Media Matters Journalist Takes Umbrage at Suggestion Journolist Still Operating
TrueblueNZ ^ | 01/29/11 | Redbaiter

Posted on 01/31/2011 3:51:44 PM PST by wistful

Re Journolist- "Members of the list claimed that it had been abandoned after its discovery. I have always doubted the truth of that claim, and I reckon the slavish use of the word “Reaganesque” in the mainstream media after Obama’s State of The Union speech proves it is still operating. Part of Obama’s repackaging for the 2012 election includes the meme that he has “moved to the center”. A lie. Just a typical left wing propaganda lie. But you can bet the left wing mainstream media, Journolisters and those influenced by the Journolisters, will push if for all they are worth."


TOPICS: Government; Miscellaneous; Politics
KEYWORDS: bias; journolist; media
After publishing the post referenced above, I'm under attack from journalists who deny being part of Journolist. They want the list taken down. They've even made it a news item on news site FishbowlDC

I think the list is valid. I sourced it from posts on Free Republic. Wondered though how a person gets to be named on this list, and if there was a version of the list anywhere substantiating the inclusion of any individual journalists. How does a journalist's name get to be added to this list?

When Obama takes the big dive they will go with him.

The people on this list are the ones who admitted it before and were named by others.

The common thread pushed by the MSM seems to be too tightly controlled to be an accident - therefore, yes, journalist still exists, just not openly.

Seems to be a real connection between like thinking leftists and the day’s headlines. Just another good reason to disregard most information from the MSM...

I read on FR that they formed a smaller group as soon as journolist was discovered but cannot remember the new name.

I’m sure they call it something else now.

By the way the big push against the TEA Party and Palin after the Tucson massacre came from the White House according to the American Spectator.

I doubt seriously they would abandon acting and looking like fools. It’s probably still there.

This guy Eric is on the list; but his name seems to be misspelled.

I created the list of 157 names. I included my sources documenting the evidence for every single JournoLister.

JournoList is defunct. Ezra Klein closed it. A few of the J-listers created a new, smaller, more exclusive list called “Cabalist.” Last reports indicate 174 members.

I don't doubt you are right and they are lying. It reminds me of when Joe "Bananas" Bonanno took Tucson mayor "Diamond" Jim Corbett for a ride in his limo, and assured him there were no mafia in town. The suicide of the town's biggest jeweler and the bombings of various smaller establishments had nothing to do with organized crime, he said.

Nah. Laz is the rock star. He’s gonna create a browser add-on that warns you when you’re reading material authored by a J-lister. Now that will be sweet!

I am, in fact, working on that very browser add on. I am already at the point where the browser addon adds-on. I also have been able to address and manipulate the objects on the addon. I haven’t yet figured out the uninstall process (I don’t want a simple disable, I want you to be able to uninstall it). I also need to learn how to make the addon monitor and flag character strings for detection of the phrases “By (author name)”, “Author (author name)”, or similar phrases that imply authorship.

Oh, and the source code will be treated as open source. If you have dot-Net, you can compile it yourself. I want no one to suspect anything funny or heinous in my code. I don’t play like that anyway, but still.

I will review my source information for Eric Boehlert and Matt Steinglass. If they can dispute my information, I will remove them from the list. I did so with two or three others.

What’s the difference between a reporter and a journalist? I am asking in a half series/half joking manner!

Thanks for the links and the advice folks. I’m getting some pretty nasty comments that I have had to delete.

Whether the actual “Journolist” still exists or not, is not all that important. We know that mainstream media journalists commonly collude on what to write in news and opinion pieces so as to advantage Democrats and disadvantage Republicans. In many cases, they merely repeat White House / Obama propaganda.

They were caught out once. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind they would do the same thing again.

They are not journalists they are political agents dispensing propaganda. Just like they did in Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy. (read Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg).

A nasty stain upon our civilization, and a condemnation of the universities where they were trained.

OK- I’ll check back for news. Thanks.

Matt Steinglass signed a letter to ABC that originated and was circulated on JournoList. There were a few who signed the letter after it was circulated who denied being part of JournoList. I removed them from the list at their request. If he claims he was not a JournoList member, I will remove him from the list. We want the list to be accurate.

Could you, Buckeye, crossreference this list against yours, unless it was sourced by your list?

There are patterns to the things being pushed. We need to keep a running list.
