A while back I told you that one of NPR’s goals is to compete with heritage AM News/Talk stations, and in such markets like San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Washington, Denver; the NPR News/Talk stations have become competitive. In certain markets that have actually beaten that market’s heritage AM News/Talker. This is more proof that NPR’s flagship shows Morning Edition and All Things Considered are just as influential as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, and Mark Levin.
I have also said that NPR’s center-left leanings proved to be more successful than any commercial attempt to do liberal-to-progressive talk radio at the national level. Make no mistake NPR leans left just like anyone else in the so-called mainstream media.
Tim Graham of the Media Research Center just reported on an interview that the NPR midday show 1A (named after our First Amendment in our U.S. Constitution), in which Chuck Todd of NBC News was asked a question about how he can be objective but yet host a party for one time Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri and her husband. Todd’s answer; “I’m interested in rebuilding the wall a little bit…I’ve never been a big socializer in D.C., so I don’t do that..” Yet 1A host Joshua Johnson did not press Todd hard enough. Nor did Johnson mention how Todd’s party invite was exposed by WikiLeaks via an email that was found in John Podesta inbox. You say don’t make friends with elected officials and then some cause comes along and you throw journalistic integrity under the bus, Mr. Todd. You don’t follow your own advice. I admit my bias here at NOQ Report and unless Chuck Todd does the same, I say we throw HIM under the bus. Shame on Johnson for not call him out on this.
Meanwhile, NPR reporter and cheerleader Kelly McEvers denied that her news organization has an anti-Trump, anti-Republican bias. McEvers comes across is saying they are not openly biased like Univision’s Jorge Ramos is. Funny how Ramos is called the Walter Cronkite of Latin America. Maybe NPR should take a few hints from Ramos and admit they are advocates of the Democratic Party and progressive causes and are no different than the commercial news outlets.
Just more proof why NPR should be taken off its own welfare roll. That being the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. All made possible by the Mr. Great Society LBJ.
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd and his wife, a Democratic consultant, hosted a dinner party at their Washington D.C.-area home last year for Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton’s communications director.
An invitation for the shindig was sent on July 11, 2015 to John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman. Podesta’s hacked emails have been released online by Wikileaks.
The party, which also involved a cocktail hour, was thrown for Palmieri and her husband, Jim Lyons.
On November 7, the NPR talk show 1A interviewed Meet the Press host Chuck Todd and his executive producer, John Reiss to mark the 70th anniversary of the NBC News program. The most notable part of the interview came when Todd was asked about the audience getting the impression that politicians and the media get “super incestuous” in going from government into the press corps, and from the press into government, and politicians and the media going to all the same parties. Host Joshua Johnson asked Todd “How do you keep yourself an honest broker?”
Even when conservatives express their view that any adult male who seeks out underage girls is a “pervert,” they will still be questioned for suggesting the liberal media has a partisan tilt. National Public Radio’s All Things Considered has been rotating come fresh conservative pundits on their Week in Review segments on Fridays, and Orange County Register columnist John Phillips said things that David Brooks never says — that the media aren’t trusted because they advocate for the liberal side. That drew a laughable reply from NPR anchor Kelly McEvers. She denied they had an openly anti-Trump, anti-Republican bias.
How does the show keep up not only with the news, but with the changing realities of media today?
Sean Hannity responds incoherently to Roy Moore’s open letter
Fox News host Sean Hannity called on Roy Moore to respond to the sexual misconduct allegations that have dominated the news for a week. Moore sent an open letter, which Hannity read on the air Wednesday night. He then responded and essentially said nothing.
It’s not that he didn’t speak words. He spoke many. It’s that Hannity sounded borderline incoherent. The transcript of his response reads like a President Trump off-the-cuff statement.
“The people of Alabama, they need to know the truth, and they’ve got to have all the facts that they need,” he said. “And that means that the Alabama voters can make an educated, informed, inclusive decision for their state when they go to the polls.”
