"Original reporting"

Literally the first random article I clicked on was republished content from elsewhere.

It's a blatantly deceptive propaganda site dressed and named as if it's an established local news site. Same as homeopathic medicine being dressed up as medicine and placed next to the real stuff on the shelves.

This isn't right wing trolling, it's pointing out gross and deceptive practices. And claiming that I'm a right wing troll is all you can do at this point, because the site is blatantly deceptive and there's no way of defending it when called out.

You don't even make it into the first three pages of google for "local news bucks county pa", and the site was created this election cycle.

It's a deceptive propaganda site for which your reddit account exists to spam.

About us page lists dozens of local writers. It is not deceptive, the site is objectively and openly progressive. You are just being silly now. Just stop already. Go read a book, or go for a walk.

It's deceptive as hell. It's dressed and named as if it's an established local news source. You have to scroll to the very bottom of the page and click the about us to see any mention of being openly progressive.

That is deception. The same as homeopathic products being packaged as medicine and mixed in with it on the shelves.

Furthermore, nothing about the site or your horrible attempts at defending it demonstrate competence at any level.

It's built with a WYSIWYG editor ffs, lol.

LoL. OK guy ... You can think that, but the article is till up, as will future articles, because it is a legit, progressive news site. Have an amazing Sunday watching Fox News.

It's not a news site, buckscountybeacon is a propaganda spam site dressed up as a local news site, built with a WYSIWYG plug-in for wordpress.

Wordpress is simple enough, and a fine CMS for something like this. You don't need a WYSIWYG editor on top of that.

Nothing about this site is authentic. It's literal spam.

Are you going to just keep recycling the same comments over and over and over? You've said absolutely nothing new; you're just repeating the same few (rebutted) points ad nauseam like an argument robot.

When I keep getting responses denying it, yes. Especially from OP who began copy and pasting the same responses to me.

It's a deceptive and poorly made propaganda site dressed up like something its not, and one of the people involved is filling this thread with lies claiming it's an established local news source.

Why are you so offended someone pointed that out? What purpose does your comment serve except to whine that somebody pointed out how gross and misleading this junk site is?
