The Washington Post is proud to provide readers a full-spectrum of opinions. We have deep benches of writers on both sides of the aisle — though you can expect even those who tend left or right to regularly challenge the party line and offer unexpected takes. This page features our left-leaning voices, along with left-leaning commentary from other publications, to give a snapshot of what commentators with liberal tendencies are talking about right now. On some days the focus may be similar to that of more conservative commentators; on other days you’ll find that the writers on our Right-Leaning Opinions page are having a completely different conversation.
