Subject: RE: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Maybe you haven't noticed but the think tank experts so often interviewed on NPR are now mostly from conservative cesspools of anti-knowledge. There used to be a great conservative outcry to kill NPR but you don't hear that any more. Do you think that's because NPR no longer exposes them for the empty suits they are?
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the Bush administration or his puppeteers now control NPR funding and its editorial policy. I'm guessing that Edwards couldn't stomach the mindless repetitions of official government misinformation and made it clear that he wouldn't be controlled.
