Über-liberal National Public Radio losing leaders to sex scandals

December 11, 2017

Various men in power at National Public Radio (NPR) have stepped down over the past few months in light of multiple accusations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate workplace conduct.

President cutting off tax dollars to National Propaganda Radio and Propaganda Broadcasting System

March 20, 2017

President Donald Trump’s first on page 11 labeled, “America First,” ends federal funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) — which, in turn, supports National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).
The left is howling, and local public radio stations are already campaigning to oppose the move. Democrats are spamming supporters with fundraising emails. Yet there are several reasons that ending federal funding for NPR and PBS is a great idea.

NPR a taxpayer funded arm for Obama’s re-election campaign

August 3, 2012

National Public Radio (NPR) is apparently moving from news to full-time, taxpayer-funded Super PAC-style advertising for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. That is apparent from today’s report by Ari Shapiro on Obama’s campaign appearances in Ohio, where the president–who maintains that Republican rival Mitt Romney may be a “felon”–launched a series of new and false attacks on Romney’s proposed tax cuts.

NPR loves dumping fuel on the fires of Racism

April 11, 2012

National Public Radio is attempting to turn the horrific Tulsa shootings into a story of systemic racism and collective guilt–and citing opposition to President Barack Obama as evidence of racial prejudice in Oklahoma.
On today’s Morning Edition, host Steve Inskeep interviewed historian Scott Ellsworth, who attempted to place the Apr. 6 shootings–in which three black people were killed and two injured–in the context of a massive race riot that took place in 1921, nearly a century ago.
As for more recent evidence of racism, Ellsworth cited the state’s “conservative” political leanings and its vote against Barack Obama in 2008

NPR stands for National Prejudice Radio

March 21, 2012

A reminder from the mainstream, tax-supported media: if you oppose ObamaCare, that may be because you are a white racist who hates our black president.
That’s the gist of Shankar Vedantam’s story this morning on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, which reports on a new study published by Michael Tesler in the American Journal of Political Science.
Tesler presents data “that suggest that the racial attitudes of ordinary Americans have shaped both how they feel about the health care overhaul, and how intense those feelings are.”
In particular:
Tesler finds that blacks have become increasingly supportive of health care under Obama’s watch. Among whites, Tesler finds a sharp divide between whites who have a liberal outlook on racial issues compared with those who have a conservative outlook on racial issues.
Yet correlation does not imply causation, and the key to understanding the divisions over ObamaCare is not race but politics.
As UCLA political scientist Tim Groseclose notes in Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind, the most important factor in political conflict in the United States is ideology–the liberal versus conservative divide.

National Public Radio attacks Herman Cain as a ‘Minstrel’

November 16, 2011

National Public Radio proved a long time ago it disdains black conservatives. Remember when NPR’s Nina Totenberg launched the unproven sexual harassment charges against Clarence Thomas?

NPR doesn’t even like black liberals who appear on Fox News: They canned Juan Williams. The sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain aren’t ruining him as quickly as the media hoped, so on Nov. 11, NPR viciously attacked Cain for being an enemy of blacks and a “minstrel” to white conservatives.
