The Journolist Is Archive Is Wonk Crack
Yahoo! News / The Atlantic Wire ^ | June 21, 2013 | Elspeth Reeve

The archive of Journolist has been released to Gawker by the hacker Guccifer, and it presents a terrible dilemma for anyone connected to the Washington reporter scene from 2007ish to 2009, when it was revealed that some people made fun of Sarah Palin on the secret reporter listserv. As Gawker's Hamilton Nolan explains, it forced some reporters to publicly apologize, stirred up conservative outrage, and Dave Weigel left The Washington Post in the aftermath, only to be hired by Slate.

The listserv caused problems for a few people who were on it. But now that the whole thing is public, it's created a problem for those who weren't. Do you search for your name?(continued)

Some ESL geek at Yahoo screwed it up.

It means, “The archives of the Journ-o-list e-mail list are addictive like crack for lefties seeking gossip about their colleagues.”

Here the source:

Basically, it appears that the writer's assertion is that journalists are more concerned about whether they appeared on the journolist, rather than expressing any concern about the apparent collusion that happened.

Thus, the crack = addiction headline.

I think he took Journolist and made it possessive by adding an “apostrophe s” to the end then “decontracted” it into Journolist is.

In other words, the “Archive of the Journolist is Crack to Wonks”.

Partial Journolist archive leaked; Tweeters overdose on memories of media collusion and html code

Posted at 2:22 pm on June 21, 2013 by Twitchy Staff

Hacker releases JournoList archives? gawker.com/here-is-the-ar… Big deal, I did that in 2010 iowahawk.typepad.com/iowahawk/2010/…
David Burge (@iowahawkblog) June 21, 2013

John McCormack, staff writer for The Weekly Standard, tweeted some Journolist flashbacks in case you’ve forgotten:

@daveweigel Also, Spencer Ackerman trying to coordinate a smear campaign against conservatives by calling them racist dailycaller.com/2010/07/20/doc…
John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 21, 2013

"Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, 'Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares—and call them racists'" dailycaller.com/2010/07/20/doc…
John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 21, 2013

"What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left." dailycaller.com/2010/07/20/doc…
John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 21, 2013

"find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window." dailycaller.com/2010/07/20/doc…
John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 21, 2013

Tweeters have noted that it’s highly unlikely what Gawker released is the entire Journolist archive:

@seanmdav Don't think they've posted the entire archive yet. Say they're currently working on posting but gives link. They shld have waited.—
Jessica Heddings (@JessicaHeddings) June 21, 2013

There is no way the complete Journolist Archive is online. There are only 265 documents in that uploaded archive, about 100 emails.—
Joe Brooks (@joebrooks) June 21, 2013

Read through the Journolist archive published by Gawker. This is not the complete archive. Nothing much there that hasn't been seen before.—
John Sexton (@verumserum) June 21, 2013

One thing everybody can agree on: A great deal of what has been released seems to be html code:

OMG, this Journolist thing was worse than I thought! They spoke in some sort of secret code! http://t.co/5U9LfKrTpF
Alex Parker (@AlexParkerDC) June 21, 2013

That journolist thing is unreadable.—
Jeremy Stahl (@JeremyStahl) June 21, 2013

Here’s the idea of the day:

Someone should get Sarah Palin to crowd-source the Journolist data dump, just for irony.—

“The Journolist’s Archive is Wonk Crack”

Looks like a typo.

These people are rotting corpses, and Palin brought out their inner zombie.

Some of these folks are complete nuts, some—e.g. Micheal Steele—are elevated for no other reason than symbolism, but others are going to be very significant figures in consevative politics because of their own talents and convictions, which appeal to the white voters in part because they confirm their view of the world.-Mark Schmitt

The appointment of Clarence Thomas was going to lead to an increase in black support for Republicans. How’s that going?—Jeffrey Toobin

AND we all know lots of men use prostitutes and think massage therapists are basically prostitutes, this shocked me. I wish I was a lesbian. Al gore, the sanctimonious rapist. I hate him. -Katha Pollitt
