St. Louis, in the middle of “fly-over country,” is a hotbed of good conservative blogging, videography and investigative citizen journalism. Most bloggers also appear on Twitter (my twitter name is TheUnablogger – don’t forget “the” or you’ll get someone else). I tweet whenever I have a new blog post, and most other bloggers do the same, so you can track of new posts by following the blogger on Twitter. Some other tweet little details of their daily lives (consistent with Twitter’s original purpose “What’s happening?”), but I don’t.
For those who would like more news (not screened by the main stream media) and conservative commentary, here is a list of conservative blogs from the St. Louis area that I enjoy. (Liberal bloggers: compile and post your own list.) The name of the blog is a link to it. If they have YouTube channels or Twitter accounts, those links follow.
johncombest.com (John Combest)
The first web stop in the morning for most political insiders. No commentary, just a priceless collection of daily links to Missouri political stories from web sites of Missouri newspapers, radio and tv stations.
Gateway Pundit: Jim Hoft Twitter
Important political stories usually break here. I have even seen his blog cited on Fox News. So thorough, I don’t know how Jim has time to do anything else. Frequent guest on Allman in the Morning on 97.1 FM.
24th State Twitter
Important investigative journalism. Recent revelations include left-wing looting of the Jefferson County 911 system and Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s ties to ACORN. Frequent guest on The Dana Show on 97.1 (see next blog).
danaradio.com: Dana Loesch YouTube Twitter
Dana is the epicenter of nearly every conservative happening in the St. Louis area. She hosts The Dana Show (Week nights at 7 and (for a little longer) Sundays at 8 p.m.) on 97.1 FM (also available online in live stream). She is a frequent national guest of Greta van Sustren on FoxNews and recently guest-hosted Michael Savage’s nationally syndicated radio program. Her blog provides breaking news and her incisive commentary besides plugging the show.
Update: The Dana Show now airs weekdays, 2-4 p.m., still on 97.1. Marc Cox now does the Sunday show, and Sean Hannity’s syndicated program airs in Dana’s former weeknight time slot.
Live Out Loud: Dr. Gina Loudon Twitter
Gina’s keen insights on politics and human behavior can be read on her blog and heard every Tuesday morning on McGraw Millhaven’s show on KTRS 550 during morning drive. Her Political A List spotlights courageous stars across party lines.
Update: Gina got her own radio show on June 28, and now airs Monday through Friday, 4-6 p.m. during evening drive, on KJSL TruthTalk630, AM630.
