The news about the News

Eliana Johnson and Chris Stirewalt love the news business but they hate a lot of what’s happening to it these days. Using their decades of experience in print, digital and TV news they tell the story behind the stories, always on the lookout for bias, sloppy reporting and, well, just plain wretched journalism. Every week they help you to be a better, smarter news consumer.

Please enjoy a compilation of a few of our favorite stories from this past year while you’re doom scrolling on your couch in a pool of leftovers. We will be back next week!
