This is typical of the progressive SwampMedia. Heck, the progressive culture, period.

Conservatism and the Republican Party are homes of openness and diversity, acceptance, diversity, tolerance and, most of all,... FREETHINKING.

On the left? None of that!

Remember MSNBC and Ronna McDaniel? Same Old, same old.

I'm, proudly, not woke, white electric limousine lovin progressive.

A former NPR insider tells Fox News Digital that it's 'going to be difficult' for Uri Berliner to remain at NPR

The organization's in-house media correspondent David Folkenflik reported Tuesday that Uri Berliner, NPR's senior business editor who wrote the bombshell essay about his employer's bias, was placed on a five-day suspension without pay that began Friday.

"It angered many of his colleagues, led NPR leaders to announce monthly internal reviews of the network's coverage, and gave fresh ammunition to conservative and partisan Republican critics of NPR, including former President Donald Trump," Folkenflik wrote.

    $10 says we eventually find out Berliner was paid off to make all this up.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on April 17, 2024 11:42 am

    No one at NPR is disputing Berliner's facts... as far as I can tell.


  3. by Indy! on April 17, 2024 11:52 am

    If the guy lost his job (as your other post said) - then obviously they don't agree with his take. But it doesn't matter either way because they're ignorant as to where they really stand because they are inside the bubble. Just like Fox watchers who think all media is "liberal" because Fox tells them that every day. It's the monkey cage theory - they've been in the cage so long they no longer smell the feces.


  4. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 11:55 am
    This guy, Aaron Fritschner (who if he is the same guy, is the Deputy Chief of Staff of Congressman Don Beyer) refutes Uri Berliner's claims point by point with quotes and links.

  5. by Indy! on April 17, 2024 12:01 pm

    There's no "point by point" stuff there. There IS a link to Uri Berliner's confession piece which - if you take time to read (some of) it - proves what I've been saying about NPR. This dude is too close to the situation (and wouldn't know the "left" if it bit him on the ankle) to give a fair assessment of how America sees NPR.


  6. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 12:10 pm
    Indy, did you read it?

    For example, Berliner wrote: "But when the Mueller report found no credible evidence of collusion, NPR’s coverage was notably sparse. Russiagate quietly faded from our programming."

    But NPR did cover it. See links.

    And obviously Berliner is here repeating a Republican talking point that simply is not true. It is not true that the Mueller investigation found "no credible evidence of collusion," they found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with criminal conspiracy. This claim is false.

    D@ng, Curt! You are to Good Germaning what Caitlin Clark is to advancing the women's college basketball TV ratings.

    Absolutely historic!

    Paradigm shattering.

    Link me to articles or videos in which GOPs on the NPR editorial staff come out. I've missed it.

    Baha baha bahahahahahahahahahaha baha haha ha.


  8. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 12:39 pm
    HtS,
    How do you know that there are no Republicans working for NRP? Because Uri Berliner says so? Just because a people aren't inclined to repeat Trump's lies doesn't mean they cannot be Republicans.


  9. by HatetheSwamp on April 17, 2024 12:52 pm

    Because Berliner, the ultimate bad German, says there are none...

    ...AND...

    ...no one has disputed that.

    People like Berliner must tear your heart out.

    Eh?


  10. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 1:16 pm
    Honestly, HtS, it doesn't matter to me what a journalist's political affiliation is. What matters is if they are reliable in their reporting. Similarly for pundits and opinion writers. For example, I enjoy reading Bret Stephens who is a Republican.

    I don't buy the notion of "fair and balanced" and the need to hear "alternate facts" or somebody's own personal "truth".


  11. by HatetheSwamp on April 17, 2024 1:36 pm

    If you say so, Curt.

    You watch Fox. Baha! Can you imagine NPR being what it is with Judge Jeanine, Laura Ingraham and Jesse Watters on the editorial staff? Nuh uh.

    The issue is not who the individuals are. It's the culture that is created.

    Honestly, Berliner's 87-0 stat is suggestive. But, it makes the point.

    As I noted, 35 years ago I got nearly 100% of my news from NPR in the morning and PBS in the evening. And, I was extremely well-informed and, as a lifelong news junkie, well-pleased.

    But, in the years since then, as a seeker of truth, on those extremely rare occasions when I click on either, I realize that I'm being preached at.

    I note from time to time that I subscribe to CNN, MSNBC, NewsNation, Newsmax, the Hill and Fox on YouTube.

    PBS is like CNN except that it's smug.

    I say repeatedly that you evince no interest in knowing truth. You seek to fan the flames of the preferences and prejudices that you bring with you to every moment of your life. Fine.

    Just don't suggest that you seek truth. Beliner... who agrees with the NPR ideology... and how Berliner's been treated, prove that no seeker of truth can abide NPR these days.


  12. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 2:15 pm
    It may come as shock to some, but much of the news on NPR is not political in nature. Below are stories I heard this morning.

  13. by HatetheSwamp on April 17, 2024 2:38 pm

    Curt,

    Berliner's stats still go undisputed. The number of independent and GOP listeners, as a percentage of the total audience, has shrunk radically.

