The outfit in question is www.FedSmith.com, and while its owners say it's "for the informed Fed", it's more likely to provide spun news, not-news, and outright GOP propaganda.

Want to get "soft banned" from their comments section in a hurry?  Try to post links debunking their articles.  They're not quite as quick on the trigger as Free Republic's JimRob and his kids, so you might actually get a few in before you suddenly find your comments hanging in Moderation Hell.

Have fun!

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.

    Should I be a rabid Nixon fan or a rabid Eisenhower fan? :-)

      You'll fit right in with the wingnuttery until you get to "communists in the State Department" and even then, they might not catch on.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

        ...need to make a speech about how

        I have here in my hand a list of 205 . . . a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department. . ..
        I doubt I could pull that off. I'd rather make a speech mentioning a dog:
        It was a little cocker spaniel dog in a crate that he'd sent all the way from Texas. Black and white spotted. And our little girl—Tricia, the 6-year-old—named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it.

    . . .just post a quote from Jefferson that goes something like this  . . ."government paid for by the contributions of the rich alone, where the poor farmer will see his roads paved and his children educated without contributing a dime of his own income".

    Go ahead, try it. I didn't last fifteen minutes. I am paraphrazing from memory. . .you will have to google it to find the exact quote. Mine may be exact, I'm just not sure. My memory isn't what it used to be.

    in trolling right-wing Intertoobs outlets. And yeah, I've done it. I've also tried engaging in good faith. The problem is that few will listen, and almost none will let fact trump ideology.

    They had an article about bad reporting in Ferguson - and I pointed out that THEY reported the FALSE story about Wilson's eye injury.
