Recently Mytwords has commented on NPR's ingrained habit of ignoring the United States' own key historical role in their foreign news pieces (particularly in Central and South American coverage). But no news series has so perfectly captured this bias and ahistoricism as the week-long investigation of present-day Russia. I have been irritated by it beyond belief. Is NPR ever willing to oppose standard American elite political "conventional wisdom" (ie, Council of Foreign Affairs, Brookings, AEI type thinking) in its reports?
