Unbiased, part of my routine
I love this podcast. If not on daily routine, it is part of my weekend routine where I listen to whole week news together. I love the unbiased and just fact based news. Not the opinion of newscaster but giving me all information to make an informed opinion. Thank you for always putting two sides
Talking about things in a convoluted way
I appreciate NPR however I was listening to the latest episode dated June 15. In that episode the way and the nuanced words the show used in telling who won which elections was very unclear and biased. Journalism does not need opinionated election results. Rather it should be results stating political affiliation and results, not opinionated results. It’s very hard to understand and does not want viewers to come to your show for actual facts of results.
On the abortion podcast I feel that the show should have included that our representatives work for the people that live in each state and that the people will vote on such matters. That is why it is so important in politics to start being involved locally.
Part of My Morning Habits
Love, most of the time, unbiased news reporting and information. I always start out my day with Up First and will continue to do so.
