1) How many Washington Post staffers were part of JournoList and, if there are any currently unnamed, who are they?

2) Will the Post be transparent and either release or order its staffers to release their contributions to the list?

3) Will the Post release the names and affiliations of all those on the list or have its staffers do so?

4) Did the Post know about JournoList when Klein was hired and that it was a “center to left” group? If yes, what does that say about the Post’s claims of neutrality?

5) Did actions on JournoList violate the Post’s ethical guidelines?

6) Has the Post revised or added any ethical guidelines as a result of this scandal?

7) Will the Post permit staffers to belong to or operate such lists in the future?

8) Does the Post often embrace “off the record” e-mail conversations with hundreds of people at a time?

9) Was Klein’s supervisor(s) on the list and were they monitoring what went on?

10) Has the Post examined the possibility that JournoList impacted Post news coverage?

11) How much did the Post look into JournoList before hiring Klein?

12) Were Klein and the other Post members of the list using it and posting to it on company time? If not, when were they doing so?

13) Did Klein and the other Post members write to the list using company equipment and offices?

14) Was Klein aware that some were using the list to boost the Obama campaign, such as adviser Jared Bernstein?

15) Did Klein attempt to enforce a rule against campaigning and, if so, how?

16) Did Klein post written guidelines for all members of the list? If so, what were those guidelines?

17) Klein had said on The American Prospect on March 17, 2009: “There are no government or campaign employees on the list.” That has been proven false. How did he try to monitor this issue? Were there other members of the Obama campaign and administration on the list?

18) Did Klein ban anyone from the list?

19) Has Klein or any other Post staffer (other than Dave Weigel) offered to resign because of their contributions to the list?

20) When Klein shut down the list, did he delete the list? If not, will the Post order him to release it so that readers may decide for themselves?

Getting a radical un-American Marxist elected to the Presidency requires simply a concerted effort by the media to lie about his radical committment to the principle of redistribution of wealth, and instead attack capitalism at every turn....

1) Are you a secret or open government employee plant for the Obama Campaign at the Washington Post?

2) If you aren't then why aren't you?

3) Do you subscribe to the secret government monitoring of the internet use established by the George W. Bush presidency?

4) How many secret conspiracies do you participate in (stomp the floor with your foot for each one, we're listening)

5) Why can't you be a real journalist like Tucker Carlson and 'contribute' to Fox News?

6) Secret, secret, secret, secret, spam, spam, spam, spam, spammity spam, oh spammity spam!

5) What about Mary Lou?

I think that troll could have summed up what he REALLY wants to know in one question:

1. Ezra, where are you hiding Obama's birth certificate?

Yes, it is a pain when those "f**king NASCAR retards" pipe up isn't it? So annoying to the sophisticated elite.
