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.

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.

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.

The investigation into the controversial shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb has been completed, the St. Louis County prosecutor´s office said Wednesday.

Authorities could have charged Wilson themselves by filing a criminal complaint, but St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch instead opted to present the case to a grand jury to decide whether to indict the officer.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

Alton Nolen´s mother and sister posted a video on Facebook where they apologized to the families of victims in Nolen´s alleged attack last Thursday in Moore, Oklahoma. The two women insisted that Nolen was acting outside of his character because he believed in God and was not a violent person. Nolen, whose Facebook page indicates that he recently converted to Islam, is accused of attacking co-workers Colleen Hufford and Traci Johnson after he was reportedly fired for "personnel issues" from a Vaughan Foods factory. He reportedly beheaded Hufford, 54, and stabbed Johnson, 43, multiple times before being shot by reserve police officer
