Looking for recommendations for a news source with as many of these attributes as possible:
* Explicitly left-leaning
* Covers international & US domestic events.
* Not so left that every article is about how some incremental gains don't go far enough.
* Not high energy/emotionally intense (like, I have my own emotions to contend with without also having to parse the authors').
* A weekly roundup format?
* Able to link other people to it.
* Not every piece is 10,000 words long.
