My spouse goes to Raw Story all the time...

I think they're a tabloid site, but it's her baby.

They've been unreachable all day..
Anybody got any info??

5. Seems sensationalist to me. Exaggerated headlines. Old stories not labeled as such. nt

13. I go there all the time.

Some slapdash editing, quick reads with links, sometimes-misleading headlines. But I go there all the time anyway. I still like their selection of stories, even if some are recirculated. And I've been commenting at RS forever.

4. There's a lot of Raw Story hate here on DU, but T-Bogg.

Nuff said.

at the mere mention of Raw Story.

19. Raw Story has the BEST headlines for reposting stuff on Facebook

I love to use them for that.

15. I don't hate RS. I do go there all the time. It has shortcomings. What doesn't?

They have some good stories as well.

22. I've been a T-Bogg fan for a long time.

But he went from opinion writer to editor. Sad waste of talent.

6. Their info is solid.

They have very click baity headlines, but they are not a tabloid/fake news.

10. I like them for 2 reasons. 1. I can get quick summaries of main points so I can decide whether

it's useful to read the whole article. 2. I am severely hearing impaired, and many videos are not captioned. Raw Story provides good summaries of videos, so I can follow what's going on.

11. If I lied to you and told you they went out of business, would it stop her from going there?

I'm willing to be the bad guy here, if/when she ever finds out they still exist, just say the word...
