[Reading this related article in its entirety is recommended.]
“What we had were journalists creating a "community" in which we see expressions of hatred that are both comically adolescent and almost psychopathic. We have them endorsing slander of innocent people simply because they hold a different point of view, comparing the Tea Party movement to Nazism, and participating in a post thread with the subject, "The line on Palin." And we have journalists endorsing a "tough legal framework" to control what a news organization says. What we have, in short, is intellectual corruption of a fairly high order. From what we have seen and from what those like Tucker Carlson and his colleagues (who have read the exchanges in detail) say, Journolist was — at least in good measure — a hotbed of hatred, political hackery, banality, and juvenile thuggery. […] Journolist provides a window into the mindset of the journalistic and academic left in this country.”

"People we no longer have to listen to: would it be unwise to start a thread of people we are grateful we no longer have to listen to? If not, I’ll start off: Michael Rubin." Laura Rozen (
"Mark Penn and Bob Shrum. Anyone who uses the expression “Real America.” We should send there [sic] a** to Gitmo!"Michael Cohen (New America Foundation)
"Michael Barone? Please?"Jesse Taylor (
"Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich (afraid it’s not true), Drill Here Drill Now, And David Addington, John Yoo, we’ll see you in court?"Laura Rozen (
"As a side note, does anyone know what prompted Michael Barone to go insane?"Jeffrey Toobin (The New Yorker)
"Ledeen."Matt Duss
"Let’s just throw Ledeen against a wall. Or, pace Dr. Alterman, throw him through a plate glass window. I’ll bet a little spot of violence would shut him right the f*** up, as with most bullies."Spenser Ackerman (Washington Independent)
"Pete Wehner…these sort of things always end badly."Joe Klein (Time)
"F****** Nascar retards…"Eric Alterman (Author, What Liberal Media [sic])
Spitz wrote that if Rush Limbaugh went into cardiac arrest, she would "laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out" as Limbaugh writhed in torment.Sarah Spitz (NPR-affiliate KCRW)
Ackerman urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Jeremiah Wright by changing the subject. "Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics", Ackerman wrote — "Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists."Spenser Ackerman (Washington Independent)
Donmoyer adds this: "You know, at the risk of violating Godwin’s law, is anyone starting to see parallels here between the teabaggers and their tactics and the rise of the Brownshirts? Esp. Now that it’s getting violent? Reminds me of the Beer Hall fracases of the 1920s."Ryan Donmoyer (Bloomberg)
"I am genuinely scared" of Fox, wrote Davies, because it "shows you that a genuinely shameless and unethical media organisation *cannot* be controlled by any form of peer pressure or self-regulation, and nor can it be successfully cold-shouldered or ostracised. In order to have even a semblance of control, you need a tought legal framework."Daniel Davies (Guardian)
"I agree", said Scherer. “[Roger] Ailes understands that his job is to build a tribal identity, not a news organizations. You can’t hurt Fox by saying it gets it wrong, if Ailes just uses the criticism to deepen the tribal identity.”"Michael Scherer (Time)
