NPR in Turmoil After It Is Accused of Liberal Bias - The New York Times

NPR is facing both internal tumult and a fusillade of attacks by prominent conservatives this week after a senior editor publicly claimed the broadcaster had allowed liberal bias to affect its coverage, risking its trust with audiences.

Uri Berliner, a senior business editor who has worked at NPR for 25 years, wrote in an essay published Tuesday by The Free Press, a popular Substack publication, that “people at every level of NPR have comfortably coalesced around the progressive worldview.”


NPR biased?! You might as well say that the BBC is biased. Ludicrous. As a semi-loyal NPR listener for many, many years I can say it has always been biased, even very biased, until 2016 when it became *extremely* biased. Sort of like law schools, one could say. The arc of history is long, but it bends towards chaos. No, I don't mean that. It's not so bad.
