Simply .. no need to read the lefty blogs when most of the MSM is already in the tank of the leftosphere.

Here's the study you're looking for, Tom:

JR

It explains why you always have liberals showing up at McDonalds to buy tires for their car.

BRD

The big unanswered question in the study is why someone chooses a cross-over.

Of the people that do read across the aisle, how many do so with an actually inquisitive mind, and how many are simply getting fodder for a rant or are hanging around to troll.

From time to time I will see folks from the other side of the aisle drop in for a bit, but the odds are quite low that they are actually there to engage or actually examine an idea - rather than to do a drive-by trolling.

SlimGuy

For what it is worth we had a lengthy discussion of this on a message board and the conclusion could be summarized is that the left side blogs tend to exclude right side posters more than the reverse.

Thus more left siders inhabit and survive in right side blogs (even as trolls) which would skew the numbers.

Also it seems that the right tends to say that only periodic checking is necessary to confirm that what is perceived as illogical basis messaging is occurring and it doesn't take a constant monitoring presence (even if read only) to determine outcomes.

Right siders seem to rely more on those who do observe the left to point to the most troubling content to keep many informed without having to create a need for vast right side observation of the left.

One major left side blog even keeps 'lurker' statistics of registered users that never post painting them as 'opposition researchers'.

RSS readers have actually made the issue moot.

Jane

Good Morning! My limited experience with lefty blogs is they rarely say anything. I just thought they were placed there as carriers of BDS coupled with mind-numbing adoration for the great Messiah.

A liberal with an interest in an opposing point of view appears to be a rare thing indeed. I note our own Appalled as an exception that proves the rule.

A righty who wants to keep up with left-of-center conventional wisdom can rely on the NY Times, the LA Times, the Washington Post, TIME, Newsweek, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, or MSNBC. Not exactly inaccessible.
---

Lefties would of course disagree with this list; the Post, CNN, ABC, NYT, etc. have drifted rightward over the years.

Judith Miller wasn't exactly a cause celebre in the leftyverse, and Fred Hiatt isn't a lefty luminary. Crowley, Blitzer and Beck? Please.

Charlie Gibson mouthing Laugherisms during a dem primary debate? Certainly not one of ours.

CNBC; Kudlow and his variants.

On TV, Keith is our guy; an oasis in the desert.

Neo
Eighteen percent of Americans think the sun revolves around the earth, one poll has found. Thus it seems slightly less egregious that, according to another poll, 10 percent of us think that Senator Barack Obama, a Christian, is instead a Muslim.

This certainly renders the 'Obama is a Muslim' meme pretty darn moot.

I am sure I am not alone in thinking "Why do I need to read left-wing blogs when I am shelling out $40 bucks a month for the Dead Tree NY Times?"

Few people have an appetite for being rudely insulted on a regular basis, having their intelligence, decency and patriotism questioned.
Ding! Joyner gets it; I don't think Jon "Hatred" Chait is in a good position to evaluate how inequitably the rude insults are distributed around the blogosphere.

Saying conservatives stay away from left-wing sites because they're close-minded is like saying Jackie O avoided convertibles so she wouldn't muss her hair.

That's an interesting question in itself; any good data on that? Not an ironic question; I'm genuinely curious.

But it doesn't hold up; if lefty blogs were more limited, the righties so inclined would gravitate to the remaining open blogs, so individuals with an interest in crossing the aisle still have alternatives available.

daveinboca

I get my dose of leftyverse thinking watching PBS Lehrer News Hour & Week in Review plus occasionally dipping into the less obnoxious offerings such as Wash Monthly or the Atlantic's stuff.

Drive-by trolling on tempting targets at Think Progress is this man's guilty pleasure.

Sue

Maybe the left leaning blogs should ask themselves why they can't attract a more diverse crowd to their sites? Naw...that would be too simple and require taking personal responsibility for writing Bush done it, no matter what the situation.

Sue

rather than to do a drive-by trolling.

Is there a way to get them to do the drive-by, instead of moving in?

daveinboca

left side blogs tend to exclude right side posters more than the reverse seems right as I have been evicted from two lefty "news" blogs for simply contradicting their inaccurate Middle East ravings against Israel. They don't like what they consider counterfactuals which are actually true.

Or sometimes my offering simply doesn't get accepted by the censor. Critical thinking isn't prized in some quarters of the left, as well as some on the right [I was regularly bashed in Freeperland].

I have tried to regularly post on a few left-side blogs like Obsidian Wings.

But it is the posters themselves that drive righties away. Often their responses are hateful and irrelevant to what you actually posted. So, why bother?

Even someone like Sebastian Holsclaw couldn't manage to keep posting there because of the way lefties attacked him. (Granted I am putting words in his mouth, but I believe it is close to accurate.) If I am not mistaken he is homosexual, against waterboarding and many other Bush policies. If the lefties drive him away what righty wouldn't be driven away?

bvw

I do not read "left-wing" blogs in general because they are full of insanity and pathological delusion. Regular exposure to such insanity does effect a person. The "right-wing" blogs have a occasional crazy post, but such are rare.

