    Day By Day July 30, 2010 – Minimum Work Wage

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    The remaining Journolist archives may prove to be of value in defining who in the MSM and the New Media LEFT is biased enough to ignore. But, then again, the RIGHT has known and been discussing the matter for years.

    However, now, mainstream American voters will be MORE distrustful of what “BIG MEDIA” has to say.

    The Saul Alinsky LEFT has been exposed and the emperor indeed has no clothes.

    Next time we see a coordinated, and seemingly unrelentless grass roots attack on a conservative politician, we will know the origin.

    Day By Day July 27, 2010 – Not The Same Old Crap

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    As more and more of the Journolist archives are published at the Daily Caller, the more cynical American voters will become of their “FREE PRESS.” A coordinated, collusion of group think on the LEFT = Journolist.

    Does anyone think the Founding Fathers of the United States would have ever anticipated such in an internet age?

    I think yes – and, wasn’t that the point of a “FREE PRESS” in the first place?

    Day By Day July 24, 2010 – Washing Out Their Mouths

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    The Journolist flap is really not surprising. The conservative blogosphere has been bitchin’ and moaning about it for years.

    Remember CBS, Dan Rather and the fake/forged George W Bush memos?

    As more and more is revealed by the Daily Caller of the archived list, there will be more embarassments. But, will ANY of these so-called journalists decry these activities?

    Doubtful. The LEFT will try to find a comparable RIGHT list or demonize someone to change the subject.

    Pretty standard.

    Day By Day July 23, 2010 – Journolist Turns to Cabalist

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    Yes, Chris, it has been rumored there is a developing new JOURNOLIST by Ezra Klein et. al. called the CABALIST.

    Blogosphere, please join me in celebrating the birth of Cabalist, the wittily-named successor to Ezra Klein’s infamous Journolist, the listserv of liberal bloggers, pundits and academics that inadvertently brought down (very temporarily) the ex-Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel, and which is now the  subject of an endless and embarrassing (for certain former Journolist participants) investigation by The Daily Caller, which has discovered e-mail chains suggesting that certain Journolist members were secretly devising partisan campaigns to advance Democratic Party interests.

    Guess the LEFT loves the GROUP THINK and need to coordinate their political messages for their political hack friends. Or maybe they just need some therapy and reassurance that their message is acceptable?

    I belong to a listserv called Rightblogs which is run by that Truth Laid Bear guy and if anyone thinks the RIGHT journalists try for group think? Uhhhhh NO!

    Well, ask Rob and he can mail you the archives.

    For a price, of course.

    Day By Day July 22, 2010 – Journolist Collusion

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    Say it ain’t so, Chris.

    You mean the LEFT-leaning MSM and New Media folks actually participated in group-thinlk promoting their causes and candidates, like Barack Obama?

    I guess so and The Daily Caller has been publishing the archives of Journolist which were deleted by Ezra Klein when it became apparent that the “journalist” corruption would be further exposed and after Dave Weigel was fired (resigned) from the Washington Post.

    Let’s look at the listsev when their candidate Barack Obama won the Presidency:

    Nov. 3:

    DAVID ROBERTS, GRIST: It’s all I can do not to start bawling.

    LUKE MITCHELL, HARPER’S: I’m picturing something like VJ Day in Times Square. Seriously!

    JOHN BLEVINS, SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW: It’s all I can do to hold it together.

    Nov. 4:

    across the street at my polling place, and the line is wrapped around
    the block. I nearly burst into tears when I saw it. I’m feeling like
    today is closing the door on a terrible era, and opening another. I’m
    glad you started this thread because I was feeling kind of like I was
    the only one who is deeply emotional today.

    to close my office door yesterday because I was watching YouTube videos
    of elderly African Americans saying what this meant to them and tearing

    JOSH BEARMAN, LA WEEKLY: 11 months
    ago I burst into tears by myself on a plane while watching Hardball when
    my mind wandered to the image of President Obama being sworn in. I’ve
    been fighting it ever since.


    ALEC MCGILLIS, WASHINGTON POST: If you need further
    proof that VA is looking to go blue, check out what’s going on in VA-5
    in deepest Southside Virginia, where Tom Perriello, my college roommate
    and a very good guy, is now up .06 percentage points — 2,000 votes —
    against Virgil Goode with 88 percent reporting.

    GREG ANRIG, THE CENTURY FOUNDATION: This is really happening.

    ADELE STAN, THE MEDIA CONSORTIUM: At last I can breathe.


    STEVEN TELES, YALE UNIVERSITY: I’m not sure why, but
    this part of the Battle Hymn of the Republic came to me . . . . Glory!
    Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
    Since God is marching on.

    SPENCER ACKERMAN: [quoting Obama] “…we may not get there in one year or in one term, but America I promise you, we as a people will get there.”


