AlternativeNation.net vs. Pearl Jam

I've notice https://www.alternativenation.net/ seems to be "against" PJ. They tend to do unflattering stories and focus mainly on Seattle bands. What gives...? It's so weird - like this axe job on Ed's solo gig. Make it sounds like Ed is stock holder for Netjets?

  • And the comment sections always bash liberalism and any musician who is outspoken about politics who is left leaning.  All in all it isn't a site or a site comment section to take too seriously

    Don't even read that garbage.  The guy takes articles and makes them his own with click bait.  Stop wasting your time.

     If he articles them and makes them readily available on one page, that seems to be saving time to me...

    My fav is when they troll for comments on forums to find “news”
  • That site use to be amazing and now its always 1. days or week late on news 2. click bait  3. repeating their own stories  4. taking a single story and pulling out click bat on it for the next month.

    I feel like when it was mostly Brett writing articles, it was pro-Pearl Jam with lots of PJ news. It has changed a lot and is now garbage.

    Yeah unfortunately this is the case

    Back a few years ago when it was grungereport.net I used to frequent it daily but the change has been so dramatic and the overall rhetoric both in article content and comment section quality has decreased so much

    Yes! I have to stop myself from chiming in on those comment sections. I look at the site because they report on literally anything r nothing concerning PJ but they seem to use right-wing outrage as a way of getting traffic. If there are two things commenters on that sight can agree on it's that PJ's politics suck and Dave A rules. The site really is click bait garbage. LastStopOnTheWestCoastLine said:

    www.alternativenation.net/ is nothing more than the gossip column for the "grunge" scene circa National enquirer

    Hard to look away from a trainwreck, but you are right. Comment sections are awful pretty much across the board. Especially awful on the site.

    I disagree with those who think it used to be amazing... I thought it was garbage from the get go, even in the 'grunge report' days.

    I wanted to like it, but it was just so God awful. The guy running it is a terrible writer & acts like a petulant child when called out on his clickbaiting nonsense.
