I’ve listened to NPR every single day for ten years

March 15th, 2011

And I’m not bothered that NPR has a liberal bias.

What really disturbs me is that they seriously believe that they don’t.

It’s a level of self-deception that borders on the pathological.

    Does anyone ever think they’re biased? Or do we just think we’re right?

    Why can’t you be both? ;)

    I could agree with you, but then we’d both be wrong.

    I never understood why the Sesame Street brand had to be on taxpayer subsidized TV. The amount of money they rake in on merchandising is huge.

    So you are saying it’s kind of like believing in trickle down economics?

    Listened to NPR for 10 years? Are you into S&M Elliot this sure seems like a version of it.

    I used to subscribe to Time & Newsweek, too, Chris.

    I’m not sure if I moved right over the years or those publications moved left.

    Or maybe the entire American political spectrum moved right and now regressives (opposite of progressives, right?) think anything left of Fox News (i.e. anything that actually reports some modicum of truth) has a liberal bias.

    As they say, reality has a liberal bias.
