There's some pretty interesting links, pointing to several Tor records...

You can also find a lot of information online that links to a lot of what is being said here, not sure I'd call this tabloid.

It's pretty well known that the US Government funds Tor.

Tor is not safe and secure at all. It started as a Government project developed for the US Navy. Government monitors everything on Tor. I would suggest to use a reliable and trustworthy VPN instead https://www.bestvpnrating.com/news/internet-privacy-vs-information-sold-profit

Yes Poewell that is what the article was pointing out that I put a link to.

Without getting into details, because there are quite a bit, there is also still a lot of credibility for Tor.

I personally don't use it, and I don't recommend it as the only Layer of protection. I consider for those that are more paranoid, to add it as a Layer to the VPN, connecting VPN > Tor, so that Tor goes over the VPN, which does add a nice layer, at no additional costs...
