It probably would be, if I could remain interested.
I haven't listened to others, but I will try. Maybe they use different people, but I kind of doubt it.
The reader makes this very dry material even more painful. I had hoped to use the WSJ as a way to catch up on the news, since I spend so much time listening to audio books instead of listening to NPR. It's just not as interesting nor as engaging as NPR. The reader doesn't speak in a conversational way, but as bursts of information. It could be done better by a reader who finds the stories interesting; this guy seems so bored and reads only slightly better than the automated telephone "operators" at my bank when they repeat back the numbers I have entered.
Probably not for me. I couldn't sit through the mechanical-sounding reading.
I hope the presentation gets better soon. It would be handy to be able to keep up with the news this way, if only I could remain focused on what's being said.
