    BINGO!

    I love the paradigm of the RW news sites. Slung around stories from ONE trash site to the other. Sites that have less seniority than the OBAMA PRESIDENCY, and that EXCEPT for a portion of the WINGERS, no one has heard of. Except, now, for BREITBART which is as phony as Martian 3 dollar bill.

    What's the old computing line...

    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.
    Yep, it's right in their mission statement. They don't hide. Although THEIR term is 'progressive' not Lefty.

    It's 'aggregated'. One stop 'PROGRESSIVE' news shopping, so to speak. (AND because, frankly, I don't have the thousands of dollars for a years subscriptions to many of their sources held behind PAYWALLS).

    No one is asking you to spend 'thousands of dollars'.

    The links to the original news stories are within the raw story articles, I've been clicking on the links to get to the original material.

    So why don't you post the stories in raw story from the REAL news sources, when the original source is available at no cost?

    The left has doubled down on using this site as a source.

    The stories they cover are recycled distortions of actual news.

    Nothing but trash.

    From the horses mouth! Here is their mission statement (with some self promotion--duh).. They do NOT obfuscate who they are (and NEITHER DO I). Wanna write and bitch at them about who and what they do, their address is also included...

    Beats the shit out of a LIE like "Fair and Balanced", doesn't it??

    Mr. mtm,

    It's been my experience they don't write their own article, but rather, paraphrase news form other sources, leaving out bits of those articles that don't support their political bent.

    It is LEFT. It doesn't lean. It is however, a news aggregator, though they are writing more and more of their own material. THEY RELY HEAVILY ON...

    NYT, WAPO, REUTERS, POLITICAL, THE HILL, LA TIMES, THE GUARDIAN. All very real, very established NEWS SOURCES. They pick up a lot of local news CHANNELS and newspapers so you can find out that some GOP hotshot is arrested for banging his daughter or some 'boy' or carries his gun into a building he's not supposed to or beats the shit out of his wife or or or. Nothing fucking fake about Raw Story or the sources they cull from except in the minds of TRUMP and is idiot followers.

    Calling something fake, doesn't make it so!
