And then of course there's the influence of $ in journalism.
GE's money supports Obama. Journolist members support Obama through their propaganda. Obama wins. GE stands to make big $ through environmental laws that Obama supports. Journolist members and others appear regularly on GE-owned media outlets to support Obama initiatives. GE $ = speech in support of GE (without full disclosure).

Exactly! At least Roger Simon and Chuck Todd are slamming JournoList:

I wondering if they are plotting to call them "racists" at the new CabaList?

I can't believe Mr Klein hasn't been fired yet. Or at least have the dignity to resign.

Why did Democrats plan to enact a law which forces disclosure of Corporate expenditures on political speech, but specifically omits obligations by Unions to disclose?

Never mind. I know why.

PS: GE has just been found gulty of corrupt participation in UN's Oil for food program with Iraq and Saddam Hussein.

If it's free speech, why does it cost so much?

The comment section here on Ezra's blog has really gone downhill since news broke about Journolist. I hope the wingnuts will go back to some right wing blog where they're the brightest bulbs in the chandelier instead of hanging around where they're more like an intermittently shorting neon tube.
