  • NPR Praises Terrorist Baghdadi: ‘He Was a Real Leader,’ ‘A Movement We’ve Never Seen Before

    10/29/2019 9:06:23 AM PDT · by rktman · 28 replies ^ | 10/28/2019 | Penny Starr
    The Washington Post is not alone when it comes to kind remembrances of the ISIS terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who died igniting a suicide vest in a tunnel in northwest Syria on Saturday as U.S. troops closed in. During special coverage of President Donald Trump’s announcement on Sunday of the successful mission, National Public Radio (NPR) praised the man who was responsible for beheading three Americans and enslaving and killing an American woman. Host Lulu Garcia-Navarro led a roundtable discussion with NPR reporters Greg Myre, Tamara Keith and Daniel Estrin about Baghdadi’s death and asked them to tell listeners about...

    Spearheaded a “movement we’ve never seen before.” NPR gushed over ISIS terror leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, describing him as a “real leader” who spearheaded a “movement we’ve never seen before.” During a roundtable discussion about Baghdadi’s death, NPR reporter Greg Myre all but praised the man responsible for beheading three Americans and enslaving and killing an American woman. “He led a movement that we’ve never seen before,” Myre said. “ISIS had tens of thousands of members, fighters, coming in from all over the world.” “They controlled massive amounts of territory — in Eastern Syria and Western and Northern Iraq,” Myre...
  • NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo uses N-word during live radio interview

    10/15/2019 12:15:24 PM PDT · by yesthatjallen · 52 replies ^ | 10/15/19 | Geoff Herbert
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is stirring up controversy by using the N-word during a live radio interview in New York. The New York Post reports Cuomo was on the air with Albany’s WAMC Public Radio Tuesday when he was asked about criticism of Columbus Day and efforts to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day. The governor brought up a recent New York Times op-ed about the treatment of Italian-Americans and spoke about racism. “They used an expression that southern Italians were called, I believe they were saying southern Italians, Sicilians — I’m half Sicilian — were called, quote-unquote and pardon my...

  • Huh? CNN's Chris Cuomo to Host 'Non-Partisan' Radio Show

    Newsbusters ^ | September 20, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    CNN's Chris Cuomo might have his faults but one thing you have to say about him is he plays it down the middle with no obvious partisan agenda. You don't believe me? Why just ask him since it has been announced in the Hollywood Reporter that Cuomo will be hosting a call-in radio show starting this Monday on SiriusXM's "non-partisan" P.O.T.U.S. channel. Got that, everybody? Non-partisan.  If you dare cast aspersions upon Cuomo's claim about a lack of a political agenda, he tells us over and over again about how straight down the middle he plays it in contrast to...
  • On Good Friday, an NPR report mangles the definition of Easter

    An NPR report on Good Friday described Easter inaccurately and, in doing so, practically begged Christians to renew charges that the media is biased against them. “Easter — the day celebrating the idea that Jesus did not die and go to hell or purgatory or anywhere like that, but rather arose into heaven — is on Sunday,” read an article on NPR’s website.

    The Hill ^ | February 12, 2018 | Rebecca Savransky
    The president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) warned Monday of the negative effects that President Trump's proposed budget cuts could have on public broadcasting. Trump's budget proposes eliminating federal funding for the CPB over a two-year period. The budget has to be approved by Congress before it can take effect. In a statement released Monday, Patricia Harrison said that the "elimination of funding to CPB would at first devastate, and then ultimately destroy public media's ability to provide early childhood content, life-saving emergency alerts, and public affairs programs." "Public media benefits all Americans — whether they...
  • Top NPR, New York Times executive accused of lewd sexual harassment is placed on leave

    10/31/2017 8:26:23 PM PDT · by Strac6 · 74 replies
    The head of National Public Radio’s news department was placed on leave Tuesday after he was accused of sexual harassment by two women who claimed he made unwanted advances toward them while he worked at the New York Times nearly 20 years ago. Both women claimed Michael Oreskes kissed them and stuck his tongue in their mouths after they had approached him about working at the Times in the late 1990s, when Oreskes was the paper’s Washington bureau chief. NPR reported Tuesday that Oreskes was formally rebuked following a separate incident two years ago where a female producer complained she...

