It’s hard to believe that five years ago, the Drudge Report was a major player in conservative media. Since whatever happened to Matt Drudge happened, the site has been a cesspool of mainstream media propaganda and leftist talking points.
Many patriots turned to social media to fill the void with prominent conservatives posting links to important stories regularly. That’s dead as well as far too many topics are forbidden on Twitter and Facebook. There are social media alternatives that may come around, but so far Gab, Parler, and similar freer speech social sites have not been able to reach a tipping point for conservative news.
We’ve been able to address this by constantly scouring the newer conservative news aggregators. Similar to Drudge Report but with bona fide conservative values, there are four that have stood out from the rest. We’ve explored them all, and while there are some other good sites out there, they fall short in some way to these four.
For complete transparency, I’ve communicated or even worked with the owners of all four sites listed below, just as I’ve communicated with the owners and operators of other conservative news aggregators. The reasons these four stood out is because they fit a handful of criteria I consider important:
- Updated throughout the day, every day
- Wide range of conservative sources
- Minimal if any listings of mainstream media outlets
- Truthful reporting without fear (one of the other decent news aggregators disqualified themselves from this list because they stopped reporting on voter fraud topics by early December, 2020)
- Good interface and design
- America First focus
- National outlets (I love Press California but they’re regional and therefore can’t quite make this list… but check them out anyway)
Without further adieu, here are the four sites every patriot should check out, bookmark, and visit daily:
- The Liberty Daily: This is by far my favorite. They look and feel like Drudge Report but with an unabashed focused on conservative news. They start updating early East Coast time and continue until the end of the evening in the West Coast. If you only visit one, make it TLD.
- Uncanceled News: The newest in the group, they’ve proven to be quite fast at getting breaking news out there. Updated throughout the day and with a strong selection of sources, it’s a quick and easy way to get your news and commentary fix.
- 63Red: This is arguably the most functional of the sites on both desktop and mobile. It’s clean and the links are very strong.
- Conservative Playlist: I may be biased since one of my proteges built it. But there’s another reason it stands out. It’s the only one we’ve found that includes sections for podcasts and videos. I’m not crazy about the fact that they post excerpts first instead of direct links, but I’ve gotten used to it.
It’s imperative that conservatives remain as aware of what’s going on in America as possible. We can’t rely on mainstream or social media for that and sifting through hundreds of sites is time consuming. Instead, we just need these four.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
