NPR still leans left and protects their own

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.

Chuck Todd Hosted Dinner Party For Clinton Campaign Official

http://dailycaller.com/2016/10/17/chuck-todd-hosted-swanky-dinner-party-at-his-home-for-top-clinton-campaign-official/“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.

Chuck Todd Gets Off Easy on Hosting Parties for Democrats

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tim-graham/2017/11/13/chuck-todd-gets-easy-hosting-parties-democratsOn 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?”

NPR Anchor Protests: We Weren’t Openly Biased Like Jorge Ramos!

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tim-graham/2017/11/11/npr-anchor-protests-we-werent-openly-biased-jorge-ramosEven 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.

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat (again) because the Republican was mean (again)

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat again because the Republican was mean again

Mainstream media, or should we say “meanstream media,” has been in the process of lurching to the left for a while. Even Fox News, while backing the President, often rails against conservatives while embracing moderate Republicans who practice Democratic orthodoxy. That’s not everyone at Fox News, but some prominent show hosts really love to align in the center.

The Arizona Republic, which was counted on for a while to lean right during elections, made a shift in 2016 by endorsing Hillary Clinton. Now, they’re going to the left of Clinton by endorsing far-left Democratic Socialist Kyrsten Sinema. Her 9% Liberty Score makes her by far the biggest leftist in the state. Now the Arizona Republic wants her to be their next Senator.

It isn’t just her voting record. Her ideas are extremely dangerous for America and particularly a southern border state like Arizona:

Kyrsten Sinema’s dangerous ideas do not belong in the Senate

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/12/kyrsten-sinemas-dangerous-ideas-not-belong-senate/There’s a very distinct difference between defense of personal freedoms, a conservative staple, and desiring no repercussions for people who intend to kill Americans. As with many far-left activists, they don’t care about the lives of others if they don’t agree wholeheartedly with their worldviews.

This wasn’t the only statement getting Sinema into hot water with voters.

The paper’s endorsement of Clinton in 2016 can be chalked up to the Trump effect that hit many conservatives in their funny bone. It should be noted that I didn’t endorse nor vote for Trump, but I definitely didn’t endorse or vote for Clinton. My write in vote wasn’t even running. Oh, if only Thomas Sowell had stepped away from academia to lead the country for eight years, but I digress.

When the paper goes for two leftists in a row, we can call it a trend. With Sinema in particular, there needed to be a tremendous excuse that allowed the editorial board to abandon any sense of conservatism and embrace the far-left socialist values she has espoused her entire adult life.

Nope. Their excuse is as weak as anyone could possibly imagine:

Arizona newspaper backs Democrat in dead heat Senate race

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/412432-the-arizona-republic-backs-sinema-in-dead-heat-senate-raceRather than pointing to particular policy positions in the endorsement, the editorial board pointed to how the candidates have handled themselves during the race.

“We need to get back to a saner time, when senators didn’t call each other names — or if they did, they could put it all aside after the vote and go get a beer together,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “There is too much ‘us and them’ in D.C., and it hurts how we are governed.”

“The real Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema know that,” the board argued. “But Sinema is the only one willing to say it (repeatedly) from behind her mask.”

The editorial board argued that McSally has gone further than Sinema in attacks on her opponent.

The paper tries to justify their decision by claiming McSally is center-right (which she is) and Sinema is center-left (which she is not). One needs only to look at her 9% Liberty Score to realize she’s the most radical representative in Arizona. It’s not even close.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video: Bombshell, the beginning of the end, walls closing in, the tipping point

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.
