MacDailyNews Take: If the fact that the newly-iPadified MacDailyNews app (version 2.2, released April 24*) didn’t make FOX News’ top five list doesn’t blow your mind, then, for some people, NPR’s presence might do the trick. wink

  1. I’ll be the first proud liberal to compliment Fox “News” on having the sense to recognize that NPR app. Totally aside from politics, it is a really great app– unique but intuitive navigation, beautiful design, full access to content, really thoughtful approach to adapting a century-old medium (radio) to a cutting-edge platform– and having it all ready to go and working beautifully on Day 1.

  2. “Clayton Morris isn’t really “Fox News.” His podcast is always filled with lefty guests”
