24. Nothing but RW political theater for the knuckle draggers/'baggers
"Defunding" would amount to losing 3% of their total budget which isn't really material.

Besides, while still a worthwhile news organization, NPR's commentary and opinion pieces (and some reportage) have been steadily drifting right for many years. Examples:

- NPR's official policy to never use the word "torture" when describing our torturing of captives.

- Reporter Anne Garrels' on-air endorsement of torture as a legitimate way of getting intelligence.

- Bob Edwards' firing.

- The (short-lived) introduction of martial music beds.
