As media ‘analysis,’ too predictable

This is my weekly dose of progressive guiltmongering, my counterpoint to Ben Shapiro. I spent decades in metro journalism so I like to keep up with media issues. As media analysis goes Gladstone & Garfield don’t make an effort to be reasoned or balanced so it’s entirely too predictable to be very interesting. I keep unsubscribing and coming back hoping for a little more political nuance and texture, but I’m always disappointed. Get out of your bubbles, Bob and Brooke.

Brilliant!

On the Media is brilliantly produced, well researched and delivered by tough as nails journalists who work diligently to make sure that all Americans (as well as the rest of the world) have access to “informed reporting”.
This show is world class journalism that works very hard, and succeeds, in providing all sides of issues. They will call themselves out when a mistake is made, and the passion to make sure information is accurate and current is evident in every show.
