My Daily Political News (Dummified)

I love this app. Everyday I come back home from I go in my room to change into my pajamas and I've made it a habit to turn on the daily report from the Recount. I love the fact that they make it so I can actually make sense of political news (cause I surely have no idea what politics is all about and would love to stay away from listening to the Trump drama for more than 45 minutes). All in all a well worthy download!

It’s hard to watch some of these news stories

But I so appreciate that there is a news source that doesn’t pull punches on what’s happening in our world. We must stay informed in these times when it seems almost every American principle is being threatened by self-serving, ever-powerful leadership at the highest levels of our government. The Recount highlights all that is good and bad happening in politics all around the globe. Thank you!

Greatest App for quick political updates

This app is phenomenal. I use it everyday for daily current event updates and recommend it to all of my friends. The videos are edited so well and they provide a unique take on quickly digesting politics and world news under 60 seconds. With so many news outlets out there, the recount makes it the easiest to consume media.
