Reddit “Politics” is a Left Wing Cesspool
You would think that if you went to Reddit Politics you’d find a middle of the road exchange of political stories from both sides but you’d be wrong. Reddit “Politics” is almost completely left wing.
News sources linked at Reddit Politics on a regular basis include BuzzFeed, Mother Jones, Salon, Think Progress, VOX, The Atlantic, MSNBC, The New Republic, Politico, The Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, Slate and others.
It’s a veritable who’s who of liberal progressive media.
Reddit can do whatever it wants but it’s dishonest to label such a forum as “politics.”
At the time of this writing, their “top” posts feature negative stories about Republicans almost exclusively and that’s the rule, not the exception.
This is newsworthy because of what Andrew Breitbart always said about politics being down stream from culture. I’m sure the people who post stories at Reddit Politics as well as the site moderators see nothing wrong with this.
To progressives, the 99.9% of news outlets which favor Democrats are “fair” while FOX News is viewed as having a conservative agenda. Funny how that works.
Maybe Reddit “Politics” should change its name.
Just a thought.
