The Daily Signal, Heritage’s news outlet, had two big wins on Tuesday.

First, Daily Signal White House correspondent Fred Lucas asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer a tough question about the administration’s commitment to Obamacare repeal. This was the first time a Daily Signal reporter has asked a question at a White House press conference.

Later that evening, in an appearance on Fox News, Sean Spicer called out The Daily Signal as an alternative to the mainstream media. “The mainstream media is not the only team in town anymore,” he told Sean Hannity.

With over 96% of journalists’ campaign donations going to liberal candidates, it’s time to balance out the mainstream media with alternative sources.

Do you think The Daily Signal is providing a good alternative to the mainstream media?

Absolutely, I think this is long over due. I love it. I read every and all Daily Signal Articles daily.

Ethel Parkes - January 27, 2017

The Daily Signal is a very valuable avenue of information

Don Glitschka - January 27, 2017

Yes. A daily “must read”.

Gerald Martin - January 27, 2017

What a wonderful change to get something from you all without you begging for money.

Robert H. Davidson - January 27, 2017

Alternative news sources should be listed so that the general public can go to them at any time for opinions. Too many nom nothing of alternative news sources thus the reasoning for providing an alternative site list these sources.

Sheri Lewis-Sorensen - January 27, 2017


Ginger Curtis - January 27, 2017

I rely on Daily Signal for up to date, accurate truth on what’s going on. Thank you.

Louis Sokowoski - January 27, 2017

Yes, a news source I can trust!

William Parker - January 27, 2017

I don’t read news issued by the liberal media. If rhe Daily Signal did not exist there would be no believable source to turn to.

Susan McHugh - January 27, 2017

It’s about time alternative media were let into the press room. The American public needs to understand what conservatism is, that it is economically and personally empowering, not a theory adopted by ‘mean people’. Reaching minds and hearts is critically important. Thank you for you well-documented research on numerous issues – I often cite your articles when communicating via social media or one-to-one with others.

Martin Mulroe - January 27, 2017

The Daily Signal has kept me well informed for the past year. I read it every day. It’s a great alternative to the mainstream media. Keep it coming.

John White - January 27, 2017

Without a doubt! Conservatives are starving for reliable information on all fronts in our struggle with liberal agendas. The Daily Signal is my most trusted source!
Thank you!

Janet Patrick - January 27, 2017

Yes, absolutely, without a doubt in my mind!!

I have read the Daily Signal for many years and still love it! To see how fast your readership has grown, tells me just how much a real, TRUSTWORTHY conservative news site was wanted and needed by so many of our fellow American citizens!

Keep up the great work Heritage!

Donna Johnson - January 27, 2017

Yes. It’s good to have a reliable source for the news.

Sheila Schaefer - January 27, 2017

Absolutely . I value the Daily Signal and no longer pay any attention to main stream media.

Donna Donaldson - January 27, 2017

Yes, The Daily Signal can be relied upon to tell the truth. The mainstream media needs to go away.

Homer S. Spradling - January 27, 2017

Read the Daily Signal every day,
Great way to stay abreast of what is going on in Washington.
Keep up the good work

Richard Batchelder - January 27, 2017

I don’t know enough about Daily Signal, but what I do know is the major print networks and especially the national TV networks of CNN, NBC, ABC & CBS are in my opinion very biased. It reminds me of what the Communists did in Russia in taking over that country. (It’s Propaganda plain and simple. They did it there and believe they can do it here.)

Ken Galica - January 27, 2017


Joanna Jones - January 27, 2017

I’ve been seeking information from sites other than what is/was considered “mainstream” for about five years. It’s required a gargantuan investment of time and effort. This administration’s inclusiveness of true journalists offers a glimmer of hope for getting to the truth and for getting the truth to those who have become pawns of a politicized press.

Nelton Hayes - January 27, 2017

I rely 95% of info I received from you, Heritage Foundation and the Judicial Watch. Fox News occasionally.(only Bill & Sean)

Lynn Crist - January 27, 2017

Love it. Don’t always get the straight scoop from some of the ‘conservative’ websites and absolutely no straight scoop from the liberal main stream media.

Paul D’Aigle - January 27, 2017

Absolutely! Keep it up. Thanks.

Albert P. Bushey - January 27, 2017

Absolutely, the Daily Signal is one of the greatest tools available to all Americans to receive truthful news and current information on our country and government.

