Liberal Blog Redundancy

Blogs appeared on the scene as an alternative to the main stream media, which appeared to many to filter and slant news to the purpose, less of disseminating factual information, than promoting a liberal agenda. Fed up with the propaganda of the main stream media, many turned to talk radio and the blogosphere to express their frustration and obtain a view of events free of the agenda-driven bias of the liberal press. These "Notes from Underground" were the nascent efforts of a literate, savvy segment of the population determined to disseminate the truth of matters which the main stream media ignored, covered up or outright lied about in the interest of supporting a liberal agenda. The blogosphere was born as a spontaneous, grassroots rebellion against the suffocating political correctness and tired, impotent liberalism of the main stream media.

The very notion of a liberal blog is redundant. That perspective is already amply covered by the main stream press -- which is also why Rush Limbaugh has 20 million listeners while Air America is a dismal failure, reduced to appropriating funds from the needy children and alzheimers victims of New York to fund its operations costs. Liberal views and distortions are not an alternative to the main stream press, merely a reiteration.
