I would like a wider discussion of the value of posting to less friendly web sites. If this is a viable means of communicating with a wider range of people I am all for it. Libs have been doing this for years - note Seminar callers to Rush with lib topic of the day.
My sense is this is happening with increasing effectiveness. I see it especially on Facebook where Libs are routinely slaughtered for expressing their benighted views.
With the most important presidential election in our nation’s history looming it is imperative that Truth be Told.
I would like a wider discussion of the value of posting to less friendly web sites.First of all, I personally would consider "which sites".
I would never post on DU or anything like DU.
On the spectrum of SomeWhatFriendly to AbsoluteEnemy, I would start with the SomeWhatFriendly, like Fox News, Wall Street Journal, National Review, Washington Times (not sure which of these actually have comment pages) and then consider moving on downstream to the MSM such as NY Times and LA Times (again, I don't know if comments are posted there).
But I would never go so far "down" as to get anywhere near anything like DU.
An interesting target site that actually has a lot of Americans and a lot of conservatives (as well as a lot of leftists and "independents") is the British Telegraph Online. One of its columnists is James Delingpole, one of the best AGW debunkers in the world.
