No More Ihnatko!!!

Please please please replace Andy Ihnatko with Lori Gil. It is becoming tiring listening to him use this show as a political platform. I can appreciate balanced reporting on the pros and cons of the Apple ecosystem, but his far left opinions are woven into every issue. If I want politics I’ll watch something else, if I want to learn about Apple products I’ll watch MacBreak Weekly and the other great TWIT shows. Sorry that you can’t afford Apple products Andy, but that’s not the governments fault, stick to the topic! Thank you Leo for great content, but Andy is causing me to use the jump ahead button more and more.

I belive that Apple is providing the tools to improve their digital content interaction. So it wasn't pushed out as a requirement, but an option to improve the impact of the publication.
