Missing content and duplicate headlines
Any additional comments?
I switched over to the WSJ subscription to escape the political lopsidedness I was getting from the New York Times. However, the WSJ subscription needs better editing. After listening for a few months now, I've lost count on how many times a headline is read out in both the "News you should know" & "Tech News You Should Know" section. Why would you read out the same headline twice? Isn't that redundant?
Worse though is when they read the headline of an article, but then that article is never even covered in the issue. A few weeks back they had this happen with a Pokemon Go! story; It was listed as a "News you should know" at the beginning of the issue, but they never covered the actual story. What good is the "News I SHOULD Know" if you're just going to give me the catchy headline to the article without the substance? This is just one example, but I notice it happens at LEAST once a week on average.
In short: I appreciate the less-political nature of the WSJ vs the NYT, but the quality control on the WSJ needs help. As a political moderate that doesn't fit the template of the Democrat or Republican POV, I really wish I had a better option to choose from instead of the incredibly left-leaning New York Times and the slightly right-leaning, but not as high quality WSJ subscriptions.
