Who cares...And why do you seem to equate PuffPo to Drudge?

Let the wine age before making any comparisons...I'll stick with one that has always been suitable to my political palate...

Why do you list FreeRepublic under “social networks”?

I think it should be stand alone at the top your site. If you do that I will hit your site everyday.

I'd bite if you can proove that you have the same access to news as Matt Drudge.

The first time you "scoop" Drudge on an important developement is the day I'll set my home page to the MartinezReport...

Looks okay to me. I haven’t looked for news at Drudge for years, I usually find all I need here at FR.

Glenn Beck is quietly becoming something of a juggernaut.

Have been listening to his radio show most mornings. He’s becoming quite formidable.

By building a complete news delivery capability outside the MSM, Beck has managed to flank the entire liberal media machine.

He seems to have become almost the first one, in that market. (Alex Jones was actually there delivering content in that same space first, but without Beck’s cred.)

Not a bad place to be, actually. More or less, Beck right now, is where Rush Limbaugh was, 20 years ago.

Hugh opportunity.

Then, of course, a lot of Drudge articles are posted here on FR. (but were on Drudge first) Not knocking FR, I’m a big fan and would rather read them here in good company than on the Drudge site.

Not too shabby, Mr. Martinez.

Even “feels” like Drudge, in the way a Hyundai feels like a Honda. Nice job.

I like The Blaze and check it multiple times daily. Billy Hallowell is a great writer. Superb ‘Faith’ section on there. Their top story slideshows tend to be less news-y, more shock though (Farrakhan, Van Jones, etc.) I feature stories like that on my site, don’t get me wrong, but it’s extremely rare for me to put that as one of the top top stories.

The Puffington Huffington Compost is considered by some libs to be their ‘Drudge Report’. I just listed it since those are the two giant aggregators.

You need to get it tested. I get a question mark from Norton. They haven’t tested your site yet.
I’ll go check it out as soon as Norton’s rated it.

I’d prefer you took FR out of the Social Network column as putting FR in the same category as Facebook is an insult to FR.

The colors are terrible.

It is so much easier to read black and white. RED and BLUE are the worst color choices.

TO MUCH ALL CAPS. A Sans Serif font is not good for reading.

It looks like a Powerpoint slide.

Let me know when you change things.

There are many references, one of my favorites is Designing the User Interface by Ben Shneiderman.

BTW I am a User Interface expert. You can contact me off line if you would like a professional opinion and improvements. I could with you coder to build a better User Interface.

I suspect so....maybe he don’t report everything..I have heard that he is kind of a RINO..I don’t get all my news from Drudge...right here is the place for that, but my long time home page is Drudge...I like the headline.

Suggestion: change the links so they open in a new browser page.

Google News did this recently and it certainly simplifies things.

Well, I like it.

I think you’d be well served to listen to Crazy Jim and upchuck, a few minor tweaks could help.

I’ve bookmarked your page and look forward to frequently checking it.

I don’t think that he did, he hadn’t by 9am the next day, and I didn’t see it later in the day.

Between that and “Bloody Thursday” and more, Drudge has declared war against the tea party and conservatism.

Why is this [BLOGS, SITES, AND COLUMNS] not alphabetical ?

I'll give ya some exploratory hits, but warily, as I'm already sensing some agenda or other in play re your listing scheme for the above.

In the meantime, might wanna tread carefully around here, lest you win a new hat   ;-)

Looks good - and hopefully without the Romney shilling.

I’m never setting electron on the Drudge Report again, after seeing him in action this primary season.