    MICHAEL TOMASKY, THE GUARDIAN: I’m just jelly. Lord!

    the responsibility we have taken on. Tomorrow a desperately ill
    African-American woman will present at my university hospital for care,
    and she will be turned away. She will expect us to live up to what we
    feel tonight. So we’ve got a lot to live up to.


    SPENCER ACKERMAN: Goddamn, did an Obama speechwriter ghost that post? That’s pitch-perfect, Adam. Take a bow.

    today, courtesy of a Facebook friend: “I wonder if Sarah Palin is still
    unclear about what a community organizer does.”

    Nov. 5

    SETH MICHAELS, MYDD.COM: there are flag-waving whooping crowds around the white house. afl-cio hq is insane here.

    imagine anything like it except a world series/superbowl win, and
    several of my co-walkers told me it never gets the entire city so riled.
     i think what makes it even more amazing is the incredible diversity in
    this city and how we all came together for this, especially in victory.

    MOIRA WHELAN, NATIONAL SECURITY NETWORK: I’ve never felt anything like U Street tonight. Huging, kissing strangers…everything.

    But, never fear there is a new list for LEFT group-think.

    And, they talk about the vast RIGHT wing conspiracy………

    Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright and the American Journalism Obituary

    President Barack Obama visits the White House press briefing room, January 2009

    Andrew Breitbart is RIGHT.

    American journalism died a long time ago; today Tucker Carlson got around to running the obituary. What The Daily Caller has unearthed proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that most media organizations are either complicit by participation in the treachery that is Journolist, or are guilty of sitting back and watching Alinsky warfare being waged against all that challenged the progressive orthodoxy. The scandal predictably involves journalists posing as professors posing as experts. But dressed down they are nothing but street thugs. They deserve the deepest levels of public consternation. We must demand that they do.

    The only way that the media will recover from the horrifyingdiscoveries found in the Journolist is to investigate and investigateuntil every guilty reporter, professor and institution is laid bare begging America for forgiveness. Will they do it?

    Killing stories to benefit Barack Obama. What a shocker.

    Mickey Kaus Scoops the Secret Left-Wing E-mail Group – JOURNOLIST


    Yeah, Mickey Kaus has the scoop. Enjoy reading the high brow, sophisticated discussion here.

    Why would these idiots ever think that some of their comments on a Google Groups list via e-mail would NOT Leak out?

    Jeff Goldstein:

    Think “Woodward and Bernstein bring down Nixon,” only replace “Woodward and Bernstein bring down Nixon” with “A bunch of guys who were beaten up daily in junior high show why they almost certainly had it coming.”

    Murrow wept.

    Jonah Goldberg:

    Obviously, it’s just one excerpt and I’m sure there are serious conversations that take place over there, too. But even going by that one example, it’s pretty clear that the list itself and the qualities and qualifications of those on it is a major concern to those on it. It’s like the liberal egghead version of Heathers.

    This Kaus scoop will keep on giving and Flap is positive there will be many more posts plus additional leaks.

    One, finally for the morning: re: Keith Olbermann and Journolist:

    Matthew Yglesias: I also read on TNR.com today that Jonah Goldberg, who believes that everyone on this list is a fascist, is “good-humored,” while Keith Olbermann’s work is best analogized to Glenn Beck or Michael Savage.

    Ed Kilgore: To be fair, Cottle was writing about self-styled Pundit Types, not making comparative judgments of worth. I actually don’t think Olbermann much ever achieves the heights of hysteria routinely maintained by the well-named Savage, but the pretence [sic] by some of us admirers of Keith that he’s a paragon of reasoned discourse is a bit much, too.
    [ed. snicker]

    Jonathan Chait: Perhaps, if his work is going to be brought up here 2 or 3 times a week, he should be invited on the list. Or is the point of this to create a forum where certain people can be criticized (or, more precisely, called names) without the criticizer having to fear a response?

    Jesse Singal: Everyone I know who likes Olbermann also acknowledge that he is egomaniacal [sic] and has a penchant for hysterical drama. The main difference, which is glaringly left out by anyone who conflates him with the Savages and O’Reillys of the world, is that Olbermann doesn’t tend to, you know, lie about stuff regularly.

    [ed. hysterical chuckling]

    Michael Cohen: Personally, I find Olbermann insufferable, but I’m not sure I buy the comparison.

    Read the rest and mock away…….

    Ben Smith of Politico Tires of Twitter – Prefers Left Wing Private JournoList Listserv

    Left Wing blogger Ben Smith over at Politico is whining because George Stephanopoulos over at ABC is interviewing Senator John McCain on Twitter.

    Anyone else getting a little sick of Twitter-as-intriguing-and-shiny-new-toy?

    Guess Smith prefers JournoList where he obtains his “talking points.”

    And, which is NOT on a public timeline.
