The Tyee: swimming against the current (Not against Currents, just to be clear)

Published by at 5:17 pm under social media

The Tyee is an online-only, Vancouver-based leader in independent news coverage and views, reaching more than 150,000 unique visitors per month – and growing. Their goal is to get 5,000 new subscribers by June 30.

They’ve got a ways to go, but I think it’s simply a matter of getting the word out. Great content, interesting features not covered by the mainstream media, without the pandering to the lunatic fringe that you might see in publications with similar mission statements like indymedia (or would have seen if hard-core communists and anti-Semites hadn’t hijacked the site).

Best of luck, Tyee. And if you could pass a few of those 5,000 subscribers back my way, I wouldn’t complain in the least.

    The Tyee is interesting because its focus is pro-union, pro NDP, pro international socialism etc.

    If you like that kinda stuff you might sign up.

    If you have any common sense, you just laugh at the leftoids & their wishy-washy theories.

    Traitor, the tyee is also anti conservative.

    Are we now just giving up?

    Well if we’ve reached that point we might as well discuss harpers replacement.

    Lawrence cannon will get us a majority.
    in 4 years thanks to harper.

    Traitor? Zoinks!

    Yes, the Tyee is vocally left-wing, and I am a righty. So what? Not only does a free press allow the publication of alternative views, but my freedom of thought compels me to assimilate information from a wide range of media sources, most definitely including those on the left.

    Those who choose to read only those publications that fall into their ideological camp give themselves tunnel vision and leave themselves ignorant of what the other side is up to. Knowledge is a virtue.

    Besides, I like their book reviews.
