dictating the news. i know here in NC the biggest chunk of money NPR gets comes from private donors. at least that's what they say during their pledge drives.
stories like the one this afternoon keep me from donating. my taxes pay for them too anyway. i'd like to think that my share supports this american life or car talk or one of the other programs i love about NPR.
