    Not familiar with them. The sensational way in which some people share what they say has given me an overall negative impression of them.

    If I ever wanted to judge them, I'd give them a closer look without the filter of forum posters.

    But I don't care enough to check them out now.
    Thanks from boontito

    Rate them.
    Mr. mtm1963,

    Like every source you have to view the information they present with perspective. They make no bones that they are lefties, and write stories from a leftist viewpoint.

    RawStory

    Edit-

    Am I mistaken that Raw Story is a clearing house site for posting stories from other sources?

    Is the bulk of their content from other news sources?

    This story:
    Trump?s Russia ties blown out of proportion, Clinton ally says

    Trump’s Russia ties blown out of proportion, Clinton ally says

    is from the International Business times.

    A story on Tillerson was from Reuters.
    Yes they are predominantly an aggregator. They also originate more of their own now. I post MOST that come from other MSM sources, including stuff like Politico, the Hill, NYT, Reuters. (REAL news sources)

    Though I haven't looked at Drudge in a couple of years, maybe they CONNECT to BREITBART or the Daily Caller or other the myriad of RW trash sites, they used to connect more CONSERVATIVES wing as well as mainstream sources. Maybe they have gone to the dark side. Think of them as the original 'MODEL" for RawStory.

    RAW STORY uses--local newspapers and TV affiliates, cable/network NEWS sources. They use the NY Times, WASH Post, USA Today, Politico, the Hill, REUTERS, Wall Street Journal, Military Time, et al.

    Whoever put up this sillyass 'poll' doesn't WANT to get it. You're only pissed off because WE have one now. Their MISSION STATEMENT is not coy nor am I. Raw Story puts up stories from a progressive point of view. And they have driven many stories to the front pages before they were front page stories.
    Settle down, take a deep breath ------- this thread is about RS not Drudge.
    However - FTR I rarely see Drudge used here but frequently see Raw Story.

    Did you miss this post

    I choose to go to the original story for the information
    as I've mentioned a few times when stories have been presented here from RS.

    I can't decide to vote Failing, or they are great.

    The site is bullshit, but I have enjoyed LMFAO at cpicture's two dozen threads from there that have been proven to be bullshit lies.

    So... why don't you post the stories from the REAL news sources?

    Poor. Aggregator with sensationalist (and often misleading) headlines. On the rare occasions I read content from there, I follow up with the original source. And often find inconsistencies.

    Rush and FOX. They must be so proud! Look at what they did to 'journalism'. FOX is a joke. FOX, cutting through the hype, went to the courts to fight for the ability to LIE! That's the short version--of course many many many legal steps inbetween. But that's the crux. You are not compelled to tell the truth, what's more you may FIRE AN EMPLOYEE who will not lie for you. And they DID!

    Raw Story? Who cares? There are many outlets that are just op-ed sites: Prison Planet; Global Research; Information Clearing House; Breitbart; Whale.to & a host of other click bait sites.

    Does anyone with a brain actually take their shit seriously?
