Unflinching Exploration of Important Issues

Intelligent look at issues some (hence some negative reviews?) would rather not be discussed. The show has a progressive lens, but provides a well-balanced presentation of the facts.

Really good

I wish they would release more shows, but I can understand the time it takes to do quality investigations on each stories! Good stuff please continue! Don’t know why you would even get negative comments?
