I was busy today buddy... I hadn't gotten to it yet.



It's a great article. Uri Berliner is a badass for coming out with these statements and having receipts to back it up.


But here's the thing, right... Both you and I have known for a VERY long time that this was exactly the case at NPR. We also know that it's also the case at CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Salon, Vox, Buzzfeed, the entirety of Hollywood, the entirety of College Administrations, every Triple A video game publisher, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Wizards of the Coast and so, so, so many more places.

Yeah, it's great that somebody is coming out to talk about it, but is that going to make any difference at all?

Doubtful...

Remember those 2 men and a women who teamed up to submit a lot of literally INSANE Leftist points of view on papers they were submitting to the "Academics" who are charged with approving them for publication in peer-reviewed Journals?

These 3...

/

That was in 2018. That was 6 years ago now. What has happened since then? Who knows? But you know that they haven't taken care of the 100% hard-Left Democrat administration problem at any of these colleges.


Is NPR going to get fixed? Why would it? If it starts dialing it back and giving a healthy mix of opinions and tries to be luke warm it's going to lose its current audience. Would word get around and would it pick up a large audience in the middle? Maybe... but enough to displace all the hate filled people who listen to NPR every day right now? The audience who they've been riling up about EVERYTHING for at least the last 7 years that aren't going to listen anymore if they have one single opinion that they don't agree with? Who knows?

That's a big risk for them. They could lose a lot of money if they change anything.... And I mean Anything.



But hey... It could happen.

but appreciate you giving it a thread of its own. Thanks to THUGR'S relentless self-promotion ... 31 bumped threads on this page alone! ... interesting posts sift down to the bottom.

Who do you think should respond?

THUGR and SECOND would NEVER acknowledge that their sources are tainted.
JAYNZE, I believe, doesn't live in the Americas and probably doesn't know NPR. Also, he seems to draw from Telegram, TikTok, etc.
JEWELSTAITEFAN probably doesn't even listen to M$M much less NPR, so this might be irrelevant to him.
SIX and I ... well, we responded.

OTOH posts get a lot more views than replies.

"An Open-Minded Spirit No Longer Exists Within NPR" - NPR Veteran Excoriates Outlet Over Hunter, Russiagate Activism or ...

I’ve Been at NPR for 25 Years. Here’s How We Lost America’s Trust.

...

Like many unfortunate things, the rise of advocacy took off with Donald Trump. As in many newsrooms, his election in 2016 was greeted at NPR with a mixture of disbelief, anger, and despair. (Just to note, I eagerly voted against Trump twice but felt we were obliged to cover him fairly.) But what began as tough, straightforward coverage of a belligerent, truth-impaired president veered toward efforts to damage or topple Trump’s presidency.

Persistent rumors that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia over the election became the catnip that drove reporting. At NPR, we hitched our wagon to Trump’s most visible antagonist, Representative Adam Schiff.

Schiff, who was the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, became NPR’s guiding hand, its ever-present muse. By my count, NPR hosts interviewed Schiff 25 times about Trump and Russia. During many of those conversations, Schiff alluded to purported evidence of collusion. The Schiff talking points became the drumbeat of NPR news reports.

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

It is one thing to swing and miss on a major story. Unfortunately, it happens. You follow the wrong leads, you get misled by sources you trusted, you’re emotionally invested in a narrative, and bits of circumstantial evidence never add up. It’s bad to blow a big story.

What’s worse is to pretend it never happened, to move on with no mea culpas, no self-reflection. Especially when you expect high standards of transparency from public figures and institutions, but don’t practice those standards yourself. That’s what shatters trust and engenders cynicism about the media.

Russiagate was not NPR’s only miscue.

In October 2020, the New York Post published the explosive report about the laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware computer shop containing emails about his sordid business dealings. With the election only weeks away, NPR turned a blind eye. Here’s how NPR’s managing editor for news at the time explained the thinking: “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions.”

