Climategate controversy has echoes of Watergate, UN says - Times Online

Achim Steiner, director of the UN Environment Programme, said the theft of e-mails had echoes of the Watergate scandal.

"This is not 'climategate' it's 'hackergate'. Let's not forget the word 'gate' refers to a place [Watergate] where data was stolen by people who were paid to do so. So the media should direct its investigations into that."
