well at least its free (for 6 months) propaganda.. an no Im not a blind partisan but all news has gotten measurably more slanted on both sides. Sad thing is I grew up with that paper in the DC area and it has gone downhill.
lolNo, thank you! Don't need more propaganda up my a$$!
WP is a pretty good paper. Editiorals and opinion pieces are left-leaning (which I generally agree with, for the record) but the news coverage is accurate. I actually started paying for it this past year. Quality of journalism is notably better than the average newspaper online.
RT and Al Jazeera are government sponsored papers, def not the same as WP regardless of your political leaning.
Amazon (Owned by Bezos, who also owns WaPo) has secured a 600 million dollar contract with the CIA, which poses a potential conflict. Kate Martin, director of the Center for National Security Studies, said, "It's a serious potential conflict of interest for a major newspaper like The Washington Post to have a contractual relationship with the government and the most secret part of the government
I wouldn't trust any "fact checking" website that rates Snopes and PolitiFact "Very High" on their factual scale.
Yeah remember when we used to say that government is spying on every US citizen? What dumb delusion fucks we are.
The news reporting is still mostly accurate (often times using buzzwords and slight misrepresentations to paint a certain picture for those that don't read carefully); but the opinion/editorials are utter garbage. And the latter is increasingly becoming the highlight of the paper (and every other paper). WaPo should be treated like RT or Al Jezeera at this point. You can trust some of its news that doesn't relate to their own personal interests, and for that which does (washington / russian / middle eastern politics, respectively) assume that they are pushing an angle try to figure out what that angle is as you read.
IOW Wapo has stuff Nutzo doesn't agree with therefore it's garbage. Sheesh, I even check out the federalist and I disagree with them more times than not. And even they have complimented the WaPo in the past. The one that stands out is their reporting on Moore, which the Federalist considered solid reporting.Guess we will just have to disagree on that. I wouldn't even use it to line a bird cage.
