4. I have never been more disappointed in NPR than during this primary.

And I'm a long-standing contributor...

I don't listen as much as I used to because I don't commute by car, and the only radio I own is there (yeah, I know...internet radio). But I've always expected NPR to be the least biased major(ish) news source. That confidence eroded in 2008, and is pretty much shattered now.

Can Bernie Sanders recover? [View all] FlatBaroque Mar 2016 OP
