    I do have a problem with such blatant partisanship from a partially funded government entity though. if they want to pull crap like this they need to be private funded only.

    Interestingly, this would have been my FIRST thought.... instead of the :lol::lol::lol::lol:. I don't actually find the waste of taxpayers money to be very :lol::lol::lol::lol:.

    I think they will lose their funding. And, I'll be happy that they do.

    Looks like George Soros's money is already starting to pay dividends for him.

    Now who on the left said all that Soros hoopla was just bogus rhetoric?

    well there is two things:

    1) it is good to know about the fake grass root movements as it helps weed out corporate influence over elections

    2) if the only reason they did this was a backlash against republicans for their recent defense of juan williams then it a great misuse of taxpayer funds

    its really two separate issues discussed in two separate posts

    It's nice to see some honesty that most people will admit that NPR is a liberal rag.

    They won't lose funding though, there's no way anyone will want to look like they are commiting censorship.

    That would be a tuff minded decision. Anyone know 51 tuff minded Senators? (ever?)