The grudge bearing is also found on the left, a lot less than the right. Although ten years ago it was found on the right side as well.

In general the right-wing blogs have been alive longer, and are more matured.

As an adult, try hanging out day after day with seventh graders, at their level and see what it makes you.

RW

--

Kevin Drum doesn't moderate the comments. And, no, dissent isn't necessarily allowed as I've had comments (including nothing more than one stating "hey, my previous comment was deleted") deleted that went against the lockstep groupthink.

Two words: Fairness Doctrine.

Well, those plus the fact that you have morons who think that the NYT & the MSM aren't tilted to the left. Emphasis on "morons", by the way. There's a reason that they need the gov't to take care of them, after all.

Jim Miller

I tend to avoid most leftist blog sites because so many of them, even the better ones, use such crude language. An example which is remarkably relevant to this study: Daniel Davies, who blogs with Henry Farrell at Crooked Timber, wrote an obscenity-filled post -- I forget what the topic was now. I wrote a light comment joking about his use of "effing" villages, though of course he didn't write "effing".

Davies exploded and attacked me, using extraordinarily crude language. (His reply was obscene, scatalogical, and, I suspect, libelous -- but I am not a lawyer, so I could be wrong abou that last.) When I complained to Farrell, he defended Davies. As did most of the commenters at the site.

Needless to say, I have spent less time at Crooked Timber since that incident.

By the way, although I don't have comments on my own site, I do write, from time to time, for a group site, Sound Politics. And I have, more than once, deleted comments from conservatives that I thought were out of bounds.

RW

One more thought: I've seen lefties proclaim their openmindedness by stating that they read all points of view, including right-wing sources like Andrew Sullivan, TNR and John Cole.

You know, really deep thinkers.....of the "Tim F" mold.

Patrick R. Sullivan

How did they control for Brad DeLong deciding non-liberals need not apply after a few years of him losing arguments?

RW

I tend to avoid most leftist blog sites because so many of them, even the better ones, use such crude language.

A staple of the modern leftist is a penchant for typing at a keyboard that which they would never - ever - state to someone's face. The Napolean complex is indeed alive & well.

Sue

The left are "free thinkers". It is truly a coincidence that they all say the same thing.

RW

How did they control for Brad DeLong deciding non-liberals need not apply after a few years of him losing arguments?

Heh, yeah, I remember posting info on tax data at his site that went against his 'needed' rationale. Deleted. Then, I posted "hmmm, the comment was deleted, but here's the official gov't site with the data that refutes Mr. DeLong". Deleted. Then, I simply posted the link with no commentary. Deleted.

In real life Jane would never attack someone for being nice, even if she thought it was 'the most despicable thing I can even think of'.

It's not a left/right dichotomy.

In general, if you don't wanna be called names, stay away from the internet boards.

Rick Ballard

TM's quick and concise shredding of the "study" demonstrates the primary reason why "crossing over" is a waste of time. I have to agree that lefties are much more "open minded". Stand next to one in a breeze and you can hear a whistling noise from the downwind ear.

Perhaps we could reflect for a moment upon acceptance by lefties of the infamous "600K killed" Lancet study as a data point wrt their ability to dispense with reason at the drop of a tear. Or their buy off on the AQ propaganda driven Haditha story as a reflection of their micro thin patriotism?

Somehow I just can't work up a sense of dismay for having passed up the opportunity to read the scribblings of the shallowest of thinkers emoting about the depth of their feelings. Even if I try very, very hard, I find that I just don't give a damn about what 90% of the lefties purport to think. Perhaps I should work on redefining "thinking" to include "typing without cerebration"?

Jane

Perhaps I should work on redefining "thinking"

Oh I'm pretty sure the left has taken care of that for you. It involves the commitment to never deal in facts.

If left blog readers are more open to other ideas, or whatever, how come all their sites are strictly controlled comment environments that allow NO alternate view with comments deleted and users banned if they don't toe the line?

matter; talking to a parrot is more productive. Yglesias's and other Atlantic sites, is as far as I'll go when I want to see the other side. Now 89, is you admit that Blix is not infallible; ie his missing the developments at Yongbyon despite three decades of work, we can talk. Not that I really want to; seriously Soros has a major

As a fiscal conservative and social libertarian, I have views that fall to either end of the spectrum. I find that both sides like to paint with broad black & white strokes when views are expressed that contradict the prevailing mindset. The left however, is far more likely to cast the offender into the pits of non-existent hell. Group think and thought control is far more pervasive coming from that side, IMHO,

MarkO

Clarice,

I made an attempt to engage 89 in a rational discussion. He retreated and began to take shots at Jane and others. He has nothing to offer but childish asides. Is this the best Obama can offer this group?

OT. I read today that Obama has NOT distanced himself from Clark's hateful remarks about McCain. BHO is so devid of any real experience or judgment that he must devalue McCain's real world and heroic acts.

