Liberal newsI am listening now to the podcast defending Twitter partisan censorship to protect Biden, supposedly because of Russian disinformation, when there is zero evidence for such a claim. Someone needs to tell WSJ News team that they are not Editorial (for a good reason) and they should not be partisan. I expect impartiality from the WSJ news section and this is really embarrassing. After the elections, some changes have to be made there..Score: 2/5

Best podcast everGenuinely one of my favourite podcasts I’ve ever listened to..Score: 5/5

Lack of DepthMost episodes are reasonably informative. But some of the 15 min episodes offer no more value than a headline and have strong ideological leanings than fact based analysis. Using the recent podcast on Exxon Mobile as an example, the guest claimed that Exxon’s decline is due to its refusal to follow some of its rivals to commit to renewable energy; furthermore, the guest claimed the renewables would provide steady stream of future income as if these were facts. The host ate it all up like a patron in a church. It’s a known fact that renewable energy costs 2x more than fossil fuel energy; how can it provide any kind of “steady income “ without government subsidies? How did renewables help Exxon’s rivals avoid declines? Last time I checked, it didn’t. It’s reasonable to question the long term effectiveness of Exxon’s strategy, but confusing facts with ideals and spreading the gospels of the new green religion is not quality journalism..Score: 2/5

I would expect WSJ to have a basic understanding of corporate debtWhy was Trump organizations debt refinance sensationalized as if it is any different from any corporate debt that only pays interest and the full principal due at maturity? You made it seem like they did something wrong structuring they debt that way - very disappointing. I am a credit research analyst and basically all of my companies’ debt is structured that way.

Unbalanced reportingI have observed this production increasingly migrate to what sounds like a mouthpiece of mainstream narratives rather than balanced and holistic reporting. The Melinda Gates interview was a perfect example; extensive discussion about vaccine safety and the role of the FDA, yet not a single intelligent line of inquiry in response to the “misinformation” narrative (or acknowledgement of legislation passed in 1986 that essentially transfers all vaccine injury liability to the US taxpayer). Yet another example of shallow reporting, which I can subject myself to any number of on other mainstream media platforms..Score: 1/5

Definitely a slant to the hard leftI have been listening to this podcast for the last couple months. I am a Wall Street Journal subscriber. The one thing I noticed about this podcast is it leaves out half of the story every single time. For example on the story about Amy Conney Barrett they played Diane Feinstein’s statement about the dogma lives loudly in the nominee. However they missed the obvious which is that abortion (choice) is a dogmatic position for the Democrats. In fact it is much more of a dogma than any religious position. Hence 1/2 a story.Score: 3/5

Love the Journal but disappointed in women portrayalI listen to the Journal daily (and LOVE it) but was disappointed in the portrayal of Carla DiBello. I do not know this woman personally but believe she doesn’t deserve the sceptical & judgemental tone of this reporting when she seems to have done nothing wrong, other than be a successful business woman. If the problem is with the Saudi men of this fund making decisions based on a relationship, she should not be to blame for being a good networker. I’m also not sure how her links to the kardashians are relevant to the story & seem to be used alongside her education to devalue her. Funny how when successful men lack qualifications, they are positioned as fighters & respected for rising above their lot, but when a woman like Carla does, it’s viewed with suspicion. Give her a break guys, she is one of the first to showcase women in business on a global scale in a country that has such a long way to go with gender equality. Don’t cut her down & promote unconscious bias.Score: 3/5
