Left vs. Right Blogs

So the assignment for the week was to spend a few days reading a left-leaning blog and a red-leaning blog. Left = democrat, right = republican (trust me, I looked it up on the Wikipedia and they never lie). So what have I found? Well, not much because I’ve had limited time to do anything online, BECAUSE IT’S PRETTY DAMN IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE DIGITAL CLASSES WHEN YOU HAVE NO INTERNET AT HOME!

So thus far, here is my comparison of the quick scans I’ve done this week (I used FireDogLake and Redstate for the study).

Firedoglake looks friendlier and more fun.

Redstate looks bitchier.

And what really pisses me off, I’m currently on the phone with Verizon, who is giving me trouble, and ads for Verizon Fios just popped up on Redstate. So now I don’t like that site.
