Free Republic went from getting 44% of the money requested
in their "Freepathon" last night to 70% this morning. I'd wager that they received a "gift" from a big time right wing organization.I wonder who's being so generous?

1. IIRC they don't toss in the money from monthlies until near end of fund raiser
from what I have seen on threads there of late. So they often get a late jump.

Or rush sent them some :)

5. I didn't know that. It just seemed odd to me that
they've had a lousy fundraising session this time and all of a sudden it's at 70%.

4. It's Murdoch.
He's fattening them up so he can sue 'em later for stealing his content.

What are those poor kids gonna do if Rupert really does take away their Fox News? Well, I guess they can always read Revelations for their news.

6. Who really gives a shit?

A lot of us here -- I'm guessing a majority -- have no interest in the Free Republic. We don't care what they say or do.

12. Sorry, but my comment needs to be heard. DU's obsession with Freepers need to end.

10. It wouldn't surprise me if they wanted to cook the numbers
so that they could holler about being desperate, to flogging the theme of "Only a few more thousand to go!"

They manufacture other "facts", why shouldn't their fundraising numbers be just as suspect?

13. Good. Maybe it means there is less money to spend on things that
actually might matter to a freeper.
