Balance

Love the show & always look forward to the football analysis from the 3 amigos. When it comes to discussing politics in the US, Stanage isn’t the best to have on all the time. I actually don’t listen to those shows anymore. I’m a Waterford man living in New Hampshire for 25 years and as we’re first in the nation voters I’ve seen a lot of debate through the years. Balance it up with someone from the center/center right. I consider myself socially liberal, fiscally conservative so not really represented in either party but I can see the arguments on both sides.

Could really do with a different point of view from the US besides that left wing Niall Stanage. He mentions irrelevant news about Congresswomen Bobert and the comments she made about congresswoman Omar, but failed to mention the daily anti-semitism spewing from Omar’s disgusting hateful mouth.

Zero balance, not a real reflection of what is happening

I have listened to several US orientated podcasts. The lack of context and true objectivity is alarming. Niall Stanage is about as one sided as you can get and is the opposite of transparent journalism. The constant Trump bashing is getting old - we get it, orange man bad all the time. But the man has been out of power for almost two years now. Whether he regains his office is a question for democracy and I believe over 75 million voted for him last time out. Perhaps Eamo can investigate why some many people feel this way ? As but one of many examples: While Eamo can express disgust at the “treatment” of Venezuelan migrants and sympathize with the 48 hour plight of some of the richest people on the planet by being exposed to such horrors, he fails to understand or question the broader issue at play. The border is broken and US Border towns are expected to deal with a massive influx of migrants but instead he focuses on Martha’s Vineyard getting a taste of the medicine they asked for with their hypocritical virtue signaling. The core issue is ignored. Just like he ignores the out of control Inflation, insane energy policies, weak foreign policy and the odious scandals of Biden and Hilary Clinton. You want to hold people accountable ? Fine, but focusing on only one out of power president while ignoring the massive incompetence and corruption of the current administration while blindly agreeing with a partisan so called journalist from The Hill is lazy journalism.
