Q Tips

NPR related comments welcomed.

There is obviously no shortage of material when it comes to NPR misreporting.

But NPR "non-reporting" is a veritable gold mine.

For example, how about the Katherine Gun issue?

NPR did not "cover" her story until 2004 (the year after she blew the whistle) and even then, it was in the context of her being brought up on charges for releasing secret information in a commentary by Daniel Ellsberg.

NPR has "failed to report on" so many important stories over the past decade that it is quite clear that there is more involved than simple negligence.

Back in the old days (say, pre-1998) NPR had some very good investigative reporters. It's hard to believe they all disappeared over night.

More likely that the management policy regarding what CAN and CANNOT be covered changed.

What NPR leaves out is far more damning than anything they report on, IMHO.
