You probably wouldnt but those interested in current events and bias in the media up to and including colusion of calling certain people racists or the wishing death on a person or even how to shut down a news org that doesnt toe thier line would more likely be interested in this list and what not. :shrug:

If you don't see the significance of this, then the Rev can't help you.

Is he that weasel-looking guy that has a new show? He talks with his hands WAY too much.

The significance of a list of names? Sorry, but I don't know anything about the list, hence my asking questions. If you do not understand the purpose of questions, I am afraid there is no help for you...

:3oops: Ooops, my mistake. I thought there was a link explaining it.

Here's a couple of stories that tells some of the background. Members of the Journolist have also wished for Limbaugh's death (she has now apologized) and looked for ways to have Fox News banned.

I think you might be right. I think he's substituted foe maddow before. I think Ezra Klein (the founder of jounolist) is on Maddow a lot too. I can't stand either one of them.

Yep, they had a lot of trouble trying to figure the best way to trash her though. They debated different tactics for quite awhile.

Yea, their first idea was to point out her inexperience, but then decided against it. They didn't want to draw attention to their guys lack of experience.

No, but they were worried about Trig, because it would be a heart warming story and pro-life. They decided to speculate if she could care for a special needs child while being VP or something similar. She really did scare them.
