WASHINGTON, D.C. – A prominent CNN commentator, the top two political reporters for The Huffington Post, a Reuters reporter, the editor of The Nation magazine, a producer for Al Jazeera America television, a U.S. News & World Report columnist, and approximately two dozen Huffington Post contributors are among the more than 1,000 members of Gamechanger Salon.

Founded by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt, the group is a secretive digital gathering of writers, opinion leaders, activists and political hands who share information, ideas and strategy via a closed Google group.

The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network. ...Scissors-32x32.png

Say Hello To A New Secret Network of Lib Journos


You’d think in an era when JournoList, a secret online group of liberal journos, caused a big enough stir to get one of their own canned from WaPo that it might deter liberal journalists from partaking in such a thing.

But no. They’re back at the trough for more. This time around it’s more JournoList lite. It’s called “Gamechanger Salon,” comprised of about 1,000 journalists that include HuffPost‘s Amanda Terkel and Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim, The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel and folks from Planned Parenthood, NARAL and more. At the helm of the ship is Billy Wimsatt, a left-wing activist and political organizer.

This time it’s more JournoList Lite, with details being much more tame.

“It’s just a list of a bunch of liberals,” said Grim, who largely writes straight news stories. “I’m on a bunch of lists, they’re all pretty much the same, but I’m always looking for more invites. Ask your readers to invite me if they manage one!”

Ryan assures that he also belongs to conservative listservs “and this one is a bit more boring than those,” he says.Scissors-32x32.png