John Humiston - January 27, 2017

The Daily Signal is awesome. Succinct, but not at the expense of necessary detail and accuracy.

BETTY MUNSON - January 27, 2017

Thank you, Heritage and Daily Signal for all you do. Glad to see you get more recognition.

Joan Cummins - January 27, 2017

Totally agree with all previous comments.
As readership grows, so will public trust.

Barbara - January 27, 2017

Yes, The Daily Signal is a source I know I can trust to tell the truth.

JERRY RATH - January 27, 2017

Keep up the good work! I trust the American people will be able to discern the best news sites to gain their information.

Nancy Fiedler - January 27, 2017

Of course the Dailey Signal is a great alternative to mainstream media. Different from some of the Main Stream, the Dailey Signal tells the TRUTH!

Carol Eggers - January 27, 2017

I like the Daily Signal. I am hoping to see it expand in the near future. I trust what I read here. Thank you for giving us an option to the liberal MSM.

Tim Craig - January 27, 2017

Keep up the great work. Heritage is a voice of reason in a sea of leftist propaganda and it is indeed comforting to know that the proven research of Heritage is being used to create the policies of the new administration.

Bill Coates - January 27, 2017

Hopefully, your questions will elicit some explanations that the mainstream media will include in their coverage. Their own questions tend to be combative and not at all enlightening.

George - January 27, 2017

Good? Yes! Far better? Without doubt

G. Allan Barnes - January 27, 2017

The Daily Signal is very important to me for info I need. Also, I reference National Review, Weekly Standard,Judicial Watch, Bill O & Hannity (Fox), ACLJ, Heritage Action, Mark Levin et al.

Russell Boggs - January 27, 2017

For a change the Daily Signal is truthful as well as accurate reporting.
Research appears to be spot on.
A pleasure to read.

Susan Blue - January 27, 2017

I rely on the Daily Signal every day. The research and reporting are clear and accurate. Along with the Family Research Council, I am kept up to date on many issues. This had an effect on my representatives when I call or email them with concerns. I also forward these two sources to others, helping to spread the word. Thank you!

Charles Paine - January 27, 2017

a news outlet that speaks to both sides of an issue rather than only speaking to the left is a good thing. the American people need to hear and understand both sides of the issue along with some informed analysis justifying the conservative side of the issue.

Kenneth W Payauys - January 27, 2017

Personally, I have read The Daily Signal since its first publication date. To me, it is an excellent source of reliable information. I have the following observations for The Daily Signal editorial staff to consider:

Ref. 1: Obama Told Us ‘Elections Have Consequences.’ Here’s One Way to Reverse His Liberal Legacy. Sen. Mike Lee / @SenMikeLee / January 17, 2017 / comments

Focus on the misleading terms in the referenced article:
“federal grant money” – 12th paragraph;
“using federal funds” – 16th paragraph.

Ref. 2: Trump Should End Government Funding of NPR’s Biased News. POLITICS Mike Gonzalez / @Gundisalvus / January 21, 2017
“links [government] funding” – 1st paragraph

There are no such things as “federal money” or “federal funds”: there are only taxpayer money or borrowed taxpayer money or fiat taxpayer money! In The Daily Signal articles, please edit written information to portray taxpayer money correctly. KWP

Dianna and Donald Morrow - January 27, 2017

Great news that Daily Signal is making a huge impact sharing honest and up to date news for America! I really enjoy your site. Hope this trend continues for you and other great conservative news sites as well.

Tracy Warren - January 27, 2017

Yes, sir! The Heritage Foundation and its Daily Signal are one of two main sources for the information I choose to read regarding national and international policy and subjects.
Thank you for your accuracy.

werner Keil - January 27, 2017

Daily Signal doing a very good job.
I would like to see more coverage on George Soros & his sons-the public need to see more on Soros & the actions he activates i.e. allegedly behind shipping professional rioters in Ferguston & allegedly behind women’s march & also allegedly owns the Democratic party.

Shirley Weaver - January 27, 2017

Keep up the good work. It is getting serious attention.

Richard Herman - January 27, 2017

My goodness. No offense, but it would not take much to do better than the MSM. However, the Daily Signal is FAR above just better; they are superior! Awesome. I’m glad to be a small part.

jack Dayley - January 27, 2017

I love the Daily Signal I get get my best news their. thanks.

