    "This free website makes tables and statistical charts for current events readily accessible. The motto--"because the news should be objective, clear, and data driven"--resonates with every entry...Data are intended to be nonpartisan and to avoid political party agendas. Users will find plenty to enjoy within the site's nine categories and narrower subtopics (found under both the Explore and Navigate tabs). However, the Links section (harder to find because it is located at the bottom of the home page) is also valuable, with nearly 150 agencies and organizations listed, complete with URL, subject tag, and overall description." - From Choice review
