Some noteworthy tidbits if you don't want to read the linked article:
Around 10% of Republicans say they trust what the media reports. That’s a big problem.
One right-leaning subscriber urged me recently to think hard about who we’re reaching and offered up a bit of skepticism I’m sure is shared by many other conservatives:
“Are we reaching out to expand our baseline of readers and spark healthy discussion? Or are we going to turn on those readers in the end like CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC and even Fox News in some cases do?”

I'll read through the article, but I've read enough and know enough about Christian Mader to also be suspect of what he writes and reports.
Unfortunately, both from the Right and the Left (like Mader), ideology has spilled all over into what should be straight forward news reporting of facts so the reader can make up a well informed opinion about the situation being reported.
And no, I don't think outlets like Q are any more credible than "The Current", aka the attempted successor of the Lafayette so-called "Independent". That now irrelevant paper had opinion and personal ideology spilled into about every page except its ads.
Christian definitely leans way left of the average Joe from Lafayette. I will disagree with your comparisons to the Independent. While a spiritual successor that filled the vacuum left by the Independent's departure, The Current is definitely not the tabloid hit-piece that the Independent became.
I'd highly suggest everyone in Lafayette add TheCurrent to their local news rolodex. If you want to avoid opinion and personal ideology, stick to the articles labeled as "News + Notes."
