The JournoList started by Ezra Klein as a place where liberal media elites could share ideas (i.e., make sure they had their stories straight) has been exposed as a repository of liberal elite media trash talk. But it gets worse. Klein took credit for designating the gathering the JournoList:
For the past two years, several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics have talked stories and compared notes in an off-the-record online meeting space called JournoList.
Proof of a vast liberal media conspiracy? Not at all, says Ezra Klein, the 24-year-old American Prospect blogging wunderkind who formed JournoList in February 2007. “Basically,” he says, “it’s just a list where journalists and policy wonks can discuss issues freely.”
There is a British blog called JournoList, which describes itself as “an annotated list of sites chosen to help reporters, writers and editors make good use of the Internet.”
OMG, did Klein plagiarize the original JournoList? If so, the JournoListas are not even real JournoListas, they are PlagiarListas writing on the PlagiarList.
