Great Segment to Start my Day
I start each day by listening to The Dallas Morning News’ headline news. It provides just what I need to get rolling and directs me to the articles I want to read in more depth! Mary and Alex do a good job... Just enough, yet not too much. Thanks!
Sloppy and unprofessional podcast and reporting in general. Often takes national comments on the state and state leaders and repeats them without understanding the situation or adding any value. If I wanted national news, I would go to a national source. Do your own homework! And don’t just repeat what someone else says, it makes you look like a fool.
