Just "replied" to the Jay Kernis email. After all the babble about NPR's goals for the future and their dedication to dynamic news reporting he said NOTHING that would explain just how removing Bob Edwards will help NPR achieve its goals!
I explained to him that it wasn't Mr. Edwards removal or his moving on that was upsetting it was that we heard about it from CNN or from USA Today or other sources than NPR and that NPR dodged and is still dodgeing the sticky questions and doesn't seem to want to address the true reasons for their actions.
So I suggested that maybe HE, Kernis, had a personal problem with Bob Edwards or that maybe Walmart didn't like him. I asked him if Edwards pissed someone off.
I doubt that he will respond.
I've never seen Jay Kernis but I suspect he has the appearence of a weasle.
