The sweetest irony in all this is the fact that the Washington Post has made it "name" leaking classified intelligence (Pentagon Papers anyone?). 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.
What's good for the goose, is great fro the gander, WaPo.
WAPO needs to stick with what the know - MACACA.

I still want to unravel the mystery of how the content of the text from the list wound up in the hands of Tucker Carlson. It was Andrew Breitbart who offered up the $100,000 for access to the Journolist.

They should be giving us who, what, when, etc. I would really like to know if there is anything about the BC or his meager past history. Leak some of the posts/emails. We need a good scandal at this point to really put a dent in the credibility(snort) of the LSM right before the elections.

As the proprietor, they know who was on the board and who was not. But that is not the limit of the influence of this sort of thing - when a certain number of even mid-range journalists suddenly start writing about a single issue - Rove as a racist, for example - the others pick up on the refrain because it's news in and of itself. And if it's agreeable to their own biases, to repeat it - by then the story need not have evidence, because they're reporting on the buzz.
I do not get the sense that the Post is so much interested in their own staff's practices and abuses as it is concerned about validating the "extreme, right-wing" complaint that they exist in the first place. That's part of the problem.
They’re too busy exposing our Nations security infrastructure.

Its gonna be real fun to answer every left-wing article with, “So, you must be on JournoList”. Can’t wait.

Well stated. Thanks for posting. Finally seeing a little satisfaction that some of the proverbial chickens are coming back to roost.
