About Us

Refreshingly Independent Politics

Smerconish.com exists as a unique home base for non-ideological thinking. Here, independent viewpoints not tethered to partisan perspective are welcomed and showcased. That doesn’t mean we ignore the opinions of the Left and Right, but rather, we offer them as part of a balanced presentation. The need for such a platform in an age of polarization is obvious. Never before have we had so much choice in where we get our news and information but so few take advantage of their access to diverse perspectives. This is your ticket out of a media silo.

An Unbiased Perspective

In today’s polarized media landscape, the Smerconish.com team prides itself on our unbiased, middle-of-the-road approach to delivering the news. Today, thanks to Ad Fontes Media, we can proudly declare that we are one of the most unbiased outlets for political analysis and commentary in the country.
