    Ok, but why can't I open and read some of the stories. All they have is the headlines.

    After years of the same old news, tainted from the left and the right, it is so refreshing to get honest, straightforward, reliable reporting!

    Since videos are the number one entertainment for me in this I can only give it 2 stars since videos hadn't worked in years.
