Fox News Recommends NPR over Fox News

April 27th, 2010

And yet, the writer who did so seems to still have a job. This article on Fox’s web site recommends the “5 Best Apple iPad Apps,” which, interestingly, includes the NPR app but not the Fox News app. Although, if you read the review, it actually does still have a Fox spin to it: it lauds the NPR add for achieving the “impossible” task of “turning sometimes boring content into an addictive experience.” I guess that’s how the writer kept his job. As for the list itself, it’s pretty tame and limited for what it is; you get the feeling that the writer has downloaded maybe a few dozen apps and simply made a quick list of their own faves. I was going to say, “seriously, they could do better than this,” but then I remembered.

    This list is by Clayton Morris who happens to do a podcast with his childhood best friend that I listen to every week called The Grizzly Bear Egg Cafe. It’s generally a show about comic books, movies and gadgets (and waaaaaaaaay too much about LOST), but since the iPad came out it has turned into “Clayton tells us once again how much it rocks.”

    He actually spent several minutes in last week’s episode gushing about the NPR app, and how it really is the standard by which all news apps for the iPad should be judged.

    Overall I agree with you, the list is merely from what has used, but his love of the NPR app is genuine, that I can assure you.
