first batch), nothing science-altering. A couple of things to note.
1) I haven't read them all; just a selection provided at some of the denialist sites. You can find the entire file here if you want to slog through all 180 meg or so, though given the (muted) media response so far there may be no point. In any case, consensus among those who have seen the whole stash is that these new files were from the original CRU Hack in late 2009; there are no emails dated later than November of that year. So they are, in short, the 2nd string stuff--the stuff that wasn't inflammatory enough to release in round one.
2) J. Bowers, frequent commenter at Real Climate, thinks that the introductory material supplied by the hackers means they are definitely not whistle-blowers from within CRU:
Things to note about the latest email set: Instead of using commas in 5,000 and 220,000, they use periods (5.000 and 2.000). That’s not an English speaking way of doing things. They also refer to themselves as “we”. What are the chances that the whistleblower at UEA/CRU would be more than one whistleblower, and they would also not have English as their first language?
Not that anyone really believed the "inside job" theory in the first place.
3) The Norfolk Police, assigned to solve the original CRU hack, haven't, let us just say, given it their all:
I have been passed information stemming from an FoI request to Norfolk Police showing that over the past 12 months, they have spent precisely £5,649.09 on the investigation.
All of that was disbursed back in February; and all but £80.05 went on "invoices for work in the last six months".
In any case, I think the MSM response can be explained by the fact that they overreacted so wildly in the first go round. They've learned a valuable lesson:
PS. There's now a searchable database of the new messages. I'm actually in it!
