Popularity of Wingnut Sites in Bus Plunge

Alexa is a web engine that tracks online usage. Seems the current trend is a precipitous decline in hits for "right wing" and "conservative" sites while the traffic to progressive sites is generally up.

Limbaugh - down 20% over the last 3 months
Coulter - down 16%
O'Reilly - down 40%
Drudge - down 12%
TownHall - down 25%

People finally waking up to the manipulation?

CrooksandLiars - up 16%
ThinkProgress - up 34%
AmericanProgress - up11%
Alternet - up 6%
Opednews - up 19%

Here's the truth about the difference between progressive and wingnut sites. Progressives tend to think things through, look for the truth and question authority. Wingers respond to and promulgate things that appeal to the reptilian brain stem, like fear. Stimulus and response. Quick decisions without thinking. It could be that more and more people are waking up.
