    NPR – Taxpayer funded, far left wing propaganda. NPR can afford radio repeaters where I live, so it is the only radio station that is on the dial here.

    Tree, maybe if you listened to something else other that the crap on fox you would see it is actually moderate. NPR does not take either side. In my area it will have interviews with candidates from both sides presenting their views. You really should listen to it sometime instead of spewing the drivel from the talking heads.

    I don’t like talk radio.
    I tried to listen to “Wait..Wait…Don’t Tell Me” and it was too easy.

    The only way NPR can be considered far left is if Fox News is considered to be somewhat left of center. The Fox News slogan, “Fair and Balanced” is a masterpiece of irony.

    News should present facts and background and allow you to decide what is going on. News should give you what you need to know, not what you want to know.

    Commentary is one viewpoint’s interpretation of the facts and should be clearly defined as such.

    Fox News would be better titled Fox Commentaries, or Fox Opinions. (or possibly Faux News)

    From Wikipedia: “According to CPB (federally funded Corporation for Public Broadcasting), in 2009 11.3% of the aggregate revenues of all public radio broadcasting stations were funded from federal sources, principally through CPB.”

    One other interesting tidbit from Wikipedia: "Surveys and follow-up focus groups conducted by the Tarrance Group and Lake Snell Perry & Associates have indicated that, “The majority of the U.S. adult population does not believe that the news and information programming on public broadcasting is biased. The plurality of Americans indicate that there is no apparent bias one way or the other, while approximately two-in-ten detect a liberal bias and approximately one-in-ten detect a conservative bias.”

    according to a university study from last year the people that were the most uninformed were the ones that watched fox news and msnbc and the ones that demonstrated a knowledge of what was going on nationally and internationally were the people who listened to NPR and watched the daily show

    Well said, Phil. On many issues, my personal views would be considered a bit to the right, but NPR has for years been my choice for honest coverage of news and issues. News is well covered. I may not always agree with the commentary’, but I value the input.
