Early this week I was introduced to a relatively new site Opposing Views which, unlike many discussion platforms where unintelligible and poorly informed lines clutter the content, here we find commentary and debate where ‘expert’ is the operative term. Opposing Views does not take sides rather, it offers an intelligent platform for critical online discussion on a range of pertinent topics in a structured format that permits HTML video embedding and hyperlinks. Best of all, it’s the experts who factor in the discussion, contributing their viewpoints for you the reader to both vote for and/or, add commentary. The team at Opposing Views deserves credit for the care taken in hiring expert advocates on opposing sides of the issues discussed.
As CNET noted, Opposing Views, recently “landed a coup” on the question of, “which Presidential candidate would be better for the economy” by attracting “official representation from officers in both the McCain and Obama campaigns."
Opposing Views helps you uncover all sides of the issues you care about most … experts go head-to-head on real-life concerns, debating news and events, addressing the questions that keep you up at night. We introduce the questions, the experts present their cases (and disagree with each other), and you leave ready to make well-informed decisions and take action.
Each section is a channel, including politics, society, health, money, and religion. Our point/counter-point format gives each expert a chance to state their information and opinions on an issue. Meanwhile, the other side objects by calling out the flaws in that information, and then states their own side. Opposing Views brings together the information on the issue, the evidence on each side and their counter-points.
The hundreds of known and credible experts, opinion leaders, and advocate groups include: the Obama Campaign, the McCain campaign, the National Rifle Association (NRA), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), The Sierra Club and Amnesty International, as well as individuals who are authorities on issues of current consumer interest.
For those seeking to participate in quality debates that educate by way of AAA rated contributions, Opposing Views can provide not only polemically stimulating experiences but also, a worthy new information portal; just watch your blood pressure though.
