How are tax payer dollars still funding this completely biased LEFTIST trash??? I sometimes accidentally flick to the radio station and it's insufferable to listen to. Self important White liberals acting like they're being informed about "issues."
Whats that saying? wait...wait... dont tell me...
GET WOKE... GO BROKE!!!
A decade+ ago when I'd listen to them on the weekends... they had Paula Poundstone as a long time panel member on that show. She molested a young boy and barely got a slap on the wrist.
I wish more people knew this is the proper saying...
I cringe when I see people say "go woke go broke". Especially on this site.
"If thou shall leaveth in a state most awakened... That thou looseth thy coin purse."
Kek. Dost though even hoist?
Please explain why get is better. It feels awkward to me
Trump should have taken their scalp.
But he let it slide, didn't he.
C'mon now, very few people understand the depravity of the Left. Trump exposed all of it and opened our eyes. It's easy to say what he should of done in hindsight, but he came into the presidency as a businessman that worked deals and compromised for the greater good. He wasn't ready for Democrats that hate America and would sink all Americans into poverty just to get their way.
He exposed a lot of it. There is still quite a bit that
the public will need to see before the Evil Cabal is
remind him next time
10% is chump change. I don’t believe anyone would miss NPR if they folded completely.
Or NYT, WaPo, CNN, MSNBC etc. NPR sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Pfizer
Some people would but they're people who would be better off without it.
I listen to it to laugh, they once were propagating the claim that doctors without borders was racist because the doctors were....get this mostly white. What a bunch of absolute trash.
Dems had a bill 2 years ago that would fund every "news outlet" with taxpayer funds. Probably including Fox News, the one that constantly makes money.
if you are funded by tax payer dollars and have a 30 million loss, you should be shut down.
Ukraine has entered the chat.
USG has entered the chat.
EBT has purchased ice cream.
It's even worse than that. They're funded by tax payer dollars,
advertisers"underwriters", and directly from listeners and somehow they're still losing money.
Cause they're garbage. If they actually served the public properly, as they claim, plenty of people would listen to them.
Is there any part of our government that knows how to budget? What an absolute disgrace.
Imagine losing even $100k of investor money. There better be a damn good reason you lost that money along with a plan to get back in the black. The only reason they don't care is the majority of that money is stolen from us and given to an obviously biased state media outlet.
Why don’t the dirty hippies work for free, like they want us to work for free? or find a way for the government to push through some form of taxation where you don’t pay a single dime if you work for a nonprofit? oh, wait, I know why.
I would expect more to turn to onlyfans
Code? They can’t even meme.
AI is already taking over coding. This happened in the last 6 months.
Defund NPR. There is no reason for state sponsored media in this day and age
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty?
Oh, no! How will they fund "Tennessee musicians grapple with the potential impact of new anti-drag law"????
Not one American citizen tax-payer dime for this communist/socialist/(D) propaganda.
If they cannot survive market forces (good bad and ugly), then let them die.
Once again, it seems the Lefty Commie organizations aren't pandering enough to the RabidLeftyBase, either in the mainstream or in Congress, to keep the lights on.
Let it die.
National Propaganda Radio should get zero tax dollars. Too bad our side doesn't work together to shut this type of garbage down. Sad.
Because it's yet another welfare program for the trust fund kids that are too dumb to go into politics. And that's REALLY fucking dumb.
NOTE they cut good content, not news. The good content (I listen to some of these podcasts) is just "beard" to make it look like NPR is committed to making things worth listening, but, their real mission is as a counter-Trump narrative news machine.
Whenever the local town has a budget crunch it's the public facing services they cut first, it's never the fluff or make-work positions
30 million to produce podcasts seems a little excessive to me
college radio stations broadcast on budgets of $10K for an entire year
Wait Wait Don't Tell me was fucking insufferable. Add to that, they had Paula Poundstone as a long time guest. Didn't she molest a young boy?
It was a funny show pre-Obama. That's when NPR really went off the rails.
I used to listen to it long ago when I'd drive a lot. It was effette and elitist then. I turned by back on NPR after the Ferguson riots.
In October 2001, Poundstone was charged with felony child endangerment in connection with driving while intoxicated with her children in the car. She was also charged with three counts of lewd acts upon a girl younger than 14. The charge involved inappropriate touching of a 12-year-old girl. In a plea bargain, she changed her earlier plea of not guilty, and in exchange prosecutors asked for the court records to be sealed, dropped three counts of committing lewd acts against a child, and added a misdemeanor count of inflicting injury upon a child. Poundstone also pleaded no contest to one count of felony child endangerment. She was barred from taking in foster children again, sentenced to five years of probation and six months in rehabilitation, and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service, attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and a child-abuse program, and receive random drug and alcohol tests. In 2002, Poundstone talked about her personal responsibility for the events that led to her arrest and the steps she has taken, including a six-month treatment program for alcoholism, but she said that she did not commit any lewd acts or child abuse.
Sealed court records? Any (D)emocrat can open those. They never will for one of (their) own of course
That's how Obama beat Jeri Ryan's (7of9) ex for the Senate.
Just what I was thinking about when I wrote my comment
Our federal government needs to be completely stripped and rebuilt. It's far too corrupt and bloated that no one in government sees a problem with a program losing millions of taxpayer that is completely biased to one side. We need to see where every fucking cent is put into in fed spending and states should have the power to shut it the fuck down.
They paid off the wrong people.
Is the China commie money drying up?
Wasn't it the Democrats that had requested a law saying they needed equal time on the radio because there were too many conservative talk show radio hosts?????
Shouldn't then, NPR HAVE to include the same amount of time for conservative programs on that publically funded Gov't radio channel?
You're confusing the equal time rule with the fairness doctrine.
Predominately taxpayer funded, Rockefeller Foundation contrived, and deep state owned and operated National Propaganda Radio (NPR).
Yeah, "acclaimed," sure...
Btw these are the faggiest podcast names I've ever seen.
SHUT. IT. DOWN.
10% for the little guy
NPR is fucking obsolete just let it die.
Liberals are not generous with donations and expect all the money to come from the government for these types of things.
Meanwhile, how much money is tucked into their endowment?
Just as much as their anti white racism as it is the bidenflation economy
Quit having the budget be DEI
Oh nooooo that sucks
Shut that fucking garbage down.
The official station of NPCs.
That is GREAT news. Hopefully a stiff breeze blows them over.
Fuck NPR I hope they fold
10% not good enough. We gotta up those numbers!
what is the date on this?
Never heard of any of these shows or the mentioned “spin-off”.
I hope they fail. I mean it would be nice to have a major media platform that just tried to give unadulterated truth but if NPR isn't going to do that. They should just go extinct.
