I keep clicking on this site from my search engine. It has a paywall and I just don't want to waste my time backing out of the paywall. So the site is OK I just want to stop wasting my time with their paywall.

The best way to control the dialogue is to also control the press. No where in the Washington Post has it been released that Bezos has also received 6 billion dollars from the CIA. That's illegal.

Washington Post was founded in 1877 in Washington D.C. They have been reporting the NEWS to the country for over a hundred years now, a very long time. Of course, as with all news stations, carry some bias towards specific situations, and as with all media report on the situations they want to impress on society. Overall the news facts are mostly reliable and current.

They lie through their teeth. If you like to be mislead by all means read The Washington Post

Usually, great reporting from journalists who write well and use evidence-based methods.  Sometimes, journalists don't use facts because they may be reporting beliefs or opinions, which can be good in that context because it shows cultural and social beliefs.  Sometimes, I am frustrated that the Post uses sub-par reporting, like cases where young journalists speak about a subject in poor writing with little knowledge that reads like a bad blog post.  As an old millennial or young gen-x, I appreciate different perspectives, but I don't believe all opinions and views should be written about or published in an admired newspaper when those views and opinions don't add substance to a conversation or engage a reader.

Safe to Browse, even for kids of all ages. This is a very popular news website. This is the best site for unbiased political news. I trust this website, but I might not agree with every article they have. Like any website, take what they say with a grain of salt, and do you research. I do find this to be an excellent unbiased news source on the internet.

A horribly biased publication in the realm of politics, repeated lies and misleading claims about candidates, lack of journalistic integrity.  Overall, a fairly poor publication for getting news.

A solid news source, great site layout. Still feels like a newspaper, and unlike some, doesn't spam users with ads.

I don't believe in red-flagging a site because of its content. The Washington Post is safe to visit for your computer, of course, and is thus green-lit. However, there are much better places to go for news than this site. It becomes increasingly apparent that the Washington Post has no intent to hide their blatant establishment bias. The fixation their entire editorial board has with the Bernie Sanders campaign is unhealthy, at best. Multiple times a day, or even hourly, the Washington Post runs a hit piece on Sanders' campaign. Media coverage as a whole is pathetic in the Untied States, from a journalistic-morality view, and the Washington Post seems to breed on misinformation and bias. With each passing day they become less of a news outlet and more of an establishment propaganda machine. It rivals Fox in its lack of professionalism. The Washington Post is easily one of the least productive media outlets the United States has at the national level. Okay. Rant over. Go home.

Biased mainstream media website that purposely rips on things that their opinions adjust to. Reports have shown that they once released a double-digit number of NEGATIVE articles about a certain Democratic candidate in attempt to curve the people and their opinions.

Employs people like Caitlin Dewey to "interview" people and post pre-written hit pieces instead.

When following a link to this site, there's a pop-up covering all the content that REQUIRES and email to make it disappear so that they can send you spam. Very sleazy behavior.

Excellent news source with high emphasis on journalistic standards and investigative reporting.  Rated cautious for children because news accounts can contain material unsuitable for some children.

Slight left wing bias, and some analytics and tracking from scorecardresearch and effectivemeasure. I only count 2 XSS attempts, which is pretty good. Images load without javascript enabled, and the site is generally clean. One of the only news sites with a Client-Server TLS certificate, however, so kudos for security. As long as you take into account the bias, you're all set for some reliable news.

Pretty reasonable news source. They also use SSL for their whole domain, which is a huge + for security!
