    Gotta love when supposedly private conversations become public.

    Journalists or even Journolists should never bitch about private things becoming public. Never.

    Isn't that the message board where smug self-important beltway reporters worked to develop the common wisdom of the day? Big loss.

    As with ACORN, it will re-emerge soon enough with a new name and slightly lower profile.

    En masse, the comments are merely among the best online reading, ever.

    I never heard of the fucking place.

    Perhaps the worst way to go ever.

    Interview with Dave Weigel (who's leaked emails caused Journolist to be shut down):


    And, sportsguydave's favorite media personality offers $100,000 to anyone who will leak him the entire Journolist archive:

    You have to be a real scumbag to sell that to Breitbart, a journalistic leech who celebrates the demise of traditional media while using it to build his "empire."

    So, do you think someone will do it?

    $100,000 is a lot of money. I'll bet it's a whole lot of money to some of the people on the list.

    And there's the whole, "someone else will do it if I don't" argument.

    Now, I'm not sure how it worked. Would any long term member who saved his emails have an entire archive to sell?

    I thought that part of the reason that it was shut down was so that it wouldn't be able to be searched through.

    Although I suppose that whoever leaked the info to the Daily Caller has the whole archive because they clearly searched though it to find Weigel's posts to it.
