News/Analysis for Progressives

I've put together an extensive list of RSS feeds from alternative media to help ourselves steer away from the now all-too-obvious propaganda and WaPo we're subjected to by the "reliable" mainstream media, like the Deep State Times (NYT), the Washington Post (WaPo!), the CBC, the BBC, et al. I've tried to make it a bit easier to wade through by creating some groupings for what you might be interested in. So in the "Russia/China" group, for example, I've included a bunch of media that in my experience are reliable on the upcoming wars against those countries. You will, however, find lots of news about Russia and China in other groups, and news about other places in the Russia/China group.

OTOH, you may find these categories produce too many not-terribly relevant results. This is a technical problem I've not been able to fix at this point. Feel free to explore the media in the "Newslinks," as well as all the other helpful links I've included all over the place.
