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.
