NPR: Supreme Court Won't Want to Be On 'The Wrong Side of History' on

March 1st, 2013 8:12 AM
National Public Radio never wants to make a "conservative case" for anything -- unless it's liberal. On Tuesday's Talk of the Nation, they titled a segment "The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage," underlining that a smattering of moderate-to-liberal Republicans filed an amicus brief against Proposition 8 in California. NPR host Neal Conan's guest was Los Angeles Times legal reporter David…

NPR Wraps Election With Talk of 'Race Baiters' and O'Reilly

November 2nd, 2012 1:31 PM
NPR doesn’t interview authors who find liberal bias in the news media. But it does interview its own contributors when they attack Fox News and media that feeds "fear and prejudice." On Thursday’s Talk of the Nation, host Neal Conan welcomed on Eric Deggans of the Tampa Bay Times to discuss his new book for a half hour. It's titled "Race-Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a…

In Appreciation of Gore Vidal, NPR Broadcasts Historic Lie About Willi

August 4th, 2012 7:31 AM
NPR is the network that sought out Christopher Hitchens to trash Mother Teresa upon her death as a horrible fraud, and then when Hitchens died, they warmly remembered how he hated God and Mother Teresa. So it's not surprising that radical leftist and gay activist Gore Vidal was going to be honored without a second of dissent or disapproval of critics. None of the glowing obituaries and…

The Perfect Feminist 'Seminar Caller' on NPR

March 21st, 2012 7:52 AM
NPR's "Talk of the Nation" hosted a feminist discussion group on Monday, but the first caller was a perfect definition of what Rush Limbaugh has identified as the "seminar caller" -- someone who pretends to be something they're not, like someone saying they're a Republican and then trashing the Republicans.  Monday's NPR version was a "Catholic" who trashed Catholics, finding it "appalling"…

NPR’s Talk of the Nation devoted a segment on Tuesday afternoon to the question “What Happened to the Political Left?” For answers, host Neal Conan brought on the leftist professor Michael Kazin and Katrina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation magazine.

May 14th, 2011 7:27 AM
On Wednesday afternoon's Talk of the Nation on National Public Radio, NPR political director Ken Rudin told host Neal Conan that of course, President Obama was "exactly right" in his El Paso speech to say Republicans are never satisfied on immigration, and want a moat with alligators in it: CONAN: And this is not likely to pass as a piece of legislation but likely to be pretty effective as a…
