Up Canada way for years Conservatives have boiled with indignation at the famous Toronto Daily Star. Referred to as the Toronto (Red) Star and said to be the left of Pravda.
Finally a number of Conservatives saw the light and just sat back and had a great belly laugh at this publication. Perhaps Conservatives in the USA should just sit back and laugh at Salon. They are a joke of course. I did read in my checking on Wikipedia, they have had money troubles in the past. Not wishing them any ill in this respect, but who knows, they may say the outrageous to beef up sales. JMHO
