The latest issue of the media mag American Journalism Review gives a wee hint to the leanings of journalists. A study showed that the No. 1 blog read by political reporters is ... the lefty site http://www.huffingtonpost.com/.
Here are the top five in order:
- Huffington Post
- Real Clear Politics
- Talking Points Memo
- Daily Kos
AJR also interviewed seven political writers and found their top choices. USA Today's Chuck Raasch listed both HuffPo and Townhall. And ABC's Jake Tapper had a list of 11 blogs he prefers including, HuffPo, Kos, Instapundit, NRO's The Corner and, of course, Newsbusters.
