    I heard a few hosts on NPR use the term 'opine' and wondered whether there is a chance Bill O'Reilly and FOX NEWS will be filing another frivolous lawsuit over words?

    What say you?

    Fox News Drops Franken Lawsuit - CBS News

    (AP) Fox News dropped its lawsuit against Al Franken on Monday, three days after a federal judge refused to block the liberal humorist from using the Fox slogan "Fair and Balanced" on the cover of his book.

    The lawsuit had sought unspecified damages from Franken and Penguin Group, publisher of "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right."

    "It's time to return Al Franken to the obscurity that he's normally accustomed to," Fox News spokeswoman Irena Steffen said.

    I guess that circle-jerk society you live in has truly kept you in the dark..

    In the fall of 2008, NPR programming reached a record 27.5 million people weekly, according to Arbitron ratings figures. NPR stations reach 32.7 million listeners overall.[11] NPR - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Only intelligent people who want to hear the real in-depth-reported news without all the bullshit... Yes, millions of people of every political stripe listen to NPR. You are showing your ignorance.

    Like that intelligent, in-depth report on the endangered yellow-tailed lickspittle bird of Guatemala?

    Highly necessary use of tax dollars.

    Ever notice how NPR hosts/interviewers stutter all the time?
    Not individul words, but pieces of sentences.

    i.e. "So, do you... do you...."
    "What about... what about..."
    etc etc.

    Hell I'm a conservative and a listener for over 25 years now. The programming is a lot better than it used to be, but still obviously skewed to the left.

    I'll keep listening, but I'm done sending them money.

    Today in the car I heard Neta Uleby reporting on an "anime" meeting in Philadelphia and how they're sympathizing with the Japanese. It was the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard on the radio. It was like stratospheric levels of gayness.
