HERE IS THE UPDATE:
As noted in my previous post, the The Daily Caller had an additional information for today Members of the ListServ talked about censorship of Fox News. The idea of censorship being acceptable when it comes to Fox News (or any news organization (or, thinking ahead, bloggers)) is a bit disturbing.
The Instapundit linked to it with this comment:
Stalinist by instinct, aren’t they?Also, for me it calls to mind SCOTUS Nominee, but then Solicitor General Elena Kegan's comments about allowing banning of books or censoring—she said it is OK, since it won't be enforced by the FEC. The problem is, once on the books there is someone, some day, who will bring it to the fore. Just look at that old and forgotten law on the Massachusetts books used to ban same-sex couples from out-of-state from being married in the Commonwealth.
For a perhaps traditionally more balanced view we can turn to the Christian Science Monitor which has this to say on this issue. Hat tip to Instapundit for this link.
My take so far. The Journolist members were talking to themselves and in the end it just confirms a somewhat wide-spread belief that Journalism is returning to its roots in the 19th Century. It is becoming more overtly partisan. The Republic will survive.
