November 26, 2022 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ When National Public Radio appeals for donations, it explains its mission is “to create a more informed public — one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.” That’s fancy talk for one-sided propaganda.

October 1, 2021 by

By Tim Graham ~ Ramesh Ponnuru at National Review pointed out that NPR standards-and-practices guru Mark Memmott issued a new memo — a “guidance reminder” — instructing his taxpayer-funded staff how their language on abortion should not concede anything to “antiabortion groups.” It isn’t about objectivity.

January 23, 2018 by
