Want decent media? Thank NPR for airing O'Connor's dictatorship comment!
The thread with full story about the NPR interview is here:
<http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... >

The NPR interview included -->
closed by saying (paraphrase) that it takes a long time to become a dictatorship but better to stop the slide at the beginning than the end.

Call them:
NPR Staff Directory (202) 513-2000
Listener Services (202) 513-3232

The last time someone called me for a donation for my local NPR affiliate I went off on a long rant about National Propaganda Radio and how they had abandoned our nation by not reporting on the theft of the 2000 and 2004 elections, how they did not adequately or fairly cover international issues....

I told them I would donate my money to support truthout.org and BradBlog and publications like Harpers and Mother Jones.

I've used the stick on them.

Now I'll use a carrot.

7. for long time listeners
it's the slide that is upsetting. i used to love npr, but they have not completely resisted the pressure. since katrina, tho, i notice that they are better.
