The Sinestrosphere Seethes
— Ace

Just keep scrolling.

I know I'm an interested observer, but does it not seem that one half of the blogosphere is nothing but rage and weapons-grade crazy, and the other half is pretty sensible and on-the-level?

Will anyone in the media ever notice this? Not to beat a dead horse, but everytime a commenter says something untoward on Free Republic or LGF, it seems to get cited by the MSM. Meanwhile, the actual owners/operators/writers/proprietors of left wing blogs are writing all sorts of unhinged nonsense and the MSM doesn't say a peep.

The media doesn't cover blogs much, and I'm not suggesting they should do more of it, necessarily. What coverage they offer is superficial and vapid. But if they are going to cover the phenomenon, they really should note where the real political craziness is. And it's not on the right.

1 This is true what you say Ace. The ideas on the left side of the blogosphere are nutso. Both sides have their share of bad language. One side gets cited by the MSM as nuts though.

I've got to go get "SwiftBoated" now. See ya.

2 Gets back to the post you had earlier today about blackmailing a US Senator. I guess I wasn't clear before. Its a friggin felony and for some reason its not even being mentioned in the press let alone acted on.

3 and, not to put too fine a point on it, the comments section of LGF requires you to go that extra mile and 'CLICK' on the comments button.

You have to go look for it.

The Kossian/Atrian idiocy is on the front-page.

4 The MSM don't report on the nutsoisity of the left blogosphere because they don't see it as nutso, they see it as normal. That said, there is of course no liberal bias in the MSM.

8 Did anyone else expect the post to be about Green Lantern's archenemy?

9 "What is best in life?"


"To Crush your enemies, drive them before you and hear the lamentations of the women!" BOOYAH!

10 To defeat your enemies, see them driven before you,
and to hear the lamentation of the wackos.

11 Why should the msm write about leftist bloggers? That's not news - that's looking in the mirror.

The difference between the msm and leftist bloggers is style, not substance. Oh and dishonesty vs. honesty - because the lefty bloggers don't lie about their biases.

14 "To Crush your enemies, drive them before you and hear the lamentations of Maureen Dowd" who is the closest thing that the NYT has to a woman.

19 I had to leave the page. Something kept either reloading or sending out info while I was there. Paranoid? Perhaps, but they still are out to get me, you see.

20 I notice an ad banner here says "Read about how news is reported and produced at CBSNews".

At least they're being upfront about "producing" it now.

21 Good point, BumperStickerist. Every place has its whackos. Rightist whackos are just as bad as leftist - and the MSM's free pass to leftist whackos is quite dishonest, indeed.

As much as LGF may have what may be considered to be unhinged commenters, I suspect more hinged posters do chastize the more askew ones. I have seen Charles delete certain comments - but with the number of comments that floods his threads, it's somewhat unrealistic to expect all will be screened.

Which is why I like more intimate places like AoSHQ.