But it wasn’t a pure distraction, or a product of Russian disinformation, as dozens of former and current intelligence officials suggested. The laptop did belong to Hunter Biden. Its contents revealed his connection to the corrupt world of multimillion-dollar influence peddling and its possible implications for his father.

The laptop was newsworthy. But the timeless journalistic instinct of following a hot story lead was being squelched. During a meeting with colleagues, I listened as one of NPR’s best and most fair-minded journalists said it was good we weren’t following the laptop story because it could help Trump.

When the essential facts of the Post’s reporting were confirmed and the emails verified independently about a year and a half later, we could have fessed up to our misjudgment. But, like Russia collusion, we didn’t make the hard choice of transparency.

Politics also intruded into NPR’s Covid coverage, most notably in reporting on the origin of the pandemic. One of the most dismal aspects of Covid journalism is how quickly it defaulted to ideological story lines. For example, there was Team Natural Origin—supporting the hypothesis that the virus came from a wild animal market in Wuhan, China. And on the other side, Team Lab Leak, leaning into the idea that the virus escaped from a Wuhan lab.

The lab leak theory came in for rough treatment almost immediately, dismissed as racist or a right-wing conspiracy theory. Anthony Fauci and former NIH head Francis Collins, representing the public health establishment, were its most notable critics. And that was enough for NPR. We became fervent members of Team Natural Origin, even declaring that the lab leak had been debunked by scientists.

...

Reporting on a possible lab leak soon became radioactive. Fauci and Collins apparently encouraged the March publication of an influential scientific paper known as “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2.” Its authors wrote they didn’t believe “any type of laboratory-based scenario is plausible.”

But the lab leak hypothesis wouldn’t die. And understandably so. In private, even some of the scientists who penned the article dismissing it sounded a different tune. One of the authors, Andrew Rambaut, an evolutionary biologist from Edinburgh University, wrote to his colleagues, “I literally swivel day by day thinking it is a lab escape or natural.”

Over the course of the pandemic, a number of investigative journalists made compelling, if not conclusive, cases for the lab leak. But at NPR, we weren’t about to swivel or even tiptoe away from the insistence with which we backed the natural origin story. We didn’t budge when the Energy Department—the federal agency with the most expertise about laboratories and biological research—concluded, albeit with low confidence, that a lab leak was the most likely explanation for the emergence of the virus.

Instead, we introduced our coverage of that development on February 28, 2023, by asserting confidently that “the scientific evidence overwhelmingly points to a natural origin for the virus.”

When a colleague on our science desk was asked why they were so dismissive of the lab leak theory, the response was odd. The colleague compared it to the Bush administration’s unfounded argument that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, apparently meaning we won’t get fooled again. But these two events were not even remotely related. Again, politics were blotting out the curiosity and independence that ought to have been driving our work.

...
to truly understand how independent journalism suffered at NPR, you need to step inside the organization.

You need to start with former CEO John Lansing. Lansing came to NPR in 2019 from the federally funded agency that oversees Voice of America.

...

the message from the top was very different. America’s infestation with systemic racism was declared loud and clear: it was a given. Our mission was to change it.

“When it comes to identifying and ending systemic racism,” Lansing wrote in a companywide article, “we can be agents of change. Listening and deep reflection are necessary but not enough. They must be followed by constructive and meaningful steps forward. I will hold myself accountable for this.”

And we were told that NPR itself was part of the problem.
In confessional language he said the leaders of public media, “starting with me—must be aware of how we ourselves have benefited from white privilege in our careers. We must understand the unconscious bias we bring to our work and interactions. And we must commit ourselves—body and soul—to profound changes in ourselves and our institutions.”

He declared that diversity—on our staff and in our audience—was the overriding mission, the “North Star” of the organization. Phrases like “that’s part of the North Star” became part of meetings and more casual conversation.

Race and identity became paramount in nearly every aspect of the workplace.

I'm half the mind at this point that Haken is CIA. It's doubtful that Haken who created this site was, because who would have thought that the RWED of some random fansite would have turned into not only a hotbed of the most kind of vile arguing over politics, but a literal time capsule of the era it's been online where you can see the sea changes in public opinion like counting rings in a tree.

