Just an observation but 75% of those listed are Jewish. Like a Pro-Hitler newspaper run by Jews circa 1939.

Not being anti semitic, but we need a whole lot more Christian reporters in the media. Seems the Jewish ones are unable to think independently or in an American fashion.

Evil liberals who conspire to defeat liberalism’s enemies and thus gain status amongst the larger mainstream outlets. The pretend journalists of a lot of the larger MSMs are more discreet and less prone to being outed. Regardless, they are all the same - scum not worthy of breathing the air of a free country.

Palin's Shocking Admission: Not Tough Enough To Be President (But he compares her to Reagan)
Politics Daily ^ | July 23, 2010 | David Corn

Posted on Friday, July 23, 2010 4:30:03 AM by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin can't expect anyone to take her seriously as a presidential candidate--not after what she said this week.

In recent days, the former Alaska governor and Tea Party fave has been on a tear against Journolist, a listserv for nearly 500 journalists, policy wonks, and academics, most of whom are self-identified liberals working for self-identified liberal outfits. The participants on this off-the-record email chain promoted their work, debated politics and policy (occasionally quite sharply), and traded and tested ideas for articles and columns. Last month, The Daily Caller, a conservative website, began running articles based on Journolist archives it somehow had obtained. Some conservatives immediately denounced Journolist as a secret cabal that established a party line for the dreaded liberal media.

Palin was one such rightwinger. On Tuesday, citing a Daily Caller article that focused on how several liberal opinion journalists in 2008 were pondering how to respond to stories about Jeremiah Wright (Barack Obama's controversial reverend), she contended that Journolist was proof that the mainsteam media--or, as she calls it, the "lamestream" media--is biased, characterizing Journolist members as "'prominent' mainstream media personalities." That was a misrepresentation: writers and bloggers for The Nation, The American Prospect, Mother Jones (my home base), the Center for American Progress, the New American Foundation, and other liberal media organizations and think tanks are not usually considered mainstream media leaders. (The founder of Journolist, Ezra Klein, did move from The American Prospect to The Washington Post, but he was knowingly hired by the newspaper as a liberal blogger.) It's hardly surprising that out-of-the-closet progressives would share progressive ideas with colleagues. Journolist was no conspiracy; it was a community--a virtual bar, without booze. I explain all that here. (Membership declared: I was a mostly nonactive member of Journolist; I haven't used it in years.)

Palin's blast revealed deep ignorance. Journolistas were generally not prominent MSMers.

Thank you to all who have sent information. Keep it up; we're still working on this. An extra-special thanks belongs to freeper kcvl for the significant research provided.

I'll start adding the keywords from the previous thread.

Well American Secular Jews, like the ones listed here have a mindset that being Liberal is protecting them from another Holocaust. Being played for chumps once again..you can even hear the same arguments Jews in Berlin made in 1933.."Oh why would he do that, he is such a nice man, they need us..."

Poor old republicans that send their children to college only to receive back idiots that hate their parents beliefs and way of life..

Republicans allowed this to happen.. when the feds took over the schools..
And they literally DID NOTHING about it.. to this day...

I know this because.. I'm not very smart.. I'm a republican..

There are some profoundly conservative Jewish news people out there too. Especially if you count the commentators like Dennis Praeger, Mark Levin, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and Charles Krauthammer. Matter of fact, there is Phyllis Chesler, David Horowitz, Aaron Klein (Shmoozing with Terrorists), as well as those who report for the Israeli based "Arutz Sheva", the Jerusalem Post, The Jewish Press, and many who work for the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency).

A minority to be sure, but it is not "all".

At least he admits that attacking the person rather than their message and trying to figure out how to use a Downs Syndrome baby to make his mother look bad are “progressive ideas”.

HORSEFEATHERS!!

Unless it happens to be convenient, advantageous or profitable, American Jews have less to do with Judaism than the Amish. They are LEFTISTS, first and always. Typically arrogant, self absorbed, self important leftists, imbued with the notion than some sort of innate superiority grants them the right to rule the rest of us. The holocaust has nothing whatever to do with their actions except as a convenient excuse.

The author cites the following paragraph by Ezra Klein as evidence that those mentioned were members of JournoList. That's incorrect. Klein was referring to their blogs as being helpful. He did not disclose their names as JournoList members. I suspect they were, but I have not yet found confirmation.

Journolist is meant to serve a very specific purpose that’s actually related to my experience building this blog. The work of this site has always been to illuminate standard political reporting with expert policy commentary. In that, I’ve been helped by the many experts who have adopted the medium as their own: Mark Thoma, Brad DeLong, Paul Krugman, Matthew Holt, Peter Orszag, Andrew Gelman, Larry Bartels, Dani Rodrik, John Sides, among others. As a journalist, it’s hard to always know who to call or which questions to ask. The joy of those blogs is that I don’t have to guess what experts think is important: They simply explain what they think is important and I can use, or follow-up on, the information.
Of the names mentioned above, only Paul Krugman and Brad DeLong are confirmed members of JournoList. The American Thinker indicates that Marc Ambinder admitted he was member of JournoList. I can find no such clear admission and the article doesn't provide a link to it.

(snip)

As for the Journolist project itself, I found it to be a great resource. Extremely smart people engaging in policy debates on the stories of the day. There was no plotting and very little rah-rah rally-the-crowd cheerleading. Debate among members was often quite vigorous, and occasionally even personal. It was not a conspiracy. It was a forum. A members-only coffee shop where people who take ideas seriously, who want access to people who take ideas seriously, could test their own ideas before they refined and presented them to the public. As a reporter, I learned a lot about a lot of subjects. It was an enormous resource, and I’ll miss it.

Here’s a thought - The kind of information you are generating here is the kind of thing that really needs to go into Discover the Networks, one of David Horowitz’s sites.

http://discoverthenetworks.org/

In general, I’ve always though we conservatives needed a way to load more data into that site and make it more of a working tool. It tends to be a bit static is my criticism of it.

Do we know of anyone here who knows him or anyone in his organization?

Not many people realize that for a short time Jeffrey Toobin actually became a freeper and was soliciting input from freeps about the Monica Scandal —a long time ago.

I recall that he was doing that for about 2 weeks or so.

I don’t know if he simply quit, or was banned, no idea.

I remember it clearly, though.
