I don't know about other topics they cover, but when the Daily Kos gets to abortion or Planned Parenthood, you'd be hard pressed to find a worse source of information or analysis -- unless, of course, your goal is to play spin-doctor for the abortion lobby whenever a scandal comes along.
If you want a cutting-edge progressive echo chamber, though, you've definitely made a good choice.
A fabulous resource for aspiring writers, and a great comfort for progressives, liberals and even conservatives who want to increase and balance the political information we all need. As a long time member I can attest that the discussions are often lively but fair. There's a reason this site is so well known on both ends of the political spectrum.
Excellent site with left wing viewpoints to counter other mis-information sites. Not a hate site, maybe not what you like to hear if you are a right-wing leaning political individual but a truthful and good info political site for news.
