Grumpy's Hobbie: Complaining About NPR
NPR's "not-an-Ombudsman but apologist" has a new post, defending what some listeners considered NPR's tad one sided coverage of story on Prop 8 in California. In addition to a long explanation that "maybe, kinda, well, ah, . . ." that the story might appear to some as one sided, there was some unintended revelatory information on how NPR does its reporting.
Apparently, the FOX NEWS idea of "balance" has been adopted by NPR, and they said Ken Tomlinson didn't leave an impression. Yours truly has an opinion on that and left two comments: Quel Surprise! Its some of my best snark interspersed with your minimum daily adult requirement of typos.
