of getting up the courage to write a piece for opednews about three years ago that has lead me to being in an important and contentious race for Mayor of my small town. I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for my participation here. Thanks Rob...more later
I have been involved with OEN for almost ten years. It was not only one of the first progressive news sites it is one of the purest. Without mentioning any names, many sites which were once progressive have devolved to sensationalist news that is neither progressive or necessary to know. In their greedy quest for clicks they sink to levels that we used to associate with tabloid journalism. This includes sexual mongering, "believe it or not" news, "watch" stories and coverage of invective between politicians. It is an insult to the intelligence and our politics. OEN has resisted this trend

OEN presents a multitude of views that benefits its readers and doesn't just espouse the views of it's editors. If you are tired of the corporate media and its constant use of mass distraction, OEN is the place to go to get hard facts not only in it's op-eds, but in its links to other publications. This is what the internet is all about, free speech.
