You can’t escape favoritism and biased “journalism” even on the public radio whose primary mission is public service and where funding comes from membership drives and the government. All that jazz is out the window where the presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is concerned: NPR has Hillary’s back.
A classic example of the “public” radio’s bias and bad reporting is immediately apparent in one of their recent “news” pieces that purported to cover the events at the recent Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. NPR’S headline read “At Al Smith Dinner, Donald Trump Turns Friendly Roast Into 3-Alarm Fire.”
Of course, Clinton and Trump-traded an equal number of sarcastic barbs at one another but NPR ignored that fact, instead choosing to hop on the liberal bandwagon to cast Donald Trump in the least favorable light possible.
NPR has joined an unhealthy fray, and along the way, loses credibility with a public who is interested in fair and unbiased coverage. National Public Radio cannot long afford to choose sides and lose realistic perspective and maintain the integrity the society expects and pays for.
