Affirmatively Scheming Liberal Hypocrites

clipped from

As an intellectual, I would like to study how that worked. I’ll write a book about it if someone will send me the raw material I need — the complete archive of the Journolist. I need a Deep Throat.” I’ve got your man right here.

UPDATE: A journalist reader emails:

That Ann Althouse post you quoted is more right than she knows. A friend who was on the List and works at a major newspaper told me recently, and I quote verbatim: “Journolist was basically a jobs program for liberals in DC.” This person said that it was used to link up the older, more established set with the younger up-and-comers, all to better staff newspapers, magazines, and institutions with liberals. And it is worth adding that this was said by a very liberal person who was not speaking the least bit apologetically.

Seems like it might violate some institutions’ affirmative action policies, then. . . .
