News / Alternative /

This category is designated for sites that include news from perspectives which get less attention in the mainstream media. In this instance, "alternative" is used in a broad sense, as encompassing diverse perspectives outside of the mainstream views and analysis that dominate journalism and the media. (Although open to a variety of viewpoints, sites that promote extreme intolerance or violence or are otherwise deemed inappropriate will not be included within this category.)
