OpEdNews is the digital equivalent of a town square, where the voices we hear from soapboxes are thoughtful, well-informed, caring and passionate. This is the way our mass media should be and aren't. When we support OpEdNews, we're nurturing a vital commons for democracy.

I think you guys do a great job. One of the issues we didn't touch upon is a situation which is becoming worse, and that is Corporate control over the media: fewer and fewer large conglomerates controlling what we see, hear or read. So if ordinary people are going to get a different point of view, a point of view which reflects the needs of the Middle Class and working families, to an increasing degree, we are going to have to go the Progressive media. You guys do a great job, and I appreciate what you do.

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