    All of us bring our preferences and prejudices to every moment of our lives. NPR these days shares your worldview and it enables the preferences and prejudices.

    It is the precise definition of the woke, white electric limousine lovin progressive SwampMedia.

    It's you. It's po. It ain't America.


  14. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 3:26 pm
    HtS,
    By "under fire", you mean Republican snowflakes are having a tizzy because NPR doesn't gullibly repeat or report Trump's mendacious talking points, at least not without a caveat.

    Some Republican member of Congress might grandstand about this "scandal" and demand that all federal funding stop immediately, but without mentioning that NPR gets less that 1% of their budget from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which is federally funded.


  15. by HatetheSwamp on April 17, 2024 3:34 pm

    "Tizzy?"

    "Scandal?"

    Some GOPs are perturbed that public media doesn't serve the public. Other than that...

    An increasing number of people who are moderate or conservative realize that NPR and PBS no longer inform. They foist wokeness. Many of them, I think, have decided that, if they want to be preached at, they can go to a church.


  16. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 5:24 pm
    So it's not a tizzy, Republican snowflakes are just "perturbed" by a perceived lack of Republicans on the staff of a radio network that they never listen to and certainly never donate to.

    Let me know when NPR loses a defamation case for spreading lies like FOX News or OAN. Just today it was reported that Pro-Trump network OAN and Smartmatic settled a 2020 election defamation case, but you know that OAN ended up paying big bucks to Smartmatic. They just don't have to admit.


  17. by Curt_Anderson on April 17, 2024 5:59 pm
    Berliner's essay HAS been disputed.

    “Morning Edition” host Steve Inskeep, writing on his Substack on Tuesday, fact-checked or contextualized several of the arguments Berliner made. For instance: Berliner wrote that he once asked “why we keep using that word that many Hispanics hate — Latinx.” Inskeep said he searched 90 days of NPR’s content and found “Latinx” was used nine times — “usually by a guest” — compared to the nearly 400 times “Latina” and “Latino” were used.

    “This article needed a better editor,” Inskeep wrote. “I don’t know who, if anyone, edited Uri’s story, but they let him publish an article that discredited itself. ... A careful read of the article shows many sweeping statements for which the writer is unable to offer evidence.”

    [Berliner] also writes, without proper context, his critics say, about NPR’s newsroom — that NPR’s D.C. headquarters is politically homogenous because it employs 87 registered Democrats and zero Republicans.

    Tony Cavin, NPR’s managing editor of standards and practices, told The Post that “I have no idea where he got that number,” that NPR’s newsroom has 660 employees, and that “I know a number of our hosts and staff are registered as independents.” That includes Inskeep, who, on his Substack, backed up Cavin’s assessment.

    Yikes! Defensive, eh?

    You substituting Fox for Trump?

    Instead of Trump Trump Trump Trump. It's,

    Fox Fox Fox Fox
    Fox Fox Fox Fox
    Fox Fox Fox Fox... FOX!!!!!

    Fox can be every bit the cesspool you imagine but that doesn't change the fact that NPR is a woke, white electric limousine lovin joke.

    Lead- Ditto.

    "The lady doth protest too much, methinks"

    Perhaps still reeling from actually understanding how little he knew about the DOJ/FBI issues? When he gets defensive there's a lot of "but whatabouts" being posted. It's his only defense when he doesn't have any logical platform for his hatred and gets calls out for subject changing.

    Back to NPR. It has always been somewhat liberal. Nothing wrong with that. Growing up, you just knew it was more of a standard dem liberalism. So pro- working class, etc. In the past few years though, they've taken the deep dive into thinking they can ride those coat-tails and say/do anything they want and still get respect. That's not the case.

    For many though (like curt), they are still the truth sayers and beacons of "idealism." They were on the forefront of the russiagate lie, pedojr's laptop denial, absolutism supporting DOJ/FBI illegal misuse of the FISA, etc. They still stay in their lane, and are about "subjects" and not naming "people" unless one of curt's trifecta's does. So they stay hidden behind daddy's skirts.

    Watch. Jesse Watters and Chris Rufo letting NPR CEO Catherine Maher skewer herself with her own words.

    Next you’ll be trying to tell us Bill Maher is a liberal. 😂


  22. by HatetheSwamp on April 18, 2024 9:49 am

    I will say that Maher is a liberal according to the 60s and 70s definition. Pretty much what pb is... OD, too, probably.

    What it means today? I dunno. po-ism?


  23. by Curt_Anderson on April 18, 2024 10:01 am
    Bill Maher is libertarian and a libertine. He's not a liberal although he leans in that direction. He's correct on a lot of issues but not all.


  24. by HatetheSwamp on April 18, 2024 10:15 am

    Maher is pretty much what a lib was... back in the day.


  25. by Curt_Anderson on April 18, 2024 10:26 am
    If you are considered a liberal based on "back in the day" standards, you are not a liberal. Thomas Jefferson was considered progressive back in his day, and he owned slaves. If your progressive political views stopped decades ago, you haven't progressed much.
