Uri Berliner, a veteran at the public radio institution, says the network lost its way when it started telling listeners how to think.



"There’s an unspoken consensus about the stories we should pursue and how they should be framed. It’s frictionless—one story after another about instances of supposed racism, transphobia, signs of the climate apocalypse, Israel doing something bad, and the dire threat of Republican policies. It’s almost like an assembly line."



I was a pretty big NPR listener pre-pan....usually on my commutes and honestly, a fan. 
Since then, I havent listened much...but the other day I did ask Alexa to stream the news and she chose NPR and I was a bit taken back by the editorial comments.
Oh well, another victim/casualty.

NPR is leftwing?    LOL!  Hilarious.   I listen to many NPR podcasts that I would describe as nothing but freemarket capitalism friendly.

Is NPR biased in favour of data and science and technocrats?  Yes!   

Do NPR journalists sometimes pick up lies started by Trump and his supporters as well as Democrats and carry them forward?  Yes.   The problem with political mendacity in the USA is not just confined to the Trump Republicans.   It is very much part of the American national character.

You know me, you can guess I think NPR is left-wing biased. The evidence is strong. However, I believe the government should keep their hands completely off of public broadcasting support as it stands today. There should be federal support for art, free speech, investigative journalism and opinion programming of every shape, size and color. So NPR, PBS and most artists supported by endowments are liberal. I say, it's the conservatives' fault for not creating more art, for not starting their own public broadcasting initiatives. I mean this to an extreme degree. George Carlin said we should encourage, not denounce, racist bigots to speak their minds loud and clear... that way, we can find the sons of bitches. This must be true for anyone, ANYONE, who won't listen objectively to others. Goes for both sides. Your opponent can't be shouted down, because once you beat their opposition out of them, you're asking for someone to do the same to you. Censorship of any kind is the worst sin, because opposition to popular yet wrong ideas would be the first victim of censorship. Not the answer you were hoping for. Why do I DO this to myself?????

at this time it doesn't look that way

however, is there is an obvious case for anti-liberal bias?
