Greg Sargent is a left-wing American journalist. Sargent is accused of uncritically promoting lies that serve left-wing interests. A source at Media Matters for America said Sargent "will write anything you give him. He was the go-to guy to leak stuff.”
Greg Sargent, of the Washington Post, was an identified member of JournoList - an email group of approximately 400 "progressive" and socialist journalists, academics and "new media" activists.
JournoList members reportedly coordinated their messages in favor of Barack Obama and the Democrats, and against Sarah Palin and the Republican Party. JournoList was founded in 2007 and was closed down in early 2010.
