If you haven't visited news consolidator in a while...

You are definitely missing something. Who leads with stories about Trump's sister?

1. Is this like a news aggregator, and is there a specific one for politics.

Havenít really thought about using an aggregator. Now that Iíve read some, sounds interesting and convenient.

2. Most sources are, aren't they? Yahoo, Raw Story, CNN, even DU

By virtue of what link to stories/reporting that editors/forum members deem informative. Except of course for a source's own independent reporting. Balance - Unless one only wants to read what they already agree with. Bottom line, we are only trying to capture the tiny sliver of undecideds right?

3. Definitely agree we are after a small sliver of undecided.

After reading up tonight, I am going to try something that fancies it self as a aggregator.

I too thought CNN, etc., were aggregators. Iím just wondering if some site that sees themselves as aggregating info and presenting it in a way that makes it easier to learn more about issues, might be worthwhile.

4. Same thing... consolidator/aggregator. It's like Trump has taken all the

air out. Are 50% of the stories just a balloon he threw up to distract? Hard to imagine what life would be like with a "duller" president. And would people crave the "edge of your seat" story?

Now, if we landed on the moon again no one would care. An aggregator has to have some level of drama or no one would click on it. Guess it could be "trump said Dems left the word god out " then down page, scientists find cure for Alzheimer's.
