So the MSM (Main Stream Media) is in trouble? When poll after poll shows that a majority of Americans are conservative in their thinking and lifestyle, why do we think a liberal press is going to continue to flourish?
All you had to do was watch the President’s press conference last week, touting his first “100 Days” and listen to the puff-ball questions lobbed at the President. Then go read Monica Crowley’s article, “Puffball Nation” where she writes, “As the lamestream media continues to swoon Scarlett O’Hara-like over this president, we now know two things for sure…they are really cheap dates. Easy too.”
I am often asked, “Where DO you find good news sources?” It sure isn’t in the MSM. Yes, I do regularly read two local newspapers, a regional and a small-town local. I do find interesting things in them, like this morning’s article by Eugene Robinson as he, again, tears up the GOP. It is bloodsport to him, and he’s great at it. If he would only listen, he might hear some terrific ideas, but those ideas have been completely torn apart since day one of President George Bush’s term. Day one! They are not interested in what we have to say from the conservative side, whether GOP or those wierd ducks, conservative Dem’s (that’s an oxymoron, folks!).
So where do I find authentic, truthful news from a conservative viewpoint (your viewpoint DOES matter). If you will look at the column to the right, I am now listing basic news sources that I recommend (there are more, but we’ll start here). On these sites you will also find lists of columnists and their sites, where you can selectively read your favorite commentator. Drudge was the first to list these writers, and has been a favorite site for many years.
If your favorite conservative news hotspot isn’t listed, please do me a favor & comment back with where you find good, truthful news. If I find it a worthwhile site, I’ll add it to the list.
Be careful, though. It is beyond belief…but not everything written today is truthful, nor well researched. The rumors get going, and “conservatives” are prone to pass on the worst of the “stuff.” I know…it sounds good, and you wish like crazy that it is true…but please, check it out (see my previous blog) and make sure it is valid and verifiable.
There’s a lot going on out there. David, Ben, Michelle,Jack, Ted and more have some great articles to read. What’s this about “Obama’s Whack-a-Mole Politics?” Michael writes: “…the sheer volume and frequency of gaffes, cons, misguided solutions, outrageous abuses of executive power, and repeated episodes of bad judgment, make it difficult for a rational individual to come to grips with any specific untoward development before they are assailed by yet another one.”
Yes, the conservative press is out there, alive and well…just ignored by the MSM and this administration (look what they did with the million or so people who participated in the “Tea Parties”…”tea parties”, what’s that they say…). But you don’t have to ignore them. Go read, educate and equip yourself for today’s world. You’ll be much better for it. I think you will feel better, too. You will actually find “hope” out there…but that’s a subject for another day.
Time for me to quit, and go back to reading…
