All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Will NPR Finally Get Theirs?

Until yesterday I felt almost alone in my personal campaign to get NPR off the taxpayer dime. NPR always says they do not get very much money, but everybody on the government dime says they don't get very much; so what else is new? Over the years NPR has discussed the wonder of Fidel's Castro's Cuba and the forward looking leadership of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua and the righteousness of the progressive movement in America. They have portrayed America as a nation mislead by an irrational conservative leadership and have almost always taken positions that put the nation in a precarious position. They support radical anti-American movements around the world and believe that America is the cause of all the world's problems. Fortunately their influence has been limited to the small audience of public radio, but their pernicious goals can be felt throughout the country. They want Americans to feel they live in a terrible country when it goes against what they think is righteous foreign and domestic policy. It's obvious that Vivian Schiller and Ellen Weiss got in over their heads when they fired Juan Williams. It will be interesting to see how they feel when their turn to be fired arrives. Goodbye Vivian. Goodbye Ellen. Say hello to the $2 million dollar man; Juan Williams on Fox News
