Shocking stories continue to come out about "JournoList" - an Internet website, closed to outsiders, where liberal journalists could meet, decide which stories to bury (like the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's anti-American diatribes) and, better still, which conservatives they'd like to bury.
Sarah Spitz, a producer for NPR, opined on the site that she'd like to be present to see Rush Limbaugh dying of a heart attack...and that rather than call for help, she would "laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out." She continues "I never knew I had this much hate in me - but he deserves it."
Ms. Spitz's biographical information has been pulled from NPR's affiliate website, but the organization - which employs a "Chief Ethics Officer" - hasn't commented further on the ethics of publicly fantasizing about agonizing deaths for political opponents.
Other JournoList revelations include the fact that many alleged journalists wanted the government to take Fox News off the air...presumably because audiences were (and are) flocking to Fox News in hopes of hearing actual news.
All of it is sad, but none of it strikes us as surprising.
Because, unlike Sarah Spitz, we did know they have this much hate in them.
