In Defense of Zero Hedge
I only started using Zero Hedge in my news consumption regimen over the past few years, so I'm not really familiar with its history.
So while I was doing some other internet research, I had to reference Zero Hedge's history and went to Wikipedia. (I know, don't do that.)
The very first sentence at Wikipedia: "Zero Hedge is a far-right...financial blog-"
Whoa, stop right there. I don't read far-right news sources.
When I think of the Far Right, I think of InfoWars.
Alex Jones is terrible.
When I think of Right-Wing news sources, I think of FoxNews, Breitbart, Daily Mail UK, or WhatFinger.
Breitbart: "Far Right"
Daily Mail: "Right Wing"
WhatFinger: If you google WhatFinger Wikipedia, there is no entry, but the category of "Fake News" comes up.
I consider Zero Hedge as an edgier version of Reason. Not right or left, but libertarian-based. If someone called Beacon of Speech far right, I would be insulted. We aspire to be a less serious version of Reason.
What would I consider to be the Center? Drudge Report
Drudge Report: "Conservative"
But also "shifting politically since 2019."
What would I consider the Left?
Network News channels
ABC News: No Political Leaning
NBC News: No Political Leaning
CBS News: No Political Leaning
CNN: No Political Leaning
What would I consider the Far-Left?
MSNBC, Huffington Post, and The Daily Beast
MSNBC: No Political Leaning
Huffington Post: "Liberal Alternative"
The Daily Beast: No Political Leaning
... you know what? I'm done here.
This is just frustrating.
