WashPost, NPR Hype Liberal Episcopal Cathedral Dean Preaching Gun Cont

December 17th, 2012 5:25 PM
An old journalistic saw about what's newsworthy goes a little something like this: "When a dog bites man, that's not a new story. Now a man bites a dog, that's a story." The idea is simple: News is something that is unusual, out of the ordinary, has a twist that makes it unexpected and shocking. There's nothing unexpected or shocking about a preacher in a mainline…

NPR Touts Adam Lambert's Version of Hell

May 22nd, 2012 6:36 AM
Gay "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert (touted by fans as "Glambert") knows he'll have a sympathetic ear at National Public Radio. On Sunday night's All Things Considered newscast, anchor Guy Raz promoted Lambert's latest album as a "great record." As the interview drew to an end, Raz must have tried his hardest to craft the softest, slightly…

NPR's Sunday Praise and Worship: Comparing Obama on Gays to Other Pres

May 14th, 2012 3:33 PM
On Sunday night’s All Things Considered, NPR weekend anchor Guy Raz brought on regular guest James Fallows (the former Jimmy Carter speechwriter and editor of U.S. News & World Report) for “a look behind the headlines” to put Obama’s gay-marriage proclamation in “context.” “I know you've been thinking a lot about this in a historical context…

NPR Anchor Lauds Atheist Author on Palm Sunday, Says He's Bought His T

April 3rd, 2012 6:58 AM
If it’s an important Christian occasion, you can predict National Public Radio will seek out an atheist expert. In 2008, NPR marked Good Friday by interviewing John Dominic Crossan, who believed the body of Jesus was not resurrected, but was perhaps eaten by wild dogs. On Palm Sunday, NPR found it was the perfect day for atheist scholar Bart Ehrman, who has a new book out titled "…

WaPo: NPR Insiders Furious NPR's 'Capitulating' to Fox News and Others

January 8th, 2011 10:32 AM
On Saturday, Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi found that NPR insiders are furious at the forced resignation of Ellen Weiss, the senior vice president for news who so controversially canned Juan Williams. The liberal arrogance of NPR was on full display, that they were the future of "democracy," and Fox News was clearly the enemy of democracy and an independent press: "…

Gay Sunday: NPR Celebrates 'Protestant Royalty' Coming Out of the Clos

November 15th, 2010 8:46 AM
On Sunday night's All Things Considered newscast, NPR anchor Guy Raz celebrated “Protestant royalty” coming out of the closet. Bishop Jim Swilley of a megachurch appropriately called The Church in the Now decided to reveal his sexual orientation because of the burst of gay-bullying publicity. Former CNN reporter Raz welcomed the change and how it must have been “incredibly…

NPR Compares Palin, Gingrich to Historic Anti-Semites, Sympathizes wit

September 6th, 2010 8:34 PM
National Public Radio is strongly urging America to get over its apparently rabid case of Islamophobia. On Sunday night's All Things Considered newscast, anchor Guy Raz played audio clips of Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin opposing the Ground Zero Mosque, and then launched into how much this resembles historic anti-Semitism: In his column today, New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof points out…

John Cusack on NPR: Laugh While Bush Ideology Destroys America

June 4th, 2008 6:59 AM
On Sunday, I mentioned that the Saturday night version of NPR’s All Things Considered was a pacifist’s dream. It was also a Bush-basher’s delight. Leftist actor John Cusack explained his new anti-war comedy (read: the next box office flop) this way: "The ideology behind this war is so radical and it's so destroying the country that I think a somber serious take on it would just add to the…

NPR Ends Newscast With Pacifist Quarter-Hour, Ike Peace Quote

June 1st, 2008 9:26 AM
Saturday night’s All Things Considered on National Public Radio came to an overtly pacifist conclusion. Substitute host Guy Raz (an NPR Defense Department correspondent) conducted a seven-minute interview with John Cusack on his satirical anti-war, anti-Bush film "War Inc.", and Cusack predictably denounced the war and Bush as absurd. Then came a six-minute interview with a smitten John…
