Motley Fool has gone from a few select writers covering certain sectors to many very amateurish writers. They play the good cop and bad cop and basically say a company is good and bad at the same time It depends on who is writing the article. It seems as though they are trying to cover both sides (bull and bear) and the articles don't seem to have a very good thesis. Now news sights like Forbes, Barrons, ect., seem to be better researched even if we don't like what they are saying. Then there is Seeking Alpha which is just a bunch of bloggers who have absolutely no idea what is happening in the stock market or how it works.
At least we know the Motley Fool is not mainstream and does not move the market. The best thing to do is to not read Motley Fool. I used to and I don't anymore.
