Andrew Sullivan On Liberal Media: 'Devoid Of Any Balls Whatsoever' #3

Kathleen Geier jumps back into the discussion again:

Look at these family pix here:

And here:

It looks like the daughter *could* be pregnant — especially in the first picture.

And it seems odd that Palin would wait until her 7th month to announce her pregnancy.

None of this is evidence of anything, of course — but I do relish the idea that if this were true and discovered, Palin would take the crown from Eagleton as the most disastrous veep choice ever.

I am really hoping Palin will self-immolate and bring down the ticket with her. Because if she proves to be a popular choice who doesn’t screw up too badly, she could be really, really dangerous in the years to come.

Finally, founder Erza Klein, 10 hours after the gossip, rumor session between Journolist journalist began, speaks up:

Aug 30, 2008, 10:15am

Seriously, folks? Best case scenario, what’s your outcome here: Her daughter, hounded by the tabloids, breaks down that it was her child, and her mother heroically took on the burden and welcomed the disabled boy as one of her own? Palin’s relationship with her children — however they may have come to her — strikes me as pretty far out of bounds. By all accounts she’s a wonderful mother, and devoted to her fifth son. Leave this be.

Over 80 more emails to that thread, leading into the next day, showing that Klein was once again basically ignored. Some showing distaste for the story but the majority discussing rumors and the validity of claims that had no basis in fact and no evidence to back them up.

So when Andrew Sullivan finds vindication in the fact that he was not the only one obsessive about the unfounded Trig rumors, he has a point.

Sully concludes:

All great points. Especially the latter. But nothing was to be aired in public, for fear of backlash from the right.

This is your liberal media, ladies and gentlemen: totally partisan, interested in the truth only if it advances their agenda, and devoid of any balls whatsoever. And people wonder how this farce of a candidate now controls one major political party and could well be our next president. One reason is that we do not have a functioning adversarial media uncorrupted by partisan loyalty and tactics.

What is notable however is that this Daily Caller addition to the previous pieces revealing leaked excerpts from Journolist, provides more names to add to the lists others have already compiled on known Journolist members.

When the Daily Caller concludes their piecemeal theme stories revealing discussions on specific topics, perhaps since they seem to have a large part of the archived emails, if not all of them, they should go through them individually and compile a comprehensive list which would brings us closer to knowing more of the approximate 400 members.

That is a list I know many are waiting to see........... Come on Tucker, do a girl a favor.
