Ratings and Reviews
Wash Post Classic app is much better then this
As a new digital subscriber I gave this app a try first but this is “curated content” and provides only partial access to the articles one is paying for— I say this because the only way to find the “buried” articles is to use the app’s mediocre search functionality, which doesn’t surface the most recent articles first. So when I input “Capital Weather Gang” which I am sure a lot of people search for often (and subscribe for), I not only was unable to find their main page, but I could tell that results weren’t sorting from newest to oldest, and there was no way for me to toggle that option. There is also no way for me to browse on topic tabs the way I can on other newspaper apps. I deleted this app immediately and downloaded Washington Post Classic, which works perfectly, but I wanted to come back and leave this review for fellow subscribers to the WP. The pretty images aren’t worth it, in my opinion, if you want fast access to the most recent news on topics you want to select rather then “wild cards” that a digital strategist thinks will interest you.
I have been a subscriber to WaPo for a couple of years after decades of subscribing to NYTimes (and others). It is an excellent paper with a long, proud tradition of investigative reporting. My only criticism is that the coverage of Israel/Palestine, Syria, etc. (the Middle East in general) is biased and misleading. The reporting is uniformly Pro Zionist. There is a Pro Western take on all conflicts and the reporting on our foreign involvements generally parrots the Pentagon and CIAs version of our many invasions and/or support of our "allies' " invasions, the unimaginable brutality of the KSA/USA led campaign in Yemen being but one example.
Reporting on domestic issues is excellent, the investigation of candidate Roy Moore in Alabama being a prime example of such deeply researched and hard hitting journalism for which the WaPo has justifiably been respected and celebrated, especially ever since the Watergate era.
I hope that WaPo might hire a reporter who has the humanity of a Nicholas Kristoff or Chris Hedges, for example, to cover Israel/Palestine.
Less dramatic but still overly dramatic
The Washington post is not as bad as cable news or USA Today, but it still takes itself a little too seriously. “Democracy dies in darkness”?really? I can tolerate a steady stream of high-drama stories: anti gun articles and “look at how bad society has become” articles; but I would appreciate it if wapo would spend some more time putting high drama news in perspective with either a historical/cultural baseline or statistics. If so, we would find (for example) that the most severe impact of poor gun policy is not mass shootings but gun-empowered-intimidation. We would find that our government spends billions on minor (but very dramatic) problems, while ignores other major ones. This would be responsible journalism. I would also appreciate more articles on how to endure the trumpian age rather than be reminded about every possible reason to feel bad about it. I would pay more for this service.
