Hi Caitlin, as one of those voices who habitually screams into the abyss (about Britain and Europe mainly,) and I very much appreciate Russia Today coverage of stories that will simply be blanked by mainstream news. I’d certainly go with them if asked.
Over the years since I started blogging in 2002 I’ve had a couple of writing gigs with op — ed sites that were prepared to publish controversial, anti — establishment, off-message points of view, but they had the life squeezed out of them by Google’s rigging of search results listings to marginalise sites that did not conform to the politically correct narrative.
I often come to Medium with the intention of posting something, then look at all the drivel from self styles self-help gurus and life coaches in my news feed and think “Oh FFS, what’s the point.”
