Conservative Newspapers in 50 States

After having a good email exchange with Mary Katharine Ham from Hugh Hewitt's blog, I've decided to expand my Newspaper Bleg from this morning. Let's try to find, if possible, the most fiscally conservative newspapers in each state. Thanks to the Internet, it's now possible for people to read whichever newspaper in the country (or in the world) that's most appealing to them, but at the same time, read something that has some local relevance. If you want to offer suggestions of conservative newspapers that you are aware of, post a comment or email me at aroth at clubforgrowth dot org. If you have sent me your suggestion and I don't list it, it's not necessarily because I don't agree with's just that I haven't been convinced of a newspaper's conservative bona fides yet. For instance, a newspaper that slams Washington's big appetite for pork isn't enough. There needs to be an overall editorial distaste for government intervention in the private sector. At the same time, if you think I've made a mistake, and have listed a liberal newspaper below, let me know and I'll reexamine their credentials. UPDATE (4:51pm): Mary Katharine offers an inspiring call-to-arms for this little project. UPDATE (5:01pm): One reader suggested the obscure Winona Post in Minnesota. Now that's what I'm talking about. We need to unearth more of these little gem newspapers. UPDATE (5:52pm): The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has been suggested, but they have a subscription-only website. If there are more comments vouching for it, I'd be happy to add it. I'd love to have a newspaper on this list that has "Democrat" in its name. By the way, I hate being the final arbiter for this project. If it were up to me, I'd create a market that decided which newspapers were truly conservative by letting people make weighted votes that somehow included incentives for being truthful. But now I'm rambling... UPDATE (8:46pm): A reader just pointed me to the rarest of species -- a tiny, conservative New England newspaper. Meet the Waterbury Republican-American in Connecticut. Great name, and from what I've read, great editorials. So here we go: bq.
