Ever since Tucker Carlson blew the whistle on the Left’s conspiracy to slat, control the news and to block unfavorable news about Obama and the democrats, the “mainstream” media has kept mostly silent. Carlson’s blog, The Daily Caller, has a number of articles about JournOlist, here and here.
Now that the conspiracy has been blown, other liberal journalist who weren’t members are distancing themselves at far as they can. You’ll note there is little disagreement with some of the issues and stances proposed by the members of JournOlist, only that they were caught.
Despicable. The whole lot of them. It reminds me when I caught a friend who had stolen from me. When I asked, they apologized and wept. When they had calmed down, I realized they’d said nothing until they were caught. If I’d said nothing, neither would have they.
I heartily applaud Tucker Carlson. He is doing and performing the duties that the Founding Fathers institutionalized in the 1st Amendment, contrary to the members of JournOlist to sought to subvert that Institution.
UPDATE: This is another list called the “Townhouse ListServ”, an invitation only list run by Matt Stoller, “a progressive blogger-turned-senior policy advisor for Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL).“
Townhouse provides the online equivalent of a political backroom for Democratic Party-aligned advocates, consultants and lobbyists. On this closed listserv selected liberals — including bloggers Glenn Greenwald, Markos Moulitsas and Atrios; film maker Robert Greenwald; leaders of liberal think tanks such as Robert Borosage of Campaign for America’s Future; Wes Boyd, Tom Matzzie and other leaders of MoveOn; and other Democratic campaign and PR consultants — can confidentially discuss and debate their issues, strategies and tactics. — SourceWatch.
