SO Happy & Informed
Just listened to the Happy News Podcast. It truly made me happy. Also, in general, the BBC News World Service podcast is a great source for unbiased international news. Very difficult to get in the States. Thank you!
Why does everything from the BBC never work; no matter how updated your phone is or how strong your connection? It *always* says “episode not available” and this has been consistent for at least the past year or so. Are they seriously not going to fix this? I can’t be the only one.
FAKE NEWS! PROPAGANDA
Phoniest news ever! Super liberal and twists every other story with false facts. Example: Claimed Jan 6 invasion of Capital was "deadly." For who? The tiny "scary" woman the security guard shot and killed unnecessarily. NO ONE ELSE was killed. A few people had heart attacks or stroke and died. The guy who the Fake News media claimed was bashed over the head actually never got hit but drove home and tweeted about the day. His brother said he later died in his own home of natural causes.
