Flash Back Friday to a Time magazine article denouncing Daily Kos as "The most Overrated Blog" of 2009. A lot of these criticisms are amazing accurate even today!
The short piece explains that "Kos's blog has lost its mission, and its increasingly rudderless posts read like talking points from the Democratic National Committee."
Some things really never change!
The Daily Kos served a very respectable role in opposing the Bush Administration, but has essentially lost its way since then, growing ever worse. From Kos himself posting an article saying that Coal Miners deserve to die for voting for Trump(https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/12/12/1610198/-Be-happy-for-coal-miners-losing-their-health-insurance-They-re-getting-exactly-what-they-voted-for), to mass bans of Bernie Supporters, the shallow, vicious, and immature way the site is being run truly makes it a relic of another era.
Note: This account is called "dailykos". That is because I am a critic of Daily Kos and I noticed they were not smart enough to ever claim that username on this site. I thought it would be a funny way to troll them, so here we are!
