I happen to catch this guy today on Fox and Friends and his views sounded interesting and fresh, after hearing Rove and Dick Moriss over and over again.
Murdock’s conservatism is of a libertarian bent. He opposes governmental involvement in issues relating to both gay and heterosexual marriage. Murdock himself is gay. He also opposes the War on Drugs.
I read National Review and I have subscribed to it online in my feed reader. But I have to say, when it comes to views online, liberals and democrats have been doing a better job. For knowing more about Conservative views, I watch Fox. But for knowing the Democratic and liberal point of view, I usually refer to sites like Huffington Post, Daily Kos etc. Not that there is any dearth of liberal channels like MSNBC, CNN etc.
