The results are in! Who makes it into the top 20 this year?

Big Box media continue to suffer the wrath of the thoughtful reader. Conservatives are tuning out from the alleged mainstream channels in droves. But where are they going for their news? With so many options available, sorting the good from the bad and the downright ugly gets tricky. But fear not. We want to welcome you to one of the most popular Top 20s on the web: Liberty Nation’s Top 20 Conservative News Sites to read in 2024.

For the last five years, LN has generated a wildly successful list of news sites conservative folks are actually reading. Our scoreboard remains the number one DuckDuckGo search result for Top Conservative News Sites – and high on the first page of Google search.

This Top 20 is not based on Alexa rankings, nor is it just a list favored by Liberty Nation News. Our methodology involves polling conservative readers, coupled with input from Liberty Nation authors. As well, the algorithm factors in last year’s results to ensure balance and to reflect changes over time.

Unlike many lists out in the Wild West of the web, Liberty Nation’s survey considers more than just the number of hits a site receives. Without sounding too imperious, we like to say “clickbait factories” need not apply. Instead, our Top 20 represents digital newsrooms with a combination of talent, style, readability, analysis, and provocative thought.

Below, each site is listed along with a brief synopsis because we believe conservative readers are an intelligent group – where spin is unnecessary. Without further ado, we proudly present Liberty Nation’s Top 20 Conservative News Sites to Read in 2024!

TOP 20 CONSERVATIVE NEWS SITES

# 1  The Federalist – TheFederalist.com
Once again, for the fourth year running, The Federalist claims the top spot, proving it remains a powerhouse of conservative thought. With superb writers, this site is a bastion of depth, breadth, and analysis. If you’re looking for rational and logical refutations of the leftist worldview, this is an excellent place to start.

# 2  Just the News – JustTheNews.com
Maintaining its number two position for the second year running, award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon’s Just the News continues to impress. Still a relative newcomer, this site has excellent reporting, superb coverage, and a fast-growing media presence – all in a tidy format that is up-to-date and easy to navigate.

# 3  Liberty Nation – LibertyNation.com
Liberty Nation offers original conservative content not found elsewhere by employing a bodacious, entertaining, and informative writing style along with a full multi-media site, expanding its offerings to an extensive array of high-quality videos, podcasts, a 24-hour Roku TV experience, and a nationally syndicated radio show. 

# 4  New York Post – NYPost.com
Enjoying its second year in the top 20, the New York Post is busy breaking stories and delivering its usual brand of quirky and unique analysis. Fresh off the heels of breaking the Hunter Biden laptop story, the Post continues to distinguish itself as a bastion of free speech.

# 5  Breitbart – Breitbart.com
Breitbart is one of the major portals for all things political and cultural. It has built a well-earned reputation for its bold style and out-of-the-box conservative/libertarian thought and is the flagship of in-your-face conservative commentary. Breitbart pulls few punches, earning it the eternal contempt of the left – which its writers and editors consider a badge of honor, no doubt.

# 6 Epoch Times – TheEpochTimes.com
This is the fourth time Epoch has made the list and it is steadily working its way up the ladder. It comes with considerable original reporting on US politics, China, and business, and delivers the whole package: breaking news, analysis, opinion, and some exclusive shows.

# 7  The Gateway Pundit – TheGatewayPundit.com
Jumping five slots this year, Gateway Pundit is cementing its reputation as a top news source and has a well-earned reputation for offering fresh angles on old news and unveiling stories hard, if not impossible, to find elsewhere. It’s a go-to site that has maintained its loyal and growing readership.

# 8  American Thinker – AmericanThinker.com
With no-holds-barred deep dives into timely topics of national security, diplomacy, economic policy, and more, American Thinker has become a staple for those who want more than just surface-level coverage of stories important to conservatives.

# 9  X – X.com
For the first time ever, X (formerly Twitter) makes the top 20. Also notable is that this is the first occasion any social media platform has been voted to appear. Since Elon Musk took over, conservative users have been flocking to see whether the free-speech hype lives up to reality. So far, it seems all systems are go.

# 10  The Washington Examiner – WashingtonExaminer.com
Hard-hitting news and commentary with a distinctly conservative slant, The Washington Examiner is an easy-to-navigate site; it offers print and digital editions that have become a staple for conservative readers.

# 11  The Washington Times – WashingtonTimes.com
A tried-and-true lifeline for the die-hard conservative living in and around Washington, DC, the Times has rightly been recognized as a stalwart of contrarian opinion coupled with solid journalism. Its slogan says it all: “Reliable reporting, the right opinion.” The Times always manages to deliver.

# 12  The Daily Wire – DailyWire.com
The brainchild of Jeremy Boreing and Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire has broken the mold for what a conservative media organization can do. From creating its own feature films to launching a child-friendly channel, the Wire team has brought top creatives and thinkers like Jordan Peterson into its fold. Expect huge things over the next couple of years.

# 13  The American Spectator – Spectator.org
A long-time leader in conservative thought, The American Spectator offers content that is at once strikingly original, thought-provoking, plain-spoken, and often satirical. Conservative readers continue to applaud the Spectator for its readability and high-quality content.

# 14  Townhall – TownHall.com
Townhall carries a wide variety of content from notable free-market figures and is considered a must for conservative news junkies seeking reliable coverage of the big issues. Most notable are its exclusive columns by some of the most well-known thinkers in the political field today.

# 15  Reason – Reason.com
Reason magazine started publishing news about and for “free minds and free markets” over 50 years ago and is still at it. Many enthusiastic readers rate it as perhaps the best place for pro-liberty long-form journalism. Unabashedly libertarian, Reason is for the hard-core fan of freedom.  

# 16  PJ MediaPJMedia.com
This site delivers fun and fresh reporting in an easy-to-digest format. In a few minutes, you have sound bite data for the cocktail party circuit, facts and figures for the more in-depth reader, and even some exclusive podcasts and video productions.

# 17  The Washington Free Beacon – FreeBeacon.com
Blessed with a talent for breaking big stories and going after exclusives, the Beacon is proving again and again that it is a force to be reckoned with in modern media. The site is easy to navigate and full of top-notch analysis and wicked satire.

# 18  NewsBusters (MRC) – NewsBusters.org
Newsbusters helps separate the genuine from the push-polled in our time of media manipulation and Astro-turfing the news. A project of the Media Research Center, Newsbusters approaches the big box media with skepticism and irreverence backed up by a stellar research team.

# 19  Daily Caller – DailyCaller.com
The Caller has a solid reputation in conservative circles. While much of the front-page real estate is similar to what you might find on other sites, digging further produces real gold in terms of innovative reporting from bright thinkers and original shows that both entertain and inform.

# 20  New American TheNewAmerican.com
The New American is an outfit that seems to have it all: articles, TV, podcasts, print magazine, daily updates, and a stable of talented writers. Beyond this, many conservatives find value in its exclusive Freedom Index that scores politicians on their individual adherence to the Constitution. Fascinating content.

* The Washington Times, Townhall, and The American Spectator have a limit to the number of free articles you can read before requiring a subscription. Epoch Times requires a free log-in to read the bulk of its articles. The Washington Examiner has a subscription option that allows you to access archives and magazine content.
