PEDANTIC NARRATOR

I've subscribed to the Wall Street Journal for the last 5 years and I'm generally pleased with the content; however, over the last few years, the editorials have become especially annoying as they have become fierce right-wing polemics. The narrator's voice and tone changes when he reads an editorial and sound like a principal's lecture to a naughty school boy.

Further, the narrator seems to feel obligated to be sure that any discussion of a company, such as "Apple INCORPORATED" as an example, is stressed so that the listener knows that he is talking about the computer maker and not a fruit vendor. When he reads a section which has many quotes, he repeatedly says "QUOTE, UNQUOTE" over and over as he encounters quoted material even in the same sentence. Compared to the narrator for the Audible New York Times selection, the Wall Street Journal narrator has some work to do to get a satisfactory rating from me.
