New Left-Wing Website Is Doomed

The story is about former Fox News correspondent “Campaign Carl” Cameron joining a website called Front Page Live, but that’s not the real story. Instead, what caught my eye is that the site is run by Joseph Romm, a former Clinton administration official who has spent more than a decade at John Podesta’s Center for American Progress:

Cameron teamed up with Joseph Romm, the founding editor of ClimateProgress, to create Front Page Live, the Post reported, which describes itself as “a site dedicated to helping diverse voices and content go viral, and a news source that reflects the values of the majority of good people on our amazing planet.”
“Part of our goal is to be an antidote to the Drudge Report. But whereas Drudge aggregates and viralizes right-wing content, which includes a lot of disinformation and climate science denial, we will aim to aggregate and viralize accurate news,” Romm, who serves as editor-in-chief and CEO, said in a statement to The Hill. “We are ‘liberal’ only in the sense that climate science has been labeled ‘liberal’ by climate science deniers.”
“We are trying to be a place that will save people time because it’s simply way too hard for anyone to sip quality water from the open fire hydrant that is online news and social media — especially because there is so much sewage thrown in,” he added.
Romm told The Washington Post that he views the organization as a “viralizing engine” for the left.

You want to launch a news site and you start by smearing Drudge?

The assertion that what Drudge does is “right-wing . . . disinformation” shows how out of touch with reality Joseph Romm is. He is a monomaniacal fanatic, obsessed with “climate change,” and if you put somebody like that in charge of a news site, failure is guaranteed.
