The Journolist List

Been away from blogging for a bit, but have been edified and amused by the Chinese Water Torture leak of the Journolist-gate scam--you know, the secret listserv area where a select cadre of Marxist and faux-Marxist reporters conspired to collectively elect Barack Obama by smearing his opponents while covering up their favored candidate's glaring inadequacies. Particularly his relationship with the odiously racist "Rev." Wright?

Breitbart and Tucker Carlson have been doing fantastic work on reporting this ongoing scandal, openly deploying the kind of effective, Alinsky-style tactics consistently used by Party hacks disguised as respectable journalists--except that Breitbart et. al. are actually publishing the truth and exposing the villainy that helped throw the last election. All this and more following on the heels of ClimateGate and the apparently multiplying alleged Algore sex scandals. (Must tamp down the overwhelming urge to to indulge in schadenfreude.)

I noticed today that the entire Journolist list--the journalist Hall of Shame in my book--has been posted on Mark Levin's Facebook page and elsewhere. Levin, Carlson, Breitbart and others (like Dan Riehl) get the credit for this ongoing good work. But as a public service, to help out in case you haven't caught the references, I'm replicating Levin's Journolist roster (credited in turn to the Freepers) here.

A passage from the New Testament comes to mind here as I ponder the unprincipled work of these Journolist swine:

15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes or thorns, or figs of thistles?

Like one of my old Merchant Marine sailing buddies said to me many years ago, "Truer words was never spoke." Anyhow, here's the list, prefaced by a brief introductory explanation:
