Journal as in Journalist?

Show is ok. Some episodes are better than others, but I routinely find myself asking why the most basic counter argument or questions aren’t posed. Is this journalism or an editorial? If you’re looking for a 15 min focus on a single news story, this ain’t it. This is a 15 min oral argument for 1 side.

Basically the Daily

This show is fine. It’s basically The Daily, with all the same wokeness and social justice rhetoric. Tolerable, I guess.
