The Press

And besides, with $100,000 you could probably buy Newsweek


Ann Althouse (June 27th):

As an intellectual, I would like to study how that worked. Ill write a book about it if someone will send me the raw material I need — the complete archive of the Journolist.  I need a Deep Throat.  I promise not to regard you as disgusting.

Breitbart raises (on June 29th):
...In the interests of journalistic transparency, and to offer the American public a unique insight in the workings of the Democrat-Media Complex, I’m offering $100,000 for the full “JournoList” archive, source fully protected.  Now there’s an offer somebody can’t refuse.
(Althouse reacts.)

Reynolds ratchets up the pressure (today):
(1) If, as Jonathan Chait says, there’s nothing there, why not relieve Breitbart of his bucks?

(2) If you’re worried about your own stuff being released, you don’t really safeguard it by not selling out to Breitbart — you just ensure that if one of the 400 other members does, you won’t get the $100K.

(3) Here’s your chance to be Deep Throat — and maybe to settle some scores along the way . . . .

Iowahawk says, “I’ll take a cashier’s check.”
