A helpful daily update

Find the middle NPR

I've listened to this podcast for about 6 weeks. Initially, it provided a decent perspective, but anymore it is non-stop doom and gloom with zero balance. There are so many positive efforts going on around the globe but NPR seems to miss that (as does 99% of the media). It's no wonder Americans are tuning out. American journalism in general needs a major reality check on their profession. And when did NPR get such a left leaning bias. I figured NPR would keep to the middle but I was way wrong. Finally, are all NPR hosts like this one? Kelly McEvers tone and mood is off the charts dramatic. Every other sentence ends with such an accusatory flare that it's beyond annoying. This podcast went from providing information to just trying to freak people out. Someone please send them an azimuth check.

Excellent Information and Reporting

Very informative and helpful. I hope you will continue reporting as lockdowns are lifted and America reopens. Minorities and the elderly will bare the brunt of the shortcuts being taken, and without accurate reporting they will be marginalized and forgotten.
