Of the shrillest of the Right Wing Blogosphere, many of them seem to belong to either NARN (Northern Alliance Radio Network) or the MOB (Minnesota Organization of Blogs - newer bloggies hoping to be invited to speak on NARN). GIMEC is much like the puppy in There's Something About Mary. "So, you're the tiny fellow making so much noise."
NARN is a group of Think Tankers and Frat Boys put together by Commissioner Hugh (Hewitt) to fill in for him when he takes long vacations. (See also "Hughbris")
NARN's radio frequency can be heard for nearly 30 minutes driving radius of the Twin Cities. NARN's blog influence unfortunately is much wider.
NARN consists of
Powerline, The Frat Boys, The Scholars, The Captain, Newhouse's James Lileks (and the Star Tribune, yeah, I don't get it either), Spitbull, and Mitch Berg.
MOB has many members on their blog roll.
prune their ranks to only those who agree on every front
Why is this important? Because once one (usually Powerline or Hugh) makes a statement, it runs through the MOB to the NARN or vice-versa, and back around. Once it makes it back to the begining, it is then called news, and if it is not seen in the MSM, you have liberal bias. News is no longer measured by accurracy but by google hits. And these people make a lot of hits. Which is ironic, as they all fit in the non-smoking section and bar area at an Irish Pub (including their significant others).
