Ratings and Reviews
Up to date news and gossip 24/7
What I appreciate about Sky News items is the length of each item that are not too long. Also, for further reading on a particular news story, there are easy to use highlighted links taking me to similar topics. This is especially the case for Brexit, World News and Politics. Also the short videos bring the news stories to life on my iPhone and iPad.
Sky News is so much more interesting and engaging than any other news app and their reporters get right to the scene of a natural disaster, for example, when others sit in the safety of their studio. An example is Yemen and Syria where their foreign correspondents are literally with the soldiers on the front line. This makes their reporting credible which is a value I think has been lost to other mediocre news sources.
Sky News app is easy to use too with so much choice that I could spend hours and hours reading different news stories. This is good providing a breadth and depth to the headline stories of day. If like me you like credible and accurate news then Sky News app is for you.
Great app but a few issues!
I have been using sky news for years and it’s great. They are always the first to get the news whilst the rest straddle begins and often seam to wait for sky news to confirm things before posting themselves! However... one of the most annoying things is when they make a breaking news statement it often won’t open or doesn’t lead to anything initially. This is something that should be looked into. For example “ Bruce Forsyth dies at his...” so you tap and go to open the link and it goes to the main news articles and there is nothing. You have to wait 5/10 minutes for something to show. It is not often it does happen but it should be perfect 100% of the time.
When Sky started 30 years ago it presented the news. Now it presents the news with its own opinions and rarely in a balanced way. It seems to be about sensationalism instead of truth.
Dermot Murnaghan can be very arrogant in his interviewing, sitting back, arms folded. It’s unprofessional.
The only person I find 100% professional is Ian King. He presents a very good programme. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and polite.
The media is not very well thought of at the moment and Sky should take the opportunity of turning this around. Brexit seems to have encouraged this reporting behaviour. In a Brexit report, always interview a Leaver and a Remainer be it the public or MPs. The recent Nissan reporting didn’t give a balanced viewpoint. It was heavily on ‘because of Brexit’. It took Andrew Neil to provide the true picture. Many of the public actually believe everything they see/hear. It’s your responsibility to see that you never report anything that doesn’t have absolute fact, not opinions, facts.
I doubt my comments will be taken into account but I and others feel very strongly about this and you need to hear honest feedback.
