Solid but coverage bias

They try but there is definitely bias in which stories they choose to cover and which stories they choose to ignore.

Gotta love Republican babies

If the entire world outside of your bubble seems to be going against you, there’s probably a reason. This is a great podcast that provides fun and well researched stories. I don’t think it’s biased because I don’t think the worlds out to get me.
