This is absolutely no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention. The left consists of the most radical elements of society. We've spoken out for a long time about Barack Obama's own ties to radical communists and anti-American reprobates, and have tried to point out just how dangerous these people are to Liberty and Freedom. Now that Journolist has been exposed, yet another layer of the onion has been peeled back, and we see that a good many of those in the so-called "mainstream media" are fellow travelers, and hard at work spiking stories to follow their radical left wing agendas.
The website New Zeal has compiled a report on the 106 known Journolisters. To no one's surprise, most have ties to major communist and socialist organizations. Some have ties to George Soros, Barack Obama's boss, and partner in crime, and some have even come out in support of murdering domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.
Some of these people you have never heard of, but many of them are people you've probably read on a regular basis.
From New Zeal:
The now closed down JournoList, has caused considerable controversy in recent weeks. According to its opponents, JournoList, teamed up some 400 prominent "progressive" journalists in an effort to smooth Barack Obama's path to the White House.
There have been accusations that "Journolitstas", deliberately sought to downplay Obama's association with the Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright and tried to smear conservatives, or opposing journalists as "racists".
This post looks at 106 reported "Journolistas" to look for connections or common threads.
Of the known "Jounolistas" and organizations listed below, many can be linked back to two interrelated groups Democratic Socialists of America, the U.S.'s largest Marxist based organization and D.S.A.'s "brain" the Washington DC based, far left "think tank" the Institute for Policy Studies
Between them. D.S.A. and the I.P.S. dominate or influence several organizations affiliated to JournoList, including;
*The American Prospect - Founded in 1990 by D.S.A. affiliate Robert Kuttner. Current editor at large is leading D.S.A. member Harold Meyerson
*Mother Jones - Includes D.S.A. member Adam Hochschild on its Board of Directors, plus some D.S.A. affiliated staff and contributors. Hochschild was a supporter of Progressives for Obama
*Economic Policy Institute - Led by D.S.A. member Larry Mishel and I.P.S. affiliate Jeff Faux and several D.S.A. affiliated board members. This organization has contributed at least three officials to the Obama Administration, including Obama economic adviser and "Journolista' Jared Bernstein.
*Center for American Progress - Several staff and officials are affiliated with D.S.A. and the I.P.S. Writing of the Center's relationship to the Obama Administration, former Weather Underground terrorist leader and Progressives for Obama supporter Mark Rudd said "There's a whole govt. in waiting that Podesta has at the Center for American Progress. They're mostly progressives, I'm told..."
*The Nation - Edited by I.P.S. trustee Katrina vanden Heuvel, who presides over an editorial board which includes D.S.A. members Norman Birnbaum, Barbara Ehrenreich (also an I.P.S. trustee) and Deborah Meier, plus I.P.S. affiliates Tom Hayden and Roger Wilkins.
*In These Times - Created by I.P.S. and run mainly by D.S.A. members and affiliates. Based in Chicago, I.T.T.'s board of editors includes former Weather Underground terrorists and Obama associates Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn
*Progressives for Obama - Established by D.S.A. members Barbara Ehrenreich, Tim Carpenter and Bill Fletchers, Jr. Ehrenreich and Fletcher are also I.P.S. affiliates, as were two more of P.F.O.'s six founders Tom Hayden and Danny Glover.
*Campaign for America's Future - Founded in 1996, by several dozen D.S.A. members and I.P.S. affiliates, C.A.F. is a major coordinator of the U.S. "progressive" movement. In recent years it has organized several major Take Back America and America's Future Now! conferences in Washington DC -which are attended by the cream of the U.S. progressive movement, including Barack Obama himself.
Apart from the D.S.A./I.P.S. connection, leftist institutions like the The New Republic and the New Century Foundation are well represented. There are two known connections to George Soros' Open Society Institute.
Many major newspapers are also represented, as is national public radio, CNN and a host of leading "progressive" blogs and websites and leftist media "watchdog" Media Matters.

JournoList, was not just a bunch of "liberal' journos with too much time on there hands.
It was a network of high level opinion makers, united by a "progressive" vision for America. They believed that their superior judgement and insight, obligated them to present Americans with a view of reality, that they would be too stupid and reactionary to grasp unaided.
At least a few, perhaps many, were committed Marxists who saw journalism, not as a profession, but as a revolutionary tool.
This disgraceful episode should dispel forever the "progressive" lie, that the American MainStreamMedia and its "liberal" core, can be trusted to uphold the objective standards of their profession.
New Zeal has extensive links to back up this is all up. To read the names and see the hundreds of connections, check out New Zeal here.
As stated above, this is more than just a bunch of sloppy journalists and overpaid "professors" with time on their hands. This is a group that conspired to bury damning information about Barack Obama, and conspired to make up lies about Sarah Palin, in order to influence the 2008 presidential election. And ... IT WORKED!
That should send chills down your spine.
These are the same sorts that conspire to push all of the radical leftist agenda. They are dangerous revolutionaries who should not be allowed to pose as journalists or teachers.
These radicals have destroyed the integrity of their "profession" and destroyed the trust of the American people. They have perverted their First Amendment rights completely. They have spit on both the Constitution and the American people. They should all be run out of the business.
We can never trust the so-called "mainstream media" again.
