Overall, the site is interesting, well designed and user friendly. The pages are simple to negotiate, making the content accessible even to lesser educated individuals. The purpose of the website is to enable members to communicate with one another, and to attract new people to the movement. The site provides links to news articles on other websites, the stories being connected to or involving the Tea Party. In particular, this element opens the site up to containing unreliable information. There are many news websites, all varying in degree of reliability, and by including links to these, teaparty.org is inadvertently implying that the stories are true. However, many other elements of the website seem reliable, such as the times and places of Tea Party conventions.
