  •  RCP has also been slipping in their article lists. (8+ / 0-)

    I love densely aggregated lists of daily articles with links I can quickly scan so RCP has been on my list of frequently reviewed sites. But, over the last two years I've noticed a steady right-ward drift, from an already right-of-center average, as measured by the numbers of articles and sites most frequently linked.

    I've written to them to complain about the "red-shift" several times to no avail. So, RCP has been slipping further down my article scanning routines.

    Now that the elections are over I need to broaden my horizons some and get more diverse daily reading lists.

      •  I've discovered many worthwhile articles on RCP (0+ / 0-)

        over the years, which is one reason I took the trouble to try  to steer them back a more representative rendition of the fuller spectrum of political writing.

      There is a huge problem I see in RCP's choice of articles. They claim to provide balance, but what they do is mainstream the crazies by posting articles from  DC Examiner and Daily Caller

      This leads to false equivalencies all over the board. The right wing leaners and crazies will always tell you that any article posted by Koch Brothers paid shill Veronique de Rugy
      is equivalent and provides balance to someone like Eugene Robinson. They attempt to mainstream the crazy (DeRugy) while trying to marginalize someone rational like Robinson.

      I don't even bother with that site anymore.
