Blogger a little worried about this “Fox Nation” thing

posted at 6:53 pm on March 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

I’m optimistic that having FNC endlessly flogging its venture on air will create a boom in new conservative web users and, in turn, a rising tide that lifts all rightblogger boats. After all, it’s got all the hallmarks of a big traffic site: (1) a famous patron, (2) heavy daily content volume, and (3) a variety of subject matter rather than one narrow niche. (See, e.g., the Huffington Post and Hot Air.) But what if instead of creating new blog readers they simply start vacuuming up existing ones — like, say, the 65 percent of HA commenters who hate my posts? Whither the blogosphere?

Seriously, though, what do you guys think of it? Portfolio and Inside Cable News note that Fox has basically abandoned the “fair and balanced” motto by launching a site this partisan. I’m impressed with the sheer amount of stuff on there but annoyed that there’s no RSS feed and underwhelmed by the layout. This site, like FNC’s main site, somehow looks a bit chintzier than CNN’s or MSNBC’s, although I’m not quite sure why. I want to say it’s because there’s too much white space, but both of its competitors have plenty of white space too. Any ideas what the problem is, web designers? Exit question: Hey, as part of the big launch, can we get FoxNews.com to stop cheaping out with that postage-stamp-sized video player they use and get a nice, roomy video player like MSNBC? You’re number one in the ratings, people. Show us the money.

I’d prefer the RNC have done this through PAC…

But seeing as how the RNC either wants to keep crawling up Obama’s butt or talk about their great plans and then pull out a cracker jack prize for proof… I’ll take what I can get these days.

It’s a start, so let it start.

blatantblue on March 30, 2009 at 6:56 PM

That sort of thinking is too similar to Democrats’ understanding of the economy. Just like the economy, if Fox Nation’s readership grows that doesn’t leave less readers for HotAir, et al. Besides, how many readers of HA only read HA?

Wouldn’t the middle between Huff. Post and Drudge be about where Obama stands?

Notorious GOP on March 30, 2009 at 6:58 PM

It still needs to work out some kinks, but it’s promising.

zembla on March 30, 2009 at 6:58 PM

Huffpo + Drudge = Right wing Huffpo complete with echo chamber. Huffington Post is a sham “community”. None of the comments represent any serious discussion and the essays/analysis is a joke. If thats what they’re trying to be, but with a right of center slant…i really wouldnt worry allah.

You know isn’t GE trying to line up for some bailout/TARP/taxpayer money? Don’t they own PMSNBC et.al?

Iblis on March 30, 2009 at 6:59 PM

I think Inside Cable News said it best: “News is supposed to chronicle what’s going on, not organize or represent a movement, be it conservative or liberal.” This Fox Nation is unseemly at best, unserious at worst.

Hopefully Andy Levy will address this in an upcoming Halftime Report.

Enrique on March 30, 2009 at 7:00 PM

Fox had the fair and balanced moniker before?

DeathToMediaHacks on March 30, 2009 at 7:01 PM

Exactly. You do realize that it takes you longer to create content than for us to consume it, don’t you? Even with many of the same topics covered at various sites, it’s interesting to get the varying perspectives on things.

Even with reading comments, I’m not going to spend 4-6 hours of my day at work just browsing HA. I need some variety at least in my blog browsing.

Janos Hunyadi on March 30, 2009 at 7:06 PM

It looks chintzier because any 13 year old could make it in HTML… or even at MySpace. It’s the lack of focus I think on the menu. Fox has too much crap flying around the screen and it’s a little difficult to locate the menu, or even know that you’re looking at the FOX site. By contrast, it’s very clear where the menus are at MSNBC and CNN, and that you’re looking at their sites.

Lehosh on March 30, 2009 at 7:06 PM

I am sure they will clean up the look in due time. They are probably testing their metrics now.

If 65% of posters hated your posts AP you’d be out on your arse because the free-market would demand it. Is there something we should know about HA? Are you closeted devotees of NPR?

The main Fox site looks like a tabloid while the other sites look like a mainstream newspaper. Fox Nation looks like USA Today.

I’m not impressed really. I’ll look into it now and then but nowhere near as much as I look in here or enter my own rantings into my own wordpress blog.

It’ll go wherever it goes. Setting it up the way they did though doesn’t seem to be an enabler to what their mission statement is.

First, AP, I think 65% is pretty high for those who don’t like your posts. It can’t be more than 55% tops. I kid, I kid. Seriously though, what I come here for, FOX will not be able to provide for the simple reason that FOX doesn’t “have” you or ED. And that is the only reason I come here, for you two.

MNDavenotPC on March 30, 2009 at 7:24 PM

I looked at their Our Purpose page. Some of the stuff on the front page has little to do with their Purpose. If they’re serious, then they should dump some of the content and get some smart guys writing and analyzing for them. I thought the caption over Koh’s picture: “Scary! Obama nominee wants one world order” was kind of dumb and would not encourage people to take Koh seriously.

All that said, as Skywise and Bishop said, I’ll take what I can get and let’s start. However, IMO they have some work to do.

INC on March 30, 2009 at 7:27 PM

It is a community that believes in the American Dream: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. One that believes being an American is an honor, as well as a great responsibility—and a wonderful adventure.

