Mr. Pot, allow me to introduce you to Mr. Kettle

For quite a while now, National Public Radio has done nothing to hide the fact that it reports news from a strictly liberal perspective. It is what they are known for and what Americans–both those who like their leftist tilt and those who abhor it–have come to expect from the network. But as with most liberal thinkers, it is at times difficult to discern if they are just plain stupid, or plain disingenuous. Do they actually believe some of the stuff they say, or do they think their audience is so stupid that it will believe whatever ridiculous statement they make?

Here we have NPR’s latest installment of either abject stupidity, or contemptible duplicity.

NPR Pressures Liasson to Leave Fox News

National Public Radio executives appear to be pressuring one of their top political correspondents to reconsider her regular appearances on Fox News because of what they’ve told her is the network’s right-wing political bias, Politico reports.

According to two unidentified sources, correspondent Mara Liasson was summoned in early October by NPR’s executive editor for news, Dick Meyer, and a Washington editor to a meeting to discuss quitting Fox. They reportedly told Liasson that Fox’s programming had grown more partisan.

They asked Liasson to spend 30 days watching the network.

But Liasson told them in a follow-up meeting that she’d seen no significant change in Fox’s programming and planned to continue appearing on the network, Politico reported.

My gut tells me this is a classic example of contemptible duplicity, but at the same time, you can never underestimate a liberal’s proclivity for abject stupidity.

We may never know…

  1. NPR should do it’s homework. Is Fox biased for the most part, yes. Lumping “Special Report” with the rest of the opinion based journalism on Fox is unfair. “Special Report” does focus on its on audience but you can’t compare that with Beck or O’Reilly. this is their attempt to taint the entire FoxNews with one broad brush.

  2. It’s short-sighted too. Why would NPR give up a fairly liberal seat on Special Report? Even uber-liberal Bob Beckel says that he reaches more people on Fox than he could on any other network. And why didn’t they ask Juan Williams to quit Fox? I hope she quits NPR; that’s what I would do.

  3. Doesn’t NPR stand for National Progaganda Radio? The word “Public” is a misnomer and they should stop using it!

  4. PBS is squandering millions of tax dollars on HD Radio, a jammer which would be the envy of East Bloc tyrants. PBS’ HD Radio jams other stations so all you hear is PBS.

    Smart business, eh? Smart leftist business.

    Why listens whiny squeaky geeky-voice natterers and that sly, snide fatso from Lake Ho’Begon is beyond me.

    PBS oozes leftist contempt for what it must regard as its bourgeois listeners.

    PBS insults the senses, truth, and logic. Why listen to them?

    Don’t their initials stand for Proletariats, Bolsheviks & Socialists?
