    I'm sick of hearing them fellate Republicans and walking on eggshells to avoid offending hypersensitive wingnuts.  

    •  That's been their policy since (1+ / 0-)

      W. "overhauled" the organization via his winger appointees. Tomlinson did so much damage to the entire public broadcasting infrastructure during his tenure, in terms of his appointments and policies and their effect on any organization that touched public broadcasting's network, I don't know if NPR will ever recover. Even the state level organizations changed while Tomlinson was in power. So far, NHPR is the only xPR radio station I've found that wasn't co-opted during Tomlinson's tenure. I guess they were too small for the parent organization to care about. With the Boston market so close, and such a small local market, I think they were ignored. VPR, however, did not slip under the radar - I'm guessing the right wing decided to target VT specifically because of Dean and our progressive reputation.
