Attacks on NPR Are Attacks on Us All

I’ve listened to attacks on NPR for decades. At their base, is a demand that opinions on creationism deserve equal time with evolution, trickledown economics is as valid as Keynesian investment strategies, unregulated Capitalism is better than a managed socio-economic policy, Christian fundamentalism is morally superior to other religions, Coal can be as clean as Solar power to generate electricity, Corporations have the same rights as people, assault weapons in the hands of the general public is a constitutional right that makes sense and free speech extends to stirring disturbed people to assassinate abortion doctors and moderate political representatives.

The day the tax exempt religious propagandists, like the 700 Club, are held to the same standard, I’ll listen to the argument. Until then, stay out of the way of the fact based opinion or tax religious misinformation channels & have them broadcast the truth along with their self-serving fairy tales.
