I am a fan of NPR but I appreciate what you're doing here and applaud you for doing so. I think most fans of NPR realize it's not perfect but it is still far better than most of the other even more corporately controlled sources out there. Kudos to you for trying to make them that much better.

Keep watching the watchers my friend.

Sunday AM's ME kept on putting the shiv to Hillary, as david welna had a lame account of her concession speech. He found the one audience member who would not support Obama, and went with that. He never mentioned the lengthy applause she got, repeatedly. And after Hillary had cried "Uncle!" ole sloppy welna was disappointed that she wasn't calling the shots as to her future involvement in an Obama presidency. The non-professional radio point of view is that even in defeat, Hillary has to be kicked around. I was quite surprised, however, that they didn't light into Bill as well; probably short on time. The juxtaposition of this, immediately following a laconic, treacly interview w/ lamar alexander (possible V.P. running mate for mcsame?-npr is very capcble of playing this role)was not coincidental.

Better than? Ummm, not by much in my estimation. In fact, I'd dare declare it merely more of the same dreck-ola.

Indeed, in many ways NPR's worse than the MSM Dreck-Ola, because Naturally Puffed-Up Radio pretends to be superior, while pulling the wool over the ears of the innocents. You have to penetrate the wool to realize the deception. Be wary!

Dreck-Ola is what it is, and we know it. NPR's sneaky. Don't be fooled!
