“Opinionated was created to give readers some of the best political and social commentary from the right, middle and left of the political spectrum in one place, with no other distractions. Amazon’s Kindle platform is the perfect vehicle for publishing a magazine like Opinionated — fast, easy and very efficient. TMS provides the weekly content and Amazon formats, posts and distributes it electronically.”
