I have had this app since it first came out... to the day almost and I am going to delete it after this comment.
At first, it was an excellent "non-biased" news app with good articles. That is not the case now. I don't like "slanted" news to promote an editor or reporter's personal agenda. All I require are facts representing both sides and I will make a determination. I don't need one sided facts missing other pertinent facts or details that I know have been left out to "steer" me towards a particular political agenda or idealism. If I need that, I will watch notorious politically slanted network news for my political indoctrination and programming. I don't want to read politically charged articles that are anti or pro Obama, anti or pro abortion, anti or pro gun, anti or pro NSA, etc. I do not feel the need for "political programming" or to be "swayed" towards someone else's beliefs or agenda. I want facts, both sides, and non-biased news. This concept has been absent the past few months with ProPublica, and I am just not interested anymore.
I will check back, periodically to see if this has changed.
Thankful for ProPublica
So glad they are around; it really seems like they have been front-and-center, if not leading the charge, during this latest resurgence of true investigative journalism. Far too many publications these days seem content to whitewash their stories and allow both sides to give their very skewed and very specious views, all in an effort to appear "balanced" and not offend some of their reader's delicate political sensibilities. The truth does not care about politics nor does it care that human nature often makes it so only a small percentage are truly ready to hear said truths. Please continue to do what you have done so well and continue to trust your readers' intelligence and their appetite for the truth.
Pro Publica has combined forces with other respected news outlets to accomplish long form investigative reporting. Investigative reporting has been cut from most news organizations for many reasons including cost and owner operator concerns. Long form reporting is what is needed in a world where connecting the dots can span the world.