    Christian Post ^ | 10/23/2017 | Anugrah Kumar
    Ken Stern, the former CEO of National Public Radio, spent a year venturing "out from my overwhelmingly Democratic neighborhood" by meeting Republicans and attending evangelical church services, which led him to his discovery of "an America far different from the one depicted in the press." "This may seem like an unusual admission from someone who once ran NPR, but it is borne of recent experience," wrote Stern, now president of Palisades Media Ventures, in an article published in New York Post. "When you are liberal, and everyone else around you is as well, it is easy to fall into groupthink...

  • Huh? NPR Blames ‘White Nostalgia’ for Trump on Classic Rock

    03/07/2017 8:24:01 AM PST · by rktman · 110 replies ^ | 3/6/2017 | Christian Toto
    Did you know your tax dollars support articles that all but label President Donald Trump racist? And suggest the same of your favorite singers, too? Consider a new pop culture “think piece” from NPR. The headline alone is all you need to read: “White Nostalgia Didn't Start With Trump — Just Look At Classic Rock” Suddenly, the soundtrack to our lives has been thrown under the bus, and we helped fund it. It begins, of course, with calling Trump’s signature appeal racist. For more than a year, Donald Trump has harped on white nostalgia. A hearkening back to a rosy,...

    5Saga Liberal Talk 1470 WNYY Ithaca NY will drop the format for Oldies on February 1. In an interview with the Ithaca Times, General Manager Chet Osadchey stated that the move is due to lack of programming to fill out a schedule as only Alan Colmes, Thom Hartmann, and Stephanie Miller remain as many others have left syndication. Osadchey made sure to emphasize that it wasn’t politically motivated decision. No word yet if Saga’s additional Liberal Talkers in Bellingham WA, Brattleboro VT, and Springfield MA will make similar moves away from the format.

    NPR fans received an e-mail with the subject line "Bold, unbiased journalism." That's pretty funny coming from a network that puts a loving touch on Barack Obama in interviews and never secured an interview with Donald Trump. . . . Dear Friend, As I said on the radio the other day,* journalism is at the heart of who we are at NPR. Facts matter. We strongly believe in and follow the core journalism values of accuracy, fairmindedness, integrity and independence. We are the public’s media. That is, we work for you....

    Rehm's retirement is a Christmas gift to America National Public Radio mainstay Diane Rehm, who did Hollywood a disservice by missing her calling as a horror movie voice actor, has at long last retired after nearly four decades of boring and infantilizing helpless Washington, D.C. area taxi fares. Her retirement Dec. 23 is an early Christmas present for Americans. The fossilized crypt-keeper of taxpayer-funded NPR, a pillar of the left-wing media establishment, is beloved by wrong-thinking people across the fruited plain. She also helped starve her husband so he would die prematurely which makes her a heroic figure — a...

    The atheist radio program “Freethought Radio” has been axed in Madison, Wis., the victim of a format change. In its place? Twenty-four hours a day of Christmas music. It’s like getting run over by reindeer. “The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s radio show has been unceremoniously yanked off the air locally,” says the group’s press release, released Nov. 11. According to its website, the nonprofit group has more than 23,500 members and acts as a voice for free thought — atheism, agnosticism, skepticism. The radio program, which has been around for a decade and is hosted by husband-and-wife team Annie Laurie...

    Breitbart ^ | 19 Nov 2016
    National Public Radio ombudsman/public editor Elizabeth Jensen has recommended that the taxpayer-funded radio news service bar future live interviews of conservatives who may have controversial views, following an interview Nov. 16 with Breitbart News’ Joel B. Pollak. Pollak, who serves as Breitbart’s Senior Editor-at-Large and In-house Counsel, defended its Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon from false and defamatory claims of antisemitism and “white nationalism.” He also turned the tables, pointing out that NPR has “racist programming,” including a story that called the 2016 election results “nostalgia for a whiter America.”
