The Nice, Polite Republicans...
That's NPR for you, coined by someone on the Internets. I have certainly smelled a change in their programming choices ever since the Bush administration put them in a squeezer, though they weren't exactly lefty before that, either.
Still, it IS pretty stunning that both Juan Williams and Mara Liasson work for not only NPR but also for Fox News. Though perhaps not that surprising, given the daily "Marketplace" which focuses on how well the capitalists are doing and no equivalent program for, say, the "Workplace."
There was a time when I thought that losing NPR would be a great shame, because at least they took reporting seriously and covered some topics in greater depth. I no longer think that way.
