Push notifications to share things?

The news is almost all pop culture stuff. In the rare circumstance I find a news alert appealing I always find a reason to hate the app. Pre-roll video ads, fluff stories, and the latest irksome feature is sending me push notifications of an exciting headline, saying "watch this event live now" but what they mean is "turn on your tv because it's not streaming in the app. but first, share this misleading headline with a friend so they too can open the app to not find what you're pushing." Very annoying. Going straight to news websites gives a better experience.

App is is too politically biased

I love how it just gives me quick headlines a few times every day (I have notifications enabled) and then I get to choose whether or not I want more information. If so, I click onto it and it brings me to the app. If not, I don't have to deal with it. I always feel like I'm up to date on the news that I'm interested in though. And with kids, that's saying a lot, because I refuse to turn on the news on TV.

Always There...

This app is really reliable, I trust that just about anything of important news is there when I start up the app, and the content is always professionally brought to you by nobody better than CNN, great job!!
