WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch Podcast Reviews

Nothing ventured...and very little gained. If you want bland regurgitation of Paul-Ryan talking points, this is the show for you. Perhaps because episodes are relatively unstructured, Potomac Watch has essentially ended up belatedly regurgitating the daily apologia for the Trump Administration as received via cable news. Everything is seen through a party-political lense. If you want sensible political commentary from the business press, try the FT..Score: 1/5

Not worthy of the WSJThis is basically Fox & Friends in a podcast. Not worthy of the WSJ. Basically repeating the Trump party line without even trying to have some objectivity. Not all Republicans have to all agree with this quasi end of Roman empire administration. Agreed this is “opinion” but a more objective approach and analysis would be welcome. This is basic and not challenging. The FT is light years ahead..Score: 1/5

Constant sound issues...As someone who works in audio, it surprises me that a paper with a long history and analysts with years of experience would put together a podcast with such shoddy and easily fixable audio annoyances. From explosive p’s and heavy breathing to thumps and knocking of microphones paper rustling, it like no one has ever recorded before. The insights are completely distracted by these interruptions. Is there no sound engineer or technician? I’ll do it for free! Just fix it, please..Score: 3/5

Unsubscribed after listening for yearsI listened for years, but unsubscribed after listening to the first show after the Trump insurrection. The very first thing they discussed was the failure of Capitol Hill Police, which is of course important but it’s like walking in on a murder and the first thing you want to talk about is a broken window in the room. Then they discussed the history of the 25th Amendment. Finally, they discussed whether what happened was really Trump’s fault....and Kimberley Strassal defended Trump. Strassal is on the fringes and dangerously intellectually dishonest, or genuinely has no idea what she’s talking about. Either way, WSJ needs to prove what kind of journalists they are (or are not)..Score: 1/5

Very biasedIt looks like a lot of the usual advertisers have decided to give this biased podcast a pass..Score: 1/5

Hoping for better ...I have been searching for a balance in my news sources between right and left. I was optimistic this was a good place to hear different perspectives. However, I’m resuming my search due to the frequent misrepresentations of facts. Most recently, the claim that renewables are responsible for Texas’ power outage. This is inaccurate and misleading on a serious topic. Disappointed this still gets the WSJ’s endorsement..Score: 2/5

LazyIve been a fan of the WSJ and the Ed board for going on two decades now. I keep giving this podcasts a chance, however, I find the commentary and analysis lazy at best. If you want three people to regurgitating bad talking points from Kevin McCarthy’s office then this podcast is for you! Two stars. Would be one, but I think the show has promise when Kim is absent so I’ll be generous..Score: 2/5

Pretty goodIt’s great and one of the few places to hear intelligent conservative voices, but the show hosts just agree to each other. They need to have a token liberal who at least provides some counter arguments once in a while. The audience would appreciate it and the show would be more lively.Score: 4/5

Come on.How can the first thing y’all talk about after 1/6/21 is Capitol security failures, not the person that set the mob on their merry way? While you guys did better than other outlets regarding the non-existent voter fraud, I’d ask that y’all take a listen to the episode you put out on 1/6/21 and respond line by line in light of what happened that day. And you misremember and misunderstand the comparisons to the summer protests. Do better..Score: 1/5

Need Paul Gigot BackWithout Paul Gigot acting as a moderator and offering consistent pushback on point made by Bill McGurn and Kyle Perterson, this pod has turned into a boring morass that is little more than national, macro republican talking points.

Three people with the same biased opinionI was hoping for a conservative leaning panel show that would have some debates and nuanced discussion on the weeks news. That’s not what this is. It is three people all with the same opinion that hardly differs from the current Republican Party. They always defend Trump, even after the insurrection, and give no benefit of the doubt to Biden. There are liberal podcasts like this too, and I don’t like them either. This is more like Fox News and less like the strong analysis one gets from The Economist, or what I would expect from the WSJ..Score: 1/5

Very disappointed by biasI’ve been trying to find additional news sources and thought the Wall Street Journal had a reputation for being honest if somewhat conservative. The first episode that downloaded was January 15 “impeachment aftermath”. After five minutes I couldn’t listen anymore. First, one person described “so much disregard for normal procedure” in the 2021 impeachment. While I could see his point, there was no mention of all the norms Trump has broken. Then a second person said there was no evidence that Trump incited the riot at the capitol. What about the recordings of Trump telling the crowd to go there? Whether he intended a riot or not he said the words and told the lies that led to it. Then they said that Trump wasn’t responsible because “look at his comments he’s made since then in which he’s actually come out and very firmly said there cannot be more violence”. Are they kidding? That was only after it happened, after saying he loved the rioters, after people were hurt, after a long delay, and after seeing there might be negative repercussions. The final straw was one commentator saying “the Democrats, who’ve never been interested in the Constitution“. That generalization told me these people are completely biased. If you want honest reporting don’t bother with this podcast..Score: 1/5

I can’t listen anymoreI’ve been listening for over four years and I was absolutely astounded by the first episode after the 1/6 insurrection. Kim Strassel is A Trump apologist and she makes it explicitly in her excuses for the President’s behavior on 1/6. Neither she or Bill McGurn could even attempt to call the president out for his dangerous rhetoric. I feel for Kyle Peterson who does attempt to push back against Bill McGurn and try to bring things a little more right of center, unfortunately he’s always steamrolled. It was unbelievably disappointing to see them blame what we experience at the feet of the Capitol police only and not call out leadership..Score: 1/5

F grade partiality AND ignoranceUpdating rating further, can I rate no stars? Completely ignorant discussion of the blackout energy problems in Texas right now, by all panelists.

Great substantive facts and explanationsKim Strassle is excellent and takes a stance that supports conservative policies more than most.

Texas Electricity ProblemsInteresting (but I guess totally predictable) that Mr McGurn in discussing the Texas electricity shortages took the opportunity to slam wind power and renewable energy in general and said the shortages prove we need more fossil fuel and nuclear. A reading of today’s WSJ (Feb 16) “The grid operator said it lost about 34,000 MW of supply as freezing temperatures forced natural gas and coal operated power plants offline in quick succession. The weather also reduced natural gas supplies and caused wind turbines to freeze in West Texas to freeze”. The problems went way beyond wind turbines but you wouldn’t know it from the podcast. Did Mr. McGurn talk to the reporters or read his own paper? I look forward to an in depth discussion of the serious problems in Texas but it won’t be on Potomac Watch..Score: 2/5

PA VOTER-WHO PROTECTS MEI can always count on you to bring me facts, perspective and have always enjoyed this podcast. I was so mad after I listened to this. In a prior podcast Kim brought up that in PA THEY DID NOT FOLLOW our state constitution. Justice Roberts punted and this disgusts me. In my state they allowed ballots with no signatures or POSTMARKS to roll in. My vote was stolen in my opinion. I happen to have a Dem. Gov. and Dem state supreme court so shocker that this crap was done. Biden in office has a chance to wreck ALOT of us with raised taxes snd oil snd gas future. So the SUPREME court should HAVE HEARD the TX case for all of us who know their state BROKE the law and not because i am a spoiled sport snd don't like the winner. Lastly, you know based on suppression of this story, that this cute little “tax” story was planned and dropped right before Christmas. The fact that CNN is now reporting on this makes u know it was planned. It is B.S. and you know he will never b charged. His laptop was said to have thousands of child porn images on it. Oh that was swept away. He and Joe Biden are going to get away with it all. Nanc - Ripped off PA voter.Score: 1/5
