Comments: An Ex-Listener's Open Letter to NPR

I used to be an avid listener but as time went by I changed my listening habits. Now I rarely listen at all. All things considered, I would rather have silence than the Leftist talking points of the day.

That moment came for me in 2005, shortly after I had returned from the Trangle of Death, when they claimed that there were no Terrorists in Iraq.

Then the next segment was about Zarqawi, the leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Even Click-and-Clack the NPR "car-guys" were always so drippingly and consistently leftwing populist-progressive, like a VWS's blown oil-seal the smarmy evidence was everywhere, it made me wonder if they could adjust a brake shoe star-wheel - or only loosen it. Ever the leftward/leftard turn.

In all modes of life you need intelligence, as in watching the other side. So I don't have any problem listening to NPR, because I know there will be this swarminess to some of their reports, but I do sometimes get answers to that oft asked question ... What we're they thinking ?
The answer usually has something to do with being blinded by their own prejudices, or just plain stupidity.
Frankly, I find NPR's program to be far superior to the Sunday morning public service programming that covers the downtrodden, but seems to be unable to stop themselves from remembering that all poor people aren't Black. NPR knows that some Hispanics are poor too.
