I wouldn't generally see a problem with it. At a quick glance, some of the stories look a bit tabloid-y to me, so at the very least, you may get some snarky comments if you post some of that. I wouldn't really call it a "reputable" source because it appears to primarily be opinion pieces, but there's a place for things like that on this forum. Just use your discretion and post things that you think would make for a productive discussion. Some users seem to create threads merely as fodder, so as long as you're posting something from that site that would actually be of interest to users here, then that's okay by me.

The "competitor" rule mainly refers to other online forums which directly compete for our users' attention. If someone were to link to a thread on FlyerTalk, for example, it could tangibly hurt our forum if someone found their site to be more interesting than ours. News sites aren't competitors because we aren't a news site, even though some users seem to treat it as such. Our other concern with regard to this subject is users linking to their own websites or blogs. It's unacceptable to us, and indeed to most users, that someone would use this site for their own personal gain. As long as you're not affiliated with the site you're linking to, then it isn't an issue.
