The spin team

Have you ever wondered how, on some given story, reporters so often gravitate to the same unlikely spin?  A partial answer was given when the Journolist internet mailing list was uncovered.   Emails from that list exposed how journalists hashed out coordinated responses on issues such as how to attack a popular Alaska Governor. 

The Vail Spot has published a very interesting list of confirmed participants in the Journolist.  Included are journalists from Newsweek, Time, Politico, The Atlantic, Economist, The New Republic, Washington Post, New York Observer, The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, Human Rights Watch, and Media Matters, among many others.
