NPR 'On The Media' Show Devotes Hour to 'Slaying the Fox Monster' Talk

February 12th, 2021 5:23 PM

National Public Radio has a serious, red-hot loathing of Fox News. The latest demonstration was the February 5 episode of the very tilted weekly show On The Media, produced by WNYC-FM in New York and airing on more than 400 public radio stations across America. The episode was boldly titled “Slaying the Fox Monster.”


MSNBC: ‘Right Wing Media’ ‘Brainwashed’ People to Believe Lies

November 29th, 2016 12:38 AM
The liberal media threw a proverbial hissy fit Monday in response to President-Elect Donald Trump’s dubious claim that millions of votes were cast illegally. While seeming pretend that Trump would be the first president ever to tell a lie, public-radio Bob Garfield went on a long winded tirade, on MSNBC’s All In, railing against the “Right wing media.” “The people who get it and we at the…

'Very Rational' NPR? Trump's Like 'A Raving Meth Head With a Machete'

May 24th, 2016 7:20 AM
National Public Radio sells itself as an oasis of civility on a radio dial polluted with harsh editorializing. In December, NPR CEO Jarl Mohn was asked by CNN’s Brian Stelter how they were covering Trump: “Our place in the food chain of information and journalism is to just be very rational, to be calm, to report the facts, not to stake out a position. We don’t take editorial positions of any…

CNN Guest Excoriates Stelter, Media for Hypocritical, 'Repulsive' WHCD

May 2nd, 2016 4:33 PM
CNN's Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter dedicated much of his Sunday show to the aftermath of the White House Correspondents Dinner and included far-left New York public radio host Bob Garfield tearing into media members like Stelter for attending such a "repulsive" "sham" that's a "disgrace" to the idea of an independent press.

NPR’s On the Media Show Mocks Glenn Beck and TheBlaze

May 25th, 2013 11:53 PM
With its frequent overt bias, NPR’s weekend media show On the Media makes NPR’s news magazine shows like Morning Edition appear thoroughly objective by comparison. It is so hopelessly biased that shows to explore the question of whether NPR was biased were themselves overwhelmingly biased. More recently, it deemed the issue of media coverage of butcher Kermit Gosnell’s trial to be too…

Your Tax Dollars at Work: NPR’s Scant Gosnell Trial Coverage

April 17th, 2013 3:58 PM
As Newsbusters has detailed again and again, coverage by dominant news organizations of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial has been almost non-existent. Taxpayer-subsidized public radio is no exception, even after the issue of non-coverage gained widespread attention last week. As the fifth week of the Gosnell trial continues (it opened March 18), NPR still has not devoted a single piece to the…

NPR Host Smears Romney As 'Michael Vick of Presidential Candidates

January 15th, 2012 10:19 PM
On Saturday, the NPR-distributed show On The Media recycled “The Story That Continues to Dog Romney" – a 1983 anecdote where Mitt Romney strapped his Irish setter Seamus to the top of his car in a carrier on a trip to Canada. Somehow, On The Media host Bob Garfield found it wry to compare Romney to Michael Vick, the NFL quarterback who pled guilty to hanging or drowning six to eight dogs. “So…

NPR Hosts: Employees Here Are 'Overwhelmingly Liberal' - But We're Not

March 12th, 2011 2:50 PM
In response to this week's shameful exposure of bias at NPR, a couple of its hosts on Friday had an on air discussion about whether or not the radio network does indeed have a political leaning. Shortly after "On the Media" host Bob Garfield said, "If you were to somehow poll the political orientation of everybody in the NPR news organization and all of the member stations, you would find an…

On NPR, N.Y. Times Editor Bill Keller Defends the 'Value' of WikiLeaks

December 8th, 2010 1:15 PM
On NPR's weekend show On The Media (produced by radio station WNYC), New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller reacted badly to NPR's Bob Garfield suggesting Julian Assange of WikiLeaks was a "looter" or a smasher of windows. Keller insisted the document dump has "more value" than that metaphor, that the dump is "absolutely a graduate seminar" on international relations. …

NPR Isn't 'Left Wing,' It 'Leads to a More Informed Electorate' and 'B

November 9th, 2010 5:07 PM
The public-radio show "On The Media" explored the debate over defunding public broadcasting on Saturday -- but utterly stepped around any evidence from certain conservative media watchdog groups that NPR or PBS have a liberal bias. Host Brooke Gladstone perfectly characterized how the NPR elite arrogantly conceive of their mission: some say they have a liberal bias, but they are merely seekly…
