I just listened to an NPR hit piece interview with Sanders.


The not too subtle message was, "Yeah, but why don't you just drop out?"

Sanders had to explain, as if speaking to a Republican child, why he intends to stay in to the end: his message being stronger than Hillary's.

NPR continued, "Yeah, but here's a anonymous Twitter post asking 'Why don't you just drop out?'"


And to top it off, the next segment on NPR discussed income inequality and how Americans are falling behind.

1. Money

They serve corporate masters like the rest of the media.

Don't the Koch brothers contribute heavily to the Corp for Public Broadcasting?

2. I won't have that problem because I refuse to listen to NPR. They are biased and dishonest.

Just like every other TV and radio station.

3. Weeks ago, I heard an NPR pundit call Clinton the "Democratic nominee."

Not the presumptive nominee or likely nominee. No, just THE nominee. I waited for the NPR host to correct the pundit. But, of course, that did not happen.

Not too subtle indeed.

21. It was blatant NPR propaganda.

I wonder how many listeners didn't even recognize or notice the lie and disinformation?

5. Won't listen to ATC or Morning Edition

But WNYC has some excellent programs so I'm happy with my local affiliate at least. The minute the morning or evening drive shows come on I'm out of there.

9. My local NPR affiliate has some great local programming

 

so I endure that crap that the national delivers to them.
I have contacted the station manager, and informed him that I have lessened my donation to the station because of this.
Oh, it's WAMC in Albany, NY.
And I still donate to WBAI in NYC, and WFUV there too.

11. Thanks for the warning

 

It was just coming up so I got to change the channel in time.

Maybe we should drop in on their facebook page to let them know how we feel.

12. Reminds me of a juxtaposition I heard on NPR's Marketplace a few years ago.

They did an in-depth story about an impoverished neighborhood, complete with homeless and hungry children, and followed it up with a stock market report that started off with their cheery, upbeat rendition of "We're In The Money." I felt physically ill listening to that.

It was disturbing to hear that "interview" this morning. I was wondering who the interviewer was and what was his problem? He had some kind of secret agenda to BULLY Bernie into leaving his own campaign.

Unbelievable! If anybody knows who the interviewer was, I would very much like to send an email. Thanks
Update: Steve Inskeep was the interviewer of Bernie on the Morning Edition. You can listen to the interview. I sent an email that this his interview was disturbing...

14. BUT...

On Tuesday on my way to work, CBS Radio (KNX1070 in Los Angeles) did an interview with Bernie while he was in Indiana. Mind you, I'm always complaining of their tRump bias (it's been Rump, 24/7 since last fall with never even mentioning Bernie's name) BUT I was shocked that they let him talk and barely tried the old "Hill already has the nomination" thing.

He was, as always, clear and concise...and never took the bait that they try and lay out...AND said he is going to the Convention (Yes!!!)

It was really good and should have been heard by THOUSANDS as it was at 10AM.

Even last night on CBS Nightly, Scott Pelley point blank said "do we have your word that you are going to the Convention?" and Bernie said...Yes!

Take that Elite Turd Wayers!



p.s...I no longer listen to NPR...gave up on them in about 2012. I wanted to throttle Steve Inskeep, Michelle Norris and CokieHead Roberts.

15. I could hear that he was annoyed, but he made his point clear.

 


It was seriously like listening to an adult (Bernie) listening and responding to a transparently partisan sophomoric questioner: not understanding that there are still states that have a vote coming up.

And yes, I would say the same if Hillary was in the same position.

It was in a BBC podcast on May 4th.
