MARKOS MOULITSAS, FOUNDER AND PUBLISHER OF DAILYKOS.COM,
TO BECOME NEWSWEEK CONTRIBUTOR FOR 2008 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
New York — Markos Moulitsas, the founder and publisher of dailykos.com, will become a Newsweek contributor for the 2008 presidential campaign, offering occasional opinion pieces to the pages of the magazine and to Newsweek.com.
AMERICA – wake up!
The Daily Kos is now the source of investigative journalism for what used to be the mainstream media. Markos Moulitsas, owner of dailykos.com, is employed by Newsweek as their contributor for the 2008 Presidential Campaign, and Newsweek in turn is owned by the Washington Post. Many Democrat Senators, Congressmen and other politicos write there. Elizabeth Edwards, wife of John Edwards, published her diary there. Both Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama attend Daily Kos conventions whenever they are held. Barack Obama joined The Daily Kos as a “Diarist” back in 2005.
The Daily Kos is the Internet Blog Mouthpiece of the Democrat Party. It is the most popular blog on the entire Internet. Although Barack Obama declaims the slandering of the families of Republicans by the media, everyone understands that is but a “wink, wink” aimed at the clueless and innocent Democrats, because the really vile and dirty work continues to be executed by and for Democrats at “The Daily Kos.”
Consider the investigative journalism of Daily Kos contributor “ArcXIX.” We do not know the real name of the journalist because his identity is protected by The Daily Kos. Investigative journalist “ArcXIX” published stories about an innocent child without one shred of sourcing and without protecting the name and identity of the minor. ArcXIX’s “investigative journalism” was picked up by Andrew Sullivan of “The Daily Dish,” and within twenty-four hours was published in the “respectable” media, who used “The Daily Kos” for their sourcing. Afterall, “The Daily Kos” owner, Moulitsas, is vouched for by Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham and is employed by the MSM’s “Newsweek,” which is owned by WAPO, so it must be true.
The story by ArcXIX was nothing more than Internet stalking of a child. It was the horrific crime of “child abuse,” with publication of her pictures and detailed discussions by adult voyeurs of the anatomy of her teenage body. Yet no one cares, as the child targeted is considered fair game, for, as the daughter of conservative politician Sarah Palin, she is wholly without rights and legal protections.
This is NOT FREE SPEECH! To deliberately and scurrilously create slander to harm a child is child abuse and should NOT be sanctioned nor permitted by society. If we lived in a just world, these “so-called” journalists would be thrown in prison, for they are no better than the slimiest incarcerated “child abuser” that all of society condemns. If we lived in a just world that cared about protecting children, politicians, Jon Meacham, Newsweek magazine, NPR and Barack Obama would not be feting the likes of “The Daily Kos.”
