I hope this lawsuit is successful. NPR is a progressive favorite for liberals to spin their fake misleading news. Defined NPR!

No worries, if NPR loses the suit they’ll just suck up $57M in additional taxes.

“How many coffee mugs and tote bags is that?”

Or reruns of a fifty year-old Lawrence Welk Show, complete with a map of how to get to his grave!

Defund NPR.

The GOP led Appropriations Committee has recommended stable funding for the CPB (NPR/PBS/etc)

Damn, any judgment against National Panhandler Radio comes from our pockets. They have no assets.

“They have no assets.”

They may have insurance.

The suit may prove defamation, but I don’t think the damages are generally very big. You have to prove injury as in, somebody wrote you a letter saying they were cancelling their contract because of the defaming statement. That probably never happens. People just melt away.

The only people who will profit from this suit are the lawyers.

Unfortunately, NPR is subsidized by the taxpayer so we will help pay for any damages won buy the plaintiff. If NPR was a private company - heads would role; people would be fired. If NPR was a publicly traded company, shareholders would be calling for blood and scalps from the top of the organization.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where accountability at public institutions does not apply to the liberals running those institutions. This must change!
