Today’s highly interesting read (05/11/22): How NPR Helps Elect GOP Candidates

Before I started working at WTMJ Radio I was employed at WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio, 89.7 FM, Milwaukee’s NPR affiliate from May 1978-August 1989. WUWM did me a few favor and didn’t renew my contract. I went from a station with miniscule ratings to the largest station in Wisconsin. I know personally how far left NPR and its member stations are.

So I just had to check out today’s read from Lynn Uzzell, Visiting Assistant Professor of Politics at Washington and Lee University. She specializes in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the political thought of James Madison. Here’s  a brief excerpt:

That claim might seem surprising. Anyone who listens to NPR knows that the nonprofit broadcast organization, which has tilted left since its inception, has recently turned into something like the publicity wing of the Democratic National Committee. But NPR’s evident design to discredit Republicans is no less subject to the law of unintended consequences than any other aspect of political life.
