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.

Hit piece, lazy journalism and FUDUsually like this podcast, but this latest episode about Space X and Elon Musk is nothing but hearsay and FUD. WSJ should have spoken to more than two people and maybe even other homeowners who sold their properties. One or two people who don’t like the SpaceX offers or terms to relocate doesn’t mean much. Speak to local authorities regarding Space X’s future plans. Comments like, “we need to fix our planet first” are nonsensical as Elon Musk’s other company is working hard and leading to make our planet more sustainable. Space X has been available to discuss the town to other reporters/journalists, why not this podcast? This is as lazy as journalism gets. WSJ should check actual research/legwork that went into this pod because this pod seems rushed for timing purposes..Score: 2/5

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

Annoying background soundI started listening one of the episodes on a very interesting subject.

MehI got turned on to this podcast for the Facebook episodes which I like. However, as is the case with most news reporting these days, some of these episodes clearly are not fair and balanced, lean to one side or don’t, almost purposely, leave out “the other side” of an issue or story. The authors clearly know when this happens so they should place a disclaimer in the title “Opinion” so we don’t get hoodwinked by assuming “fair and balanced” will be in a podcast with a very prominent “WSJ” on it face.Score: 5/5

As a clinician who too has seen a rise in tic disorders amongst female (identified) teens during the pandemic the issues are serious and need more clarity. Many questions not explored include - if it is true that Tic Toc use amongst teens is playing a major role in tic disorders showing up in this population, what is the science behind that ? How, why in watching videos of others does this show up in the watchers? Are there other explanations? Has the role of anxiety, stress pre-existing or pandemic related played a major role ?

Missing the obvious questionIn the most recent episode regarding organized crime stealing retail products from pharmacy CVS: Why did the interviewer fail to ask the interviewee the following question? Why not put physical security guard(s) at each CVS store to actually apprehend the booster and break the chain? The interviewee said CVS loses $100,000 per day due to booster/organized crime. Hard to imagine you can't put legitimate security guards at each store for less. It would only take one, alert, physically fit and armed security guard to significantly dissuade a low level booster thug. Is that notion somehow disagreeable to a woke culture? Is the Justice system into which the apprehended booster would be inserted by apprehension from security guard so ineffective that the booster would be back on the street later that day without financial or other real consequence?

Surprisingly excellent quality journalismI am a securities and options trader/investor and business owner. In my previous career I used to focus on public policy and avoided the WSJ. Almost everything I read from the newspaper had a clear right-wing, big corporate, socially irresponsible, making the rich richer, “profit over people”, anti-diversity, backwards bias—to the point of making it bad quality, inaccurate journalism. When it defended Trump, it completely lost credibility with me—until this podcast. Based on past experience, when I listened to my first episode of The Journal, my expectations were low and confirmation bias was ready to kick in and make me dislike it. But I was wrong. The quality of the journalism and interviews in this podcast is generally excellent. In fact, this show that has brought me back into the podcast universe after leaving it altogether for several years. This is the only program whose episodes I listen to everyday. It keeps me up to date on cutting edge issues and has taught me a great deal about important topics I otherwise wouldn’t have the time to research myself. When I read one poster’s comment about “leftist” views, I wanted to laugh. Whenever a media outlet reports truth, addresses issues concerning marginalized people, workers’ issues, prioritizes accuracy, and attempts to be more heterogeneous and 360 degrees in its perspectives, right wingers called it “leftist”. While this podcast has exceeded my expectations, there is still more that can be done to make it better. If this is indeed a podcast about “money, business and power,” then topics and analysis other than those with which we are inundated by dominant culture need to be presented . The Journal staff has done well in presenting some topics outside of those dictated by people in power socially, politically, culturally and economically. For example, I very much appreciated hearing about the challenges of an African-American mother who was evicted from her home during the pandemic. I was introduced to and have learned a great deal about NFTs, SPACs, etc. I like the reporting on the GameStop controversy and the issue of retail traders vs. hedge funds and investment banks. However, I was disappointed in the reporting on the unionization effort in the Amazon warehouse located in Georgia. The reporter on the ground did his best to present the workers’ perspectives, but giving the female “worker” who was anti-union so much airtime without providing context was irresponsible. She had only been working at the warehouse for 2 weeks and stated that the workers who supported unionization were the lazy ones. It was an outrageous statement that was allowed to go unchallenged. What should have been stated is that a common employer tactic is hiring workers for the stealth purpose of breaking the union drive from within and voting against it, that Amazon hired union busting firms to help them defeat the effort, held “captive audience meetings” where employees were forced to endure anti-union rhetoric and intimidation tactics. Overall, the Journal’s staff does an EXCELLENT job and I love listening to all of you. Thank you for your great work!!.Score: 5/5

Tends to lag events and fails to find truthOverall it’s a reasonably good imitation of the daily podcast from their main competitor. However, I find the reporters are too naive and don’t have enough context in reporting areas to ask guests useful questions; instead the guests get away with misleading statements. The journalistic quality mirrors the decline in the paper towards being another Murdoch tabloid, only one that targets the gullible affluent.Score: 2/5
