Video: Why Project PM Will Not Include Social Conservatives

I’ve decided to indulge in a little video blogging because my fingers are tired. Here, I explain the notable absence of social conservatives among those bloggers who have been announced thus far as participants in Project PM, which you may read about here. We’re recruiting all manner of erudite, honest folks to serve on our governing/legislative network, which is separate from the blogger network and which will oversee our existing operations while also conceiving and implementing new methods by which to achieve our goals. We have about 50 participants so far, including about a dozen prominent bloggers with a combined readership of several hundred thousand folks a month – and we’re growing rapidly. Click on the link above to find out why so many clever, influential people consider Project PM to be viable enough that they’ve dedicated their time and expertise to the effort.

Here’s my statement regarding the absence of social/cultural/religious conservatives within the Project PM network, illustrated by a recent incident involving blogger Donald Douglas of American Power, whose dishonesty is illustrative of the mentality of his degenerate peers as a whole.

Update, April 25

Douglas says he missed my e-mails and couldn’t find my corrections. He also thinks I look like Johnny Rotten, whom he claims is a social conservative based on the anti-abortion message of “Bodies.” I don’t know what to make of any of this so I’m going to go play outside.

    Well, I read your original post about this project and then listened to the video. It seems to me that lots of people think they are doing this when they set up blog sites–only the best writers, reader participation, etc.

    But yours promises something that I can’t see is possible. You will put up the facts of the news. Okay. But who is going to get those for you? In my little city, the local newspaper stopped sending reporters to city council meetings (for obvious reasons, not enough reporters). Local bloggers on the paper’s online site took up the slack and reported on events.

    Is this what you expect? How are you going to afford to have fact gatherers (reporters) in Iraq, every major world capital, every state capital, not to mention all the various institutions making up our own federal government? I think you mention only trusting the best sources or something, but who can they be? The NY Times? Reuters? They are main stream media. To be able to present facts as you see them, you should gather them yourself.

    In addition to commenting on them from your own “intellectually honest” point of view.
