Think NPR is not feeling the pressure of possible defunding …
After all these years NPR is finally considering journalistic integrity, really? As reported at The Nation, KPCC-FM, one of two NPR stations in the Los Angeles area has suspended its regularly scheduled Planned Parenthood spots. It would appear that some NPR affiliates are running scared as to upsetting Republicans in an environment where costs need to be cut.
Program director Craig Curtis explained in a Friday memo to staff members that “given that the budget debate in congress is focusing today on abortion in general and Planned Parenthood by extension,” running the spots “might raise questions in the mind of the reasonable listener regarding our editorial and sales practices.”
A “reasonable listener” might now have questions about the journalistic integrity of the station.
Journalistic integrity, hardly. It is more like what Weasel Zippers opined … “It’s almost like they don’t want to give conservatives any additional ammo”. However, will such actions only exist on the local level or will there be an all encompassing effort by NPR to give the appearance that they are “Fair and Balanced”. NPR knows that it is on the federal funding chopping block and should have been years ago.
NPR Reporter Nina Totenberg Ashamed to Say She was at a Christmas Party … “I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas Party”
What is wrong with Liberals, have they completely lost their minds and their souls. They certainly have lost their religion.
From Newsbusterscomes the following story of an NPR reporter Nina Totenberg interjected on Inside Washington, “I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party.” What? Why would she have to forgive the expression? Are NPR liberals now openly apologizing for dare referencing the word “Christmas” in public. Are we to understand that the LEFT now thinks that you cannot say the word Christmas anymore?
Why would any one apologize for saying Merry Christmas?
“I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party,” NPR reporter Nina Totenberg interjected on Inside Washington in the weekend’s oddest cautionary separation from a common description for a common event, seemingly embarrassed to invoke any religious terminology for Christmas. She didn’t say what she’d prefer for parties this time of the year to be named. “Winter solstice party”? Just plain old “holiday party”? Or a “seasonal gathering”?
Should she have said she was at a Fetivas Party?
How pathetic is it that tax payer dollars continue to go this apologetic NPR dribble. Juan Williams must be, forgive the expression, wetting himself every day that he is out of that Left-wing lunatic NPR insane assylum and he landed a big contract on Fox News.
NPR: Barack Obama’s Fat Lip Gives Him “Street Cred,” Scar Will Help Him Stare Down Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il or Putin
This is what the Obama foreign policy has come to, “street cred” through a fat lip? Who knew the Obama doctrine was “speak softly and carry a big fat lip.” NPR thinks the President getting punked by an elbow gives his street cred, how out of touch are these libs?
Just three weeks after getting a shellacking in the midterm elections, President Obama got a fat lip.
The president played basketball yesterday with some friends in the gym of the Fort McNair Army Base, and reportedly took an elbow in the mouth from an opposing player who went up for a shot.
It took 12 stitches to close The First Fat Lip, if you please. I’m not sure that Joe Frazier needed 12 stitches after the Thrilla in Manila, though the White House stressed that a smaller filament was used, which increases the number of stitches, but leaves a smaller scar.
As brilliantly stated by Weasel Zippers, “Oh yeah, instead of staring down a sissy, now they’ll be staring down a sissy with a scar…”.How clueless could the LEFT be? It would appear that they know about as much about sports as they do about politics. Trust me having played basketball, getting a fat lip is no badge of honor. I wonder what the doofuses of the LEFT would have said if Obama got his nose broken?
I wonder if having a larger scar wouldn’t actually fortify President Obama’s profile, as he contends with Kim Jong Il, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Vladimir Putin. Imagine a president with a gnarly, vivid scar telling the rulers of China, “Nice country ya’ got here. I’d hate to see something happen to it if you didn’t stop foolin’ around with the value of your currency. Know what I mean?”
But an elbow in the chops is a battle ribbon in basketball. Mediocre players don’t have to worry about their dental work. An elbow is given to aggressive players who swing their own sharp limbs to grab a ball or push off a defender, although the White House stressed that the president was elbowed inadvertently.
EXIT QUESTION: Would Obamacare have covered the stitches?
PBS EDITS Tina Fay’s “Sarah Palin” Insults During Broadcast of the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize
PBS “air brushes” Tina Fay’s comemnts to distort the liberal image.
After the NPR debacle, PBS running scared and felt the need to edit Tina Fay’s so-called comedy routine slamming Sarah Palin that was supposed to be humor. So why did PBS edit out parts of Tina Fay’s rant? We second the question posed at News Busters, what happened to Fay’s repulsive comments passed off as humor about rape kits, lesbians, and evolution jokes against conservative women?
Fey, this year’s recipient of the prize, caused a few ripples during her acceptance speech at the ceremony on Tuesday when she mock-praised “conservative women” like Sarah Palin, whom Fey has so memorably impersonated on “Saturday Night Live.”
The Sarah Palin slams begin around the 12:20 mark
Talks about LIBERAL insanity … What Planet do these people live on?
Yesterday on Fox News Sunday NPR’s Mara Liasson compared soon to be ex-Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to Winston Churchill. WHAT!!! YES, YOU HEARD THAT CORRECTLT!!! Talk about your revisionist and LIBERAL history. Nancy Pelosi can be compared to many people, Winston Churchill is not one of them.
Britt Hume chimed in and in so many words said, WTF! Mara’s thought process, or the lack thereof goes like this … Nancy Pelosi is like Winston Churchill, who led his country to a great victory. However, Pelosi who lead her partisan party to a great victory in passing Obamacare with an overwhelming Democrat majority in the House, was thrown out of power in a 62+ House seat change as her actions were deemed against the will of the people.
More from the Gateway Pundit:
Churchill lifted his country to victory.
Pro-surrender Pelosi helped democrats triple the deficit and double the unemployment rate. She rammed through nationalized health care on a strictly partisan vote.
There’s a big difference, Mara.
Mara Liasson is being a good NPR lib and obviously does not want to become the next Juan Williams.
