Interesting

Morning Edition ventures conversations with conservatives.
According to NPR ombudsman Alicia Shepard, more than 60 angry e-mails and phone calls arrived at the network, calling the programming "shameful" and a "lovefest with radical, right-wing nuts." There were only a few, she said, that praised the series as "refreshing" and "articulate," among other things.
I guess they were jolted out of their comfort zone. I wonder if it was Grover Norquist's comments? Who could get upset by a guy named after a muppet? (Via Pajamas Media via Instapundit.)

Of course, since taxpayer funds should only be spent on an ongoing lovefest with radical, left-wing nuts. NPR is little more than a playpen for latte liberals, much like the New York Times. A pox on them both, I say.

Ah, nothing like the intolerance of the self-proclaimed tolerant. I see London, I see France....

Heh.
