New Crooks and Liars Site
(Via Group News Blog.)
If John Amato's site gets any bigger, the next sporting venue that opens up in Pennsylvania may be named Crooks and Liars.com Stadium.
At roughly the same time that Time Magazine named Crooks and Liars one of the top 25 blogs in the world, C&L spun off a new site. What's truly remarkable is that, among the top 25, Amato's site that now features commentary by bluegal, d r i f t g l a s s and David Neiwert among others, is one of the very few devoted to politics (Such as the incredibly overrated HuffPo, #1 TPM, Sullivan's Daily Dish and Paul Krugman's Conscience of a Liberal. Daily Kos made their list, too, except as one of the most overrated blogs. Ouch.).
The new site. Right, right. Well, it's called Newstalgia and it's dedicated to current events as told through historical events and figures. Think of the vintage "newspaper" front pages of The Onion only without the dry humor and ample chuckles.
Unlike Amato's original site, this place is just getting off the ground and hardly gets any comments (and anyone who gets less comments than I do is in serious need of help.). So go on over to Newstalgia and decide for yourself whether you like it. Myself, I liked the post devoted to Father Coughlin and the origins of right wing hate radio considering a recent but far from resolved runin that I'd had recently with another practitioner of right wing hate radio.
