Details matter

Why does The NY Times keep saying Derek Chauvin pressed his knees on George Floyd’s neck for “nearly 8 minutes” when the time was greater than 8 minutes and closer to nearly 9 minutes. It’s frustrating and harkens back to NY Times misreporting of black issues and racist tones in its publications.

Only nuisance, otherwise love this program and others from this outlet.

Great Podcast!

The narration is great and helps me "read" popular articles on my drive to work each morning. They have a good mixture of politics and other news without being too heavy on one theme or topic.

Bias

Some of their articles are biased. Turns me off.
