I wonder why that is. I bet it is because most of them have finally realized that Kos doesn't really have the best interests of the US people in mind.

I love DKos and visit 2 or 3 times a week. No other site comes close to capturing the essence of extreme left wing wackiness. I really miss their fake poll though that always showed Obama's approval 20 points higher than any other poll. Their shock and chagrin when they finally figured out what was obvious to everyone else was hilarious!

Maybe because it doesn't have a forum. I go to The Democratic Underground every day, which does. I also visit Huffington Post every day because I just like the format better than TDK.

As much as the right hates it and can't figure it out for some reason, democrats like to follow unbiased sites and news outlets to get their information and make their own opinions on the issues. Unlike the right which visit and get their news almost exclusively from far right wing websites and news channels which do all the thinking for them.

I agree. Democrats tend to come to conclusions based on fact evaluation, not wing nut theory or fear based advertising of some sites and TV networks.

I guess you haven't been to Democratic Underground, those brainless nut jobs make the Daily Kos look tame. It's great reading, they fight between themselves so much they usually forget what they were talking about in the first place.

Unbiased sites like the Daily Kos? Was that a joke?

Did you even read the link? Not a single person asked in the interview visits that site. I've actually never even heard of it until now.

So why don't you list some of these unbiased sites where the enlightened Democrats get their info?

I don't visit them or huffington unless their is a link here in C-D related to a topic. But I also don't visit any of the other hyperbullcrap sites that spout propaganda from other side.

But I do get most of my daily laughs here.


(Other then those immersed into politics, most people don't even know those sites exist, other then occasional references on cable tv)
