Worth listening to
It’s always worth hearing Tim and his guests perspectives. Tim’s interview style can be both compassionate and warmly interrogative depending on what’s needed and I appreciate that balance.
Ups and downs.
The reporting is incredibly bias in regards to political topics the host of the show (Tim) is very clearly far left to the point where he encourages the shunning of those who disagree with him going as far as to suggest silencing alternative opinions. In saying this however, the interviews are quality and the overall reporting is strong and interesting.
Fantastic local news
Great source of local news. Without Halifax Examiner, our politicians and corporations would be thuggin the streets unnoticed.
