In this age of Fox someone needs to stand up for the truth
Thumbs down for this magazine
The Washington Post has cracked so many big stories over the past three years that I would feel out of the loop if I did not read it. The international and climate reporting makes the complex, understandable. Great pieces on race and culture and I love entertainment page!
....but please improve your comments function. No comments are visible while using a phone, too many trolls, too much name calling rather than substantive contributions. Thanks for the great reporting, though.
The well oiled machines of tech, Apple, Google, FB and the like make tech easy and often seamless, so it’s painfully obvious when bad tech puts clunky, difficult to use apps into the mix. The WaPo app is still clinging to the antiquated idea that the editor and his minions should be the gate keepers of news. Instead of format that gives us a variety of choices, the app features “headlines” and a sort of “front page.” So quaint. Perhaps stuff it into a metal box chained to a light pole and we can all put coins in it and take virtual copies home... Since in-demand coders wouldn’t be caught dead in old media, the owners of legacy news groups will have to innovate and try new methods. Success won’t come by shoehorning the old format into a digital package. Using this app is like having a tiny 2”x4” mini newspaper that I cant even use to line the cat box when I’m done.
Democracy dies in darkness. That says it all.
Not as good a news source as I used to think, but I might be more discerning in my old age. And who ya gonna turn to, anyways ? WaPo is the best available, warts and all. She is my baseline for trueing the crazies that the aggregators offer me.
The Washington Post allowed me to read my high school friend Jamal’s voice about his beloved country Saudi Arabia from an adult point of view and how it had changed since Our Culver Summer School days. Jamal was one of my best friends when I was a young innocent naive girl who believed as Jamal did about the World. Thank you for Allowing the World to know my dear beloved friend Jamal. All who love you miss you daily and we hold you close in Our Hearts and Hear Your Wisdom in Our Souls.
The work and dedication of the Post’s reporters as well as their contributing writers are essential to keeping America free. And, the First Amendment of our sacred Constitution is FIRST for a reason—no voice shall be silenced; no thought or opinion disregarded; no perspective discarded. Let the light of discourse and debate burn brightly, so democracy will never “Die in Darkness”.
Top notch reporting at a time when that’s never been more important.
