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.

Five years ago, the author pointed out to what occurred after the North Korean authorities released three convicted US citizens (46-year-old Kenneth Bae, 24-year-old Matthew Todd Miller and 56-year-old Jeffrey E. Fowle), who were all considered “innocent victims of the regime.” Kenneth Bae, during his visit to an orphanage, took several compromising pictures illustrating what awful conditions the children live in; Matthew Miller wanted to be...

The type of repression China imposed on Tibet and Muslim regions could be repeated in Hong Kong. There is absolutely nothing any of the world’s powers can do about it. China will then turn its attention to ‘renegade province’ Taiwan.

We reported  back in July that PG&E had known for years that hundreds of miles of high-voltage lines running in high-risk fire areas were at risk of failing and sparking a fire. And instead of acting swiftly to make the necessary upgrades, it appears the company routinely failed to identify the infrastructure most in need of maintenance. As we plumb these depths of incompetence at PG&E, another example has emerged that truly shows off...

Authored by Jessica Prol Smith, op-ed via USAToday.com, After internal challenges with discrimination, the Southern Poverty Law Center can't call itself an arbiter of justice. I’ll never forget the moment I learned we were on lockdown. It was Aug.15, 2012. My frustration mingled with fear. Trapped on the sixth floor, we knew someone had been shot. We knew we couldn’t leave yet. We knew little else. While I was missing lunch, a crime scene...
