One of the few truly independent news outlets in the USA. Arrogant right wing opinion mongers hate their balanced approach as there is no "agenda" to appease.
Rush: Where'd you get that in-depth understanding of a complicated issue?
Me: I heard it debated on NPR. Honorable people on both sides of the issue disagree.
Rush: Bah! They're all liberal degenerates.
Me: No, they're just free from conservative bias.
Excellent non-profit source of news and entertainment, accused of having liberal bias but in fact the most objective and honest media source available.
Bill O'Reilly says NPR sucks up government money, but in fact they get about 2% of their money from uncle same, what a fucktard.
2%! Are you kidding me, that's like, 5 more subscribers they would need to survive....
1. the only source of truth tucked among mendatious media conglomerates.
2.a radio station that gives republicans nightmares, hopefully.
3. station containing journalists who know their shit and also have delicately cadenced voices
"wanna watch some cnn? i haven't been lied to enough today."
"nah. got a hot date with npr."
Besides the other definitions on this site, NPR will also forever be termed "left-wing new media" or something of the sort because for some reason conservatives condemn anything that doesn't come from the right.
The fact of the matter is there is more journalism and civil debate on this station than any of the conservative syndicated talk show. Rush Limbaugh
, Glenn Beck
, Sean Hannity
, and Michael Savage
(who is the only one really worth listening to) have a lot of fire and wind, but it's punditry. And their interviewer tactics mostly consist of shouting at any kind of statement that is contrary to their agenda. I'm not making this up either. Just fucking listen.
And America forgets sometimes that the news is supposed to be collected by field reporters and experts, not the talking heads who issue their opinions and tell you what to think.
Man 1: What are you listening to?
Man 2: All Things Considered on NPR.
Man 1: What is it?
Man 2: *turns to camera* THE FUCKING NEWS.
A company hugely funded by taxpayer money, though it would work fine as a private company. Led by proven anti-semitic/racist executives who are doomed to loose their funding sooner or later.
MSNBC, FOX, and CNN do not receive free money from the government. NPR should compete as well.
National Peddler's Radio.
A typical radio station that always asks or peddles for money, cars or even your body when you die.
"This is ENNN PEE ARRRGHH! National Peddler Radio"
"Hi! This is Troy McClure! You may remember me from such peddling as NPR needs money! And jerry Lewis goes bankrupt..."
A radio station with just a little Left-wing bias, Not as bad as Air America
. NPR does have some Republican-like bias such as support and sympathy for Israel
. However, NPR is more of a entertainment station than a news and information. The only news shows on NPR are NPR news and BBC
If you want really Liberal Opinions on the radio, listen to Air America, if you want Conservative Opinions on the radio, listen to Michael Savage
or Matt Drudge. NPR is mostly just entertainment and Moderate-Left opinion.