Alfred Grunwell - January 27, 2017

I rely heavily upon WND to get reliable news coverage and I am very happy to see Heritage getting into the news-sharing business. When one looks at the money source for all of the “old mainstream” news outlets it is easy to see why they are all unreliable for anything other than left-wing propaganda. I wrote them all off back in the Clinton years. Welcome Daily Signal!

John F Cherry - January 28, 2017

I read and enjoy it every day.

Delvin Paul Tingwall - January 28, 2017

Read several Heritage publications every day. Keeps me current and allows me to respond to my congressman in a timely manner.

Sandra Aleman - January 28, 2017

It’s the best news site I have, and I read it every day. And no ads! I hope it gets out to more readers.

Richard Hollis - January 28, 2017

great news source, tells the truth.
keep up the good work

Sonie Thompson - January 28, 2017

The MSM has been long giving us liberal slants, and you have brought us another great source of news. My only hope for it all, is that news stops being created and just reported as it happens. Thank you!!

Eileen Rapp - January 28, 2017

This “real” news outlet is long over due. I read the Daily Signal as often as I can. I don’t read it everyday because once I start reading it I can’t put it down (like a good book). It is always spot on and talks about many subjects of importance to our Nation.
Thank you. Jim DeMint

Richard A. Davis - January 28, 2017

The Heritage’s impact on our government’s movement toward the right, is exactly what this country needs!!
God Bless The United States of America

Dean Thomas - January 28, 2017

I read Daily Signal daily, and completely ignore the extreme liberal bias of the “mainstream” media.

John Hawkins - January 28, 2017

Yes! A daily must read for me.

Richard Morgan - January 28, 2017

You are doing a great job with the daily signal. I enjoy reading it every day.

Ron Bonano - January 28, 2017

Yes ———- This would be a Major move to steer the country in the correct direction. The people of America need to start hearing the TRUTH about what is going on in their country and not some false reports coming from Liberal sources.

Ora Rae Ottmar - January 28, 2017

Daily Signal is a regular read for me. I don’t have much in funds but have been a monthly contributor to Heritage for several years. So thrilled it is finally getting the attention it deserves.

Rita Misero - January 28, 2017

Absolutely!! The word needs to get out that the mainstream media is bought and paid for by the liberals and you can’t expect to get,” the whole truth and nothing, but the truth”. From The Daily Signal” we can get the whole TRUTH.

Fred Henry - January 28, 2017

Yes. The Daily Signal is conservative voice in forest of liberal propaganda media.

Chan Bailey - January 28, 2017


Karen M Giannettino - January 28, 2017

I am far more comfortable with the Daily Signal’s news analyses than with those provided by the MSM. The MSM is unwilling to cover this or any other adminis-tration truthfully, always falling back on the Liberal lies.

Laurie Bluth - January 28, 2017

I love the Daily News. I believe I might be one of the first signups for it when it started. I rely on it to get the REAL unbiased, accurate news on the most important issues.

And yes, free news, as we have seen, really isn’t free – it belongs to those who pay for it and reports exactly what they want – referring to mainstream, of course!

janice lewis - January 28, 2017

I certainly do, I am seriously thinking of giving up my daily newspaper as all they seem to print is the negative things that they feel the liberals want to see and hear.
and Fox News is the only thing to watch on TV that gives you a glimpse of what conservatives want to see and hear.
I look forward to the Daily Signal. Thank you for a job well done.


David caraballo - January 28, 2017

Absolutely, I think this is long over due also. I read every and all Daily Signal Articles daily and I often cite your articles when communicating via social media.

Chris Erdle - January 28, 2017

Oh Yes!!
It’s been a long time coming,keep up the Great Work!!
We will support you to the Max of our resources!!

Linda G. White - January 28, 2017

Daily Signal is an excellent resource for news and politics that is not fake or misleading like the MSM.

Ray Taylor - January 28, 2017

Great move in right direction I appreciate the Daily Signal very much.

Richard Brogger - January 28, 2017

Yes, a trustworthy source.

Fletcher Robeson - January 28, 2017

Great job and especially depend on your use of facts and statistics rather than purely polls and opinion.

Albert (Alberto) Castro Jr - January 28, 2017

I absolutely believe The Daily Signal is a good alternative to the MSM. I only watch Fox News on our TV anymore. When I want news I can trust I turn to The Daily Signal, Patriot Post, CRTV ( love Levin) and Empower Texans. That way I know I get the Conservative truth and nothing but the truth. I need my Daily Signal.

