One Response to Liberal Bias at NPR?

  1. Matt says:

    I agree with Steve. I listen to NPR daily, I actually force myself to try to find a bias, liberal or conservative. What I find is a mixture of viewpoints and I am left to make my own opinion. That’s the purpose of good journalism. I ask conservative friends to prove NPR’s liberal bias to me, I never actually get any real proof, but just links to various op-ed articles and pieced together videos like the one Steve alludes to in the WSJ article. Please help me see NPR as liberally biased. I beg you.
