Your Daily Flaming Dumbass: So-Called Journalists

According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

How Jonathan Strong restrained himself from prefacing “journalists” with “so-called,” I’ll never fathom.

This is what they call, in the News Biz, a “smoking gun.”

In an article filled with money quotes, this is hitting the Lottery:

“If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them–Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares–and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? This makes *them* sputter with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.”

One can only hope he didn’t learn that in Journalism Skool.

Chris Hayes of the Nation posted on April 29, 2008, urging his colleagues to ignore [“Reverend”] Wright. Hayes directed his message to “particularly those in the ostensible mainstream media” who were members of the list.

Well now! There’s a salient point to pause and ponder: Journolist was not only populated by writers for flamingly Marxist canary cage liners like The Nation, but by “those in the ostensible mainstream media” (I would categorize Time the same way, but probably not for the same reasons as Hayes). So where were they in all this, when the scum-sucking liars on the Left were plotting to bury an obviously newsworthy story to help their favored candidate, these purportedly mainstream “journalists”?

(crickets)

I’d wish every member of Journolist, both those actively promoting this lie and passively accepting it, a career flipping burgers–but they probably don’t have the ethical capacity to work at McDonalds.

If you read one article this year, read that one.
