Wondering why I never heard of them before. Some of the articles look fairly good, but weirdly I've heard of practically none of the authors. Then I spotted this:
by one CJ Werleman (again, never heard of him) which deploys all the usual BS smear tactics against principled leftist anti-imperialists such as Asa Winstanley, Ali Abunimah, The Grayzone & John Pilger - reflexive opposition of the US, whitewashing crimes of official enemies in Syria, China, the former Yugoslavia, denying genocide, the US isn't all bad & besides the other guys would be worse etc etc. Reeling off all the US/UK spook lies about the Uighurs and Russia/Assad's crimes in Syria without responding to any of the points of fact exposed by the dissident journalists, which reveal the claims he repeats as baseless propaganda.
The old trick of signalling that you might be on the left but not +that+ far left - "Those guys are nutters and you can trust us to give them a good kicking", just like monbiot in the graun, limiting the extent of permissable thought.
Don't think I'll be visiting the site again if they're willing to host pap like that... Anyone else been following it?