Finally, a website for people like me! I wish this site were more like that. Why can’t this site appreciate the wonderful adventure that is the American Dream? Do you not realize what an honor it is to be American? Do you not appreciate how commenting on a column by Alan Colmes makes you a better patriot?

I thought not. I knew there was something commie about this place. You’re all commies.

Of course, we do a little bit of that sort of stuff here, but I think we are usually sort of poking fun at how obsessed people are with Hollywood. Fox Nation seems to take such reporting seriously.

Punchenko on March 30, 2009 at 7:41 PM

Any ideas what the problem is, web designers?

Fox has a crappy group of web designers – always has. Probably the same group that handles their infamously lame graphics on television.

Anyway, this site suffers from inconsistent layout in the boxes that delineate topics (some link groups are horizonatal, others are vertical), and a horrid intermingling of ads and content in the right column. These two things combine make the site hard to look at. I could nit-pick it to death, but those are the major issues IMHO.

FuriousAmerican on March 30, 2009 at 7:43 PM

Partisan media is as old as the pamphleteers. So what FNC seem to be going partisan. No donk will come on anyway so what do they have to lose. Look at MSNBC.

Maybe FNC doesn’t do socialism …

I like the site.

tarpon on March 30, 2009 at 7:43 PM

My take is that they have too many links that are all the same size, too small, and too grey. There’s no clear hierarchy. They should have more larger headlines with sub-heads or teaser quotes to give you more information before you click, especially at the top of the page. And there are too many head-shots, probably too many photos full stop.

Am I hired? Anyone?

I don’t think HA will suffer – you might very well gain as the site could be a useful bridge between news sites and the blogosphere – I’m sure a lot of less web-savvy people take their first ventures online to look at news sites.

You’ll come around when you get your first link from them Allah.

EnglishMike on March 30, 2009 at 7:44 PM

This could be a good thing, and I don’t think HA will lose anybody.

But yeah, the layout is bad. Way too much overuse of the ‘thin black line’ everywhere. The layout could be a little ‘tighter’ too. Get rid of some of the lines and tighten everything up. Maybe use a little bit of screened out grey instead of white just everywhere.

As for FN, I like it. It looks kind of like Politico, a decent enough layout. Good content. As long as the comment section doesn’t end up full of off-topic nut jobs, I think it will work. Also, I like that you can respond directly to a comment (like at DKos or HuffPo). Why has that never been added here?

echosyst on March 30, 2009 at 7:53 PM

The FOX Nation? Hmmm, why wasn’t I told about this?!

I think this could well be good for HotAir. They obviously like HA at Fox…HA gets pretty regular plugs and Miss Malkin gets some good face time on FOX. I came to HA first and foremost because I’m a Malkin fan, and that ain’t gonna change. Plus, as mentioned above, HA has a personality and somewhat of a neighborhood conservative coffee shop feel to it…it feels comfortable here, and you provide a good amount of focused content w/o being overwhelming.

FOX Nation’s moderated comments will make it impossible to have a near real time discussion, and the huge amount of content may make it difficult to find your friends regularly. Plus the site is reacting slowly to me on this old laptop, and the link to Bill Maher’s page on there just plain broke on me.

But FOX has something over HA….a large and growing TV Network. And they have one story down in “Entertainment” linked by name to a Malkin story, and will likely also link to HA’s breaking stories and research in the future. I think this is a very good thing to help conservatives organize at the grassroots level for the coming battle with Democrats.

blatantblue on March 30, 2009 at 7:59 PM

The reason the site feels awkward is that if violates the rule of creating a webpage. People naturally read web pages in an F pattern. scanning the left hand side for stories and scanning to the right. Evidence here:

http://chrismole.co.nz/internet-marketing/people-scan-web-pages-in-an-f-shaped-pattern.html

The Fox News site has most of its content right in the middle of the webpage, with the recent posts listed on the right, typically the DEADEST of zones to average web readers. That is why its awkward and annoying.

thphilli on March 30, 2009 at 8:01 PM

AP, I love your posts and I cannot stand Ed Morrissey’s. He annoys me on a level I cannot explain.

It will depend on the quality of their writing. AP does a good job of pointing to the crux of a conflict in his posts. Most blogs will post the same handful of stories in a day, but don’t have the wit and insight that AP delivers.

dedalus on March 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

I read their purpose statement; it restates the “fair and balanced” prinicple. I don’t see any links to the RNC or CPAC donation pages. Just because the left-wing hates FOX doesn’t make it “partisan”.

AP, I love your posts and I cannot stand Ed Morrissey’s. He annoys me on a level I cannot explain.

With a following like this Allah, who need enemies liberals.

It’s all “inside baseball”, with tons of inferences and linkedy linked links to five minute vapid videos or some other crap from HuffPo or some other useless crap because AP can’t write anything that makes a point and stands on its own.

Thanks for yet another craptastic post, AP.

Terrific.

Oh come on. Read their mission statement. Its fairly obvious what it is. Just because they don’t say it outright doesn’t mean we all have to not use common sense to figure out where the site is coming from.

One thing is for sure; they’ll never link to Jihad Watch.

HA is too fun. I’ve been here so long, I can’t see anything replacing it. Even a few lefty trolls put up with abuse to hang around here. Ed and AP are both great…AP likes to set off M80s in the bathrooms sometimes, but no permanent harm done.
