"It’s yet another endeavor by opportunistic conservatives to jump in to fill a void created by the economic woes of traditional media. Media that want to use the stories can do so for free. You have to take your hat off to conservatives for being creative in spreading their message and masking their true identity." —Dave Zweifel, Capital Times
