This site should be concentrating on music but instead it has a lot of political talk. And it's even biased. So I advice people reading it to not pay attention on such topics. And countrary to what the previous guy said, DO NOT USE PrivDog. Why? Because PrivDog is software by Adtrustmedia which will collect information about your online activities. So if you use it, you literally give-out your privacy...
Rolling Stone is a long running music publication who reports on the trends of mainstream music. The publication has incredible bias towards pop music and any users' critical comments towards certain musicians or singers are removed.
Safe to browse and will not harm your PC. Negative ratings are from the usual types that hate truth or free speech or simply disagree so they voice their opinion against the site. Very common in WOT these days. All the negative ones do is show their character and cause people to ignore their comments.
Reduced privacy trackers in the last 2 years from 22 to 9.
Has articles which refer to certain groups as "the stupid" which would qualify as hate speech had it not been referring to white people. (http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/donald-trump-just-stopped-being-funny-20150821?page=3)
Removed label for 'Privacy risks' as a result. Added label for 'Hate, discrimination'. Added label for 'Ads / pop-ups' for subscription popup.
I've been a Rolling Stone subscriber in the past and always seem to purchase the latest issue any time I'm in an airport. The website (and Twitter feed) is equally as impressive. I check frequently, mainly for updates on new music I might not know about.
Rolling Stone's official website, dedicated to review music and stuff like that. However, I do have a problem with this website. I'm using PrivDog and it found 22 privacy threats on the homepage, which is the most I've ever seen. I'd recommend you using something like PrivDog or NoScript if you're gonna visit this website.
But apart from the privacy risks it's safe.
