Taking Another Trip Through Conservapedia Land

Buckdog is featuring another guest blogger today. My friend, The Watcher, authors Fundie Watch with the sole purpose of keeping an eye on the Religious Right.

"I thought I'd drop in and see how everybody's favorite unbiased, right-wing encyclopedia is doing these days. It definitely looks better off than it was back when I first found them, but they've gotten a lot angrier and bile-spewing. Creator Andrew Schlafly, started out trying to be more neutral than Wikipedia, but they've left that goal far behind and now just appear to be a right-wing propaganda machine.

Let's have a look at their "In the News" section on the homepage. This includes headlines that would be of interest to conservatives. When it's not obvious why they're of conservative interest, there's a helpful smartass remark after each one.

U.S. "abortions dropped a stunning 8% between 2000 and 2005" and the ratio of pregnant women who have an abortion fell to its lowest ratio since 1974: "given truthful information about abortion," "many women will choose life." .... The post continues here ....


This Campus Progress link shows a screen capture of the top 10 viewed pages in Conservapedia. See if you notice a theme.

Haha, don't mind at all, Buckdog :) I appreciate the extra exposure a little way's north of the border!

Cold enough up there for ya?

Hey Watcher! Actually ... we are having - yet again - one of the mildest winters we can remember. Thanks for letting me use your post here!
