Open Thread - Weekend

NPR related comments welcomed.

The portrayal of the Liberty crew as emotionally crippled nutters who won't get over their obsessive conspiracy theories in the face of official disavowals really pissed me off this morning.

I regret starting to listen to NPR again. Every single story is either full of lies, obvious spin, distortion, patronizingly simplistic (and erroneous) "conventional wisdom" or the infamous NPR trivial high/lowbrow cultural fluff.

I don't get it; I never feel frustrated of less-well informed after an hour of the BBC, even with its increasingly pro-Israel spin. But I feel like NPR is working to de-educate me each and every hour.

( not NPR related, but since you metioned Finkelstein in an earlier thread... )

He was denied tenure.
