Welcome to Free Republic.

Please don’t use this list to harass the J-listers. If you feel compelled to write an e-mail or letter, that’s your business.

The purpose of this list is to make readers aware that these journalists, bloggers, and authors participated in JournoList. Their participation on the JournoList listserv speaks to the credibility of their work.

UGH. I just read the thread about “Palin’s Downs child” and I am disgusted. Sure, there were some that were “leave this alone; this is bunk”, but the ones that were studying videos of her and thinking this could be the thing that brought her down were just...icky.

What a bunch of disgusting bottom-dwellers.

As we suspected, all along. We knew there was coordination, because the comments were all so similar. They were a liberal echo-chamber that shared, then spewed their carp about conservatives from their various media outlets.

Ping to an updated JournoList.

Thank you for the updated list.

Wasn't there some story about BO and MO meeting with some Palestinian/Muslim activists at a dinner in Los Angeles before the election? There were pictures of them posted here. I understand the LA Times had the story (plus video) and sat on it/killed it. It would be interesting to see someone from the LA Times eventually appear on the complete list.

Great post!
Bookmarked.

From now on it will be worthwhile to check the authors of pieces posted here to see if the author is on this list. If the author is on the list, then everybody will know that what they are reading is an agenda-driven pack of lies and distortions.

To: Lancey Howard

The 2008 presidential election may someday be regarded as the most stupendous confidence trick in American history and the mainstream media may be damned for aiding and abetting this crime with a most egregious failure of professional responsibility.

Virtually the entire paper trail of the current president’s existence has never been released or allowed to be subjected to any sort of scrutiny, despite several years of repeated requests by numerous individuals and non-traditional media organizations. His original typewritten long form birth certificate, school records, SAT and LSAT scores, college and law school transcripts and term papers, medical records, passport history and other relevant documents all remain deeply hidden away. This degree of comprehensive secrecy is unprecedented in American political history. Every modern presidential candidate has willingly released these records and documents upon request, sometimes directly to the campaigns of their rivals, thus acknowledging that the process of running for president should be the toughest job interview on the planet. The current president is the sole exception. The Obama 2008 campaign and subsequent administration has to date spent in excess of three million dollars in legal fees to fight Freedom of Information Act filings and other requests to examine these documents and records. What is being hidden and why are they hiding it?

Since 2008 the great preponderance of mainstream media coverage relevant to this basic issue of truth and accountability has selectively focused on the so-called “birthers” and portrayals of them as irrational or disturbed individuals obsessed with the belief that the current president was born in Kenya or Indonesia or outside of the United States and is thus ineligible for this office. In fact, astute observers in corridors of power and other quarters have always rejected this notion, amid widespread and growing speculation that the impossibility of Obama ever producing his original typewritten long form birth certificate is a matter of true paternity rather than place of birth. More and more people have used a search engine to find and compare photos of the late CPUSA member and radical activist Frank Marshall Davis with photos of the current president and photos of the late alcoholic bigamist Kenyan Barack Obama “Sr.” The Obama 2008 campaign did release a computer generated short form version of a birth certificate, but this only made matters worse for them, intensifying the requests to see the original typewritten long form document.

Journalism used to be about the search for truth. You may decide for yourselves how you might describe it at the present time.

The Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms had absolutely no interest in vetting their boy Ubama. None. They were afraid of what they might find (and then have to spike). Yet the Associated Press sent a platoon to Alaska to dig through the Palin's garbage. That will tell future historians all they need to know about today's press. ...And one thing about history - - it won't be so easy for the liberal scum to "revise" anymore. There's too many trails nowadays.

This is more than about shaping the news. It is how the “elite” an “intellectuals” think about the rest of us. The disdain below is for the South, but I am sure we are not alone on their “holier than thou” list.

I think someone should call on Dear Leader and request a REPUDIATION of these remarks made by so many of his supporters, ESPECIALLY in light of how they portray the Tea Party. (pot meet kettle) I bet there is much more hate spread around in the emails not released.

They want a deficit driven militarist/heterosexist/herrenvolk state. Because remember: They also don’t want to pay any taxes. That’s the limited government part. But they want their grandparents to have Medicare. It’s not exactly a coherent world view.

I’ll say it for a second time, then I’ll stop: We should split into two. Live and let live. As MacGillis reminded us yesterday, the founders never imagined a country so large anyway.

The only catch I didn’t mention the other day is sports, but I think the two nations would simply have to agree by treaty that all sports, pro and college, will just continue as before.

As he wrote in his HS yearbook: “I want to be in the band

of Little Richard.” Just another Dixie wannabee….and his mentor, Woody G, was from OK…

yes, but now there are lots of black people in the north, so we can still have all that great music etc. the south served its cultural purpose and can now be left to go its own way, like they say they want to do. We can check back in fifty years and see who’s better off.

I’m fine with splitting into two countries. Let those b@st@rds get the hell out of the way of our prosperity. It’s a deal. Check back in 50 and I’ll bet we’re kickin’ their @sses. I’d love to see the looks on their faces when they run out of OPM and food.

I don’t see any way to mend this cultural divide.

Thanks. Your good work continues. I now listen to a variety of news sources to hear the common threads. It helps to sort important from bull. Somewhere in all of this we may arrive at truth.

These people on this list are all white, aren't they? Did Journolist have a black member? Why are they all white? Didn't they let blacks participate? Could it be, perhaps, racism? I noticed they are largely male too. Could it be, perhaps, sexism?

I saw photos of Obama Sr, Davis and Malcolm X alongside one of BHO. X had the most likeness and apparently had even met Stanley Ann . . . .

I thought the same thing. Suicidal Jews. Seems they’re the ones with memory lapse. Or do they really believe they’d be immune.

Excellent. We should never forget the JournoList cabal. I asked him to link to the most current version of this list. Thanks for letting me know.
