  • Perhaps the most obviously biased show on the BBC

    Classic BBC: twice as many hosts as the average pod, all on the tax payer’s buck; unashamedly anti-Trump: and an intro that actually sneers at the United States.

  • British journalism down the drain

    Superficial, tabloid style approach that is a very poor cousin to a number of quality (American) podcasts on US politics. Opinionated but uniformed presenters who don’t even seem interested in doing their homework.

  • Absurdly biased. I mean really..

    For goodness’ sake just call it Trumpcast. This show is dreadful sorry.. "Miss-Information" Oh good grief, if this the future of the BBC that I used to love, I am not optimistic. Remove any paintings of Lord Reith from corridors of that place. Sorry to join the pile in, nothing personal, Marianna is out of her depth. A bad show.
