Why would you spread lies about this?

NPR was conceived at Wingspread.

Why is the Foundation removing articles from their web site?

This makes them look SO desperate. Thank God somebody archived this:

Everyone should save this archived link.

You can also still verify that NPR had it's "roots in Wingspread conference center" on the history portion of their website: https://www.wingspread.com/about/history-of-wingspread

I archived that just in case it also gets removed: https://web.archive.org/web/20220814072352/https://www.wingspread.com/about/history-of-wingspread

Thank you.

They control the Internet and have operatives ask for sauce in order to plug the holes. They do it subtly over time. Or they shut down entire sites like Voat.

There are many agents of malice that migrated here to WIN desperate to turn the community against digging into Racine.

Here is another article, straight from the source:

Wingspread was the Johnson family home through the 1950s, and was then donated to The Johnson Foundation to be an enduring source of inspiration as an educational conference center. H.F. founded The Johnson Foundation to be a convener of experts for positive change leading to healthier environments and communities.

Over more than 50 years, Wingspread has hosted hundreds of conferences and been the birthplace of organizations including the National Endowment for the Arts, the International Criminal Court and National Public Radio.
