NY Times Reveals Classified Information, Painfully Obvious Double Standard

If you wonder why people have a hard time trusting the 'main stream media' and think it has a political bias (though I would be surprised if you did) here is a painfully obvious example. This is how the NY Times reported on what used to be a secret government site;

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/29/world/asia/29bagram.html (via)

"The site, known to detainees as the black jail, consists of individual windowless concrete cells, each illuminated by a single light bulb glowing 24 hours a day. In interviews, former detainees said that their only human contact was at twice-daily interrogation sessions.
...
Without commenting specifically on the site at Bagram, which is still considered classified, Mr. Whitman said that the Pentagon’s policy required that all detainees in American custody in Afghanistan be treated humanely and according to United States and international law.
"

Now contrast that to how the NY Times reacted to the already publicly available leaked/hacked emails suggesting a Global Warming fraud among top scientists;

"The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won’t be posted here."
