CNN, HuffPo, Reuters Contributors, Reporters Part of Leftwing Network
Media Trackers ^ | August 5, 2014 | Brian Sikma

Posted on 08/06/2014 9:39:44 PM PDT by Tamzee

A prominent CNN commentator, the top two political reporters for The Huffington Post, a Reuters reporter, the editor of The Nation magazine, a producer for Al Jazeera America television, a U.S. News & World Report columnist, and approximately two dozen Huffington Post contributors are among the more than 1,000 members of Gamechanger Salon. Founded by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt, the group is a secretive digital gathering of writers, opinion leaders, activists and political hands who share information, ideas and strategy via a closed Google group.

The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network.

The group was created and run by Soros-backed Billy Wimsatt and started in 2011 so would have been active during the 2012 White House race.

Notice the group is secretive.

If their ideas had any value, they wouldn’t have to be secretive. The ideas would stand on their own. And they would be able to grasp this concept if only they were as smart as they think they are.

You might be missing the fact that this appears to be concrete evidence of something the media openly denies.

“CNN, HuffPo, Reuters Contributors, Reporters Part of Leftwing Network” is breaking news? Seriously?

Don’t you get it?

The perpetrators of this kind of thing would want you to think it’s not a big deal.

But concrete evidence of something that’s only been considered speculative by the mainstream can be a game changer.

I suppose this is somewhat useful information, but I don’t see anyone mentioned who I think has any serious influence over anything, other than brainwashing a small number of really stupid people.

Thank you...

Also wondering how much their coordinating helped Obama win, along with De Blasio, etc... they also appear fairly active in backing Elizabeth Warren in the future.

And Joel Rogers, the Wisconsin professor that wound up leaking the Gamechanger forum existance through having to respond to open records request, is the head of COWS which appears to be directly assisting and coordinating with a Wisconsin state representative, Cory Mason. And this was just one tiny tidbit included in the few emails he released... http://mediatrackers.org/assets/uploads/2014/08/RogersEmails.pdf

Who knows how much more direct coordination took place and what other left-wing politicians they are assisting for free, in secret, at top levels of media and .org groups and funded by Soros....

Wouldn't that be illegal in-kind campaign donations?

Imagine what might happen if the FEC and IRS found out about this? But they're busy doing other things right now.

We had libtard media types meeting and colluding with Kerry at AL Frankens condo on Upper West Side in 2004

Then the email conference group Journolist in 2008 doing the same thing

There is one common trait in at leat 80% of folks in these groups of journalists aside from being libtarded.

And self loathing.

I’m kinda tired of it frankly

And watching them betray not only my country with their colluded attacks on traditional America but now their open hostility to their kinfolks in Israel under attack

A detestable bunch we have here....truly devoid of a moral anchor

Only Mark Levin openly goes after them for what they are

Journalism needs a grunge changer salon.. a place to wash his underpants.

MSM employees are skid marks on Journalism's underpants.

I have always been amazed by the left’s ability to spew lies and know they are doing it. College teachers that lied to us in the class and you could see in their eyes they were lying and knew it. When I was on Facebook, libs would post facts which they KNEW were totally wrong but those lies were ok because they forwarded the lib political view.
When I tell lies, it bothers me and so I don’t like to do it. Even with little kids, I avoid lies and go for omission or hazy concepts. Libs today can look you straight in the eye and lie their boil-infested butts off and then sleep like babies.
Maybe that is why they lead such bitter lives....

I figured they all had to belong to some left-wing political Google group.

Because obviously none of them belong to Google groups about grammar or spelling.

LOOK OBAMA IS A SWORN MEMBER OF THE CHICAGO new socialist (COMMUNIST) party..... AND IT IS A SURPRISE THAT THE SCHLOCK DISHED OUT BY THESE INDIVIDUALS doesn’t have a rancid aroma...and people cant tell pravda-like propaganda when it is offered.. the fact that they even get televised or printed is the amazing part... these people worship at the altar of a failed political system, BUT HAVE THE UNMITGTED GIANT EGOS TO THINK THEY ARE “SPECIAL”... they are as special as the content of any septic tank... communism/socialism/social justice and the free shit crowd are all form of PARASITES... the live off others work and produce nothing useful.......
