Impressive Reporting

I have taken The Economist for years. The articles were well written and, surprisingly supported by data and facts. The readers on the app are very good reading material that for some find challenging. The Economist has a center right orientation which may be interpreted in the US, especially after the recent administration ‘s distortion of speaking and writing with a contemptuous attitude to experts and facts. Decades ago experience in the college market showed a steep drop in rigor over time both in textbooks, demands of professors and student interest in learning. I believe I see the results of that period of relaxation of standards in politicians and in many other college graduates in the business world. Stay the course Economst.

Hysteria, not journalism

I am a woman and the Economist’s reportage on abortion, read by a woman with breathless hysteria, was not only alarmingly biased but poorly researched and uninformed. Perhaps the reporters at the Economist should have listened to the All-In Podcast on the subject, or should have consulted the US’s actual current abortion laws, which are on par with North Korea, not the EU.
