The New Media

Cleaning out my in-box with a couple mass-emailed pass-alongs:

Jay Tharp has started up The Hard Left, "a 30-40 minute radio show for the more liberal minded. From Bush, to war, to liberal politicans, nothing is sacred." Hang on, if nothing is sacred, does that mean everything is sacred?
And David Pakman writes to tell us all that "I run a political commentary and research website, Hear The Issues," which I've added to my check-out-if-there's-time Bloglines blogroll under the folder called Magazine and News Sites, even though it's not really a news site per se. It's a little reminiscent of BoingBoing but more explicitly political most of the time. Still, any site that reproes the generic soft drink map can't be all bad, despite the plethora of Google ads on the right sidebar. Lots more interesting surveys and meaningless stats too, so wonks who are into this sort of thing will probably like it.