If you just read through it casually or hear it passively, it might sound somewhat normal. Read it more carefully and it’s really not saying much at all. What is an “inclusive” decision?
It got worse:
“And if that means whatever it means to get to the truth, if it means more time, I believe the governor according to Greg Jarrett has the ability to make that decision. The Alabama people deserve that. Greg Jarrett said the governor can delay the race if need be. Now, the people of Alabama deserve to have a fair choice, especially in light of the new allegations tonight.”
Look, I’m not trying to pick on Hannity. This is a tough situation considering he’s backed Moore. But he failed to respond to the substance of Moore’s letter. He made the demand for an open letter, then didn’t discuss it. Instead, he gave a passionate plea for… fairness? Delaying the election? Inclusive decision-making?
Hannity drew a huge audience who wanted to hear him respond to Moore’s letter. Instead, he applied doublespeak to say as little as possible. It was as if this was his exit plan to distance himself from Moore in case more heat comes down, which will likely happen whether the allegations are true or not.
Ben Shapiro on Roy Moore: “Of course he needs to go”
Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro hit Fox News’ “Outnumbered” this morning and spoke out against Alabama’s controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore. He said the allegations seem credible, but more importantly he believes Moore hasn’t done enough to refute the claims.
“Of course he needs to go. He has not provided any explanation as to why the allegations are false.”

‘Of Course He Needs to Go’: Ben Shapiro Slams Roy Moore Over ‘Highly Credible’ Sex Allegations | Fox News Insider
Ben Shapiro said anyone still considering supporting Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore must ask themselves whether they believe someone with child molestation allegations against him should be sitting in the U.S. Senate.
Two women have accused the GOP nominee for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat of sexually assaulting them when they were underage and he was a district attorney in his thirties back in the 1970s. Moore has denied the allegations, but the stories kept coming last week, including one that he had been banned from a mall for trying to pick up teenage girls.
Gun confiscation bingo
Hey boys and girls, it’s time to play the hottest new game for fun and fabulous prizes.* The lie from the Left has always been “We’re not talking about taking guns away from people”, while they talk about taking guns away from people. So the trick now its to find one of them who HASN’T demanded gun confiscation by the process of elimination.
The rules are simple – List out the major media outlets of the socialist–Left around the nation in these categories:
- National political figures of the socialist-left.
- Major print outlets of the socialist-left.
- Major media outlets of the socialist-left.
- National media figures of the socialist left.
Then each player must search and find an instance of a gun confiscation demand by these media outlets or person of note. The two at the top of this piece from ABC news and the Boston Globe are freebies, and the odds are 5 minutes after this is published there will be many more.
Points will be awarded for the type of demand as well as completing a card in a particular category, so there are two ways to win – by points and by category. The one who completes all categories will win the grand prize!*
How Points are Awarded:
- Five points for each instance of an outright demand for gun confiscation.
- Four points for each instance of the demand for an offer gun owners can’t refuse – ‘Australian’ style gun confiscation.
- Three points for each instance of a demand for the outright banning of guns.
- Two points for each instance of a demand for the repeal of the 2nd amendment.
Note: Only one point will be awarded for each instance of a demand for the banning or confiscation of ‘Assault Weapons’ since this happens so often it’s not even sporting to dig them up and there is no real definition of that term.
Bonus points will be awarded for cases of a Leftist media outlet detailing it’s plans to confiscate guns via Intergalactic Background Checks and registration. [Yes, they are out there – extra points for digging them up!]
In some cases we must restrict the total number of points available for certain national print outlets of the socialist-left [e.g. The New York times] given that those outlets come up with new ways of demanding gun confiscation almost on a weekly basis. Please note that with the progression of time, it will be that much easier to win the game – particularly after another “Serious Crisis” brought on be the Left’s insistence on indoctrination in the precepts of cultural Marxism.
So everyone grab your gun.. confiscation bingo cards and start playing, it’s fun for the whole family!
[*no prizes will be awarded – sorry].
