Another example of collectivism not working. It breeds corruption.

Most in the “Media” should suffer for their complacency in the downfall and coming suffering of innocents of this great United States of America.

An informed people can make judicious decisions; a people kept ignorant cannot remain free.

“According to reports about Journolist, center-left media members”

Almost stopped reading right there. Wish I would have. The rest of the story could be summed up thus: “It’s the Internet’s fault.”

Knew the leftist hacks at US “News” couldn’t be honest about the Journomarist scandal. All they are doing here is trying to get ahead of the story to control the narrative.

Nest step: Blame Bush, Cheney, Fox, or all three...

My my my, Hillary sure is calling in all her favors isn’t she?

What has been looked over in this story is Hillary getting the short end of the stick by these journalists as they worked to get Obama elected and discredit Palin. And this at a time when the Clinton’s were thought to own the media.

Funny how the drib drab is slowly coming out from the Clinton camp about Obama. From their friends at the Globe running Obama B/C reports, to Bill getting media coverage slamming Obama’s policies while seeming to still be supportive, reports running on how Hillary had the DNC nomination stolen from her and now the Clinton’s coming out against journalists coordinating to help a Dem candidate.

I’m popping lots of popcorn for next year - watching the Clinton machine take on Obama’s when he’s slowly turning into a wounded tyrant will be worth watching. Almost as good as seeing which journalists remain in his pocket after being outed for propagandist they are.

NO, its even simpler than that- the JournoList was an ACTUAL conspiracy, the ‘vast right wing conspiracy’ was IMAGINARY

Once again, instead of admitting it’s a Democrat thing, they pull in Republicans, accusing of things that didn’t happen....

Today's journalism scandal involving liberal media members of the invitation-only "Journolist" listserv discussing ways to help 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama or discredit his press critics is far more organized than the Clinton era "vast right-wing media conspiracy," according to former Clinton aides.

Well of course it's far more organized, considering the vast right-wing media conspiracy DIDN'T EXIST, was a figment of Hillary Clinton's imagination. Good grief.

Oh please.

Lies and misrepresentations from the media are rooted in American history going back to the NYSlimes printing FAVORABLE articles about Nazi Germany.

Frankly...if any of these clowns really knows WHO the ‘Bamster is...and that he is an unqualified presidential candidate, their collusion with the DNC to elect him, would make them and their organizations liable for fraud.

No comparison. The vast right-wing conspiracy was actually the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.

US News and World Report reporter Paul Betard wrote this story.

Bet he is one of the 400 on the Journolist!

Talk about the fox guarding the hen house! They get to not only be part of the scandal, but also be part of the cover up.

Note how they say the Journolist was made up of mostly columnists. Columnists are paid to have opinions. But not straight news reporters. The lie here is that these Journolist conspirators weren't straight news reporters. But they were! Many of them. And THEREIN lies the scandal.

Posing for your readers and viewers as a "just the facts" reporter while conspiring to smear Republicans and support democrats is just plain fraud. Even if only a small percentage overall were straight news reporters, it is a terrible thing to do and stabs the credibility of the media right in the heart. Who can you trust to tell the truth? Not any reporter who was on Journolist! Since they won't release the list of names of who was, we can only conclude that any reporter was.

But they'll do whatever they can to mislead the reader away from that honest and despicable conclusion.

Chris Lehane is the most honest of the people interviewed for this story. He specifically says the JournoList is fundamentally more dangerous than the alleged VRWC.

On another note, I do believe there should be a grassroots outcry for Republicans to refuse interviews or contacts with the media outlets who had their staff represented in the JournoList. If those staffers are not reprimanded (at the least) or fired, no interviews.

This is amazingly corrupt: The American media conspired to elect a president they refused to investigate (by investigating and falsely accusing anyone who would even look at BHO’s background).

Hitler would be so proud of Ezra Klein as would Stalin.
