Crosshairs,

One of our fellow freepers recommended this site earlier. I have checked it out and it looks good but the formatting leaves much to be desired.

How hard would it be for FR to create a page like Drudge’s? It’s basically a bunch of links and a few photos, assorted by category (we’d need a rogue’s gallery for the MSM) and updated daily. In fact FR is always quicker to report news than Drudge; a little “bulletin” section like Drudge’s siren would never lack attention.

Somebody here (can't remember who now) put this site up last week.

Better than Drudge was before he started kizzin' Romney's azz.

It's impossible to deny that Drudge has taken an incredible Pro Romney bent, but it's still worth reading just to get the take from that faction.

Lots of us read NTY (when it was free) WaPo, LA Times, Chosun Ilbo, J Times, Hindustan Times (unfortunately a little Bollywood heavy), etc.

I don't agree with a lot of their slants, but if the story is worthwhile, you can always dig up other sources.

Listening to a wide variety of viewpoints and then drawing a conclusion based on facts and values is a key part of being a Conservative.

After the garbage Drudge has been posting, I would think the Enquirer would do a much better job. I have recently even found myself watching liberal channels I have not watched since the 90’s just to get some inside information Fox is not willing to give.

Just my humble opinion, but I am not done with Drudge yet. He has done too much good in countering the MSM over the years.

He did dump on Newt, but did not publish it, only linked to it and showcased it. All this stuff was going to come anyway, in a steady stream or drip-drip-drip.

Thanks to Drudge, a huge stockpile of ammo against Newt was exploded all on the same day. And I dearly hope he wins Florida, my former home.

Somebody else asked the same question last week. The answer is still the same. You’re on it!

It may be because of the weekend, but Drudge’s numbers dropped from 30 million as of the 28th, to...21.7 million as of the 30th. (...and you know, some of those numbers were Freepers checking his numbers.)

:-)

Well you may try reading this thread that’s doing the same as you are.

Good Conservative Source for News to replace Drudge? (Vanity)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Twitter. No other destination has the breadth of news/information, including and especially breaking, than it does.

Alas, it has no "siren," but you learn to recognize when something's urgent or important all by yourself.

I no longer even think about Drudge--no bookmark to his site. I'm not mad. I just don't care. The world of information has changed and he has not.

I think The Blaze is the best. Beautiful, professional-looking conservative news site, lots of pics and videos, and pretty good reader feedback if you can ignore the trolls. And Before Its News is good too, but they lean more toward conspiracy news and survivalism. And there’s so much content there that it’s overwhelming.

Sorry about the old thread. This came up in a goggle search for alternative to Drudge.

Worthwhile site that I didn’t see perusing the thread is http://patriotpost.us/headlines/
