There are now 107 confirmed names from the allegedly defunct “JournoList”. And while the whole thing stinks to high heaven (news story manipulation by this gang), I can’t say I’m all that surprised about the names popping up.
But I do have to say I’m quite surprised that one Andrew Sullivan hasn’t surfaced. He’d be the first one I’d expect to have been invited begged to have been put on the JournoList. After all, his Atlantic & TNR buddies Ambinder, Yglesias, Cohn, & Chiat are there. And Sullivan is a “name”. I would have thought he’d be one of the first we’d hear about — no offense to Dave Weigel.
Is it possible that the liberal media, academic & Obama cabal considered Sullivan too wacky for even them? This Daily Dish posting on July 20 suggests Sullivan was in fact left out of the gang.
Or since the JournoList is mostly white straight guys — perhaps they are just racist and homophobic?
