The Internet is all abuzz today over the release of several emails from now-defunct private email listserv JournoList, which many (mostly liberal) writers and bloggers used during the 2008 election. It seems that some of these writers discussed the idea of coordinating coverage of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright scandal. Journalists are mostly mocking this story. And they're primarily doing it on--where else?--Twitter.

@Ydiot Journolist was dumb. I'm now not on any email lists. Cons calling for Jlist disclosure should leak their own emails. Do you agree?less than a minute ago via TweetDeck


By the end of the day, everything can be blamed on journolist:
