Anyone following the Jeff Gannon story?

Pretty interesting stuff. I have a hard time believing that this guy actually ran/owned gay porn sites. Surely he wouldn't be that stupid.

Phil Kloster moderates a site that has Denver Chief's avatar on it. Is that like the same thing?

Who is Jeff Gannon and why is it surprising he ran a gay porn site. Doesn't everyone?

Let's just say it's not surprising to find the words "Gannon" and "gay porn" in the same sentence.

apparently, he's a bogus reporter for a bogus news agency that has been allowed into White House press conferences for the purpose of asking softball/partisan questions of the President and Press Secretary, and he just also happens to own several gay porn websites...here's a little bit of the story that is coming to light:

blogity blog blog

"Remember "Jeff Gannon," the White House reporter who lobs softballs at Scottie McClellan when the other mean reporters won't let up with the real questions?

The "Jeff Gannon" who accused his colleagues of "working off the talking points provided by the Democrats" and then was found to have copied info directly from GOP documents and used it in his "news report"?

This would be the same "Jeff Gannon" who was subpoenaed in connection with the Plame investigation because he somehow obtained a copy of a purported State Dept. document which said that Ms. Plame had a hand in arranging the assignment to Niger for her husband (an allegation -- and document -- denied by the CIA).

Yes, we're talking about "Jeff Gannon, Washington Bureau Chief, Talon News" -- Talon News being the rinkydink wingnut "news service" chaired by the same guy who runs GOP USA (the wingnut site that is less upscale than Renew American, but slightly more professional than BushCountryUSA, and apparently run by various members of the Texas GOP).

Anyway, ever since it was revealed that "Jeff Gannon" is a pseudonym (even though he apparently gets daily White House passes issued in that name), bloggers have been trying to ascertain his real identity. Susan G. at Daily Kos (with the assistance of her readers) has been very energetic and organized in this endeavor, and has uncovered a great deal of interesting and suggestive info about "Jeff" and his associates.

So, just who is Jeff? Well, his Talon News bio has been delated, but it formerly indicated that he was a obtained a B.S. degree in Education from the Pennsylvania State University System, and attended a two-day right-wing school of journalism ("the Leadership Institute Broadcast School of Journalism"). Oh, and he "lives on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC."

His posts at his site "ConservativeGuy.com" also seem to have disappeared, but Susan and her readers found an archived copy of his "Who is Conservative Guy?" bio -- and it seems to indicate that "Jeff" can't hold a job:

I've been a preppie, a yuppie, blue-collar, green-collar and white-collar. I've served in the military, graduated from college, taught in the public school system, was a union truck driver, a management consultant, a fitness instructor and an entrepreneur. I'm a two-holiday Christian and I usually vote Republican because they most often support conservative positions

His gun of choice is a Beretta 9mm, and he drives a Nissan Pathfinder.

Anyway, "Jeff" has noted the efforts to identify him, and seems delighted with the attention. He recently posted the following at JeffGanon.com:

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT

"The hard-core Lefties are conducting an exhaustive search for me in cyberspace, which has produced an entertaining mosaic of conspiracy theories. I appreciate all the attention, but I can do without the threats on my person, property and family.

[...]

For those out there that still have questions about me and don't think I should be able to be a journalist, here's what you need to know:

I'm everything people on the Left seem to despise. I'm a man who is white, politically conservative, a gun-owner, an SUV driver and I've voted for Republicans. I'm pro-American, pro-military, pro-democracy, pro-capitalism, pro-free speech, anti-tax and anti-big government. Most importantly, I'm a Christian. Not only by birth, but by rebirth through the blood of Jesus Christ. [But apparently only at Christmas and Easter, if you go by his ConservativeGuy post.]

I've never been paid by a politician or given money to a politician. I've never worked on a campaign or worked for an elected official. I've never run for office or been appointed to any government position at any level. Few, if any of my colleagues can make the same claim."

And few, if any, of his colleagues in the White House press corps appear to have so few qualifications for the job.

Anyway, "Jeff" seems to be your basic loser who has tried a lot of dead-end jobs and get-rich quick schemes, and then finally, despite any previous experience in journalism (or even any experience or interest in politics or government) got some wingnut group with possible ties to the GOP to pay him a salary -- and now he's a White House Reporter. So, he's everything that Judson Cox hopes to be in 20 years (although Judson has worked on local campaigns, so is probably overqualified to be Jeff).

And yet, despite that lack of background, and the fact that Talon News isn't really a news organization, somehow the White House lets Jeff into the press conferences ever day, and regularly takes his questions. ...."


his real name is probably:

"Sources allege that Jeff Gannon's real name is James D. "JD" Guckert, though I have not been able to confirm this.

But this would make perfect sense, because when the folks at Kos did some digging into the background of Jeff's various sites, they found that they were all registered to "Bedrock Corp" of Wilmington, DE, and the address provided was a Mailbox, Inc location. However, poster dqueue did some further Googling and found another address for Bedrock Corp. of Wilmington -- this address was a single-family home, and it was associated with a "Jim Guckert" who was listed on a business directory page for court reporting and secretarial services in Wilmington. (I found another listing for Bedrock Corp, this one describing it as a "Management Consultant business" -- so, maybe Jim provides both secretarial services AND management consulting.)"
-----------------


none of this should surprise anyone...we already know the White House buys journalists....creating fake ones is just the next logical step...

The horror of it all... a conservative news reporter, who might be gay. Wow, and the libbies, at least the tolerant ones are all up in arms about it.

Great work, guys!

Ok, if that wasnt the point, what is the point pray tell...Ive read nothing earth shattering or shocking at this point other than the fact that he's a conservative.

I know that whole 9:1 Lib/conservative ratio in the press corps hangs in the balance, here, so tell me what Im missing.

people are starting to figure it out...:

real fake news
Washington, DC - Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (NY-28)...

"Dear Mr. President:



In light of the mounting evidence that your Administration has, on several occasions, paid members of the media to advocate in favor of Administration policies, I feel compelled to ask you to address a matter brought to my attention by the Niagara Falls Reporter (article attached), a local newspaper in my district, regarding James "JD" Guckert (AKA Jeff Gannon) of Talon News.

According to several credible reports, "Mr. Gannon" has been repeatedly credentialed as a member of the White House press corps by your office and has been regularly called upon in White House press briefings by your Press Secretary Scott McClellan, despite the fact evidence shows that "Mr. Gannon" is a Republican political operative, uses a false name, has phony or questionable journalistic credentials, is known for plagiarizing much of the "news" he reports, and according to several web reports, may have ties to the promotion of the prostitution of military personnel...."

I've been following the story through mediamatters.org. I don't know about any of the latest scandals but I know that Gannon is alleged to be sort of a go to guy in the White house press corps that supposedly asks softball questions.

God, I miss all the good stuff.

(wish I had more time to spend on the planet)

Just out of curiousity, does this pattern bother ANY Republicans or conservatives or Bush Administration supporters at all?

Serious question.

-- Bush Gov't creating propaganda pieces made to look like (and shown as) actual during actual local news programs.
-- Bush Gov't paying media pundits to promote administration policies.
-- Bush Gov't allowing a bogus reporter using a fake name to become one of the main members of WH press corp.

Does this bother you guys even a little? It's ok to say "yes", the election is over.
