    Are you comparing internet traffic of your thing to the print circulation of the Weekly Standard?  That's misleading, IMHO.  

    I think it would be really interesting to look at the total readership of the WS, including people who read it online.  I think that most politically active people do their reading on line these days, so that 80,000 number might be a vast understatement.

    Once we get the real, total numbers, we can compare apples to apples.  I have a feeling progressive media will still win out, but it would be interesting to see a fair comparison.

    All this wasted time learning and acquiring skills... And all along I should have just squinted to see Russia

      If we REALLY want to compare apples to apples, let's compare progressive media that loses 5 MILLION dollars a year to the Weekly Standard.

      Considering TYT's budget (which is clearly not even close to 1 million), I think the basic point of the OP still stands (let's put TYT in a position to lose 5 million a year and see who comes out on top).

      And again, the even larger point is that conservative propaganda (er, I mean media) is propped up by big money donors who are willing to bleed cash as long as their pro-corporate message is pushed.
