  • Bias reporting

    Absolutely appalling reporting skim on facts and a lot of rhetoric - poor choice if you want to get actual news and not just poorly veiled propaganda

  • Infiltrated by the big boys

    I cannot stand my news analysis being interrupted by ads from Ladbroke. Gambling advertising is evil and should be banned.

  • Corporate propaganda

    Hearing the business columnist, never has someone licked the boots of their corporate masters so much. Defending the price gouging when there’s only one grocery shop in town, they’d rather see us starve than have the poor CEO answer for the greed that’s devastating working people.
