Flirting with bias in What’s News

Whenever the lead narrators speak about the president or the administration, little side comments are made that show potential distaste. Please stick to the news, we come here for news, not CNN drama.

I miss times when there was NO Joanna Stern

The news and analysis is great but please take off the Joanna Stern tech tips part. It comes across as a filler for times when you don’t have news.There is ALWAYS tech news around and even the most boring news would be better that the tech tips bu Joanna Stern. Also the sort of banter that Kateri and Joanna sounds very forced and juvenile.

The Wall Street Journal is not what it used to be.

The headlines are fine, but the in depth features are horribly slanted to the political left. If you are hoping for a neutral podcast on the news, unfortunately this is not a podcast for you. The Wall Street Journal used to have a reputation for neutral unbiased business and economic reporting, but Ann Marie Fertolli cheerleading for the political left is not neutral. Keep looking for a better, more neutral podcast of the news.
