Of the known Journolist members, it's a pretty pasty white crowd. I would have to go to a tea party to see a greater percentage of ethnic diversity than the first 100 members of the Journolist.
Also, it's members have more interrelations between political and advocacy groups than the cast of characters in your average daytime soap opera. It's downright incestuous.
So for an exit question, besides being like minded thinkers-- for lack of a better term-- and pretty much all if not most of them knew most of the Journolist inner circle-- at the very least, had access to it-- what was the real reason behind the Journolist if it wasn't for message coordination?
Besides the need to congratulate themselves while sipping on a juicebox?
