It took the Small Act
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

Thank  goodness OpEdNews functions as one outlet for free opinion about world affairs, not controlled by the 1% and their lap dogs

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.

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

OPEDNEWS presents straight facts, rather than the filtered down pseudo-news that frequently originates from one, or another, special interest.

OpEdNews is an outstanding example of how free the press should be.  It's not alternative news.  OpEdNews is an oasis of reality based news and interpretation in the wasteland of corporate media and its Money Party storylines.Michael Collins

My time on OEN has been well spent. Rob Kall has done a great job helping Americans become aware of what is really going in spite of what the corporate media tells us. The truth is here on That's why I write here.

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.

Opednews gives us a sanctuary

 A family, where we can air our views and discontents. Here we don't need to feel the futility of bailing the ocean with a teaspoon.

Thanks Rob Kall, for all that you do. I owe you.

Opednews is where you get the real thing. It's not just progressive opinion. It's the hard, cold truth, the real facts. If you don't listen to Bob Kall, if you don't read Opednews, then you don't know what the hell is happening in American you don't know what's happening to you. This is our weapon of mass instruction. Read it top to bottom or you just don't know what's going on.

I think you guys are fantastic and yeah, I read you all the time. And I appreciate the non-partisan nature of it. It's going to be more and more important to have real, critical alternative voices that aren't lined up behind a candidate.

I'm always, I'm always grateful, Rob, for the work that you do because it's so important to give people information about what's happening so that they can make decisions about their own world based on the best information."

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.
Norman Solomon Senior Fellow

I go to OpEdNews for the news and issues I can't find in corporate mainstream media – the censored voices, the real experts, the missing history, the active citizens working for a more just world. It's all there at OpEdNews.
Jeff Cohen Board Member

OpEdNews is unique in providing new reporting, opinion, discussion, and community from an independent progressive perspective.  The internet would be greatly impoverished without it.  The world would be greatly enriched if everyone would make it part of their routine.
David Swanson Campaign Coordinator 

When you realize that the darkness is beginning to turned around and that even though the light is dim we are at the beginning of a new time, and when you realize that you yourself have played a key role in defending truth and beauty, and have tried to your utmost to turn things around, it is time to celebrate. 

Congrats to for playing the role it has played, congrats first of all to Rob for his unselfish work, congrats to all the editors and writers and readers and commentors. 

It has only been a few years ago that I first got an article on  It was for me so incredible I shook with the excitement of it. Today I need to take a break from it all. But for all that I am deeply grateful for the adventure that writing for has been.
