I've been contacted by a guy from "The Liberal Opinion" weekly, about advertising my site in his publication and perhaps more.  I'm not interested in paying to advertise my site anywhere (ain't got that kind of scratch, and besides, I'm an Internet-freebie kind of guy) and, in his words, "working together to further each other's messages," but if I knew more about his publication, I might be interested in writing for his publication or something along those lines.  Except I am only vaguely familiar with it.

Anyone in here know anything about the publication?  Slant, reputation, reliability, anything?  I'd like to know something about the publication before I respond to his e-mail.  Anything you can contribute would be helpful.  Thanks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I think its just a collection of syndicated columns by liberal authors that comes out each week.  I don't think there is really anything else to the maganize.  If I am thinking of the right thing, the same publisher also puts out the Conservative Chronicle, which is the same except with conservative authors.

    I read it for awhile and suscribed for a few years.  In time, it just seemed to be too much mainstream/beltway liberal pundit rehashing, with some exceptions: Hightower, Ivins, Scheer.  I wanted more in-depth analysis and now subscribe to Ameican Prospect, In These Times, The Nation, and Z.

    As I recall, it had no real advertisements.  It was simply a compendium of op-eds and editorial cartoons.  Maybe it's changing.

    I have subscribed to Liberal Opinion for many years and love it. It is a weekly compilation of current newspaper columns from well-known syndicated liberal columnists all around the country, and nothing else. Molly Ivins, Norm Solomon, Bill Press, Deb Price, I think Maureen Dowd, and so on. I am spacing out the bigger names because it is late and I don't have a copy around to refresh my memory -- I pass them  on to a coworker, who in turn eventually highlights certain items and sticks them in the mailbox of her conservative neighbor! So it's very reputable but not the kind of publication that accepts freelance work. Probably an older subscriber base; I first heard of it because my mom (age 81 now) subscribes and her demographic is not into online news/opinion access.

    Doesn't sound like the kind of publication that would be of any use for me and my site, but it does its thing and does it fairly well.  I've been to the Liberal Opinion and Conservative Chronicle web sites; they are, indeed, the same people as far as I can tell.
