Hey, the Non-Official Campaign for Obama Needs its Swag


Back in the 1920s, the iconoclastic H.L. Mencken wrote that “It is the prime function of a really first-rate newspaper to serve as a sort of permanent opposition in politics.”

In 2008, the JournoList dubbed themselves Obama's "non-official campaign."

Today, "Reporters Using ‘Fake Names’ to Buy Obama Campaign Merchandise at the DNC."

As Mattheew Sheffield writes at Newsbusters, "Who knew that just a few days after our colleagues at MRCTV attracted a mob at the DNC passing out t-shirts bearing the phrase 'Journalists for Obama' that we'd see a report of journalists actually trying to do the very same thing?"
