Will Rare Be Well Done?

Atlanta-based media conglomerate Cox Enterprises, Inc., whose holdings include 14 tv stations, numerous radio outlets and the flagship Atlanta Journal Constitution among its two dozen newspapers, is preparing to launch within the next few months a conservative counterpart to Internet news aggregator, the Huffington Post.

According to an online article by Creative Loafing Atlanta (www.clatl.com), Cox is searching for an editor to helm Rare, whose purported tagline is "Red is the center," as in the middle ground. Creative Loafing claims that Cox already has registered the domain name rare.us.

If Rare plans to mirror the successful HuffPo except for its place on the political spectrum, besides providing another non-paying outlet for freelance journalists to be published,  its editors are going to have to overcome any reservations about limiting the use of the words blasts, slams, shocking and smacks down in headlines.

The red-blooded "TUOL" staff can't wait for Rare to publish side-boob and wardrobe malfunction photos of Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and Elizabeth Hasselbeck.
