Reaching Out

I can finally sleep easy tonight. Giles Snyder informed me on ATC at the top of the hour news summary that "President Bush reached out to the Muslim world today" at the General Assembly. That's so comforting. I can't help but think of the 14,000 Iraqis whom this administration has reached out and touched lately. Perhaps Snyder meant to say "put out of reach"?

I only recently discovered this blog, and I'm glad to see it. I've been pointing out to people for several years now that NPR is not the 'left-wing news' that it portrays itself as. Oddly, they generally disagree, and insist that NPR really is liberal programming.

I'm surprised you didn't mention the NPR story about The Little Red Songbook, in which they totally bashed unionists as lazy communists just looking for a handout, and unions as little more than a quaint relic of the past, all the while the refrain from "Hallelujah, I'm a Bum" playing in the background. Made me sick.

Anyway, it's nice to see someone out there who is spreading the word that NPR is as much a tool of it's corporate sponsors as any 'news' organization! Thanks!
