Iowa politico Craig Robinson is starting “The Iowa Republican,” which will be offering “News by Republicans, for Republicans.”
You can take a peek, but it won’t start dishing up the party line until March 4 at 7 a.m. I say the more the merrier on this big runaway train we call the media. Welcome aboard, right-leaning truth-seekers.
There’s always room for more perspectives. Yep, a wide array of viewpoints, that’s what I like. But of course, I’m biased.
The news release:
For years, many of us have complained about the liberal bias that is so prevalent in our traditional media outlets. While some are worse than others, conservatives and Republicans alike find it difficult to get the important news of the day without it being skewed by the bias of a particular news organization. So, instead of bemoaning the fact the Iowa lacks a center-right news organization, I’ve decided to create one: TheIowaRepublican.com.
I’m excited to tell you that TheIowaRepublican.com will launch on Wednesday, March 4th, 2009 at 7:00 am. The site will contain original news articles, editorials from our elected officials and candidates, press releases, various conservative blogs, and much more. I hope you will check it out.
In addition, the site will also contain a message board where you can interact with people from all across our state regarding the issues that you are passionate about and that you want to see discussed. Whether it is the gas tax, fair share, or even letting people know about a local county GOP event, your participation will help TheIowaRepublican.com build an online political community like no other.
While we are making the final last minute touches to the site, I encourage you to check out our video and splash page at www.TheIowaRepublican.com
I wonder if they’ll have a fashion section. “Flag Pins and the Pool, Be Patriotic without Getting Stuck.” Or food? “Surrender that French Silk, Comrade, and try some Apple.”
Sorry. I kid because I care. Welcome, and good luck.
