Too many folks who are politically progressive wind up losing arguments with others. That’s not because these progressives are wrong, but simply because they’re not up-to-date enough to counter the latest falsehoods. After all, we’re not old, uneducated, unemployed folks with nothing better to do than park ourselves in front of right-wing television channels all day. We’re mobile, damn it!
That mobility due to work and social lives can keep progressives out-of-the-loop on current political news, however, and can leave us subject to unfinished arguments with Fox fans and other fools.
Thankfully, though, there are many mobile applications we can use to keep us up-to-date on political issues, and that can let us keep the facts straight with just a tap on our smartphones.
Here are five recommended for politically progressive use. Share these apps (and this article) with your progressive friends. And if you know of other relevant apps, please note them in the comments below.
