HOT TALK: House Democrat Whip Plays Debt-Limit Dominatrix on NPR
NPR would like the taxpayers to think that they're nonpartisan news for all people. But in reality, they're the favorite channel for hard-core lefties. They're like Fox News for the Pelosi set. Look no further than Friday's Morning Edition, where co-host Michel Martin interviewed House Minority Whip Katharine Clark of Massachusetts
To Diversify Their Audience, NPR Hosts Race Hustling Monday
NPR has a Strategic Plan to expand their "Black and Hispanic audiences on all platforms." This helps explain why they offered black leftists an open-ended publicity platform on Monday's morning and evening "news" programs. Minnesota's Attorney General Keith Ellison was given a softball interview about his book prosecuting the cops in the George Floyd case, with zero focus on the current crime…
Column: Eager Publicists for Racial Reparations in California
How insanely radical and unjust can blue states get? California’s nine-member Reparations Task Force voted May 6 to recommend that state lawmakers provide billions of dollars in compensation payments to black residents along with a formal apology for slavery. NPR touted the commision's work and wouldn't allow an opposing point of view. They strongly suggested white opponents were racist.
NPR Touts Dinner Comedian Roy Wood: He Wants Laughs AND Reparations
On Friday, NPR previewed the liberal comedy for the liberal journalists at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Morning Edition co-host Leila Fadel interviewed the featured comedian -- Roy Wood Jr. from The Daily Show, who cracked that if he's really hilarious, President Biden will grant all black people reparations.
NewsBusters Podcast: Can’t Say Leftist Agitators Storm State Capitols
When leftist agitators storm state capitals, you can’t use those words. Leftist media won’t use labels for their own kind, and they won’t use “storm” for a left-wing disturbance inside a state capitol building. Two black legislators in Tennessee became instant media heroes when the Republican House majority expelled them for creating a disturbance on the House floor and violating House rules…
Column: Touting the Leftist Crusaders Against 'Book Bans'
The Left is in an uproar. Parents opposed to their indoctrinating ways are forming a resistance movement. One uproar is over books – assigned books in the classroom and available books in the school library. Disagree with the content of the books? You’re for “book bans.” The leftist press makes it sound like you’re banning books entirely from public view.
By The Numbers: How Fervently Did NPR Avoid Covering Garland Hearing?
On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee held its first hearing of the new Congress with Attorney General Merrick Garland. It was a rock-em, sock-em grilling by Senate Republicans, but NPR fervently avoided a story on it. But they found time for a four-minute story on a man setting a Guinness World Record for Disneyland visits, and eight minutes on "how curry took over the world."
NPR Cites 'Debate' on If God Needs Gendered Pronouns, Airs No Debate
National Public Radio shares the left end of the FM radio dial with religious broadcasters, but they have absolutely nothing in common. NPR has a long record of loathing orthodox Christianity. The latest proof? They promoted the Church of England exploring how God shouldn’t be described as Father or Son. That’s apparently the archaic patriarchy in action.
NPR Enables Jeffries: We Won't Pay 'Ransom Note' to GOP 'Extremists'
NPR sounded like National Democrat Radio again on Friday as Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep interviewed House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. It was extremely reminiscent of Inskeep's regular puffball interviews with President Obama, as Jeffries is clearly trying to project that same fake-moderation, and Inskeep is trying to help.The NPR headline is the DNC headline: "Hakeem…
NPR AM Show Mocks Fox-Driven Gas Stove Panic, Ignores Their Own 'News'
NPR’s Morning Edition tried to have it both ways Friday, both mocking right-wing concern over banning gas stoves and also suggesting a ban could be in the works after all. The set-up was galling. Why would taking the head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission seriously when he said a gas stove ban was on the table require the expertise of NPR’s “conspiracy theory” reporter Lisa…
NewsBusters Podcast: Biden Visits Border, NPR Asks Why Border Control?
President Biden's visit to the border in El Paso was greeted by liberal media operatives in two noticeable ways. Either they sympathized with Biden's work on this "complex" issue, or -- like NPR's Steve Inskeep -- they asked Team Biden "why" they would tell people not to come to America and cross the border illegally? MRC Latino Director Jorge Bonilla offers his expertise on these matters.
NPR Attacks Rush Limbaugh and Salem Radio in Seven-Minute Hit Piece
On Friday's Morning Edition, co-host Steve Inskeep broadcast some unintentional hilarity when offering a seven-minute attack on conservative talk radio starring Katie Thornton, who has a liberal podcast series called "The Divided Dial." NPR's website summarized the segment as NPR "examines how right-wing radio spreads misinformation." The lodestar of this "misinformation"? The late…
NPR Smears Twitter Files as 'Ugly' Musk 'Stunt' That Spurred Threats
Taxpayer-subsidized NPR had been aggressively ignoring the "Twitter Files" revelations, but when they finally acknowledged them on Tuesday's Morning Edition, the new information was described as an "attention-grabbing stunt," "not a bombshell," and an "ugly" spectacle causing threats of violence to Dr. Anthony Fauci and former Twitter "trust and safety" czar Yoel Roth.
NPR Analyzes GOP with Author of 'The Republican Party Lost Its Mind'
National Public Radio hates Republicans, and it doesn't matter if Republicans pay a chunk of their salaries. On Wednesday, Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep brought on New York Times Magazine writer Robert Draper, author of a book colorfully titled Weapons Of Mass Delusion: When The Republican Party Lost Its Mind.
