Go to news bulletin
Usually I get the important news of the day. However, I don’t really enjoy some of the feature bits, and would prefer just the read news. Newsreaders delivery is excellent.
Sure why not
Fine for verified facts and human interest. The analysis is shallow and the interviews trend toward curtesy more than challenge. It’s a good regular update, reliably on time and with the benefit of having a wide network of boots on the ground. You get the benefit of the large machinery behind the news organization.
Great quality journalism without being overly sensationalist.
