  •  Sad, isn't it, that even NPR is full of Village-r (7+ / 0-)

    idiots these days -- the smart ones having left in disgust or been driven off by the neocon-pandering neutered leadership there. But now it's little better than the rest of the infotainment world.

      like it was authored by fox.  Diane Rehm will never challenge a right wingers outright lie and too often has competing Koch bros orgs (Heritage, AEI, Cato,etc) on at the same time to discuss current events.
