So Blackcatter, is what you are saying (since you suggest that people posting to this thread get their news from more sources than just ME or NPR) is that ME isn't your main source of news, but maybe is your morning comfort food sort of news?

You all do know that corporate news organizations like NPR aren't exactly known for finesse, politeness, and grace when it comes to firing their news anchor asses, don't you? If so, then why the surprise? Isn't this sort of like the Jane Pauley backlash?
People want their morning news personalities to be fuzzy and familiar people who make them feel good while they fluff up their pillows, drink their coffee, and herd the children out the door before work?
