Who are they? I've seen them used in a few threads for "information" about the Democratic party. It's just a disinfo site. Is it even a little bit credible?

John Locke Foundation.
As it says on their website.
At the bottom of every single page.

www.carolinajournal.com...

Now who is the JLF?
A more libertarian leaning think tank based out of NC.
Funded by Republicans.
Focused on local and state govt more so than federal.
Wants lower taxes, less government socialism, I mean welfare programs, and real free markets instead of the mess that is alleged to be "free"

Is the Carolina Journal credible?
Well they have done some serious journalism, but as I believe with every article, you have to look at the angles. Is it written with clear bias, or is there mixing of fact and fiction, is there a significant underestimation or overestimation of a viewpoint? Every writer can be compromised. Every man has his price.

Hope I could be of assistance. If not, well who cares, it was my time to waste, right? (or do we have to buy that from the bankers now too?)

We might have to buy time from bankers in the future.

But thanks for the response and clarifying things about them. Now I know the extent of which I can trust them.

Frank, I believe it's best when you find articles or websites like that. To get the opposing sides view if available, and just like I demonstrated in your other thread. Get a middle of the road point of view.

You pretty much got it spot on.

Carolina journal is a monthly newsletter, radio show, and web magazine that thinks they can make up phony facts and state them as absolute truth in their articles so that their website gets hits.
