Ok..I know that NPR is managed by a right wing nut (since about 2006) that was

suppose to bring unbiased news to the program..but I was traveling with my son in law and he was listening to NPR and I didnt believe my ears at all the Obama bashing,all the interviews with all these right wing congressmen etc...I mean they only gave Obama credit for two accomplishments,the stimulus,and the healthare bill..and went on and on about Obama picking the fight with Congress and it was awful......So to me it proved that the millions was touching the Public Radio hosts and with all the one sided opinions and bias guest interviews...Ok so its early no big deal? Right?? Wrong,if big money gets away with this kind of Bull Shit can we really counter?....The right wing will be tipping the scales with about a billion within just a few weeks...The interviews I heard were obviously a put on with people posing a voters and even a so called Democratic voter saying that with Romney's business experience he was will to give him a try....Folks Im worried that the big bucks is winning...And this is pubic radio..So has the corporate mafia now added public radio to their media ownership??

1. There have been several CEOs of

NPR since 2006, the latest named only a couple of months ago, Gary Knell, I think, from Seseme Street. But as to treating Rmoney like a normal person and bad talking The President, I agree with you.

I used to try to listen to NPR and it just wasnt worth it. Too much information that was not factual. Seems like it's not changed much.

3. They're running scared of the GOP and getting money from corporate sponsors. It's to be expected.

4. It was horrifying to discover what had happened to NPR years ago. Had to turn away.

So, so damned sad, especially in the years of hearing right-wing Congress a-holes and radio spokespeople refer to NPR as "leftie" for so very long after they actually controlled it, by regularly cutting funding, then bitching and whining about it until they crumbled.

Hearing the voices there now is hideous. Conservatives pretending to be legitimate. Don't put yourself through it.
