I'm shocked....shocked I say...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Oh it just gets better.....

journolist was simply a libtard circle jerk....this pretty much blows the lid off the denials by liberals of media bias...it's not just bias..it's outright activism...

Guess we wont be seeing any liberal comments on this thread...too flat out embarrassing....they might have to face the fact they have been played for suckers for YEARS...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

And a flash back:

For the past two years, several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics have talked stories and compared notes in an off-the-record online meeting space called JournoList.

Proof of a vast liberal media conspiracy?

Not at all, says Ezra Klein, the 24-year-old American Prospect blogging wunderkind who formed JournoList in February 2007. “Basically,” he says, “it’s just a list where journalists and policy wonks can discuss issues freely.”

But some of the journalists who participate in the online discussion say — off the record, of course — that it has been a great help in their work. On the record, The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin acknowledged that a Talk of the Town piece — he won’t say which one — got its start in part via a conversation on JournoList. And JLister Eric Alterman, The Nation writer and CUNY professor, said he’s seen discussions that start on the list seep into the world beyond.

“I’m very lazy about writing when I’m not getting paid,” Alterman said. “So if I take the trouble to write something in any detail on the list, I tend to cannibalize it. It doesn’t surprise me when I see things on the list on people’s blogs.”

Last April, criticism of ABC’s handling of a Democratic presidential debate took shape on JList before morphing into an open letter to the network, signed by more than 40 journalists and academics — many of whom are JList members.

But beyond these specific examples, it’s hard to trace JList’s influence in the media, because so few JListers are willing to talk on the record about it.

POLITICO contacted nearly three dozen current JList members for this story. The majority either declined to comment or didn’t respond to interview requests — and then returned to JList to post items on why they wouldn’t be talking to POLITICO about what goes on there.

In an e-mail, Klein said he understands that the JList’s off-the-record rule “makes it seems secretive.” But he insisted that JList discussions have to be off the record in order to “ensure that folks feel safe giving off-the-cuff analysis and instant reactions.”

One byproduct of that secrecy: For all its high-profile membership — which includes Nobel Prize-winning columnist Paul Krugman; staffers from Newsweek, POLITICO, Huffington Post, The New Republic, The Nation and The New Yorker; policy wonks, academics and bloggers such as Klein and Matthew Yglesias — JList itself has received almost no attention from the media.

A LexisNexis search for JournoList reveals exactly nothing. Slate’s Mickey Kaus, a nonmember, may be the only professional writer to have referred to it “in print” more than once — albeit dismissively, as the “Klein Klub.”

While members may talk freely about JList at, say, a Columbia Heights house party, there’s a “Fight Club”-style code of silence when it comes to discussing it for publication.

But a handful of JList members agreed to talk for this story — if only to push back against the perception that the group is some sort of secret, left-wing cabal.

the 'nasty liberal press conspired to help get Obama elected' line of drivel is the tried-and-true right-wing, river-of-tears, historical press-killed-us excuse.

It can be handily used and inserted into the argument for assorted other 'Pub bed-wettings...out to get Bush II when approval ratings dropped to 27%, out to get Bush I when he lost to Clinton, out to get Reagan on Iran-Contra, out to get Tricky Dick on Watergate, out to get Tailgunner Joe when he was censured by the Senate...

Besides, these days, you got Breitbart cutting and splicing videos to help your cause, so what's the bitch?

Thus when presented with evidence to the contrary...you easily go into denial mode....

The colusion is right before you eyes...and you go blind...

Yet the topic is the press, obama and reverend Wright....scoff a little louder...I dont think they heard you at the WAPO....

Besides, these days, you got Breitbart cutting and splicing videos to help your cause, so what's the bitch?

My cause?....what cause would that be?...Truths and facts?

My cause is truth...what does that make YOUR cause??

And nothing was cut or edited...the entire thing is posted right here:

BTW...you can still make an easy 100,000 bucks if you can find any proof the N ward was used in washinton at the tea party...

And why no comment of Wrights address to the NAACP?

Why no comment of Farrakhans address to the NAACP?

Why no comment on the crowd laughing when Mss Sherrod says she didnt do all she could for the white guy...becuase he was white....this is long before the end of the story...before the ending tale of racial redemtion...