Thanks y’all.

Syd Corbett - January 29, 2017

Yes indeed! The Daily Signal deals in actual factual information rather than liberal hype and spin.

William Dove - January 29, 2017

I think the subjects covered and the conservative point of view provided by the daily signal is an invaluable resource for those of us who wish to return the country to one that follows the principles of our Constitution.

Rosemary - January 29, 2017

Yes! Thank you to Sen. DeMint and the Heritage staff for helping “hold the line” for Americans.

Millie Kirschner - January 29, 2017

I read The Daly Signal every day and listen to Fox News. The only time watch Action News Philadelphia anymore is for the weather. No more spin news anymore for me.
Thanks to you for bringing us truth.

MB Ahmad - January 29, 2017

It’s great that the Daily Signal is properly reporting the necessity of the Keystone and North Dakota pipe lines and President Trumps swift executive actions to revive them.The Pipelines are vital for Americas Energy security and the people must be told the facts, and not be misinformed.

Allen Reinhart - January 29, 2017

What a breath of fresh air; I see light in America again in the darkness we have been living; although we have a long way to go. We have had little help from our past 8 -9 year predecessors who have lead this country astray. Keep up the Good work “Daily Signal and Heritage”. May blessings come upon those who follow the laws of the land our forefathers started. Many blessings to all : )

Sanford Trado - January 29, 2017

The Daily Signal is my primary source for reporting and fact based information in all areas. The conservative voice would be lost without it! Thank you Heritage Foundation!

Peggy Brooks - January 29, 2017

I do, because to have a government free from corruption, we need a press free from special interests. Like President Trump, Heritage is focusing on what is best for America, not ratings and how to profit from catering to special interests as prior administrations and candidates have done.

Carolyn Binkley - January 29, 2017

The Daily Signal offers news without slanting to their way of thinking. This is ot true with the liberal media. More people should subscribe to this news media.

Gerald Battle - January 29, 2017

Absolutely. Although it clutters up my inbox, it’s GOOD clutter, worth reading.

Johanna engel - January 29, 2017

Of course!!

Ron Wagner - January 29, 2017

Its wonderful to get the truth daily.

Marilyn Hodgell - January 29, 2017

Yes, for Daily Signal!

Steve Kitchen - January 29, 2017

I trust The Daily Signal for my news. Keep up the good work, we need you.

Dennis Eben - January 29, 2017

The Daily Signal is the only news source that I can depend on to give the true story.

P. Welch - January 29, 2017


Fantastic!! We are very excited with
Trump as our President of the USA!!

P. Welch - January 29, 2017

We are looking forward to our new
President of the USA! We are very
excited about all of his choices.

Chuck M - January 30, 2017

I am very grateful to have the Daily Signal provide the real story!

Glynnda White - January 30, 2017

YES, the Daily Signal is a good alternative for the mainstream media, it would be very nice to see something where both sides of an argument could be laid out. It would provide the reader with an intelligent view of topics at issue. Heritage could lay out its plan as well, which always ends up being the way to go. Heritage positions are always well thought through and well laid out.

Frank Detrixhe - January 30, 2017

New subscriber, great to have an alternative!

Bill Wainscott - January 30, 2017

You are filling a void by reporting honestly news that affects every citizen. Keep up the excellent work.

Judy Nunez - January 30, 2017

YES! This is a news source that I can trust along with Fox News. Other than these two, I do not trust or respect any of the other news channels or cable news. They have proven to be biased and out an out liars if it serves their purpose. They twist words to their own advantage and they don’t care who they hurt.

Joanna Faith Parrish - January 31, 2017

It is great to have trustworthy sources like the Daily Signal, World Net Daily and CBN. Thanks.

Jerry Metcalf - January 31, 2017

Yes Keep it up.

John - January 31, 2017

I read one or two articles in the Daily Signal every day. Adding that to other sources provides me the basis for a modicum of political wisdom. Thanks for the variety and the depth.

Charles Cooper - February 1, 2017

My people perish for lack of knowledge, but there is skued false knowledge, that people take for granted. Thank you for your earnest to give us Truth. I am grateful.

Steve Nielsen - February 5, 2017

It is refreshing to have a news outlet that is not hostile to all things conservative.

Bill Lawry - February 5, 2017

I’ve been a long time supporter of Heritage but haven’t been aware of TDS. Will certainly give it a look. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.
