Beating on the agitprop outlet formerly known as the National Newspaper of Record is a favorite pastime in the conservative blogosphere, and you could make a compelling argument that some blogs do little else. Which is not a criticism, mind you; it’s necessary work, and God bless the people that read the New York Slimes so I don’t have to. Still, I have to admire Elijah Lovejoy for his chutzpah in launching Stories They Forgot, a website dedicated to serving up all the news that the Gray Lady doesn’t see fit to print. It acknowledges its debt to Drudge, but the site is more than just a pile of links going off in all directions; instead, stories are organized by topic and it’s all news, without any opinion filler. Big Fur Hat at IOTWReport had some nice things to say about it, as did his commenters, and I think Mr. Lovejoy may have a hit on his hands here. Take a gander at it and tell me what you think in the comments.

    Definitely “Drudge-y” in its design. I like it!

    I just added it to my bookmarks. Drudge gets about a billion clicks a day and I’m pretty sure about a quarter of those are me checking for updates. Good to have something new

    That’s ‘Wombaticus, Keeper Of The Holy Ban Hammer’ to you, pal.

    I dropped by when I saw a link to it at Doug Ross. I was in a hurry, so I didn’t click any of the links. My first impression was not positive.

    But if it’s successful, I’ll come back and edit this comment to make it look like I was behind it all the way.

    Yours Truly’s comment has made the “What They’re Saying” widget at the bottom of the site… So, there, mate!

    I’ve also noticed that your twit is now playing on the site’s tweeter feed…
