I once was a faithful listener to NPR

Not anymore

The host Steve something I believe was interviewing Jason Crow.

Host just kept pushing things like:

"What harm is there calling Hunter Biden as a witness?"

"a lot say withholding military aide from Ukraine had no affects on it's military"

Yes, like every other human endeavor it has it's problems, but I won't throw the baby out with the bath water.

3. Steve Inskeep is the usual

jerk on the am news. But there are several who are offshoots of Maura Liasson who is really awful. Inskeeps' long ago claim to fame was getting thrown out of Trafficant's (remember that schlepp?) office while recording.

It's about all we get for news on the radio around here in ruralville. But I also get weather and regional news unlike commercial radio where there's 60 seconds at the top of the hour and that's it.

Trade offs. I just turn the volume down when that jerk comes on, he's like the chuck todd of radio.
