Fact Over Fiction
I live in Japan and with the constant threats being thrown around by China, South Korea, and North Korea, it gets tiring listening to news outlets that are only in it for the ratings. With Asia News Weekly Steve presents the news with facts that don't give you nightmares that will scar you for life. He'll also go so far as to give his personal opinion on the situation as he sees after many years of personal experience living in the region. If something happens in Asia, this is where I go for my news.

I tune in every week for the news. I like that it's balanced and the host shares his opinion. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to share mine with him so he can read it in the comment section at the end of the show.
