    Want some more digital news stats ?

    The extensive sample covered 15 different sites during January 2012, including ABCNEWS Digital Network, CBS News Network, CNN Digital Network, Daily Kos, drudge report Fox News Digital Network, Google News, Huffington Post, MSNBC Digital Network, NPR, NYTimes digital, Politico, USATODAY digital, Wall Street Journal Digital and Yahoo! News websites
    Nielsen also focused on the News & Information sites that feature political content.

    Google News wins the race for the highest concentration of young visitors, those 18-24. Survey results showed that 23 percent more 18-34 year olds visited Google News in January 2012 than were active online.

    More results

    • Americans 25-49 are most likely to visit Politico and Drudge Report (31 percent).

    • NPR enjoyed the largest growth in visitors (up 21 percent since October 2011).

    • 28 percent of visitors to Wall Street Journal Digital have a household income of $100,000 or more.

    • Surfers who land on the Drudge Report page were most likely to have a bachelor’s degree; more than double the percentage of all active college grad Internet users (36 percent vs. 17 percent).

    Good Morning d.d. and all the sleepy heads.

    Goooooood Morning

    Board meeting then showing homes to newcomers to the area!

  • d.d.

    Morning, guys.

    Move over Ayers, there’s a not-so-new domestic terrorist in town

    Drug dealer, alleged child molester, and convicted perjurer, forger and Indiana Speedway Bomber (who is also believed to have played a role in the assassination of a grandmother), Brett Kimberlin spent 17 years in prison before his ultimate re-absorption into American society

    He started a non-profit dubbed “Justice Through Music (JTM)” that has, since at least 2005, been funded by George Soros’ Tides Foundation, John Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, and Barbara Streisand among other leftists

    Along with his associate, Kimberlin also started an organization called “Velvet Revolution” that supports the Occupy movement

    Any blogger — conservative and liberal alike — who has written the truth about Kimberlin has come under vicious attack by either Kimberlin or his minions, suffering death threats (veiled and unveiled), multiple lawsuits, loss of jobs and worse

    This is making the news on several websites today. Takes some to back track to check past facts , but, if you do your own homework , you will appalled.

    Ouch!

    Carney made his comments while berating reporters for not realizing that “the rate of spending — federal spending — increase is lower under President Obama than all of his predecessors since Dwight Eisenhower, including all of his Republican predecessors.”

    More Obama Hypocrisy: Obama National Campaign Co-Chair Works in Private Equity…Just Like Romney

    “Every issue Team Obama has tried has ended up blowing up in their face. First it was the dog issue. Then it was the imaginary “war on women.” Next was the gay marriage flip-flop. Now the private equity scheme is unraveling.”

    “One of President Barack Obama’s top campaign spokesmen is a private equity manager whose firm has shut down several factories and laid off hundreds of people amid a stalled economy.”

    Quanity does not equal quality or professionalism, or fair and balance. All it equals is that some like there news with some red meat. Yes Fox puts on a good show, great graphics, and know how to go right up to the edge without falling off. As for me, next to the comedy central it’s my favorite comedy network.
