    "In this time of a turbulent political environment, and "fake news," we all need a great research website which presents the facts in a nonpartisan way. Enter factcheck.org! I really like this site a lot - anytime I read or hear something in the news that just doesn't sound right, or I want more info on, factcheck is my first stop to find out the truth. The articles are informative and easy to understand. I have told so many friends and family members about this site. Some are more receptive than others, but hey at least I tried! Factcheck as become one of my favorite sites on the internet... I love debunking stuff on facebook by posting one of their links!"

    "I love reading articles on my tablet, but there's only so much Buzzfeed and US Weekly I can stand before my brain turns to jelly. I want great journalism and fantastic writing available in a convenient and easy-to-read format. That's why I love The New Yorker App, which puts all the great writing of this venerable publication in the palm of your hand. On the train, waiting for a meeting or appointment, or a lazy day at home -- it's my go-to entertainment. "

    "I found Bloomberg to not be very user friendly and not such a great source for well written articles, even though it has lots of articles on the site. It felt very much like an amature was presenting the articles in a very clumsy, haphazard way. I think I will look elsewhere for a better fit."
