VF Plots Blogs on the Spectrum — Opinionated or Earnest?

In a stellar hybrid of New York magazine's Approval Matrix and the fascinating Political Compass, this week's fun tidbit from Vanity Fair shows the big blogs on a spectrum from news to opinion and scurrilous to earnest. Who doesn't want to see where Politico stacks up against Radar, and Michelle Malkin against FireDogLake?

With rollover pics popping up fairly pointed descriptions of the blogs, it does fairly point out that the Huffington Post is shamelessly pro-Obama and that Drudge has an unfailing reach with his Republican-friendly headlines and ugly step-sister graphics. Go check it out and see if you agree with their rankings! Should Arianna Huffington and Michelle Malkin be next-door neighbors? Where do you think CitizenSugar would fall on the spectrum?

Oh Gawd, I never thought I'd EVER be associated in the same class as a treehugger... :rotfl:

I'd put Sugar about where Treehugger is - earnest news, but not so earnest that it isn't fun.

"I have never liked Pink is the New Blog. Maybe it's the black background with the pink writing. Also, has any one ever read the comments on I Don't Like You in That Way? That is a mean and nasty group of people. Racist, sexist, and mean." I totally agree! I think the layout keeps me away from Pink is the New Blog. Also, when I was in lawschool I had no time or energy to think beyond school stuff, so I didn't read for fun or have the ability to commit to time away, but I did start reading the celeb blogs - a LOT. Dlisted, IDLYITW, love Fug, egotastic, just jared, defamer, I'm Not Obsessed, Socialite's Life, Seriously omg wtf, celebitchy... and for all the random avoidance of contracts time spent cruising those sites mindlessly, I avoided the comments of the crazy/mean people who really really cared (the Brangelina threads, referenced just yesterday in another thread, for example)... I never got as regular to anywhere blog/comments wise till Citizen came along. It just seemed a little pointless to get in on the Britney debates, but actual news and politics and society has been fun... and feels less like a waste than an interesting conversation. And (for the most part) we don't get as crazy as some of those other blog commenters...

I like the commentary on IDLYTW... it makes me laugh... it is offensive, but I like that kind of humor.

Thanks HF. I got a fill in the blank letter from my daughter (via her preschool) That had lot's of great information on it. According to my daughter, I am: 9years old weigh 48 pounds and am 20 feet tall. I love to cook maccaroni and cheese (which I have never made for them) and my favorite song is "If you're happy and you know it". She's the greatest. :)

Dave enjoy the rest of the day with your kids. My dad is hanging with my brother and bowling. We all went to church together this morning and had a big breakfast. We'll have dinner and banana pudding (one of my father's favorites) later.

Everybody needs a happy place. My books and baking are what makes me happy. But, I'll give fug a try.

Fug is my happy place.

I've never been to Go Fug Yourself. I may have to check it out. I have been to Dlisted and it deserves to be in the scurrilous category. Michael K is sick, but funny.

I am proud to admit I get all my news and opinions from Citizen only. There's no sense in going elsewhere when it's covered so well here. Go Team C.S. :pucca:

Go Fug Yourself doesn't deserve a scurrilous placement! It's great, and its March Madness bordered on brilliant.

I like the Huffington Post. But I read it for the opinion pieces mostly.

I think a lot of people think that most liberals love Huffington Post. From comments, it seems like most on this site don't put a lot of stock into it and take it with a grain of salt.

citizen sugar would fall into a special place in my heart.
