So I take it National Journal is a right-wing publication?

*note: I have never laid eyes on it before today, if that tells you how well-read I apparently am not.

1. Here is a guide, "News Prism", a website that led me to the DU!

It would appear that National Journal falls in the relative center of publications.

4. looked through the list--listing KO and wikileaks as villains? really?

that, and listing the three major networks and cnn as left/progressive? what are they smoking?

5. I don't for a minute vouch for them as having a lack of bias.

But it is a collection of links listed, roughly, by left or right lean.

And among all of them, DU is still the very best.

9. Some good shit, obviously . . . .

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is NOT a progressive or even a centrist paper. They frequently endorse right-wing political candidates, they made themselves a laughingstock in 2004 by cowardly supporting neither candidate (because the publisher said "We're supporting Bewsh or we're supporting no one), frequently put pro-business and pro-free-trade screeds in their Business section, have repeating Bircher fossil LTTE writers that may as well be columnists and sport the Dumbest Columnist on Earth (Kevin O'Brien) on their editorial board.

Politico, Time and New Republic as "Left" magazines?? Thomas Friedman on the "LEFT" side??? Right, because I always like MY leftists to be war sponsors and corporate apologists.

The worst is CNBC listed as "Center". What the FUCK? CNBC couldn't be more of a propaganda arm for the Republicans if it dug up Reagan, gave it a voice and had Joe Kernen conduct an "interview" with it. In fact, any news network owned by a profiteering corporation cannot be construed as "left".

3. A wise man, Bert Bell often said "on any given Sunday, any team in the NFL can beat any other team."

Something along those lines can be said about every publication in the world...

"On any given day, any publication DU disagrees with is a right-wing publication."

7. I think I am discovering that even among us, I am further to the left than most. I always thought

I was an average Democrat, but I wonder. When I read that front page I right away thought right-wing take on the presentation of most stories. However, I went back and found one with a left angle, so maybe the balance is there.? I bookmarked it.
