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 RealClearPolitics.com. 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 Forbes.com, Investopedia and RealClearPolitics.com 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"!
