BBC - AKA British Broadcasting Corporation.
I can cite any amount of reasons, but I won't clutter the thread up with them.

I don't know if you know this but many in the US consider the BBC to be better source of news than the major US networks, but then again so is Al Jazeera. Hell at least Al Jazeera's bias is obvious.

Al Jazeera can be pretty good on some things. (They tend to be pretty frank about Arab politics.)

I'd be curious to know what this site did to get on the black list; I haven't been over there in quite some time.

And as much as hate to admit it, JPFO can tip a little too much towards the GOA line of thinking/behavior.

Overall, if you get away from the emotional initial reactions to specific bills, laws, regulations/resolutions, etc., etc., JPFO can be a HUGE resource of information. But on occasion, they can be as reactionary as some of the GOA nutballs. I MUCH prefer getting my firearms news and information from the NRA. After all, at least they research their information rather than just echoing what someone else has spouted - regardless of its accuracy.

I would put JPFO in a category of information resource, rather than a NEWS carrier. If you get NEWS from JPFO, you SHOULD VERIFY it through other sources before trusting it. Their RESEARCHED information is first-rate, just beware if it's something new coming out.

You missed the fact that they have internally self destructed over the past few years? That they now operate on your basic stalinist purge basis? How they have roaming groups of what are essentially cultists who search out anything negative, or even slightly less than positive about them all over the internet, and then personally attack anyone associated with it?
That's too bad. I went to an Appleseed clinic a few years ago, learned a lot about position shooting. I had thought about going to another one to get my Rifleman patch.

Completely. I pretty much stick to reading the same sites, so if it isn't on one of them or doesn't catch my attention, chances are I will miss it entirely.
