Ann Althouse Wants her Own Deep Throat

detect.gif Blogger and University of Wisconsin law prof Ann Althouse is seeking raw Journolist material for a book, her own “deep throat” if you will.

Althouse writes on her blog on Sunday:

Remember the liberal meme that George Bush was “incurious”? But aren’t these liberal journalists incurious? They had this email list that was designed – apparently – to figure out how to structure the various news stories to serve the interests of their party. The Journolist was a self-herding device. They wanted to be good cogs in a machine that would generate power for the Democratic Party, didn’t they? For career and social rewards? That’s my hypothesis. As an intellectual, I would like to study how that worked. I’ll write a book about it if someone will send me the raw material I need – the complete archive of the Journolist. I need a Deep Throat. I promise not to regard you as disgusting.

Of course, she’s not offering the $100,000 that Breitbart is (see this post). But we wish her luck.
