Ignoring the superficiality and stupidity of the piece, the way Steve Inskeep introduces the report speaks volumes about the ideology at NPR. He begins the segment with
"Next, let's look at an effort to improve the odds of surviving the war on terror."Consider a few aspects of this little Inscreepy® statement:
- "An effort"
- "Surviving the war on terror"
It really is an amazing statement. I can only guess that Inskeep was wearing his nifty DHS Integrated Statement System suit for journalists: put it on, pull the right (far right) tab and everything you say will dovetail nicely with the policies and goals of both the Department of Defense and The Department of Heimat Security.
