I spend 1-4 hours a day consuming videos and chatter here and at sites linked to from here, all of which leans towards the liberal. It occurred to me (again) today that absorbing so many opinions and talking points that conform to my own isn't really being intellectually honest. So I figured I should find some to balance things out. I'm not thinking of watching half and half, but maybe for every hour I spend on stuff I like, I could spend 10 minutes on something that challenges me a bit more.
So I'm looking for some sites that will satisfy me.
I know many of you will just get a good laugh out of this, and that's fine, but I'm looking for -- wait for it -- some intelligent, fact-based, rationally argued and conservative media, like a conservative equivalent to "The Point". They can be libertarians, fiscal conservatives, whatever. They cannot be blowhards who spew crap that's verifiably bullshit, who argue from tautological (especially religion-based) PoVs, or who just spout their talking points and win by yelling louder.
OK, stop laughing, I'm serious. If you know of any sites that would fit the bill, please drop them in the comments. It doesn't have to be videos, but it must be open to public comments and have at least a semi-intelligent atmosphere.
Or if you think I'm dreaming, you can have a laugh at my expense too.
