Skip to comments.At Washington Post, mumís the word on JournoList

f any large publication stands to suffer from the JournoList controversy, its the Washington Post. The paper hired JournoList founder Ezra Klein from the left-wing publication The American Prospect, and Klein continued to run JournoList while at the Post. In June, the paper quickly accepted the resignation of David Weigel, whom it hired from the left-wing publication The Washington Independent, over comments made on JournoList. (Klein announced he was shutting down the list-serv shortly thereafter.) It is not known whether other Post writers, some of whom also came to the paper from left-wing publications, took part in JournoList; I have asked a couple, and they havent yet responded.
Now, courtesy of the Daily Caller, weve had a peek inside the discussions on JournoList, and it reveals some writers and staffers at left-wing publications like the Nation, as well as ostensibly mainstream outlets like NPR and Bloomberg, making intemperate remarks about conservatives, advocating that some conservatives be arbitrarily branded as racists, drawing parallels between Tea Partiers and Nazis, and appealing to fellow journalists on the list-serv to ignore the controversy over then-candidate Barack Obama and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

“Now, that very same principle - an insider leaking “confidential” information to the outside - is being exercised in the media world, with the Washington Post up to their collective asses in it.”
Well stated. Thanks for posting. Finally seeing a little satisfaction that some of the proverbial chickens are coming back to roost.
They are giving us who, what, when, where they were racists.
It's a quaint notion.
I think it's all the news that fits their agenda.
In the Journolist discussion (which has 240+ members of the liberal press among its ranks), one makes mention that George Soros’ Media Matters “watchdog” group are their friends.
Mention that the next time Media Matters fabricates a controversy.
More quotes were leaked out today.
At least we’re finally getting some weapons to fight back against the Soros octopus with.
Facts that don’t push the story line are ignored.
Maybe it’s where the Washington Post and other MSM outlets got the idea for subtle bias from... “if it don’t fit, don’t print.”
Wonder what the soros parallels are to back when Rockafeller had the USA by the shorthair?
Oh don’t you mean “All the news WE CAN CONTROL that is fit to print”?
“good spelling eh...Id think Id been drinking...well I have”
Well, i’ve been down-scaled to drinking cheap beer and $4 a gallon white lightning made by “good ol’ boys” in the southern hollows. (God bless ‘em)
You got names, addresses and pictures of these “Journo-lists?” I need them for a research project I’m writing titled “Monkey See, Monkey Do: A Wholly Reasonable Dissertation on the Evils of Drinking Rat-Infested Kool-Aid.”
