No, I think anyone thinking that after the Juan Williams thing is letting partisanship get the best of them. Juan Williams broke his contract with NPR and under an at-will contract, they can fire him whenever they want to fire him. They do a great job of talking about the news and only the news. I want my news to be the news and the opinions of the newscaster to stay with themselves. This whole incident is blown out of proportion.
Anyone who wants to call NPR liberal must be listening to a different station because I believe they are the most balanced and fair news organization we have in this country (but not saying much with state of our media). I want news and only news, which is what they give me. And I am a moderate independent and that is my opinion.
Jason, you are missing the point about the news. There shouldn't be equal time for each side, there shouldn't be a side with the news. It should be just the news and no sides.
P.S. NPR only gets 2% of their funding from the federal government.
