A Rational Voice?? Yeah, in a pig's ear.

In case you haven't seen it yet, there's this Neo-Lib (as in Neo-Nazi) site called "The Raw Story, A rational voice - Alternative news." Well, they got it half right. It is alternative news. But I would not call it "a rational voice." In one particular story, about former CA congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham,", the story it's self is one sided. Telling ONLY that story of his obviously disgruntled wife.

While I'm certain she may have legitimate grievances against the former congressman, her story is nothing compared to the vitriol and viscious attacks made by the readers. When I looked at the story, there were 41 responses, all negative, some attacking Mr. Cunningham, and some just attacking anything and everything related to the GOP. What gets me, the Neo-Libs have long called us hate-mongers. Yet, all they can spew is hate when they talk about us.

Of course, when I finally got through reading the story, and decided to look at the website as a whole, I found out why it was so anti-GOP. The whole site is devoted to being GOP-bashing. They've got a fake ad in the right side bar, "Bush's Brain, $4.95, download to own." I know free speech is one of our cornerstone rights. So I hope everyone will understand when I say that "The Raw Story" is just plain full of bull manure. And I hope they all choke on it.

Of course, as always, this is only my opinion. But this is America, and I'm entitled to my opinion, and my right to express it.

You mean there are partisan websites out there? The horror!

A partisan website? Nah, more like a whiner website. Which are pretty much all over, claiming to be "news" or "informative" websites/blogs. All they really do is spew their own garbage, putting down the President, the USA, and calling 9/11 a gov't conspiracy. Hey, it's a free country. They're entitled to their opinions. I'm just amazed at the number of gullible people who belive their garbage.

Whatever, Al. No better place to whine about a partisan website than on a partisan blog.

To be clear: Raw Story publishes news from all kinds of sources, mainstream and alternative, as well as its own reporting and opinions by staff writers and nationally recognized Left-leaning pundits. They do far more than "spew their own garbage." And you'll find very little 9/11 conspiracy news on Raw Story, although the discussion forums include plenty of it.

Anyhow, thanks for the link -- more hits for the Good Guys! Bwah-hah-hah-haaaa!

If Raw story publishes news from all kinds of stories, how come all their stories seem to have a left wing bent to them? Rather biased if you ask me.

As for the links, how else can I inform people of what's out there if I don't link to it?

As for who the "good guys" are, that's always been a matter of perspective.

RS is what it is -- a news organization that wears its corporate bias, its "perspective," as it were, on its sleeve. Like Fox News, in a sense.

You were absolutely right to link to RS, Al. People should be made aware. Attention must be paid. I hope you do it in every post.

Actually, put a link on my blog, so good people know what to be on the look out for. ;)
