John Hawkins at Right Wing News raises a good question in his discussion of Frum Forum. Why don’t conservative bloggers get media gigs?
Let’s say you don’t like my material — well, I’m a peon compared to Ed Morrissey & Allah at Hot Air. Ace from Ace of Spades HQ has proven he can draw and hold a big audience. Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit does phenomenal work and probably draws and holds 4 readers a day for every one Frum has. How come those guys aren’t writing for CNN? Where’s their column at Time? Where’s their blog on the Washington Post explaining the conservative movement?
John offers his own answer which I largely agree with. Frankly, the reason there is a JournoList and not a conservative alternative is because the MSM has elevated every semi-reputable liberal blogger and left their conservative counterparts on the bench.
