1. same reason they didn't cover ANY of it
and you can include NPR

it was all buried intentionally, there's no doubt.

and they still won't cover it.

so forget them. they're just another bush.

be the media as best you can.

4. I heard them on NPR too, they were all about tin foil hats
and conspiracy theories

they were miserable, before, during, and after the election.

I'll check out that freepress page, not sure if i've seen it. thanks.

5. NPR= National Republican Radio -all strawman 100%
they set it up and knock it down every time.

Every story goes like this:

Is there a problem with____"blank"?

Hmmm we sure are concerned here at NPR.

Let's all look into this!
(next they present a weak whacko story)-
...get three or four Corporate supporting Repubelees to argue against it
...get one and a half weak "liberals" with wavering voices to counter that---
...conclusion is ALWAYS it's something like:
"We thought there was a problem, but now we knkow there wasn't, isn't it nice we now know the truth!
We thought ___"blank" was bad but in reality it's good!
Wow, us liberal minded radio shows sure do get to the bottom of things every time now don't we! Let's pat ourselves on the back!

NOTICE the formula next time you listen -- each contraversial issue on NPR is a set up.
Seriously, don't take my word for it.
NPR was bought several years ago--it used to be good before that--

And also,
anyone notice this contesting "evolution" lately on NPR?
Where do you think the support for THAT comes from?

6. somebody needs to write a definitive analysis
of exactly how spin is done at NPR. It's much more subtle than Fox.
You've got a good handle on it. Your description is exactly how I experience the "tilt" factor with NPR.

"National Republican Radio"--you said it. And it's such a shame because it could be good. I used to listen to NPR as a way to pick up on the news and opinion while doing other things (driving for ex). There's a void there now, but I can't listen to it. They have sold out.

Maybe we should have an NPR watch group like the DU C-Span watch group? Or is it just too far gone, and not worth giving them feedback.

7. I wonder what Media Matters has to say about NPR lately
anyone check that site regularly?

I think they're the ones that broke the Gannon story?

I checked a while ago and they did have some info about election fraud being buried in the media. I'd love to know what their take is on NPR.

Someone mentioned that Bush planted a couple of cronies in high positions at NPR, but I can't find out who they are or if it's true.
