Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

ABC News is now podcasting some of their content:

ABC News is now offering podcast versions of "Good Morning America," "Nightline" and other programs via ABC News.com. The network is also creating several podcast-only shows. One, "The AfterNote," offers political commentary every evening and builds on "The Note," the network's morning newsletter. It also plans to deliver four one-hour podcast exclusives, including "Real Life Desperate Housewives with ABC's John Stossel" and "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith--The End of an Era."

And MSNBC isn't far behind:

For its part, NBC plans to start podcasting hourly news updates from select cable and network programs in June. The podcasts will include highlights from prime time shows, including MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews" and "Countdown with Keith Olbermann." They'll feature business, political and technology headlines from MSNBC.com too, the company said.

Segments from "Today" and "NBC Nightly News" and programs created exclusively for podcast are on tap as well, the network said.

NPR has been podcasting their content for months now, which leads me to the following conclusion - liberal media is far more in tune to the tech world than conservative media. Case in point, Fox News hasn't shown any initiative toward digital content as far as I know (although they are at least available on XM and Sirius satellite radio, which is a plus). The Wall Street Journal has a daily radio show, but it is only available through services such as Audible.com, a pay service. The National Review Online has a semi-regular podcast done by John Derbyshire called Derb Radio, but it's not consistently linked, and it has no RSS feed.

See a pattern here? I do, and, for a media consumer who prefers to get his news from the right side of the fence, it's not a pleasant one.
