One question: Why do you believe Will Bunch’s denial?
I added him to the list because he signed the complaint letter about the ABC presidential debate. Ezra Klein said that the letter originated on JournoList and was signed by JListers.
Apparently, there were at least three people who signed that letter after it was circulated on JournoList: Will Bunch, Cenk Uygur, and Foster Kamer. They’re posting articles about how false this list is because they’re on it and weren’t on JournoList.
I’m trying to be as accurate as possible. So I removed them from the list. (Well Foster Kamer will be removed on the next update.) I have about 50 - 75 additional names that I believe were members of JournoList, but I won’t add them until I’m able to confirm their participation.
What I’ve found is that the JListers were proud to be on JournoList. It was an invitation-only cool kids’ club. So for these three to admit that they weren’t part of the club is probably accurate. Those on the list laugh about it and “wear” it with “pride.” They like being part of a cabal. That’s why they’ve started Cabalist.