As a teacher, DB, I understand your point. I teach in a very successful school district and am, well, more supportive of public schools.

All Jane ever had to do was say that her attacks were maybe just a little over the top; but her rigidity won't allow it.

The 'circle the wagons' reaction by the rest of the board probably didn't help matters, but it's admirable when people defend their own; I presume that Jane has some admirable qualities that justify the defense, but it certainly hasn't been in much evidence in any of her interactions with me.

Jane's original comments really were quite nasty and completely out of proportion to anything I had written; I suspect there are people here that agree with that characterization, but expressing a sympathetic opinion blunts the 'destroy the intruder' efforts.

Molon Labe

A conservative reading a liberal blog is easily put off by the incoherence and irrationality of the left. You just have to shrug your shoulders and say "where to even begin?"

But liberals come to conservative blogs because the liberal mindest is nihilistic and angry, and it gives them their fix.

Cecil Turner

If people keep engaging him, they are asking for this to escalate.

It's already disruptive to the point of making discussion tedious. Which appears to be the goal. If I were TM, I'd have banned 89 long since.

On the paper, the link giving the coding criteria (http://henryfarrell.net/flspaper/blogLRcodes.pdf) does not work. Based on the graphs, it appears they're calling Drudge a right-wing site . . . which IMO invalidates any conclusion, if it's used to draw any.

As to the variation of cross-cutting, the Kos quote masters the obvious:

Conservative debaters are not welcome simply because the efforts here are to define and build a progressive infrastructure . . .
And the paper concludes that's the most likely explanation for the observed difference:
We suggest that the most obvious explanation for this variation is the existence of a social movement type structure among leftwing bloggers and blog readers, and the absence of such a structure among rightwing bloggers and blog readers.
In any event, the numbers are small, and (if my reading of the graphs is correct) the percentage of respondents appears to be heavily weighted to the lefties . . . which makes me doubt the significance of the result.

Thet are calling Drudge a right-wing site - there isn't any doubt. This study should be filed next to the Lancet study in terms of value. I would also note that the study has not even been submitted for publication at this point - this is a little pile of lefty residue which can be read as an advertisement to join the KosKretinKommunity of the likeminded and lackwitted.

Jim

So lefty crossover readers outnumber righty crossover readers 4 to 1? Small wonder.

Leftism simply isn't equally plausible to conservative thinking. It's rather intellectually bankrupt in comparison. There is no good argument that economic egalitarianism to right or that traditional values are not worth preserving, etc. Leftism is something you snap out of by 40 if you have a brain.

Therefore, conservatives will find no profit in reading lefty blogs. As a result they will not surf there. Lefties, on the other hand, are liable to find their thinking bankrupt and to see reason. They are more likely to surf over to the other side.

TM provides a forum with his posts that have attracted a group of "regular" folks who comment and write beautifully. The thinking and links they provide help my understanding of what is happening in our country politically and reinforce my own beliefs.
When I have ventured into left blogs and read the posts and comments--the kindest thing I have found to say about their thinking is that it is rude. Some are even so bad that even taking a shower after reading them would not help. There is just not one positive thought going on in the lefty world that I have found.

This and other conservative blogs help me to learn about my world.

I used to read lefty blogs a lot, but I found that once you've read one, you've read them all. There's only so many ways to say "Bush is Hitler" and "Iraq war=wrong".

I kept saying to myself, "OK. I got it. What else do you have?"

Now, to be fair, there are some conservative blogs who do the same thing. Blogger posts, commenters echo.

The difference is that lefty blogs all operate this way, whereas conservative and libertarian blogs seem to stimulate more original thought.

Since such noble sacrifice should be honored, I'll leave you in peace, Jane. And I will say on parting that your defense of gay rights is admirable; none of us are as cartoonish as the opposition would like us to believe.

"On TV, Keith is our guy; an oasis in the desert."

More like a mosquito in the swamp.

To the topic at hand, left vs right blogs. I read the left blogs frequently although I gave up trying to post (on the ones that theoretically allow it from someone with a right of center view) long ago. 89 is a testament to the difference between the genres.

He occasionally offers up something worth consideration but more often than not the post is a distraction from anything relevant. He would have been banned on day one at 80% of left blogs right out of the gate but is still offering up inanities here, for weeks now.

I had my last discussion with the left re: Libby over a year ago. For merely pointing out that it was Armitage who leaked Plame's name I had all comments deleted and found my inbox spammed w/character assassination and veiled threats. Before the comments were deleted the other posters had maligned me personally and suggested that I should be removed from polite society for merely pointing out that Libby had been prosecuted on a process offense.

Politics is personal on the left, far more so than on most right of center sights. There are exceptions but I think the rule generally holds.

This kind of abusive repartee is clearly a crush, but it's still kind of disturbing, in a "Fatal Attraction" sort of way. Now the facts, Drudge is clearly a typical populist, who sometimes leans right,
sometimes leans toward the anarchist left.
