NPR 'Fresh Air' Offers Obsequious Tongue Bath to Nikole-Hannah Jones

November 18th, 2021 2:30 PM

NPR offers a daily talk show called Fresh Air out of WHYY-FM in Philadelphia. Its leftist tilt is legendary, and the legend was strongly underlined on Wednesday with an incredibly servile interview with Nikole Hannah-Jones, organizer of the "1619 Project" agitprop at The New York Times.  There are 15 questions offered over 36 minutes, and every single one of them is…

This NPR Host Couldn't Be More In Favor of Abusive Al Franken

July 28th, 2019 3:21 PM
Longtime NPR Fresh Air host Terry Gross is completely In The Tank for Al Franken. Back in the Dubya years, we contrasted her giggly, tickly Franken interview with a very hostile Bill O'Reilly interview, where he actually stormed out of the studio.

That news operation includes the heavily taxpayer-subsidized Newsworks, which produces a daily 30-minute local newscast for WHYY, Newsworks Tonight. On Friday’s Newsworks Tonight, Taunya English, health and science…

Your Tax Dollars at Work: NPR’s Scant Gosnell Trial Coverage

April 17th, 2013 3:58 PM
As Newsbusters has detailed again and again, coverage by dominant news organizations of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial has been almost non-existent. Taxpayer-subsidized public radio is no exception, even after the issue of non-coverage gained widespread attention last week. As the fifth week of the Gosnell trial continues (it opened March 18), NPR still has not devoted a single piece to the…
