Petition Inside NPR Accuses Them of a 'White Supremacist Culture'

January 23rd, 2021 6:41 AM

We’ve seen some of the nation’s largest liberal newspapers boil over in internal turmoil over race, so it’s only natural it would happen at National Public Radio. Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner cited a manifesto for an “antiracist future” and the “transformation of public media” published at Current, a website for public broadcasting employees and insiders. It claims "white…

August 6th, 2020 1:47 PM

Michelle Obama may be many things, a mega-millionaire, emerging media personality, bestselling author and former White House resident, but complete happiness has been eluding her lately, and shocker, it’s because of a certain sitting president. During the latest episode of her fancy new Spotify podcast, the former first lady told her guest that President Trump has given her a mild bout of “…

Pandemic America ‘Impervious to Black Pain’: Race-Baiting at Wash Post

May 22nd, 2020 12:15 PM
Michele Norris has “a sense of vertigo and justifiable anger.” Perhaps because the latest product line she and others in the race industry are hawking isn’t quite catching on. It’s the idea that those who want to go back to work, or go shopping, or have a beer on a sunny day, are, in Norris’s formulation, “impervious to black pain.”

Bozell Column: Time to Cut Off NPR

October 25th, 2011 10:18 PM
National Public Radio continues to define itself in every way as a taxpayer-funded nest of leftism. NPR couldn’t just supportively report on the Occupy Wall Street protests. A fire-breathing spokeswoman for the "Occupy DC" protests against capitalism was also an NPR host. Lisa Simeone was an NPR anchor for their weekend version of the newscast "All Things Considered" for a year and a half,…

July 15th, 2011 6:48 AM
On Thursday’s All Things Considered, NPR profiled conservative activist Grover Norquist, the head of Americans for Tax Reform. Michele Norris began: “In the debate over the debt ceiling, one person who has outsized influence is not actually at the negotiating table.” That might sound good to Norquist’s donors, but when liberal reporters accuse someone of “outsized influence,” it means “too much…

NPR Mourns Global Cooler-Turned-Global Warmer Scientist

July 20th, 2010 2:19 PM
Few seem to remember now, but throughout the 1970s, the advertised threat to society from global cooling was as prevalent as the current global warming alarmism. Publications including The New York Times, Time and Newsweek - the same ones hyping the dangers of a warming planet in 2010 - were warning about global cooling then. A prominent global cooler from that era has recently passed away.…

June 3rd, 2010 6:36 AM
On Tuesday night's All Things Considered newscast, Michele Norris sadly relayed news of the Gore separation:  "The Gores had a storybook romance: college sweethearts, four beautiful children.

May 23rd, 2010 8:47 AM
Liberal media outlets were quick to pounce on the new Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from Kentucky about his views on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, not just Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, but NPR All Things Considered anchor Robert Siegel on Wednesday night.

NPR Promotes Left-Wing Theory of 'Astounding Growth' of Militias and C

April 1st, 2010 7:50 AM
The leftist Southern Poverty Law Center is a National Public Radio staple in analyzing right-wing militia groups -- and then connecting them to the Tea Party movement and conservative talk-show hosts. Imagine a conservative group connecting liberal talk-show hosts and protesters to radical leftists like...Bill Ayers. Would they get a baldly promotional interview on NPR? No. But NPR Fresh Air…
