I used to really enjoy this radio show, then it went off air when my local public radio station changed their programming.
I was happy to find this as a podcast and listened for quite sometime. Lately, however, I've found myself increasingly more annoyed with their biased reporting.
I enjoy hearing stories from around the world but I don't like hearing their slanted line of questioning that skews one way.
This is definitely a left leaning show, and if you don't mind that, go ahead and subscribe. While I lean left in my political views, I want objective coverage and that is not something I will find in this podcast.
I've noticed some reporters accidentally misreport things and make things seem worse than they actually are. Not on big stories, but more like smaller details of the bigger picture. For instance it matters when a PRI reporter states "Officials in Flint Michigan switched to a contaminated water source..." When what actually happened is that they switched to a water source that wasn't treated correctly and resulted in the stripping of lead from pipes in Flint. It's the little things, but it really matters to make sure you report a story 100% accurately. Listening to that story made me wonder, what else had PRI The World misrepresented that I had taken to be true? It wasn't the only time that happened but it's the instance I remember the most.
I held off on unsubscribing for as long as I could, but I guess I'll have to look for objective coverage elsewhere in a daily news show.
