What websites do people visit when they want to gain some insight into the views of the other side? Is there a conservative version of Daily Kos that people have found useful for this purpose?
I would like to improve my ability to have conversations with people who do not agree with me. Not total wing nuts, but normal people I might be otherwise friendly with at work or in my neighborhood who self-identify as Republican or conservative. What websites represent people like that fairly?
I am exposed to a fair amount of FOX News at my workplace. But I am not willing to sit and watch for long enough to really understand the mind-set. There are also frequent posts here at DK quoting or linking to particularly egregious or stupid statements from the other side. Are those representative? I doubt it. I would appreciate some suggested sites in the comments. Thanks!
