This is, once again, an American story as all the really important and interesting ones are. After all, David Cameron not knowing what happened in 1940 having had the best education money can buy in this country is not precisely a story. But the story of JournoList, its demise and how its members actually planned to destroy conservative commentators, submerged stories that could embarrass Barack Obama during the electoral campaign and plotted how to ensure that he would be voted in no matter what it took is becoming ever more fascinating. At some point I shall have to write more about it, especially as there were some Grauniad journos involved, as a reader of this blog pointed out to me.
In the meantime, here is a measured summary by Fred Barnes Executive Editor of the Weekly Standard and a commentator on Fox News Channel, which, according to some on the Journolist, ought to be shut down by the Feds. James Taranto quotes some of the e-mails with his usual tart comments.
