Best News Ever

News has become an echo chamber – you listen to what you agree with, and slowly your views cement themselves into unchanging opinions constantly restrengthened by the news you choose to listen to. Fox News and CNN are great examples. TLDR gives unbiased news, presenting the facts, and not wasting time pushing an agenda. The Daily Briefing is an amazing example and to top it all, the Briefing is short and concise, presenting a thorough but short bulletin of a variety of stories from all over the world, though admittedly with a slight focus on the UK, USA, and EU, though this is understandable considering their base.

Used to be sad that this was gonna get cancelled..

Used to be really good. Took a few days off and came back the the Prince Phillip episode was so weird and cringey including the bits about the 7 day lockdown change. Really bad. (Have 5 starred all your other shows though ❤️) TLDR are generally pretty good aside from some dodgy video editing but this episode made my skin crawl😅
