Misspelling from NYT?

Why is the word "Political" in the podcast logo spelled "Politcal?" Is there some pun I'm missing, or is some editor asleep at the wheel? Gud kontent thow.

OK, but somewhat bland

The content is good, but the reporters involved are pretty bland and the show feels quite hurried. So I don't really get a sense of which kind of perspective each of them brings.

Oh, and could the host PLEASE stop his heavy breathing directly into the microphone. Thanks.

They are completely out of touch with the American people!

This past weekend more than 1000 cities around the world took to the streets in protest of our corrupt financial system and they don't even bother to discuss it. Instead they talk about polls taken that only include a 1000 Americans or less as if those polls are more reflective than what's ACTUALLY happening out in the streets. The NY Times needs to get theirs heads out of their behinds and pay attention to what's going on not what they THINK will happen. They talk as if Mr. "Corporations are people my friend" Romney can win in 2012!!! ROTFLMAO!! There is no way he can win in 2012. Americans are FED UP with wall street businessmen like him! The best candidate is Ron Paul and they just act as if he doesn't exist!

WHY don't they discuss HIM instead of forcing these losing candidates on us that they think are important? What a JOKE of a podcast, this should be in the comedy section!

p.s. One great aspect of Occupy Wall Street is that it continues to spread like wildfire across the country--in spite of being completely ignored by the media. Watch and see how much they ignore it once they realize that the Occupy Wall Street protesters across the country WILL decide who will be the next President of the United States!
