    I have Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know? on right now. I didn't hear his opening monologue, but good chance it put down Romney, Ryan, Scott Walker and/or Tommy Thompson. It usually does lately. And now here he is doing a chat session with Tammy Baldwin. He's giving her a free infomercial for her senate campaign.

    He is the most open Democrat shill I've come across on NPR (distributed by PRI but on the NPR stations).

    Why do I listen?


    I guess I just want to be aware of what the other side is up to, and I've always been the type to poke a sore spot to see if it is still sore. This one sure is.

    I listen to NPR more than any other station. I just tune out the bullshit.
    They do have some good programming.

    They have a monopoly.

    It's a disappointment that the right never seems to have calm, intelligent electronic media. The books, magazines, journals and websites are OK. But TV and radio are for shit: Hannity, Rush, and Fox News. Greeeaaat.

    Same as everyone else, you hate commercials.

    And as noted, excellent programming; particularly ME and ATC.

    Why do you listen to Public Radio? "Opposition Research".

    Gotta' know what the enemy is thinkin' right? Them broadcasting it makes it that much easier for you.

    That is exactly why I listen to Feldman.

    I keep Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! on afterward for the more even-handed humor. But that's why I listen to Feldman.

    Conservatives aren't very good at humor. Who is that conservative comedian they had/have on the NFL? I rest my case.

    Public Radio is like right wing talk shows, with all the intellectual stimulating discussion removed.
