OSNews, Generic OSes I know that there's a number of readers who don't like it when OSnews covers political topics, I'm one of them. These political upheavals however spell danger for operating system hobbyists and so I dedicate this article to framing the political news within the context of what we are here to read about: operating systems.

RE: Covering politics

The problem arises when editors here (and on other tech sites too, it seems) decide to use the site as their own political mouthpiece.

You're right that when this crops up it's problematic. The problem is that when someone feels strongly about something, and you have a mouthpiece, it's a big temptation to use it. We'll do our best to reign in that impulse. The other thing we'd like to do is expand the range of opinions so when the do squeak out, there's some diversity, so we'd like to recruit some new editors.
