This app appears to be a well disguised vehicle of the Fox News Propoganda machine. It carefully selects various news sources that include objective and left leaning organizations but selects quotes that lead to the inevitable right wing talking points as being the bottom line news. All news/commentary is narrated by Newsy narrators, which permits complete assembly of "information" presenting that right wing perspective. For example, stories such as Ron Paul's radical proposal to eliminate something like 6 major cabinet level agencies are treated as being worthy of serious consideration, while Obama's Jobs bill isn't even mentioned in a narrative claiming that there are just opposing viewpoints about job creation and nothing specific on the table. If you agree with these talking points, then this is another right oriented commentary source for active consideration. I personally can't stomach the bias, no matter what selective quotes from trusted sources are included in the presentation to lead stories to their preconceived conclusions - am deleting this app.

Too much!
I understand the need for ads to keep the service free. It was bad enough when some of the ads were embedded and unavoidable. Sometimes, in one session, you had to sit through the same sorry ad 5 or 6 times. The banner ads that now flash and cycle during a video clip are unforgiveable. If you don't want us to watch, just do an audiocast.
