Have a read and if that doesn't answer your request for elaboration I'll get back to you.

Thanks for the reply. I see where you're coming from. I originally thought you were suggesting that there was some higher power on RTH ordering the tone or opinions on various issues.
Your observations largely seem correct - many folks who comment on RTH seem to share similar views on urban issues. The main difference in my mind is that they all previously felt the way they do about urban issues and are happy to have found a local outlet with a similar slant.
I'm not aware of anyone who will go and vote based on what they read on RTH. However I am aware of many people who will go and vote based solely on who the Spec tells them to vote for. Maybe I'm a little off base, but I think there is a big difference between the two. Granted, you can't really blame the Spec or any other outlet if people choose to treat it as dogma. Maybe in 30 years RTH will have the same problem??