The entire site is searchable on Google and always has been. And even though there are only 5 regular posters left and a few that drop in from time to time, the lights are still on with no word that those days might ever be coming to an end... And those page views, especially on certain topics just keep going up and up and up.

99.999999% of the people of the world would find what little discourse that remains here today entirely boring or just downright distasteful. But in the right hands I'm sure it's still interesting to somebody, and the chances are very low that in all the years this site has been around at least one or two of those people didn't find it many, many years ago.

At this point, I've got to keep using it all the time. If I walk away before it's shut down, that sizable unknown audience we've got here is going to be wondering what I'm up to, and that just wouldn't be right.

Sorry for not posting right away. I don't normally rush to a computer to make posts every minute.
Allergy season here, so been a rough few days.


NPR - they have been the Propaganda wing of the Democrap Party since the 80's, right? I occasionally hear their nonsense, by accident, and listen just to hear what the enemy of Free Speech has for Talking Points.

Now you have reminded me.... It is about the Anniversary of Fauci creating the AIDS Hoax, with that whole HIV nonsense.
In 1983 it was hypothesized (I think by Duesberg) that the AIDS invention was caused by HIV. And within 8-9 months he quickly had proven his own hypothesis false.
But by that time, in 1984, Fauci had seized upon this hokum as a temporary fiction to propel the AIDS religion. Fauci knew that this nonsense was too unbelievable for the public to swallow - nobody is that gullible in the end - so he got another to be the front man for this religion - which was Robert Gallo (already TWICE found guilty of Scientific Fraud).
Then the religion took off, to Fauci's surprise. Fauci denied his involvement and his creation of the fallacy, for decades - until late in the first decade of the century he finally admitted that it was him, Fauci, who invented the AIDS Virus.
NPR really pushed the AIDS religion like no other.

So how can we be surprised that NPR again gets fooled by Fauci's inventions and lies? Seems self-evident.

JSF, you and SIX are remarkably ignorant about biochemistry, immune systems, and infectious diseases.

Thanks to a series of unfortunate family medical encounters, I've had to learn way, waaaay too much about all that (mostly autoimmunity).

So let me fill you in with a little of what I learned and explain where my understanding ends.

Your immune system is probably the most dangerous thing, to you. It kills 99.999% of everything that enters your body that doesn't belong there, including BTW cancer cells, thru your lifetime. It has dozens of components - cells like B cells, T cells, helper T cells, and macrophages, and chemicals like tumor necrosis factors, interluekins, immunoglobulins, cytokines, chemokines, histamine, antibodies, complement factors, etc

Sometimes it goes haywire and attacks what it shouldn't, like your own cells. That's autoimmunity.

Sometimes it overeacts with histamine and IgE to foreign subtances that are essentially harmless. That's ALLERGIES.

And sometimes it's defective. One component is broken and it doesn't work well, or at all. That's immune deficiency. Some people are born with it. Remember bubble boy?



Maybe you're too young for that, but he had severe combined immunodeficiency.

Other people acquire an immune system defect during their lifetime, sometimes deliberately (for example, to halt transplanted organ rejection or throttle an autoimmune response), sometimes accidentally thru exposure to chemicals (cadmium, polycycliv HCs, dioxins, glycols ethers, and mycotxins i.e. mold toxins) and sometimes thru infection with viruses, parasites, and bacteria.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7258708/

The inactivation of the immune system by various chemicals and biologic agents is well known and nothing new.

I knew someone who got AIDS, thru a blood transfusion. Not thru gay sex or the "gay lifestyle". You've never been able to explain non-sexual transmission of acquired immunodeficiency.

I knew someone else who got AIDS the "old fashioned" way: gay sex. He didn't engage in random bathhouse sex, or inhale popers or do coke or any of the "gay lifestyle causes" of AIDS. Not bc he didn't want to but bc he was butt ugly, and gays who engage in that lifestyle tend to be EXTREMELY looks conscious. Nope! It was just one unwise and unprotected encounter.

