“Journolist:” Main Stream Media Full of Liberals (I’m SHOCKED)
Remember that Jeremiah Wright guy? You know…that pastor of Obama’s that talked about hating white people and damning America and stuff? One of the many America-hating militants that Barry associated himself with for decades before running for president? Come on…the guy that the media responded to with “so what? do you always agree with your pastor? hey, look at that squirrel?” Remember? Good. Now we’re on the same page.
According to records released to the Daily Caller, all of that “the media luvs liberals” turns out to actually be true. You see, there’s this list of liberal media people (and others) euphemistically called the “Journolist.” Apparently, during the whole Rev. Wright extravaganza, many of our nations “journalists” expressed their anger to each other over the possibility that they might lose out on the most liberal president this country has seen since FDR over some stupid distraction.
Others went further. 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.
In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”
Now wait just a minute. You can say whatever you want about the media being “liberal,” but I can’t believe that anyone would so loosely accuse others of being racists. Wait, what do you mean that, by simply writing this post, I am now a racist?
The entire article isn’t as astonishing as it is funny. I can just see all of these newspaper-type people sitting around their keyboards, drinking a Fanta, and fuming with anger over the fact that the One spends his time with Jeremiah Wright-types. Here’s to hoping more fun revelations comes to pass from the Journolist.
