Drains Battery

We USED to love it. Not sure what happened with this app, but after exhaustive trial-and-error to find out why my mother’s phone battery was draining so quickly, I found that this abc news app was the culprit - The battery usage amount would be exactly the standby amount. I deleted the app, and the problem was solved. Then all of a sudden, I had the same problem with MY phone - I deleted the app, and the battery life was once again back to normal. Is there something perhaps in an update that is keeping the background activity on even though all the app and phone options have it turned off? Please find and fix - otherwise, we really have enjoyed this app - would love to have it back on our phones…without draining the battery.

Biased Reporting

Can’t watch ABC News because of its obvious biased reporting by Jonathan Karl, White House Chief Correspondent, in favor of Republican politicians. You can literally see him sneer when he talks to or about Democrats. When he interviews a Republican politician he gets those puppy dog eyes and his tail goes between his legs. Hey, ABC, find someone who can actually deliver the news without appearing biased!! And one thing you will never see…Jonathan Karl talking war crimes with the previous occupants of the White House. He’s too busy making sure everyone forgets about the obvious war crimes committed by George Bush and his administration. The same war crimes we are still dealing with today!

Current and Relevant

This ABC News app allows me to quickly scan through for the stories I want to follow. The articles are neither too long nor too short. ABC is more conservative than I am, but its reporting always seems deliberately evenhanded. I respect their efforts to treat contending and incompatible political viewpoints fairly.
