NPR–unfair, unbalanced…and afraid. October 21, 2010Posted by Fritz in Yachts and other things that float.

I’ve been trying to resist political posts recently, mainly because of the “if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it” maxim. But this got my blood boiling.
National Public Radio fired Juan Williams for daring to speak his mind. His offense was to admit to what any sane human should think these days. “….But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
NPR has always been the most continuous source of liberal slanted news on the radio. Liberal talk outlets like Air America came and went because, as privately funded outfits, they relied on advertising to survive. NPR is funded in large part by our tax dollars. A steady stream of cash that fears nothing from the free market. Well that needs to change. I’m writing my (new) senator and (new) congressman to pass legislation to stop funding NPR with public money. If you’re as outraged as I am with a publicly funded media outlet that espouses far left propaganda, pick up the phone or write an e-mail. It all starts with us.
