    1,000-member secretive progressive journalist group uncovered

    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 Trackersthrough an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network.

    Not sure if this is going to be considered the right place to post this, but I think it is breaking news to uncover the corruption going on in the media these days....In true Journ O list form this is far more corrosive...The marriage between left wing, (possibly socialist/communist) professors in our University system to shape what we are told, and not told is the end of journalism as we knew it.

    No longer is it just the facts, but pure propaganda spewing from the left. It is dangerous to a free society, somethings today's progressive seems to relish.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    That's awesome, but why is it secret?

    How many are on government payroll?

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Conservatives, on the other hand, never talk to each other about strategies and talking points and whatnot.

    Of course they do, but they tend to be rather loud about it so you see them coming.

    Yeah, I'm sure all of them are wide open about their email discussions. Can you get me all of the Koch's emails?

    A Google group. Google's knock off version of a Facebook group is being reported on as a "secretive progressive journalist group."

    Is there an emoji on this board showing me rolling my eyes?

    When will you guys ever listen. You've been told repeatedly that for "real news", you must go international. The US media has been dropping the ball for a long time. And, spin it as you will, but where it really matters, the press covers for both parties.

    Al Jazeera has been the leader in that [it is] literally changing people’s minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective… In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners.
