Good Reporting

By HodorTheTriumphant - May 11 2019
Read more

This feed has had issues lately, but NPR News is some of the best reliable reporting in the US. Ignore the trolls who can’t stand them reporting relevant stories, or who need everything spoon fed to them in the form of propaganda. NPR does a good job, and honest reporting is needed now more than ever.

What happened...?

A week ago or so, NPR News Now suddenly disappeared from my subscriptions and was replaced with Planet Money! Now, NPR News Now is back but, instead of 5 minutes of up to date news, it’s still episodes of Planet Money! What Happened?!?!?
