1,000-Member Secretive Progressive
Journalist Group Uncovered

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Breitbart News

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/6/2014 2:13:39 PM

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A prominent CNN commentator, the top two political reporters for The Huffington Post, a Reuters reporter, the editor of The Nation magazine, a producer for Al Jazeera America television, a U.S. News & World Report columnist, and approximately two dozen Huffington Post contributors are among the more than 1,000 members of Gamechanger Salon. Founded by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt, the group is a secretive digital gathering of writers, opinion leaders, activists and political hands who share information, ideas and strategy via a closed Google group. The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records

Why don´t they quit playing games and just call those "progressives" what they are, Communists. This is certainly not surprising but it is disturbing that they feel the need to be so secretive.

This site is not usually posted here but staff felt info was worth showing.

Was this ever a surprise? Any time the topic of media bias is brought up, the claims get shouted down from near and far.

Now we know how.

Just 1,000?

Safe bet that these HopenGameChanger members average far higher incomes than non-members and that they are guests on the MSM news shows far more than non-members. And, that the books they write receive far more coverage than non-members, with almost always favorable reviews. Finally, this secret group of Obama cheerleaders surely have more paid speaking assignments, especially on college campuses.

No, it´s not a surprise, after all, there is JournoList.

Now, if the TEA partiers --and all those who yearn to save the Republic-- could learn from this, and fight smart, strategically, instead of getting involved in petty squabbles, and trying to oust politicians for whom they do not have a viable challenger, then we´d see some changes begin.

The essential, absolutely essential work to be done is educating the public. There are millions of lofos for a reason: nobody tries to inform and enlighten... EXCEPT the Left.

The Left owns the media, owns entertainment, owns "education", owns "news" (loosely used term).

It´s much harder to educate and enlighten than to propagandize and titillate and rouse and play on emotions.

They do the same thing via their closed Google group that organized public action groups (like "Tea Party" groups) do, except that instead of raising money to support candidates they provide incalculable support with their mouths, pens and keyboards.

So they are immune from IRS and FEC scrutiny. How do you put a value on innumerable repetitions of Demon-crat talking points by partisan bigots claiming to be "journalists?" And they complain about PACs. They are worse, because they labor in the shadows perpetuating this fraud.

It seems like the only qualification to get Press Credentials is a pulse.

Titillating title, but small potatoes. When you consider the big-picture, national-scale editorial decisions made by progressives in media (contrast coverage of the Christie and Cuomo scandals, for example), this 1,000 member bunch sounds like a mere a sub-group, a social sorority of second-tier progressives, a junior league of left-learned newsies united by a love for macrame.

IMHO, these aren´t the people calling shots behind the curtain. These are just the people who get the call to steam and press the curtains every couple of months.

Now if Republicans were smart and we know they are not, they would make this a huge issue. ID everybody in the group and which publications they work for, every time they attack Conservatives they should shout loud that the Journalist making the attack is part of this secret group and should be considered suspect.

It came out of nowhere, had never been used before and has not been used since. Yet one week in 2000, EVERY news station had reporters using the word.

A secretive journalist group is EXACTLY how this s*hit happens.

Their messages against the Republic are soaked up by the last minute, uninformed voters.
They write in lockstep with every word generated by the DNC spin machine.
Would that conservatives could do this but we allow for a difference of opinions.
Freedom of the Press is one thing; collusion, quite another.

With the expose, and most people know the majority of journalist are communist, I wonder two things.
1. How many people will address the reporters as Comrade or as Communist publically?
2. How many people will now boycott all publications/writers deemed to be Communist?

A few million? Few thousand? Few hundred? Probably me and a third of the Ldotters. Tick tick tick tick.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

"The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

First lady Michelle Obama believes that Democrats running for Congress eagerly desire her presence on the campaign trail during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections. However, she has avoided helping some Senate Democrats because she’s mad at them for failing to show adequate support for her deeply unpopular attempt to change people’s diets. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The New York Times has reported it. (Snip) Michelle Obama was also especially furious after nearly a dozen Democrats from states where potatoes are a commercial crop joined Republican lawmakers in opposing a decision by the Obama
