Visit Me at NPR

I occasionally comment on NPR stories at the NPR website. Over on the sidebar I have a link that will take you to my page at NPR. From there you can go right down the page to "RECENT ACTIVITY" and see what stories I've posted on. For example, I've most recently commented on yesterday's report from Guy Raz which gave no context to the Pentagon's complaints about the video of the captured US soldier, and then on this morning's Planet Monkey shenanigans in "explaining" wages - apparently to what NPR thinks is an audience of morons.

"explaining" wages - apparently to what NPR thinks is an audience of morons.

as the old saying goes, "it takes one to explain something to one."

Planet Money is an embarrassment even by NPR standards.

With all the very knowledgeable (and out of work) people out there in the financial industry, why they have people like Adam "We want unemployment to go down, not up" Davidson and David "in an invigorating climate it is also easier to be honest and sober and self-controlled than in a more enervating one" Kestenbaum doing their reporting is a mystery wrapped in an enigma buried in Conundrum Tomb.

I'd love to sit in on a discussion of "wages" among NPR staff. All that wordage and not one about the 405 x average worker's salary for CEOs.
