That's a great idea, George! This thread is now a sticky and references to other members were removed (I did it as a precaution, this thread has no use for drama ).

Same with HuffPo, but if you look at what commentators he links to, you'll see where the bias lies. There's a reason Drudge has a mostly conservative readership and Huffington has a mostly liberal one, and I don't think it has so much to do with the topics or the news as the sources and the editorializing that accompanies them.

again i'm gonna have to disagree with you. Drudge Report is strictly a headlines source and he has reporters with inside contacts in places but effectively is nothing more than a news aggrigator. it is also sans any commentary unlike HuffPo. there is absolutely nothing about HuffPo that is remotely right of center other than some of the detractions they have to make sometimes. thats not my opinion thats fact. every one of the commentators and pundits that blog at Huffpo (it's also a blog unlike Dridge Report) is either a liberal writer or Democratic Congressperson

give me one regular conservative columnist over at HuffPo, i'll list twenty Liberal ones that Drudge only links to.
