I really don’t want to look like I am piling on. Kicking someone when they are down. (*Really.*)
I’ll give her a pass on Romanesko. (It’s a pretty inside-baseball site for the driveby crowd.) Political Wire is a DC establishment political news website. It covers politics from a DC perspective, and kisses the Establishment buttocks pretty sloppily. (They looooooove them some Hillary over there.)
The last one — the Cheezburger one — is a site full of “funny animal pics.” (Not a lot of intellectual heft, there.)
Miss Laura loses me with Wonkette. THAT is one nasty-tempered, far-left, hardcore feminist site. Here is a smattering of their lead stories today:
Wow. THIS is a go-to, must-read site for WRAL’s top political “reporter”? Hey, I read leftist stuff, too. That’s not a crime. But I am not holding myself out there as some font of even-handed neutrality. (*I despite statists. Not a fan of government, at all. THERE. I said it. SO, liberating.*)
So, Chris Fitzsimon is on the payroll for “commentary,” and Miss Laura is there for straight-up “reportin’.” And they wonder why people are fleeing them and seeking out sites like THIS ONE on the Internet.
