Update # – July 1
Quick update on Jed. Here, by answering a question from “IH Fanboy” he comas as close you possibly can get to admiting being paid by IH for slandering Rossi and Penon.
Q [IH Fanboy]:
Jed, there are questions floating around about whether or not you have been paid any money or compensation of any kind by IH or any of its affiliates. Do you want to clear the air and address this issue? I think not answering my inquiry might not work in your favor.
It is none of your damn business.
In a technical debate, you should consider an argument on its own merits without reference to the livelihood of the person making the argument. A complicated technical problem can only be addressed by professionally trained people who work full time on such problems. You cannot expect them to work for free.

It sure looks that way. In this comment Jed Rothwell admits talking ONLY the IH spin:
Our enemies will put fraud front and center. This will be another blow against cold fusion, thanks to Rossi. By the grace of God we may still have money from I.H.,
without which this field would be dead, dead, dead.
Who is “we” , and who is “our enemies“?
Reading Jeds rants it sure seems like the people who are NOT arguing fraud is the enemy … Jed on the other hand is furiously persuing the Rossi/Penon fraud hypothesis in every single comment … … And then he’s refering to the “we” as in “from I.H.” – as if without I.H “this field would be dead ….”
Unless Jed only is speaking pure IH spin from an IH insider point of view, refering only to IH as the “this field” this does not make sense. It’s obvious really. Freudian slip maybe, but obvious.
From this I conclude Jed proved himself to be a paid for, full time, IH spin doctor.
