The Daily Reviews
I like ducks.
This podcast is a pathetic excuse for news, like what Taco Bell is to authentic Mexican food. "The Daily" is not news reporting; it is biased one-sided advocacy reportage. It should be listed in the ‘fiction’ category, not the ‘news’ category. We teach children that you needn’t say untrue things to be a liar, but that withholding relevant information is just as egregious. These are called lies of omission, and they are the stock-in-trade of host Michael Barbaro. Every episode of The Daily is a dose of cherry picked information meant to spin a tale & shape opinion to Barbaro’s own political leanings (and that of the New York Times) that bears very little resemblance to reality: while the words spoken may be factually accurate, he intentionally withholds information that would otherwise change the listener’s understanding of the story. Those are lies: lies of omission. Imagine this example: a man pushes a child out of the way of a car speeding down a residential street, saving the child’s life. Here’s how various media outlets might report it: FOX NEWS: “Hero saves child’s life, pushing her out of the way of a speeding car.” NPR: “White man pushes black child from the path of speeding car, possibly saving child’s life in the process. Child sustains minor injuries but will recover.” THE DAILY: “White male throws young black child to the ground, breaking her arm. Community is outraged.” FOX told you the truth but sensationalized it for clickbait. NPR told you the truth but felt the need to inject some identity information even though it added nothing to the story. But Barbaro straight up lied to you; yes, the specific information presented might be true, but he wildly mischaracterized what actually happened…intentionally. By leaving out relevant information—in this case, that the man saved the child’s life, the listener is left to conclude that the man assaulted the child, when this is patently false. Barbaro would hide behind the notion that he never actually said the man assaulted the child, but—given the withheld information—the inevitable conclusion was obvious and by withholding the exculpatory information, a lie was told. This is what you get with ‘The Daily.’ You do not get news. You get a daily dose of steaming hot garbage intentionally crafted to stoke anger towards one side of the ideological spectrum. The Daily (and the Times along with it) today bear zero resemblance to the great news gathering organization that the New York Times used to be.
Host speaks with a very annoying, affected voice and takes an over-simplified approach to topics as if speaking to children.

Listen to this during COVID-19 if you want to be depressed and lose every ounce of hope for the human race.
I’ve been listening to Alberta Hunter lately too. She played the Cookery in about 1982, and I think with Tommy Flanagan on piano. These amazing musicians were in their eighties, and nobody could teach them anything. They were too busy giving everything.
I listen to your podcast every day now. So great to have such a professional, intelligent, balanced and well researched source of news in days like this!
Thank you so very much to Michael B., the Daily team and all the brilliant reporters and staff at the NY Times for your diligent and sage news coverage. The Daily has been part of my daily routine for a year or so. I’d be lost without it. And yes, I am a subscriber too!
In listen to this podcast every morning. I love how far they travel to give us the true version of current events.
I can’t tell you this podcast it is my go to every day
I appreciate how this podcast gives attention to different points of view (but could get more of the republican side). Also, in depth stories on various subjects - Boeing comes to mind. I find the personal stories of effects of various government policies and social trends to be eye opening.
I absolutely love this pod, thank you for making it. I rely on it to keep myself informed with its thorough-yet-digestible looks at today's events featuring experts in the field interspersed with more creative episodes on 'non-current event' topics. The quality is unmatched. Keep it up!
Short and informative. Explains current events in easy to understand terms. I appreciate and listen everyday.
I can’t imagine a commute without the Daily.

So helpful and relevant. Thank you
Essential listening. Delightfully produced. Thank you, NYT. I subscribed to the paper to help support this podcast.
Michael sounds like he needs to breathe more deeply. His voice is strained and doesn’t flow smoothly. I like the content of The Daily. Keep up the good work!
The color brown exists because Chuck Norris scared the shit out of while.
I live a long way from New York in Auckland, New Zealand but it’s still relevant to me, especially the Epstein and Weinstein stories. I listen to The Daily on the daily. Brilliant journalism, keep doing what you do. By the way I love Michael’s hmmmm’s 👍
The Daily is my staple in-depth analysis and news source. Production values, balance and fairness, all combine to provide a superb reference. It provides 25minutes of sanity and insight. Thank you all - what a team!
I’m a regular listener and fan but the pod I just listened to was a really innovative way of sharing information on a saturated news story through the eyes of a curious child. Bravo for finding him and talking to him so well. It was a joyful listen today.
Helps me to fall asleep which is good as I suffer from insomnia
I always listen and appreciate the in depth reporting of this show. It may be too close to home but I didn’t appreciate the bit of blame to minority’s in particular on this episode. I fear the bigots will grab this. I’m a proud Ukrainian Australian, my partner has terminal cancer. I believe In vaccination always have. Factually accurate or not, I don’t believe it’s relevant to mention the Ukraine. Health care in the USA and in a small community cannot be blamed on holidays to the Ukraine. Immunise you in the US you don’t need to blame a country of people that are still under the thumb of the old country. My whole family was killed by the fascists and ussr. It’s not helpful, stupid people will be racist and hate. It needs to stop. Peace ✌️
The truest of fans
This show is a breath of fresh air. I should know, I'm a true fan.
Excellent reporting. PLEASE STOP THE MELODRAMATIC MUSIC!!!! I really don’t need to be told how to feel about any story you are reporting, I can make up my mind. Don’t US citizens understand something unless there’s music attached to it? Objective reporting should rely on the content, not on sentimental music... GB
Living oversea in the UK The Daily has been a constant reliable source of fact based new covering a wide range of complex topics. Love Michaels voice and his way of asking the questions we all want to understand. Great work by the Daily team! GB
The Daily podcast covers each day one news event in the world in detail. It really goes deep trying to understand a situation, reporting it from all sides. Great interviews with the New York Times reporters covering each topic. I highly recommend it. GB
