So DKos is extreme right wing? Oh please, enlighten us on your observations. You seem to live in your own world of ideology and make stuff up as you go along.


Of course not. I was making a little joke.

It is a progressive/leftwing fever swamp. Generally unreadable because poorly organized but I do occasionally find a nugget there.

So where do you get your news and information, Stebben?

Blerf, I guess I didn't catch the sarcasm. I do find DKos hit or miss. Sometimes a bit much for me. Where do I get my news? As many sources as possible. I don't stick to one formula or source as I feel that starts to get stale. I've found Google News has a good link selection often from mid-sized city newspapers which can actually have good writers. It's not just the NY TImes, Tribune, or other usual suspects. I have really shifted towards print media as I've found most, if not all the cable network shows are sensationalism.

The problem with Drudge is where he links too. It's so biased and often links to sensationalized stories, much like the teevee people. I feel like he's the shock jock of internet news.

Not for much longer

For some reason I have been getting a free subscription to Newsweek, although recently they sent me an invoice for a renewal. I'm thankful I passed on that. If they are still sending me freebies until they stop printing, I'll keep the last issue. Might be worth something in the future.
