Sometimes very frustration

I listen to both the WSJ and NYT editions, editorials aside, I prefer the NYT thanks to the simple fact that it actually has more content. The WSJ makes some odd content choices and then reads the entire article vs the abridged articles in the NYT. It has been awhile since I've read the paper version of the WSJ, but one of the things I liked about it was its concise articles and business/market news. The audible version doesn't cover the business/market well at all, nor are its articles concise.

Overall it isn't a bad listen, but I do find myself wanting to hurry the reader along quite a bit. I also probably won't renew it for another month though.
