Thousands die in New York every year. Some of them alone. The city might weep when the celebrated die, or the innocent are slain, but for those who pass in an unwatched struggle, there is no one to mourn for them and their names, simply added to a death table.In 2014, George Bell, 72, was among those names. He died alone in his apartment in north central Queens.On today’s Sunday Read, what happens when someone dies, and no one is there to arrange their funeral? And who exactly was George Bell?This story was written by N.R. Kleinfield and recorded by Audm.

The Construction of (US) NewsAs some reviewers say, the Daily really is great and a bit of a boogy man. At its best, it talks one to one with an expert or a person involved in an issue and thus gives you the inside track on that issue. Because of this, it is extremely informative. On the flip side, it is very much a construction. Some find the music annoying, in that it dramatises the news. Sometimes this is clearly unnecessary and is designed to simply play on your emotions. Or am I meant to think deeply about something during 'that' dramatic pause? It likewise has a tendency to lean towards over sentimentality (particularly around children). Even though I’m not American, it has become a joke when I listen to the political analysis that the coverage will be anti-Sanders. Almost all US politicians would be considered to the right of their European counterparts, so terms like ‘moderate’ are almost entirely meaningless. On the flip side, getting a US liberal perspective on events outside the US can offer some insights..Score: 3/5

At its best, it is brilliantThis podcast gives a longer format than a newspaper article, so you get to hear the full back story and context, and gain an appreciation of the sheer amount of investigation and time and energy that goes into every story- and I especially love that the brilliance and the personalities of the reporters get to shine through, since you often miss that in the printed news..Score: 5/5

Complete misreading of Boris JohnsonAs someone living in the UK I was deeply upset by the episode on Tuesday, May 12, 2020. To say that Boris Johnson and his government are showing signs of caution in their measures to ease the lockdown is, in my humble opinion, wildly beside the point. Doctors and frontline workers are still not getting the protective equipment that they need and vulnerable people are hugely at risk by vague government guidance to go back to work and to ‘stay alert’. Is this not another case of government failing to take responsibility for its mishandling of the crisis by relegating responsibility to its citizens? How does it fit in with a conservative governments agenda of weakening the NHS and handing lucrative contracts to private companies no matter what the cost to public health? I am a big fan of The Daily and it’s attempts to roll back to where a story actually starts, but in this case it feels like you have merely skimmed the surface of a story and misrepresented its real significance..Score: 1/5

Boris Johnson’s Change of Heart...I love The Daily and find many of their episodes incredibly insightful. However their UK coverage can be slightly shallow (nothing against the guest journalists) and I found it particularly skewed in this weeks episode. Boris Johnson’s government has not been taking this crisis the most seriously, as the final line suggests. This tragedy has been acerbated by the government’s cuts to the NHS over the past ten years, a systemic failure to coordinate PPE within Europe and for paying ‘admiring’ lip service to our front line workers but often not paying them properly or sufficiently protecting them..Score: 1/5

Assassination is SuleimaniI listen to the Daily Podcast religiously every day, but I am deeply disappointed sometimes by the shocking bias ingrained in the reporting. For example, in this episode, you completely brush off the 1988 event, that Iran made a lot of noise over it, when the US “mistakenly” shot down an Iranian airliner killing 290 civilians. Thought experiment: Iran “mistakenly” shoots down US airliner killing 290 civilians - what is the American response? .... Michael also asks in this episode, is Iraq allowed to expel US troops from its own sovereign land? [I added the last bit myself].... this is not the only stupid thing he says in this episode. It is very disappointing from a host that I respect and listen to on a daily basis. I hope you can keep your American arrogance in check, and that you can commit to balanced and thought-provoking discussions, not empty words that serve little beyond displaying your American superiority. In this episode, it would have been interesting to learn more about how Iran became a “US enemy”, and the response from the rest of the world over the assassination.

I often avoid listening to Sunday reads, although I find the topics of choice interesting and I would otherwise love to listen; either audio edit is so unprofessional or the narration is not very good, ( for example "The Agency", if you manage to listen to this all way through you are a hero!! It starts ok but then the narrator goes into a monotonous 'kill me now' mode, i loved the topic but couldn't listen past the half mark, and I tried hard. Sorry but this is probably the worst narration I've heard ever! there is no coherence and it sounds like someone is reading words that have no meaning?! Obviously this narrator either was not a professional( that doesn't always mean you get good work done), not interested in the topic, obliged to be working for free, or I don't know, maybe check in with a psychiatrist :) ) I can listen to Michael though, and all his guest journalists and guest topics!

Think criticallyIn an episode on 'The Stakes on Super Tuesday', Michael and co. went to a wealthy suburb outside of D.C. and asked some wealthy guy about his personal history with Joe Biden and to detail why Sanders' bid for the nomination was wrong. All on Super Tuesday. A better, more balanced approach would have been to conduct a second interview with a low-income worker, or a debt-ridden student, in a different part of the country, and ask why they were supporting Sanders, no? Instead, I listened to 30 minutes of this guy saying that he understood why Americans would feel the system is broken, but he just thought Biden was a 'really great guy'. This also came a few weeks after the podcast had a very self-indulgent episode about why the NY Times reporting bias was poorly judged back in the 2016 election, and what they could 'learn' from it. Don't get me wrong, I listen to The Daily every day and I learn so much from it. The work they do is important, especially in today's world. Recent episodes on Coronavirus in Wuhan, Carlos Ghosn and 'Megxit' were impeccably made and a great insight into stories from other countries. I've found that, after many months of listening, the stories from abroad are often less biased, but these stories don't happen often enough. Therefore, so long as you're listening analytically, questioning why they've chosen to interview this person/group/place, rather than that person/group/place, then this is a great podcast, but try to follow-up with varied news sources and stories..Score: 3/5

This essentially ensured that only a small fraction of the original listeners would hear their retraction and examination of their shoddy reporting.

Biased reporting on RwandaIncredibly disappointed with the reporting in the episode about Paul Rusesabagina and Kagame. Not a single Rwandan perspective. I find it hard to believe the NYTimes couldn't find any qualified Rwandan journalists to shed some light on how Rwandans feel about the situation regarding Rusesabagina, refugees in the Congo, and the violent attack the FNL carried out against Rwandans after Rusesabagina’s message to them to “use any means necessary.” Instead, they chose to have an American, an Irishman, and what I believe is a Kenyan man tell this deeply Rwandan story.

Like the prior a antitrust suit against IBM, the market cured any potential monopoly.

One Idea for OdessaIf you set a high priority for vaccinating teachers and school kids, bring them back in in the fall and have them repeat the grade. In the meantime do something engaging the kids, like doing a play, reading, discussing and writing an essay on a book, giving them exercises that develop critical thinking, media literacy, have them read about people who kept journals and have them keep one and turn in parts of them for comments by the teacher who can also correct writing and spelling, give each kid an imaginary amount of money and let them write their goals and give examples of how they can spend and make money to achieve goals and essentially how to budget - this could be a math exercise as well as develop life skills, have them pick a topic from the news, getting them to read newspapers and watch tv news, etc and do an oral presentation on it for the class - to establish thinking and presentation skills, and teacher can ask the presenter questions about the topic to expand their understanding or if not fleshed out, recommend good web sites to do further research on the topic - teaching them skills.

He died alone in his apartment in north central Queens.On today’s Sunday Read, what happens when someone dies, and no one is there to arrange their funeral? And who exactly was George Bell?This story was written by N.R. Kleinfield and recorded by Audm.
