Kudos to the Fifth Estate

Character assassination is a dirty trick. Newt Gingrich took an unnecessarily aggressive posture when he hung up on the call. Kudos to you and ABC News for leaving in the full interview. I’m sorry the interview ended this way, but on one hand, Newt was right. The white house press corps asks a lot of circuitous questions that put politicians on the spot. You put Newt on the spot and even though you opted to full disclosure, he didn’t. He was there to publicize his book. You wanted to get him on the record in regards to his character assassination of the press. Both sides need to take a break and stop shoveling muck on each other. We need to call a truce and get back our American spirit. United we stand. Divided we fall. Why can’t we all get along?During these troubled times, we desperately need a free press. The press is NOT the enemy of the people. It is our last defense as you speak truth to power, better than our elected officials. Please keep doing what you’re doing, but do it in a way that doesn’t leave bitter feelings and a breakdown in communication.

Completely biased

After the review of Mueller’s testimony your Podcasts has lost all credibility I’ve never heard anything more biased

Politics or Baseball?????

Very biased reporting. If president Trump brought us world peace, your network would still find something wrong. I also thought I subscribed to a politics podcast not baseball.

Disappointed

Slanted reductionist analysis. Should be better. The 2 journalists can be better.

Decent

Pretty basic news that isn’t biased. They seem to go out of their way to avoid controversy which is weird for the news. Good stuff

Loved 81 Documents. Exciting to have Lana Zak host with Rick, glad to hear a woman’s take on divided government.

Fox News or ABC???

Am I listening to a Fox News podcast? Fred Luntz really? Could you find a more partisan guest with no rebuttal? Karl’s a GOP booster and it shows.

Many better options to choose from.

Podcasts are my main source of news and entertainment. I first subscribed to this podcast because of an ad on another ABC podcast I love, Start Here. The topics and analysis are pretty shallow and boring. NPR politics, FiveThirtyEight, Politico Top Stories and Politico’s Nerdcast are great podcasts for political analysis.

What happened?

As a reporter and a diehard fan of this podcast, I have to say that I astonished by the passive way that Karl and Klein let the freshman Congresswoman prattle on for several minutes at a time without even somewhat answering their questions. It was passive and embarrassing. Most importantly, it was a waste of listeners’ time. In a field crowded political podcasts, you can’t slack. Wake up, fellas!

Interview w/Virginia Rep

Wow! How is she allowed to continue not answering? More than 10 mins of uninterrupted talking points and standard politico nonsense. Great questions, too bad she was unwilling to even address them.

Gone down hill

Originally found this a good podcast focused on level headed analysis esp from presidential press pool. Addition of Mary Alice Parks has really changed that. Her bias’ are way too clear. If I want that I’d listen to Hannity. Prob will unsubscribe.
