What website do freepers recommend to get the political news since fox,drudge and coulter seem to be biased against gingrich? Thanks
I think you will like him.
Screw the GOP. Stop treating it like it is conservative or even honest. Call out their Gauleiters, nomenklatura, charlatans, stooges, whores and ward healers. Boycott or shun them and starve the surrender monkeys.
“RCP will give you a better idea of what the libs are writing about though, since they just link to their articles.
They tend to juxtapose liberal and conservative articles on a topic also, so you can read both sides if you want . . .”
Man, those were glory days back in the ‘80s, when I could sit down with my copy of National Review AND my copy of New Republic. Great education on how to lie through omission, or spin a minor fact into a major one. National Review had the MUCH better track record for telling the truth, but they did omit inconvenient facts that New Republic would cover, and vice versa.
Loved it. Something sad about being such a political junky so young though.
Drudge isn’t posting “news” about Newt. They’re running anti-Newt advertising 24/7 and totally ignoring any negative news about Romney, such as his advisor Norm Coleman saying they won’t repeal Obamacare. Do you seriously think if Newt’s guy said that it wouldn’t have made the headlines?
FR ought to create a nice-looking front page that could provide links to the articles posted here in the forum. There is definitely a market for a non-RINO Drudge Report at this point.
This one is probably 'the best!'
*sigh* Too much MMORPG . . .
“Romneybots, Paulbots, and RINO’s, oh my!” lol
A dozen anti-Newt stories vs. two positive Romney ones today.
He's not been posting corrections of headlines when debunked (Pelosi's comment & the ex-wife for two)
People are looking for BALANCE, not someone who just happens to live in FL clearly hard-lined against one candidate. Drudge should have the testicular fortitude to ENDORSE instead of playing manipulation games.
After about 15 years as a reader/viewer/listener to Drudge I've blocked his site this morning.
For the guys hollywoodtuna. Not that political, but could leave you less mad for a while.
I quit Fox some time ago. Drudge never was about news. It always has been about seeing what story conservative insiders are trying to kickstart at any given moment.
It looks like conservative insiders and conservatives are parting ways.
Its beginning to look like Pravda is the most reliable and unbiased source. Wow!
I'll add "Filthy Gophers!" to this.
You got that right, Sarge. Posting history:
Who and what are these trolls.zots,etc I am to watch out for? Am I supposed to learn a new language if I want to write on FR? Last year I stumbled onto this site and read it daily ever since. But being a simpleton in many ways it may be best to just observe. Thanks to you and all freepers I get to read stuff worth reading. (Kansas isn’t far away)
He’s a romneybot:
And he claims that Reagan was: “what about Reagans pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, tax-raising record as governor of California? His record was WORSE than Romneys.”
“Reagan once had a liberal record, too. Funny how he gets a pass.”
“I trust and support Mitt Romney because of his current positions on the issueswhich are indeed remarkably conservativeand his ability to defeat Barack Obama.”
Right Wing Champion, please show proof that Romney is now or ever was conservative.
His pro-homosexual stance, pro-gun ban stance and stance on taxes are not conservative.
“Right Wing Champion, please show proof that Romney is now or ever was conservative.”
If you think Mitt is just lying right now, then fine. But if he’s telling the truth and he really does believe everything he’s saying right now, then based on his positions, he is in fact (currently) a conservative. Sorry that bothers you.
MITT is lying, flat out.
Rush quotes Glenn Reynolds all the time. Why is Instapundit disgusting? He’s part of PJTV.
Humble and I were cracking jokes about blogs.
Not all blogs are equal, some are vastly superior than others.
And then there’s the ones that humble finds.
Sorry about that, I guess you’d need to see the blog pimps on FR to understand what we were joking about.
Trolls are those who come from other sites looking to stir up trouble.
Trolls get the zot, i.e. banned from the website by JimRob.
We speak English here, with our own slang. You'll be fine.
It won't be long before you smell a zot just waiting to happen...IBTZ = In Before The Zot.
Oh! I can understand now that I know it was an inside joke!
Reynolds links only to the best. He also links to a ton of regular news from the WSJ and so forth.
I don’t bother with regular news sites any more, except when something big is happening.
That's the problem...Mitt flips, then flops. I have no idea what his positions will be in the future.
Added. Thank you.
Now what about a website for up-to-the-minute news? Best suggestion that’s not Drudge.
I come here as this place sually has news from across teh country.
If something is happening in, say, Pennsylvania I just look up the PA Freepers and see what they’re saying.
My local newspaper is now Gannet owned, and hyper liberal.
Thanks. So far, so good. Kinduv like the format.
Sugar lips never did get back to me.
Guess he won’t ever now . . .
I dunno - newser’s partners are liberal sites like Slate, Huffington Post, and (slightly less liberal) Business Insider (as posted on newser’s site). You may need to look further to find a good news site that is not so biased...
Thank You for that link!
Interesting site that speaks my mind.
Marked for future read!
Getting people banned or suspended must be a marxist hobby of yours!
Why don’t you understand that some need time to be educated of the ways of FR before getting them thrown out?
The intolerance here at FR is becoming intolerable!
Well, that's mighty intolerant of you.
I do not get people banned or suspended. In fact, I spend a lot of time in FReepmail with n00bs, doing for them what I wish someone had done for me 11+ years ago, helping them to learn the FR arcana so as to keep them viable long enough to get their feet under them.
I am almost always IATZ, and if I'm not pinged, I never know that someone was banned or suspended.
If I am pinged, I do an after-action report on the zottee, and yeah, I dance in their ashes a bit, but I didn't get 70 people on my tiny ping list by being the bad guy.
You may want to aim your guns at the person or persons who are offending you, and not the innocent bystanders who are observing the action and commenting upon it.
And while you have nothing else to do, why not bump the FReepathon thread and make a nice donation?
I’ve been a monthly for years.
Thank you very much! Me too.