That's where my understanding and experience ends. It's way above my pay grade and I don't pretend to be an expert like you.

All I've got to say about AIDS is that it was blown extremely out of proportion if it is real and it terrorized an entire generation out of having sex with the constant propaganda shown to them on TV, even during Saturday morning cartoons along the anti-drug PSAs. (Specifically, Generation X)

Maybe it WAS a big thing in California. As you know, I'm from the Midwest. I have not only never known anybody who had AIDS, but I've never known anybody who has known anybody who had AIDS.

Now, granted, I'm pretty much an open book in real life about my medical diagnosis as I am online. And I already know that this behavior is quite likely the anomaly. Not only because on a personal level I've known some people who were very sick and are no longer with us that I wasn't even aware were sick until the very end because they kept that information to themselves, but with the shockingly high amount of Americans who struggle with Diabetes in one form or another, I've only known 3 people in my life who I know for sure have it.

Statistically speaking, more than 1 out of 10 people I've ever met in my life have Diabetes, and 1/3rd of those people still aren't aware that they have it. (I hope that they all find out far earlier than I did).


But when it's under control, if you're not the gabby type, it actually would be quite easy for people to go about their lives hiding that from other people they're not intimate with. Very easy for type 2 diabetics, but even doable for type 1 diabetics.

AIDS may be the same way today with the drugs available, but for half my life AIDS was a death sentence...

... or at least that's the message they beat us over the head with every day in school and on TV advertisements.

Back on topic...


It would appear that Roger Ream over at The Hill agrees with my take on it...


NPR editor’s tell-all confirms what we already knew about the media

https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/4588408-npr-editors-tell-all-conf
irms-what-we-already-knew-about-the-media
/

It's a good read. I'm surprised The Hill would even post it, but that's why I'm still grateful that some outfits even have an "Opinion" section anymore. Honestly, I think that's a necessity in 2024. It's where you can put everything you're afraid your audience or staff wouldn't approve of and you can give us that official looking disclaimer making it very, very clear to all of us that "these views don't express your own".



You should read it all, but he finishes it all off with the following...

Quote:

Regardless of the troubling trends in American journalism, we should all recognize the importance of a free, fair and functioning press. The current situation is alarming news for our Republic, which assumes a well-informed public that can sustain our system of government and way of life. By supporting the next generation of fair-minded journalists and bringing traditional journalistic values back into newsrooms, we can restore balance to this critical American institution – and save a future Uri Berliner from needing to write a similar tell-all


And I'd add a reminder to the Republican Minded people that we're looking for parity here. No majority. No tie breakers. And certainly no swinging the pendulum the other way past the middle.

You are supposed to be working for We The People. But somewhere along the line you stopped doing that and started working as a mouthpiece for whichever "wing" of the Uniparty happened to be in control of the money on that day.

And the really messed up thing is that I'm going to be 50 when the guy we ultimately put in charge in November is handing the keys of Air Force One to the next person... and I still have no real answer in my mind regarding the question about whether those in your profession, oblivious to it or not, have been working for the Government for my entire life, or if that all only happened some time after I was born.

Right now, honestly... I think I'd come off as the world's biggest idiot if I said I believed anything other than it all happened a LONG time before I was born.

So with all due respect, I think if you could see this all from my perspective, this story just coming out at NPR concerning events that happened over the last 10 years just doesn't have the dramatic impact for me that you might think it would.

I assume that you don't really understand the bigger picture here. You believe you're standing outside of the box right now. And you are... standing outside A box... but you don't realize that there's a much bigger box around you, with people looking at you, looking at me. Or is it vice versa now? It hardly matters. Our boxes are mere pieces of a Matryoshka Doll House, with God presumably being the only one in the room who knows how many layers actually engulf us.


We'll probably never know or understand what's beyond the next bigger box, but here's the deal in this Box....

The first time that Radio spread into enough households in a neighborhood that people started talking to each other about things they never would have otherwise thought to talk to each other about...

That's when somebody figured it all out.

