It would be nice to see a WHC or Congressional correspondent from ABCCBSNBC - somebody who (allegedly) deals in so-called "straight news", although I think there are plenty of print reporters who are allegedly "unbiased" straight news reporters.
These reporters need to be black balled. Any media they work for tarnished as Progressive-Communists operatives. They should be selected for demonstrations and all tea party people should investigate them for any wrong doing, bribes, etc... They must be given the same treatment they would give to conservatives.
Yes. They are going around Eleanor Clift. She must have missed the invitation memo.
On the other hand, it may be mostly a happy boys club.
#58 Jared Bernstein-
Is he *this* Jared Bernstein?:
Current Position: Chief Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph R. Biden
Oh my, potential great catch!
There are a few female names on the list.
And I hate to say it, but there seems to be a HIGHLY disproportionate percentage of Jewish people - or at least people with Jewish sounding names - on that list. Just an observation, not intended to be antisemitic in any way. Of course, I would imagine that if they are Jewish, they're probably JINOS - Jews in name only.
I’m working on adding their organizations after their names. Updates coming soon ...
Yes, absolutely it sure freaking is!
Yes, it's the same man. The Daily Caller highlighted this on Sunday or Monday, in one of their stories. He was a writer for a publication before he came to the WH. I can't remember which one.
From the list, one could conclude a very high percentage of Jewish ancestry find socialism attractive.
I wonder how this list stacks up against the Pravda Correspondance School of Journalism
I’m no expert on names, but I think I count about 22 jews on that list.
And yet they only make up 2% of our population.
If you are able to confirm, with source material, any names that I don’t have listed, please send them to me. I couldn’t find a comprehensive list anywhere, so ... we’ll do it here at Free Republic.
Just skimming it, I bet the number is north of 30 - at least I stopped counting at 30.
There's another group of similar nature but everybody is Italian or Sicilian ~ you just don't know about it ~ nor will you ever without some serious investigations.
BTW, for a variety of reasons i'm exceedingly familiar with the world of the nonprofit publishers ~ and lo and behold I didn't catch any of their people on this list. Doesn't mean they aren't on there, but they appear to not travel in these circles. Probably why they know me too!
Ben Smith and Paul Krugman.
“Yes, it’s the same man. The Daily Caller highlighted this on Sunday or Monday, in one of their stories. He was a writer for a publication before he came to the WH. I can’t remember which one.”
Ping (to keep up with your list! ... nice job).
Wasn’t Joe Klein the so-called ‘reporter’ who was so afraid to write anything truthful about the clintoons that he penned “Primary Colors” as fictional story by ‘anonymous’?
Then when it was discovered he was the writier he APOLOGIZED to the other presstitutes?
How naive are these people to think what they said there was private. Course naivete is a prerequisite for being a liberal.
Yes, the very same.
We now have the e-mail evidence that not only was an leftist agenda being set within the media but regular strategy meeting were held by e-mail and conference call to keep everyone whipped into line and get the Marxist agenda enacted.
In another era, these people would be held accountable and serve time in prison. Now, they are promoted and envied.
“Im no expert on names, but I think I count about 22 jews on that list.”
What is that supposed to mean? And how did you determine it? And why does it matter?
Close. From Wiki....
"He is a regular columnist for the American Prospect online, and he has published op-eds in the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has also written diaries on the Daily Kos"
Does anybody remember this from 2004?
In an effort to galvanize the message Kerry wants to deliver in the time remaining, he convened a powerful roster of journalists and columnists in the New York City apartment of Al Franken last Thursday. The gathering could not properly be called a meeting or a luncheon. It was a trial. The journalists served as prosecuting attorneys, jury and judge. The crowd I joined in Frankens living room was comprised of:
Al Franken and his wife Franni;
Rick Hertzberg, senior editor for the New Yorker;
David Remnick, editor for the New Yorker;
Jim Kelly, managing editor for Time Magazine;
Howard Fineman, chief political correspondent for Newsweek;
Jeff Greenfield, senior correspondent and analyst for CNN;
Frank Rich, columnist for the New York Times;
Eric Alterman, author and columnist for MSNBC and the Nation;
Art Spiegelman, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist/author of Maus;
Richard Cohen, columnist for the Washington Post;
Fred Kaplan, columnist for Slate;
Jacob Weisberg, editor of Slate and author;
Jonathan Alter, senior editor and columnist for Newsweek;
Philip Gourevitch, columnist for the New Yorker;
Calvin Trillin, freelance writer and author;
Edward Jay Epstein, investigative reporter and author;
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., who needs no introduction.
We sat in a circle around Kerry and grilled him for two long hours. In an age of retail politicians who avoid substance the way vampires avoid sunlight, in an age when the sitting President flounders like a gaffed fish whenever he must speak to reporters without a script, Kerrys decision to open himself to the slings and arrows of this group was bold and impressive. He was fresh from two remarkable speeches one lambasting the PATRIOT Act, another outlining his foreign policy ideals while eviscerating the Bush record and had his game face on. He needed it, because Eric Alterman lit into him immediately on the all-important issue of his vote for the Iraq War Resolution. The prosecution had begun.
Not much overlap. Only Eric Alterman.
JournoList? What’s this all about?
He is the one who suggested that the FCC pull Fox's broadcast [sic] license. His email address is:
It does not speak well for UCLA to have an opponent of the First Amendment teaching constitutional law, IMHO.
That's true. It's just not Jewish people, but Jewish people who all seem to have gone to the same 8-10 schools. My guess is there aren't too may Jewish kids from Atlanta, or Missouri on that list. They're all from the Ivies, and they all grew up in the Northeast corridor.
As Tucker Carlson said, it's a recipe for group-think. It's bad to have such homogenization in a so-called 4th Estate, IMHO.
Senator Joe McCarty had a list. He was dismissed and ridiculed as a nut job. In the end, McCarty was right, just as we are.
In another era, these people would be held accountable and serve time in prison. Now, they are promoted and envied.
I demand Congressional hearings! I won't get them, but I demand them.
“Close. From Wiki....”
“He is a regular columnist for the American Prospect online, and he has published op-eds in the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has also written diaries on the Daily Kos”
Good grief...so when I said Pravda, I was giving him credit for being more conservative than he is...
Unless any of them have since passed away, I’ll bet they were members of JournoList. I’ll keep digging. I had forgotten about that. Thanks for the tip.
Ugh! McCarthy. Not McCarty. Typing too quickly, twice.
Not that it matters, but I am curious why so many on the list are Jewish?
There’s some speculation about that on this thread. Keep reading.

The large number of Jews on the list reaffirms the fact that American Jews are leftists FIRST, Jews only when convenient.
Excellent work. Thanks for putting this together. Technology/internet has provided some excellent “truthouts” on the liberal agenda this year.
While I am more and more skeptical of fancy college degrees this Jared Bernstein seems to have a slim economic resume. Note the link page listing his academic background...undergrad in music, masters or doctorate in ‘social work’? And he is an ‘economic advisor’...God help the Republic.
Any links to posts he made? I’ll bet that weasel has his fingerprints on something damning.
Daniel Davies is an analyst and stockbroker working in London. He started his career working in the Bank of England and has been a stockbroker for ten years. He is a member of the Crooked Timber group blog and sporadically maintains d-squareddigest.blogspot.com and a small number of other projects. He is no relation to the heavy metal drummer of the same name, or to the journalist on the Western Mail, although he appreciates both of their work. He is a business school graduate, although not strictly a MBA, because there was an MSc in Finance qualification which was substantially cheaper.
