I don't know if this has been suggested before, it probably has, but here is my suggestion anyway. It is in regards to the news sections.
Right now, on ATS, we have Breaking Alternative News and Breaking Political News. I think these need to be revised and re-done, especially the
Breaking Alternative News. I find myself irritated with that section every time I go in to it.
Here is my problem:
Maybe I'm slow and don't understand it correctly, but to me, Breaking ALTERNATIVE News should be ALTERNATIVE News. You know, from alternative
sources. "Conspiracy", "Cover up", "Corruption" news.
Not a CNN article about some technology breakthrough. Not a FOX News article about the latest celebrity screw up or death. As much as I despise Alex
Jones, I would rather see his news articles in there than mainstream media.
So what I'm suggesting is, why can't Breaking Alternative News be for more "alternative" and "conspiracy" related topics from less mainstream
news sources? Then, the Breaking Political News section could be used for political related mainstream news articles. Then maybe a third section could
be created for everything else, i.e. science and technology, celebrities etc.
I'm not suggesting sorting through all of the news postings in Breaking Alternative News and send them to the right forum, if this system was put in
place. That would be far too much work. But I'm suggesting that it be changed.
Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
