Heavy Caveat: We’re loathed to consider (TPV) “real,” because it’s mostly opinion, but it is a site that makes their opinions based on data they’ve culled. But it makes no attempt to hide its liberal slant.

From their About page [emphasis mine]:

This blog is devoted to examining issues from a liberal perspective, on factual bases and on fair analysis. This site is also deeply zealous about liberal Democratic activism. At The People’s View, we are committed to giving readers as much additional resources (mostly via links) as possible to educate as well as activate. The People’s View is also a public policy blog for reasoned debate and discussion.

The pluses:

  • TPV does provide links for further investigation

The question-marks:

  • Does TPV ignore other sources to help slant their opinions?

And even this tidbit, “deeply zealous about liberal activism,” creates not so little dissent among fellow Leftists. In 2011, TPV posted the article “A Left Wing Hierarchy,” which seemed to try to pigeonhole Obama-objectors on the Left into neat categories, complete with ‘training’ on how to handle arguments with them. Some left-leaning bloggers took exception to it.

Our initial gut-reaction is to consider suspect everything that you read at TPV. Information there is likely okay to repost and share, but be ready to suffer through the comments you’ll likely get, mostly rebuking whatever claim your shared article posits.

Copy and paste any article URL below. We'll tell you if it's real.