This wasn't entertainment. This was the next best thing to having actual mind control powers.


We look at the ancient radio as trite and cute today. But it changed us. It altered the trajectory of the entire human race, and in a sense it put direction to something that was otherwise full of tiny individual self-centered and self-serving parts that were vastly incapable of cooperation on a grand scale for the long-term.

Over time... We were all domesticated. Radio, and all the technological advancements on the concept past, present and future has domesticated us as a species and it's not finished with us yet.

Before the radio was ubiquitous, we were all individual.

Imagine it...

Individuals with Individual Families that lived on Individual Blocks and shopped at Individual Grocery Stores for meat and produce from their Individual Neighbors who ran the Individual Farms and they sent their Individual Kids to their Individual Schools where they learned their Individual Lessons and told each other their Individual Jokes and invented their own little Individual Urban Legends during recess while sliding down their Individual Slides and swinging on their Individual Swing Sets.

Individual Towns that cooperated with each other for services and resources inside of Individual States so big that so many of those Individual Towns inside them never bothered even communicating with each other because there wasn't any damn good economical Individual Reason to ever bother even doing that.

We had Individual Coal Mines and We had Individual Factories. Individual Groups of Individual Pros built us Individual Houses that all looked different from one another because of that Individual Touch. Individual Police Forces were there to protect the Individual Communities, and they knew all of the Individual People by name.

Individual Secrets divulged in the darkness of Individual Taverns while Individual Musicians played Individual Songs about Individual Heartbreak.

Individual Churches... well... Honestly? They may have just been the furthest thing away from Individuality in those Individual Days.

Individual Think and everything that came with it all disappeared from existence, only understood as lore and fairy tales to our Collective Cookie-Cutter Consciousness After Radio.

*POOF!*

Anything Before Radio became a "you had to be there to understand it" moment, and one day sometime soon, when the last person alive who remembered living Before Radio dies, the last remaining consciousness that understood what it meant to be alive Before Radio will be lost forever to us along with them.

Think about that... If we ever manage to figure out how to upload someone's consciousness to a technological network one day, unless they figure out time travel too, there won't be a single consciousness recorded that knows what life was like before the world started quickly getting much smaller.

And today we put a high definition 5"x9" flashy screen in our babies hands once they're old enough to take out their pacifier. They don't even stand a chance.

I dare you to try to find somebody 45 years old born and raised in America who doesn't know who The New Kids on the Block are. Then find me somebody under 10 years old anywhere in the world who had even ever heard of them. I'm not saying that neither exists, but their occurrences in nature might be the only thing that is more rare than journalistic integrity.

And that, I believe, brings us back to you knuckleheads and this quote...

Quote:

Yes. We want the news to be TRUTHFULLY fair and balanced.

Nobody gets pats on the back for what should have always been the case and certainly what should have always been expected out of Our Journalists.

That is nothing more than merely the beginning of what We want.

Fair and Balanced doesn't mean shit if you don't mean it.

And as long as any of you are working from the bias of one side or the other of our Government, you're not working for The People.

And furthermore... any of you taking Boner Pill or Covid money from Pfizer can just go right ahead now and fuck off out of the room and close the door behind you.



So please... Roger Ream of The Fund for American Studies.

Show us what actual Journalists do.

Prove to us that Journalism is something that we're even still capable of doing anymore in 2024.

I want to Believe.

Show me.

The person I knew you got AIDS from a transfusion was a temp who was kind of passing thru the lab, but since he reported to me he told me about his dx bc he needed time off for for Dr appts. The gay guy had no filter and for some reason chose to confide in me about his love life (poor guy! That's all I can say!) and health. I got an update about everything!

Anyway, I agree with you that the response to AIDS was .... dysfunctional, at best.

Once they figured out it was a sexually transmitted virus, instead of treating AIDS like any sexually transmitted disease by reporting, tracking, and and tracing ... the gay lobby had such a huge influence they allowed people to keep their AIDS status secret. Keep the bathhouses open. It was ridiculous!

So instead of corralling the virus they wanted EVERYONE to get it so that gays couldn't be singled out.

