The Wall Street Journal ran editorial today in which M&M were mentioned. They say:
Mr. Mann has never offered a serious rebuttal to the McIntyre-McKitrick critique. He has refused to fully explain his methodology, claiming he’s the victim of "intimidation." That’s odd when you consider that the sine qua non of real science is independently verifiable and reproducible results.
The WSJ editorial shows the pre-Mann temperature graphic from the IPCC 1990 report. It’s pretty remarkable how seamlessly IPCC went from the 1990 graph to the Mann hockey stick. When you think about it, most of the proxy data used in MBH98-99 (and especially the data that "matters") was already around in 1990.
Update: Here is a link to the editorial.
