  • Liberal Opinions Not Just Facts

    Beware The Skimm has liberal views. I want just the facts of the news without your opinion. It’s sad that Americans can’t trust the news anymore. I will cancel my subscription.
  • Super liberal

    After seeing this on the Rachael Ray show, I thought I should give it a try—a fun easy way to start my day. However, the material does not expose it’s audience to multiple layers of media, arts, and entertainment. It’s truly created for a liberal audience.
  • Does not sync well

    I like the light, breezy way in which the news is introduced each day. I know this turns some people away, but there are plenty of links to original sources in take a good, deep dive if you wish. The calendar features is great, as well as the audio features that are provided. It’s really well worth it.
  • Thorough

    It’s a great way to stay in the know and keep updated on current events. If you subscribe you also get access to calendars and podcasts. I read it daily.

    I have been trying for months to remove the skimm calendar that is linked to my phone and it has so many unnecessary things on it.

    This subscription is paramount to my daily SPF. I’m obsessed and look forward to the sarcastic witty commentary that keeps me informed and up to date. I love the layout and having the opportunity to scratch the surface of some issues or do a deep dive, whatever I have time for. Oh, and if you haven’t started listening to their girl power podcast kick yourself and then start from the beginning :) so many nuggets of wisdom and advice and a good way to start the morning commute! Thank you for this, it makes my day a little brighter!! ❤️
  • Crashes every time I open it.

    CNN sends free news every morning and it costs nothing. Why pay?
