Bit early for a comment of the day, but the early bird catches the worm
Cam’s writing reflects his political worldview, and by the stats, resonates with many people.
Some of those who are moaning about this seem to suffer from the “Everyone is Wrong but Me” syndrome. At times the left leaning blogoshpere seems more intent on making sure the message is unified and “moderating” dissent as opposed to putting forward a cogent argument for their case.
The team at the Standard and like-minded blogs certainly do not seem able to allow a reasoned argument against the line they are trying to promote. Here we have discourse, where opposing views are encouraged and allowed to remain, providing they do not get vulgar.
In fact, it got so bad at one point, those against Cam and WOBH engaged in a DOS attack to silence him, as we all remember. (I had withdrawal symptoms!)
I’d forgotten about that.
I read a quote last night highlighted by a reader that said
News¬†is what somebody somewhere¬†wants¬†to suppress; all¬†the rest is advertising
On that basis alone, what Whaleoil does meets the standard.
