All I Want for Christmas Is a Really Good Hack List

  1. a writer or journalist producing dull, unoriginal work.
"a hack scriptwriter"
synonyms: journalist, reporter, newspaperman, newspaperwoman, writer.
No one had done more lately than Alex Pareene to wake us up to both the joys and dangers of the hack journalist class centered around our nation's capital.

Here's a link to Salon's hack-list page. At the top is Pareene's Presidential Hack List. It's frightening to realize who Barack Obama reads. Second is a link to this year's Hack List, topped by Politico's Mike Allen. The rest are mostly links to hack lists past.

Read them and weep.
