Very efficient day-starter

Very intelligent and succinct way to jumpstart the day. Clearly left-leaning and bordering on biased reporting, but still my favourite way to get the essential headlines of the day.

Hyperbole and semantics

Using incorrect language to communicate the news of the day leads to hyperbolic explanations even when audio clips contradict the journalists comments. I relied on NPR for facts, not conjecture. Don’t become a Trump-puppet.

For ex: Bernie Sanders claimed he would use economic levers against the Government of Israel where as the journalist says he is going to use economic sanctions against Israel. The difference is impact on government vs. a nation state. One is against a people and one is against a government and its policy. This feeds into the rhetoric of the untruthful.

What a sad day for news in America. Unsubscribed.

I’m not re-subscribing until you fix your Planet Money problem

Whatever you’re doing, stop it and hire someone new. I’m really tired of getting inappropriate podcasts in my feed, and it really feels like Planet Money is being shoved down my throat. The planet money logo has been replacing the ‘up first’ logo regularly too even when the audio is correct.

Look, if a daily podcast is too much, then don’t offer it. I realize it’s a lot to produce. But either do it well or just don’t do it.
