It has been about 5 months into my subscription and think it is great. Wonderful and helpful information about the markets, economy and more.
Excellent! I have sampled both newspapers and several other news services' downloads. This is by far the best. I thought the Wall Street Journal was only about finances, I was wrong. It is great news. Granted it is conservative in nature. If that offends you go to the liberal alternative that is offered. The reader is outstanding. His first person narrative gives one the impression of conversing with a well informed colleague who you have no desire to interrupt. In addition to the 5 issues a week of the Journal, you also get the Weekend edition which is a ?lifestyle? type supplement that discusses wines, movies, fashion, ? Definitely worth your time.
I have been listening to the WSJ on Audible.com for several months now, and I really enjoy it. But there is just one minor flaw -- as previous reviewer Warren pointed out: the editorial occupied too much real estate. I certainly don?t mind conservative viewpoints, and I sometimes do tune to the Fox channel. But, as I would imagine, most people probably listen to WSJ morning read on their commute, thus getting more information about what has happened the previous day and what is going to happen today would be more important than listening to some more conservative commentaries. So, it would be great if the editorial can be shortened or moved to the end.
An excellent one hour presentation of news. Well read, the stories covered are informative and often provide material not available on the headlines of Yahoo and Google. I also enjoy the Weekend Edition, particularly the vacation and wine reviews. One major dislike, the editorials are intolerable. While I don't mind the conservative bias, they've become little more than repetitive RNC commercials, and thus offer no information value. I would move them to the end or blend in some editorial content not written by Mr. Rove.
The Wall Street Journal audio edition provides a good selection of the top business news daily in an unabridged format. My only complaint is the editorial section of the program. Most of the opinions are highly political and always from the Republican perspective. It would be okay if the opinions were more balanced and from both sides. Besides that, it would be nice if there was an extended edition with more stories.
