Informative & entertaining

I like the Texas centered stories. I think they maintain a pretty good balance. I don’t call myself liberal or conservative. I think both sides are over the top on different things!
Just like reading my Texas Monthly, I’m not interested in every story, but over all they do a lot of good work! I enjoy the program. Great to have the podcast when I’m out on the road.

80% left side of the news

I’m looking for Texas news that is center and not always leaning to the left side of the political side.

Very slanted

They should call this program “The Leftist Standard,” as they seem to present only one side of any issue. Hardly surprising, given that it’s a production of KUT and Houston Public Media, but not representative of the outlook of most Texans.
