RealClearPolitics - Behind the Popular Blog of Washington Conservatives

We've been reading the articles blogged by the so-called Bi-partisan RealClearPolitics that claims to be the frontrunner in presenting impartial news regarding current political events. Some of their contributors include NOM's Maggie Gallagher and other Religious based bloggers.

From their "About Us page:
RealClearPolitics (RCP) is an independent, non-partisan media company that is the trusted source for the best news, analysis and commentary. Founded in 2000 by John McIntyre and Tom Bevan, Chicago-based RealClearPolitics covers all aspects of the U.S. political process including policy, elections and government.

We have researched just a little bit and found out that this site is actually 51% owned and controlled by Forbes Media.  (Wikipiedia)

Forbes Media announced on November 7, 2007 that it had acquired a 51% stake in The founders will remain owners and management. In November, 2008, Forbes President and CEO Steve Forbes sent a memo directing that the company's online brands, including, Investopedia and be combined. RealClearPolitics also owns RealClearMarkets, RealClearWorld and RealClearSports.  RealClearMarkets and RealClearSports were launched in November 2007. RealClearWorld, the international news and politics site, was launched in August 2008. RealClearScience and RealClearReligion launched in October 2010.
  It seems that a lot of things are NOT "RealClear"!
