  • The 50 Most Popular Conservative Websites (Alexa.com says Free Republic at #7 beats MOST top names)

    Right Wing News ^ | March 16, 2009 | John Hawkins
    I thought it might be interesting to see which right-of-center websites actually receive the most traffic. So, I went to Alexa.com and ranked the 50 sites on the right. Do keep in mind that… 1) Alexa doesn’t distinguish between top level domains and their sub-directories. So, for example, a blog on Townhall and Townhall itself would have the same rating. Additionally, websites hosted at places like Blogspot, which list each blog on a sub-directory, can’t be measured. My guess is that it only knocked 2-4 websites max off the list including Ace of Spades HQ, Gateway Pundit, & Big Hollywood....

When I first came up with the idea of this thread I emailed TBL, NOTA and a close friend here for their opinions. I then expanded to email some ex-FReepers who were run off the site by some of the most vile creatures on the planet. Some who made up handles at TBL to continue their cult like obsession.

    Thousands of PCs worldwide may be unable to access the Internet beginning July 9 unless those machines are rid of the pernicious DNSChanger malware that first surfaced in 2007. The Federal Bureau of Investigation helped shut down the criminal ring responsible for DNSChanger in late 2011. The federal agency then briefly handled the Internet Domain Name System routing for all infected Mac and Windows systems.

    This is another index page from Free Republic's archive in 1999. While the discussion threads are all permanently lost, I was able to re-activate many of the links to the articles. So step on back into Free Republics past to see what stories Freepers found interesting enough to share with others on a Thursday night in early July of 1999.What strikes you as the most interesting of these posts, for me it was the post about States Fighting the federal governments decision to implement a National I.D.

    A dozen conservative activists interacted with dinner attendees including Woody Harrelson and Chris Matthews. As the nations elite journalists arrived at the Washington Hilton to hobnob with President Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner, many were met by a small group of protesters shouting "don't believe the liberal press" and holding signs adorned with photos of deceased conservative activist Andrew Breitbart. A few notable attendees politely mixed it up a bit with the protesters, who also shouted accusations of hypocrisy at the well-dressed journalists and Hollywood celebrities.

    Charges of media bias have been flying like a bloody banner on the campaign trail. Newt Gingrich excoriated the “elite media” in a richly applauded moment during one of the Republican debates. Rick Santorum chewed out a New York Times reporter. Mitt Romney said this month that he faces “an uphill battle” against the press in the general election. Meanwhile, just about every new poll of public sentiment shows that confidence in the news media has hit a new low. Seventy-seven percent of those surveyed by the Pew Research Center in the fall said the media “tend to favor one...

  • Alternatives to donor based, ie, freepathon business model?

    The Washington Post ^ | March 10, 2012 | Condoleezza Rice
    Much depends on who capitalizes on the thirst for change. As daily protests wane, the hard work of political organizing must begin. In this regard, the liberal, or right, forces (as they are known) need to address the Russian peoples concrete economic and social concerns. Too often movements have rallied around a strong personality with minimal connection to the populations aspirations. This time the liberals have a ready-made constituency in the rising middle class and its youthful vanguard. They cannot waste this opportunity. Otherwise, the standard-bearers of change could be radical nationalists, even warmed-over communists who might well tap into...

    Amid pressure from conservatives, the comedian Louis C.K. is pulling out of hosting duties at this year's Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner. Fox News's Greta Van Susteren yesterday called on journalists to boycott the dinner because of offensive and sexually explicit remarks Louis C.K. had made about Sarah Palin. The news that Louis C.K. would be hosting the dinner was criticized on Monday by Media Research Center president Brent Bozell and picked up the same day by the Free Republic's Kristinn Taylor, who later tweeted the news to Van Susteren. Louis C.K.'s agent told CNN's Peter Hamby that the...

The Atlantic argues that a lobbyist should get credit for coining the phrase in a trade journal circa March 2007, though the word appears in Free Republic posts the month before. In any case, the term was widely used before the bill itself even existed. And its really not coinage worth fighting over: whoever invented it displayed roughly the same ingenuity as the...

Governor Romney is none of the above. His record is that of an abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun grabbing, global warming advocating, big government, mandate loving, constitution trampling, flip-flopping liberal progressive with no core values.

    In an email to POLITICO this afternoon, Robinson admitted that the site routinely blocks Romney supporters from posting -- and offered no apologies for the practice: Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site. Governor Romney is none of the above. His record is that of an abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun grabbing, global warming advocating, big government, mandate loving, constitution trampling, flip-flopping liberal progressive with no core values. That and the fact that he is the chief architect and advocate for ObamaCare disqualifies him for any consideration whatsoever on Free Republic as a potential nominee...

    Keith Olbermann is not in the witness protection program, but he might as well be. His show on Al Gores Current TV (Americas least watched network) has lost nearly a third of its viewers in four months. Pretty impressive result for $10 million a year. Thats just his salary. Countdown with Keith Olbermann was a major draw when it was on MSNBC. On January 21, the network took a big hit when Olbermann announced on air that that would be his last show for them. Then in June, Current launched Olbermann and Countdown. It was no surprise that Olbermann drew...

    I'm having trouble finding any FR posting guidelines showing which sites may be excerpted, which are link-only and so on. I would have thought adding a link to that information on the page that appears when you hit "Post" would be a no-brainer, but I sure don't see anything like that. I've seen people referencing such guidelines quite a bit, but I've never found 'em.
