    Michael Savage, host of one of the nation's top radio talk shows, is unveiling a completely new design to his popular website today.

    His fiercely loyal "Savage Nation" listenership of an estimated 8 million a week already has come to enjoy his unique daily take on news and culture at MichaelSavage.com.

    Now, it gets better.

    "There's a reason MichaelSavage.com is the leading website among all talk-radio personalities," Savage said. "That's why I am bullish on MichaelSavage.com." [/p]

    last one for the day, and it to contains copyright so read the remaining story here.

    View his site, here

    I hope they have an rss feed with the new build!

    A note on all your news articles you're posting.

    I'm pretty sure the copyright doesn't matter as long as you're citing them. If we were to rip the information from them or the entire article than that'd be plagiarism. But as long as readers know it's their news, there shouldn't be an issue. Plus, the copyright at the bottom of every page is for the entire article, not just some random portion of it. So regardless of how much you copy, you'd be doing the same thing as quoting the entire article.

    So don't cut off the rest of the article. Or just write your own summary and cite them as a source.

    see,I was told by another mod that is was ok to do something like this, I really wish there was a sticky so that I could follow a set rule of instructions, instead of getting a hundred different ways to do it. I'm glad you brought this up, and I am sorry if I am posting it in an incorrect fashion, I apologize. Just trying to follow guidelines.

    You're more than free to quote part of an article and leave the rest to further reading, but it just seems silly to cut off part of the article for "copyrights" when the entire article is actually copyrighted (although none of this should matter if you're citing them).

    I am sourcing them, could you bring this up in the mod forums? I'd really like to have an established set of rules. I see exactly where your coming from, and I agree with you completely but I don't have the time to completely rewrite news articles most of the time, otherwise I would do so.

    This is incorrect. For example AP articles explicity state that reprinting the article is forbidden except by permission of the AP. Quoting parts of the article is generally considered ok as fair-use under copyright law. Quoting the entire article is not.

    Citations are only really relevant if you are writing an article, and represent a fact and want readers to know where you received that fact. Also if you take direct quotes, then a citation is also appropriate. Citations does not give you the right for a free-for-all to reprint the entire article verbatim.

    Though from WDN.... that place is hardly 'news' anyways. Though since they print exclusively fiction, you might argue that their work is actually more creative than regular news [​IMG]

    For most 'well written' articles taking the first paragraph should give most people a general sense of the article.

    While the site is small we don't want to be subject to frivolous lawsuits concerning copying of content from other sources

    While RightHaven has done a spectacularly poor job of this, a more savy law firm could go to town on this kind of thing legitimately.

    Sorry got mixed up. I mean WND (World Net Daily) which is hardly a 'news' site. Even as a conservative that place gives me the heebie jeebies.

    Michael Wiener is a nutball, listen to sane voices like Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes. Not some rabid, frothing gay hater.

    it's those type of "sane voices" that brought us to the state that we are in today.

    edit:why is it that whenever someone posts and article such as this there is always an attack, yet whenever there is a left leaning article, conservatives are polite and humble?

    We wouldn't let this limp dick into our country on the basis he wasn't welcome thanks to bring a hate spewing wanker. Hilariously, he ranted that it violated his first amendment rights, as if the US constitution applied worldwide. He then said he was going to sue Britain, although last I checked he had rather unsurprisingly gotten nowhere with that.

    And what kind of articles are posted written by people who are the left's equivalent of Savage?

    I'm not being 'polite' about someone like Savage just for the sake of not hurting someone's feelings. How come you get a pet lip about people's rather tame 'attacks' on GBATemp, but seem to admire and defend a guy who tells people, live on his show that they're a sodomite who should 'get AIDS and die'?
