    Time to update your format. News on the hour. Ditch the 30. Too many commercial breaks, simulcast on youtube live to offset lost revenue. Too lefty/liberal. There are no right leaning voices on your program. Very frustrating!! Therefore your narratives grow linear/2D and unchallenged. Stick to local and Canada. You have proven time and time again an inability to understand US media/politics and continue to spread mistruths and horribly naïve assessments because of it.

    After two weeks away I was shocked and appalled that the news I heard on the hour and the half hour included the usual President Trump hate, but nothing whatsoever- nothing at all on potentially the biggest scandal in Canadian history WE! and this would be the third ethics breach by the PM. Shocking lack of Canadian news.
