A Difference of Opinion: Not Every Top Blog "Has Had It" With Hillary
John Aravosis at AmericaBlog writes that every top blog "has had it with Clinton". That is patently false, whichever way you slice it.
One example: MyDD, which has more traffic than AmericaBlog.
In fact, out of the top trafficked liberal blogs, only Daily Kos, Talking Points Memo, and America Blog favor Obama over Clinton. Huffington Post as a news source seems to editorially favor Obama, but its multitude of bloggers can't be pigeonholed so easily.
These blogs will vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is. They have not "had it" with Hillary. Just as TalkLeft, which favors Hillary over Obama, will vote for Obama if he's the nominee. Democrats don't give up on each other.
Perhaps John has caught a bit of Obama's sense of hyperbole. Here are the top liberal blogs that write about the elections and weekly page view numbers, from the Liberal Blog Adverstising Network:
- Daily Kos
- Crooks and Liars
- TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime
- The Agonist:
- Political Wire
- Washington Monthly
- The Carpetbagger Report
- Taylor Marsh
