NPR Covers Corporation for Public Broadcasting
Are they going to attack liberal arts as a college major next? CPB head secretly hired a consultant to monitor several shows on NPR. David Folken produced a radio story which is even better on the web because it includes Acrobat copies of the 58 page Overview along with other segments. So you can judge for yourself, not just take NPR’s word for it.
Bill Moyer on Al Franken show said it very well. You don’t get to the truth by having opposing talking heads spinning the story. You invite guest on to get to the truth – a journalist principle if I’ve ever heard one. So all this counting of liberal/conservative and pro/con Bush is not journalism but raw, ugly politics trying to corrupt the press.permalink ( Friday, July 01, 2005 ) Ray 1 comments links to this post
I guess Bill Moyer (back when he was an LBJ flunky) still feels guilty about getting caught asking the FBI to out homosexuals on Barry Goldwater's campaign staff
