Ever wondered what the top 10 songs liberal reporters listen to on Spotify? My personal favorite Ryan Reilly, reporter at Talking Points Memo’s fave is The Glee Cast recording of “Sweet Caroline”! How did I come across such raw news? The Raw Story – an online, progressive news site that focuses on stories often ignored in the mainstream media. While giving coverage to the big stories of the day, they also bring readers’ attention to policy, politics, legal and human rights stories that just wouldn’t get reported on CNN or Fox.
Founded in Cambridge, MA in 2004, Raw Story reaches more than 2 million unique readers per month and serves up more than 11.4 million pageviews. Recent focal points have included Wikileaks, the Occupy Movement, wiretapping and judicial abuse.
We wondered whether The Raw Story could compete with the mainstream media as a news source, and well, it’s got just the right amount of serious big coverage stories as well as stories that bring readers’ attention. It’s definitely news you can trust!
Having just discovered The Raw News myself thanks to our websites guru Roy, and have spent nearly an hour educating myself on stories that get ignored. Forget FOX and CNN, click onto The Raw Story, you’ll be amazed at what you’ve been missing out on!
