I used to rely on Politico as a key source of news, but I’m not a big fan of late. I find myself bored with it, and it seems to be drifting very mainstream media, with all the inherent liberal biases that entails.
Sure, it may just be my impression, but there does seem to be an increasing go-soft-on-Obama, mock-conservative-Republicans, subtly-bash-Palin attitude at Politico. Ben Smith and some of the other bloggers there are still worth the read, but the feature articles have been lacking.
I find myself turning much more for information to The Hill. In fact, The Hill is my new favorite site for information on what’s happening in politics. I find the articles to be very straightforward and neutral, providing information not available elsewhere in a timely manner.
So The Hill is my new favorite read.