And even when they knew it could be deactivated by alcohol and prevented by condoms (physical barrier) they terrified everyone with it.

Typical power grab ... in this case, by the gay lobby.

"This Person Is A Crazy Racist": New NPR CEO Exposed As Woke Activist

Last week, veteran NPR reporter Uri Berliner - a longtime 'Subaru driving' lefty who was raised by a 'lesbian peace activist mother' - wrote a scathing report accusing the network of overwhelming bias.

Introspection was the last thing on NPR's mind, however, as new CEO Katherine Maher chastised Berliner as "profoundly disrespectful, hateful, and demeaning" to his colleagues for calling out political bias.

As Jonathan Turley notes:

In a memo Friday, Maher told the staff that Berliner attacked not only “the quality of our editorial process and the integrity of our journalists” but “our people on the basis of who we are.”

...

Maher’s response was hardly surprising. She was a controversial hire at NPR. Many had hoped that NPR would seek a CEO who could steer the company away from its partisan and activistic trend. The prospect could have brought moderates and conservatives back into NPR’s listening audience. Maher, however, was part of that trend.


This should come as no surprise given Maher's history as a complete lunatic who spews woke diatribes on X - calling herself "someone with cis white mobility privilege" and other nonsense.

In response to journalist Chris Rufo pointing this out, Elon Musk replied that she's a "crazy racist!"

Maher also says that "America is addicted to white supremacy," which is the "real issue."

She also excused looters, and even slammed Hillary Clinton for correctly gendering individuals.

What's the answer? Donald Trump suggests defunding them.

Oh, NPR, NPR....


Given that Uri Berliner found himself so openly at odds with the old NPR regime, and the new regime was probably going to be even more rabid, I wondered if he was going to do a "Tucker Carlson/ Matt Taibbi" and jump off the train.

Well, he didn't jump, he's being pushed...

If he finds a good place to land, this could be the best thing that ever happened to him. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't have a reputation for hard hitting TRUTHFUL investigative journalism. The journalistic world doesn't have a place for soft semi- compliant liberals with a conscience.

Not that NPR means much to many people here, but IMHO since reality doesn't adhere to a narrative, if you're aiming to understand the world you will in all probability land on both sides of whatever narrative divde exists. That is, you will probably piss off people on both sides of whatever divide exists, especially in a polarized society where people have chosen sides and aren't thinking, they're primed to get angry.

I wonder if there's a place in today's society for reporters like that, or if respect for understanding is too long gone.

"This Person Is A Crazy Racist": New NPR CEO Exposed As Woke Activist

Last week, veteran NPR reporter Uri Berliner - a longtime 'Subaru driving' lefty who was raised by a 'lesbian peace activist mother' - wrote a scathing report accusing the network of overwhelming bias.

Introspection was the last thing on NPR's mind, however, as new CEO Katherine Maher chastised Berliner as "profoundly disrespectful, hateful, and demeaning" to his colleagues for calling out political bias.

As Jonathan Turley notes:

In a memo Friday, Maher told the staff that Berliner attacked not only “the quality of our editorial process and the integrity of our journalists” but “our people on the basis of who we are.”

...

Maher’s response was hardly surprising. She was a controversial hire at NPR. Many had hoped that NPR would seek a CEO who could steer the company away from its partisan and activistic trend. The prospect could have brought moderates and conservatives back into NPR’s listening audience. Maher, however, was part of that trend.


This should come as no surprise given Maher's history as a complete lunatic who spews woke diatribes on X - calling herself "someone with cis white mobility privilege" and other nonsense.

In response to journalist Chris Rufo pointing this out, Elon Musk replied that she's a "crazy racist!"

Maher also says that "America is addicted to white supremacy," which is the "real issue."

She also excused looters, and even slammed Hillary Clinton for correctly gendering individuals.

What's the answer? Donald Trump suggests defunding them.

I don't get it.

How is this going to help eradicate all the Jews that you are working so hard towards?

There's no money in it anymore, so it won't be done.
