Growing disappointed

I used to love the Skimm. But their refusal to disengage in harmful diet culture rhetoric and promotions is becoming problematic and discouraging.

Missing long reads

Where are long reads in the new design?

Worth it

I’ve been a fan/ reader for quite a while, the only hitch being that the daily emails never quite made it to my inbox with any regularity. Filters? Something else? I asked, but it never got fixed. Finally broke down and paid my way, and things are better. I love the fresh tone and telegraphic style.

Went downhill at breakneck speed

I used to feel like The SKIMM was a great, less biased source to get the basics. Leading up to the 2020 election and most certainly afterwards, when there was loads of evidence coming forth about voter fraud (easily found and verified), The SKIMM kept emphasizing that it was ridiculous (in their tongue-in-cheek way). Regardless of who anyone voted for...the fraud and criminal activity surrounding it is beyond scary and threatens the fiber of the American way. I’d say THAT is newsworthy and certainly doesn’t deserve the condescending dismissal it has received by The SKIMM. Terribly disappointed.

Only MainStream Media

Just Democrat DNC trash is available to read.

Just.. No.

Completely bias as usual.

Used to be an ambassador

They got too political and too one sided. Sadly, I stopped following all of their news outlets and regret ever buying their book.

I used to think the Skimm was more balanced but in the months leading up to the 2020 election, it is clear that they are against anything in the Republican agenda. It is disappointing to say the least that yet another news source cannot be trusted. There is no where to turn that isn’t either super right or super left. And this includes the Skimm.

Love the format and the app. Don’t love the liberal bias.

When I signed up for the Skimm, I read they were moderate and got criticism for being too conservative or too liberal. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried it. And while the format, quality and brevity are great, I am disappointed to find this is predominantly liberal media. Their attempts represent the conservative side reveal their bias. Not surprising when you consider Google is an investor but still disappointing.
