Take a look at this mailing list, for instance. What sort of
publications do you see people post and discuss? Items most often
posted here are articles from bourgeois newspapers (sometimes because
they are useful, other times because they are objects of criticism).
Then, broad left publications, publications that fall into C, D, E,
F, G, and H that I mentioned, some of which are indeed academic.
Rarely do I see people posting and discussing articles from socialist
"newspapers," except to gossip about their publishers' changing
political fortunes and lines, as in the recent thread about The
Militant's turn to bilingual publishing (which masks the
consolidation and diminution of the SWP's publications). That's the
reality that socialists should confront.
