I have been using this app for a number of years now. The one thing that I find the most frustrating is that the order in which the stories appear does not make sense. Shouldn't the most recent ones (including those with recent updates) appear at the top, in chronological order —most recent articles followed chronologically by older articles.

Updated 6 days ago. Since then, every story or weather notification I click on goes nowhere- the app doesn't open like it should. The app is running more than normal in the background & using unusual amounts of battery and is causing instability. I don't know what they did but they need to fix it asap.

As someone moving into the area, I was looking for local news sources. This is an extremely biased news outlet. Especially with contentious issues coming up in elections I wanted to read both sides of the argument, but the reporters and editors here have clearly made up their minds on various issues and aren't afraid to show their bias at the expense of the truth. Incredibly disappointing.
