The BS Behind the Politico’s Website Navigation

Hey there Folks!
Melvin P. Atwater here and you’re not gonna believe the big old Bag of BS I have for you today!
I’m sure a few of you will call BS on it, but it’s on the internet so it must be real! Quantum Universe and all, you know. Maybe not here and maybe not now, but somewhere, somehow.
The logic is infallible!

Welcome to another episode of ‘Navigating the BS’, where we dissect the convoluted mess that is website navigation. Today’s victim? Politico.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Politico is a great source for news, especially if you’re into politics. But have you ever tried to navigate their website? It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack, or in our case, a cow pie in a field of BS.

First off, the number of categories is mind-boggling. Congress, White House, Elections, Legal, Magazine, Foreign Affairs, 2024 Elections, State Politics & Policy, Global Politics & Policy, Policy News… and the list goes on. It’s like they’re trying to cover every possible topic under the sun. And while I appreciate the thoroughness, it’s a bit overwhelming.

Then there’s the ‘Series & More’ section. Breaking News Alerts, Podcasts, Video, The Fifty, Women Rule, Matt Wuerker Cartoons, Cartoon Carousel, POLITICO Live… I mean, come on. It’s like they’re trying to be a one-stop-shop for everything. But in reality, it’s just a confusing mess of options.

And let’s not forget about the ‘Follow Us’ section. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook… It’s like they’re desperate for followers. But here’s the thing. If your website is a maze of confusion, why would anyone want to follow you on social media?

In conclusion, Politico’s website navigation is a prime example of BS. It’s confusing, overwhelming, and frankly, a bit desperate. So, Politico, if you’re listening, maybe it’s time for a little spring cleaning. Cut the BS and make your website more user-friendly. Trust me, your readers will thank you.
