Stop saying over and over that CNN under Zucker was liberal

Have you forgotten how CNN played Trump’s 2016 campaign rallies in full? The coverage they gave Trump was endless. Coverage of Hillary focused on Trump and his supporters’ false accusations and slurs against her. CNN had “both sides” commentator panels respond to every political story in a way that gave the Trump lies a credence they didn’t deserve. Only after Trump’s and his administration’s lies and cons became too obvious to ignore did CNN do what they had to - report Trump’s

Interesting idea, needs new host

The guests that are brought on are interesting to listen to- but the stories that are covered tend to be dated by 4-5 days. It’s a podcast, keep up with current events. No one wants to hear a news podcast about stuff that happened last week. Additionally, Peter Hamby has a somewhat shallow understanding of politics on the left. He did a story on Katy Porter’s senate bid and completely neglected the mention how much outrage there has been over Dianne Feinstein’s behavior, obvious cognitive decline, possible signs of dementia, etc. A shallow reading of the story

It’s NewsCorp, not NewsCore

I’m a faithful fan of the Puck podcasts and its talented journos, but SMH whenever I hear one of your stars, like Dylan Byers, refer to NewsCorp (with a pronounced “p” at the end) as “NewsCore,” apparently mistaking the abbreviation for corporation (i.e, corp), as corps (as in the Marine Corps, which is pronounced core). Not picking on Dylan, because I’ve heard other prominent podcasters and broadcasters do the same, including, I believe, the estimable Scott Galloway, of whom I count myself in his legion of admirers.
