  •  Defund NPR (4+ / 0-)

    As long as there is a Republican House, and/or threat of a Republican House or Senate, NPR will be lickspittle toadies for a manufactured David Brooksian point of view that they'll brand as Republican, and cite to protect their government funding.

    Cut off public funding, and NPR will still survive just fine - and maybe become a real news organization once again.

    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore

    •  I agree with defunding them. (0+ / 0-)

      I think the only substantive change, though, will be in the realized cost savings.  They'll continue down the same path they've been on for over a decade now:  completely beholden to their corporate sponsors.  At least we won't have to pay for it.
