5 Favorite Conservative web sites.(Vanity, Vanity! All is Vanity

5 Favorite Conservative web sights.(Vanity, Vanity! All is Vanity)

The last time we shared opinions we discussed our 10 favorite AM conservative radio announcers.

In that discussion, I personally got some excellent advice from you. And I have started to listen to a couple of announcers that I hadn’t before.

Now I would like to tell you about five conservative web sights that I like to visit, and I would appreciate learning yours.

1. Free Republic of course is number one. (Job well done)

2. Town hall conservative news. Visiting this sight for me it is a great way to keep current on the works of the 50 some conservative editorial writers that they monitor, as well as several conservative AM radio announcers which otherwise would not be available in my community.

3.Rush Limbaugh.s web sight: My favorite section of his sight is the one where he lets his subscribers review the 50 to 80 national and international news articles (concerning current affairs) which he feels are particularly relevant to debate on his show that week. (As you know most radio commentators limit each days topics to just one or two topics. And I like to be able to listen to his AM radio show 24 hours a day, if I miss it on the radio.

3. Drudge: It is always worthwhile to hit the sight most days, to pick up topics which may, but probably won’t be released by the liberal news services to the masses the next day.

4. CNSNews.com This sight is blatantly conservatively oriented. (And reviewing it is a good way to help balance the propaganda from the liberal.s news axis of anti-American evil that infects our social environment.)

5. Accuracy in media: The news has such a powerful influence on political and national affairs that it is always interesting to see how the liberal press (people of the lie) are distorting the truth this week.

Internet participants tend to be better educated and more successful than the general public. They also are more likely to attend a Church, Synagogue, or Mosque. Understandably Conservatives dominate the internet. The fact that internet users have immediate accesss to primary news sources of course prevents liberals from using the (big lie) propaganda techniques that Goerbles and Trotsky had taught them to use. As Hillary Clinton said (the internet is particularly dangerous since the public has immediate access to the news before WE HAVE A CHANCE TO EDIT IT) To bad for Porky !

Well those are several of mine, I look forward to learning several of yours.

Sincerely,

Pliny

Another vote for Jewish World Review. Are we allowed to mention Lucianne.com? Her Short Cuts are hilarious.

Nice topic. I've often wondered where other FReepers visit. One of mine is Chronicles Magazine

I'm almost exclusively a FReeper nowadays. Laziness, I guess...anything worth reading will typically get posted here sooner or later.

However, I do hit

http://www.jewishworldreview.com,
http://www.enterstageright.com,
http://www.foxnews.com, and
http://www.lewrockwell.com

on occasion - all for different reasons.

I've discovered a lot of neat little personal opinion websites on freerepublic, but the one that I visit almost as regularly as freerepublic is Jewishworldreview.com -they have an excellent, daily updated collection of articles (Julia Gorin is a favorite) followed by:

2)Frontpagemag.com --gotta love David Horowitz's perspective, having converted to the conservative side after being deeply involved with the radical left.

3) Nationalreview.com

4) memri.org --not conservative, but an excellent place to find out what the Muslim nations are really thinking

In addition to your list, I recommend:

http://www.amconmag.com
http://www.americanprowler.com
http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org
http://www.lewrockwell.com

That pretty much covers the spectrum of breakaway conservative thought on the web.

My favorite WebSite is Norman Liebmann's Firehat.
It's a BIG collection of Clinton and Media Bashing.( That just means he calls them on their B.S. ) It just doesn't get any better.I've read him since 1998. Check out his Archive Articles,They are Glorious Comments on History as it occurred.

btw - I wouldn't put drudge on a list of conservative websites. He likes to play both sides against the other and he's taken to popups, which precludes any semblance of humanity.

years ago, fox had a site where all news was listed in a collumn and updated every hour...you could simply go down the list and click on what you wanted to read...no special graphics...just news.....

then they changed their format a little....now I have to search several sites for just the newest breaking news...any suggestions???

To be honest, there are few sites that deal with "news" before trumping "opiniion" and "commentary".

Foxnews used to do a good job but as you stated the format is lacking. Yah0o & MSN miss the boat and are usually a day of so behind the action. Here at FR is probably your best option coupled with http://wire.ap.org. While the AP can be slanted, it at least has the news broken down pretty well.
