Weblogs captured by the Right

Interesting article by James Crabtree of Vox Politics on the phenomenon of blogging which suggests that commentators of the right have cornered the market in the US, creating large networks of compelling knowledge, which by and large goes poltically unchallenged.

I’m not sure Letter to Slugger O’Toole actually fits into neat categories of Left and Right, any more than the politics of Ulster in general does (see here and here for context).

But there is a wider world of weblogging out out there. If you’re not familiar with the wider blogging world, you might begin with Andrew Sullivan or Instapundit for a taste of the right, or Brendan O’Neill and Stephen Pollard for a left perspective, and lots of links!

As the man said, if you have a view, get out there, and get blogging!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
