Was it you who called Media Matters yesterday and brought up NPR? For those of you who missed it, Bob Jensen (Professor of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin) gave a beautifully concise explanation to why NPR suffers from lot of the same problems as corporate media suffer from. Over all it was a great show.

Hi ulf,

Yes that was me. Thanks for posting the link to McChesney's show. BTW Jensen has good article at TomPaine.com a which I think reflects on aspects of his comments about NPR.

To repeat, thanks for the link. Very helpful, very thorough, and very truthful. Bob Jensen speaks the truth, pure and simple. Good show, Mytwords: mighty words are getting around!

Here's a link to a wonderfully clear, well-argued piece by Noam Chomsky, about why Bush's policies are so mafia-like:
