This is an excellent map

I think I have ousted this before but worthy of doing so again. I strongly believe we should be looking at all these sites. I often hear at this site well that’s a right wing site, my issue with that is 1, even they get it right sometimes. 2, I no longer see any difference between msnbc then fox 3, most important to know what your opposition is thinking. My daughters boy friend, a young African american was in a class in law school taught by a billionaire, lover of capitalism and most of the things that were the antithesis of the young mans life. Being from the south, his mother was the first person in the family to go to college. He spent the time in class and out debating and questioning this man. I was amazed because I would have been screaming at him.

Thanks. Most distant relationship to power is how I like it.

Washington Post liberal? Ha! Some Overton window there….

In my book that is weird as well but I think in someways this is how they think of themselves but they are well put on closeness to power

I think in US the meaning of world “liberal” has been semantically shifting to what it always meant in Europe:
Classical liberal aka capitalist swine.
Cf. Obama “I’m proud liberal

I would take issue with the general ‘relation to power’ thing.
If sites are far from power, the assumption is it’s some person on their own, more or less, doing it.
I’d say the chances of some ordinary person creating a significant national political commentary profile without assistance from some kind of power are low.
Connections, $$, expertise/background or otherwise. Doesn’t mean its big power, but power of some kind.
And for some of these sites, the general public simply doesn’t know who’s actually in charge or what their background is.

‘Power’ is here synonymous with ‘establishment’.

What outlet is the “H” in the upper-left-hand corner? For some reason, it’s omitted from the key.
Obviously, there’s a lot of subjectivity here. For example, based on the times I’ve seen something from World Net Daily, I’d say there’s no way that it should be on the same line as National Review. WND (World NUT Daily) is definitely more conservative.

I don’t find a logo like that anywhere on the HuffPost website. Instead, they use all-caps HUFFPOST with a trapezoidal green bar on each side.
The History Channel uses a single capital H as a logo but it’s gold with more detailing — and the History Channel wouldn’t be in the upper-left-hand corner anyway.
I’d really like to know which site is the most liberal and the closest to power!

The “H” is from an older Huffington Post logo which looked like this…..
now as to the site’s credibility as “liberal”, let’s not forget that Arianna Huffington was still calling herself a Republican at the time she founded the site. And it has since been sold to the right wing AOL, which itself was then sold to the right wing Time Warner for a while, before being sold to Idjiot Pai’s “former” employer, Verizon. So while some of the folks who write for them may be somewhat left of center, the ownership has always been very much the opposite.
I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.
