The majority of the discussion on the Journolist, a list-serv, started by Erza Klein and consisting of 400 members, most of which involved in journalism and/or the media, regarding Sarah Palin, seemed to be just a bitching session, complaining about John McCain’s pick.

I said the majority, but once again, what the leaked Journolist emails provide everyone, is a look inside the mind of the Left, but more importantly, the minds of media talking heads on the Left.

In some cases it seems the Journolist was used as more than just a “virtual water cooler” to discuss the news, it was also used by it’s members to coordinate a specific message to publish at established mainstream media news outlets which they wrote for.

For example:

Daniel Levy of the Century Foundation noted that Obama’s “non-official campaign” would need to work hard to discredit Palin. “This seems to me like an occasion when the non-official campaign has a big role to play in defining Palin, shaping the terms of the conversation and saying things that the official [Obama] campaign shouldn’t say – very hard-hitting stuff, including some of the things that people have been noting here – scare people about having this woefully inexperienced, no foreign policy/national security/right-wing christia wing-nut a heartbeat away …… bang away at McCain’s age making this unusually significant …. I think people should be replicating some of the not-so-pleasant viral email campaigns that were used against [Obama].”

Obama’s “non-official campaign”.

Think about that for a second, members in that thread, journalists from publications such as Bloomberg News, The Politico, CNN’s TIME, The New Yorker, Nation, Mother Jones, New America Foundation, Human Rights Watch, discussing Sarah Palin and just how to approach negating her impact on Hillary Clinton supporters and on Obama’s campaign.

The Daily Caller did not release any portion of the thread that showed even one member of the 400 members denying or disagreeing that Journolist and the journalists that belonged to it, were “Obama’s “non-official campaign”.

I have not been one to suggest that Erza Klein produce the complete archives from his list-serv, but I will say that if he has even one email from that thread that shows members disagreeing with being considered Obama’s “non-official campaign”, now would be the time to produce it.
