JournoLies

via Instapundit, Mickey Kaus:
"Journolist was a terrible idea from the start, not so much because it enabled the promotion of “lock-steppedness” and a progressive party line across media organizations (though Salam more or less concedes that it did), or because it fostered an “us vs. them” mentality (which it also obviously did). It was a bad idea, mainly because it took a process that could have been public, democratic and transparent and gratuitously made it private, stratified and opaque."


It seems to me that the goal of the Journolist was to influence hearts and minds while concealing motives. It was a good idea for them and it worked.
