Excellent revamp

Intelligent, pithy and accessible. Exactly what I want on my way to work!

Liberal bias

I used to like WSJ for its op-ed as well as its objective reporting, an oasis in the liberal news media. Unfortunately, there has been a significant shift recently and all the reporting resembles the bias of a liberal activist news outlet. If so, I rather switch to HuffPo and NYT.

This podcast reflects the same bias, it is very difficult to listen to if you are looking for objective and insightful analysis.

Full of ads and annoying voices

Nothing you can't get from other sources much faster, Nothing really engaging. The hosts have really annoying voices I find hard to listen to. Unsubscribed!
