This is in the conspiracies section b/c they openly promote leftist agenda and mock the conservatives all on the public's dollar.

I still listen to NPR to break up the monotony of other radio stations like Fox News radio programs (many of which are not political in nature in my area) but I can only take so much before my blood starts to congeal from the boiling point it reaches when I hear their 100% liberal bias for hours on end. It is good to to hear both sides of the argument but NPR does not do that and when they “try” they do a horrible job of representing the true feelings of how the conservatives feel. I usually have to turn the station because they support such extreme fringe elements like a lesbian couple, raising 2 young boys (5 & 8) who they dress in pink, tell them they can be princesses and call them girl names – I wanted to track them down and remove the kids from the home (with CPS help obviously) – or some other gay/trans couple who adopted telling their kid that they might be “other” just like their parents. Such sick people to do this to children.

My parents used to tell me that NPR or PBS were non-biased and they truly believed that. They said that they had people from both sides on the show (interviewee's, not interviewers) and gave basically equal talking time. The thing is, that you can't just listen to what is asked and talked about, you have to listen to what is not asked or brought up and this can only be done by someone who knows the topic and understands both sides of the argument. NPR does a great job in hiding this and playing games of covering both sides, and it looks like that from the liberal point of view, because they don't know how the other side really feels or thinks. A conservative will be listening and saying to themselves “but ask them about XXXX”, or “Why aren't you bringing up XXXX?” etc. NPR does an excellent job of leaving out the strong points, which the liberals are TOTALLY unable to refute or debate, so these topics are just never brought up. Now to the uninformed liberals, the interview seemed fair and unbiased while for the conservative listening they want to strangle the host b/c they know the dirty tricks that are being pulled all the while being funded by THEIR tax dollars!

So I say that the government has absolutely NO role in funding ANY kind of public media, especially news media or politically related material. I think all conservatives should run on a campaign of ending ALL funding to NPR and PBS. They can survive on donations and they can even change their donation model to have donors donate to specific shows that they support (like Sesame Street or whatever).

In addition, there needs to be openly conservative hosts in equal numbers on the network if they are taking tax money, and even independent hosts (that may be even more interesting than having conservatives!).

IDK how this can be done, but I think Trump would fully support this as I know he was hammered by NPR and PBS during his campaign. They weren't as blatant in how they said things, but they were snarky and dismissive throughout and many hosts openly mocked him.

So has anyone else seen this and feel this way?

Why not make it nonpartisan?

After all, they are funded with taxpayer dollars. Not liberal dollars. Not conservative dollars. Ever think about that?

~shocked look~

I dont spend too much time driving around, but when I do I'm often tuned into NPR and its always leftists. And they have some serious radicals on their spouting off about half the time.

There's Fox vs. MSNBC+CNBC+CBS+CNN+ABC.

I imagine the 'lesser' channels stack up about the same, although I've been without TV for over a decade so cant speak much to them.

Isnt BBC a typical channel on US cable now too? Another example of Establishment (of the Leftist variety) Propaganda.

Meanwhile, no true libertarian channel. That's important for social control / Two party electioneering, as all those people that generally dont get too into politics (many of which because they know its all rigged and mostly pointless) I'd wager they'd score mostly as libertarians (even though they might not know it themselves).

Well it is supposed to be nonpartisain and they claim that it is. They have fought the claims that it is bias for years but nothing happens and nothing changes. If they would cover both sides of America evenly with presenters and hosts from both sides (not fake conservatives playing the role to get around the rules) then that would be good.

So for every report or article on "the family with 2 mommies" or "the family with 2 trans parents" , there needs to be a balance where the story will be as repulsive to the left as those two stories are to the conservatives. This "news" organization goes WELL beyond what MSNBC does in promoting the fringe elements of the extreme left and they try to make it sound normal and healthy. If it were to balance, then they would need to have white seperatists (hosted by someone who understands their view point, maybe support, but at least doesn't openly dispise them) or something "extreme" like that, which is just as extreme as the two examples I gave about the lesbian couples and trans couples. They can't keep doing the reports on the extreme fringes of the left and then just cover the moderate/all encompassing positions of the right, like 2nd ammendment, that is not the same.

They need to tame their extreme viewpoints or give equal coverage about the people who "HATE" (meaning extremely opposed not as in seeking to kill) those extreme positions.

NO ONE can honestly say that PBS/NPR does not have the most extreme liberal bias in the media and I've listened to all the media.

No, that is called promoting reality, instead of some far-right delusional fantasy intent on upending reality and truth.

You're welcome.

many people watch local news which is primarily skewed conservatives, with scripts handed down from on high. don't forget to include that in your little story problem.

Oh, and when I didn't have cable (first 24 years of my life) I got 13 stations that had news programs (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX), 15 including 2 PBS stations) every day, and was lucky enough to have 2 major markets and 4 smaller ones within my reception area. Now not all people would have that, but I can bet they would have a few (especially with digital you can get signals 150 miles away with a $50 antenna!)

I will say this... I dislike the indoctrination in all media presently, but in regards quality, non sexualized, educational kids programming? PBS has some real quality programming. WildKratts, Curious George and a couple others. As a father who cannot stand what Disney and other supposed child programming is offering...essentially dumbed down child porn...please leave us PBS television for the cartoons and safe, educational options for our kids.

I'm the same way. I used to look forward to some of the shows on NPR but would leave the station afterwards and it was like I had stumbled into a different reality. They give NO consideration or support for any opposing opinion or viewpoint and make a point of talking down about people who might have opposing opinions to their guests (like the mom's - they said something like - "some people may oppose what you do" and these ILLEGALS - didn't mention that before as that was the least of the issue - were like "have them come tell that to my face and they'll wish they had never met me"). I've heard open threats of violence on the shows directed at conservatives more times than I can remember, now many were veiled but they were obvious enough for any intelligent person to know what they meant, and it would be met with a supporting chuckle/smirk/laugh by the host. I NEVER hear that on conservative radio except when it comes to the illegal confiscation of guns, which I can understand the resistance and comments surrounding that.

But what about NOVA, Sesame Street, and PBS science where they make videos online like PBS Spacetime and other shows?

Defund? No. Depoliticize? Absolutely.

Last I checked America hadn't yet become a socialist dictatorship, despite how hard some of you may have wanted it. So your perception of reality may not resemble actual reality.

So taxpayer funded media should not be politically slanted. And if it can't be non-partisan it should at least present balanced viewpoints.

Or even better as IIB pointed out a libertarian or maybe even a Constitutionalist point of view.

Agreed, but I say the creators of these programs move to some new channel that is truly "kid safe" and family oriented. It can be accessed 100% online and stations (Fox, NBC, CBS, etc) can buy rights to air it on their stations if they wish. This is how a real free market would work.

From the reactions of these poor downtrodden 'truth & fact' people, getting rid of these pure propaganda channels certainly seems to be causing a lot of distress. I wonder why? Without the constant brainwashing by presenting only one side of the story, would the liberal numbers start to decline? Maybe critical thought is the antithesis to the freedom destroying liberal ideals? Is their base of beliefs so weak that they are afraid of simply having both sides of the story presented?

It seems like NPR has always been the flagship for some reason. Maybe because this indoctrination is being used against us with our own tax dollars?

I am sure that if another tax dollar funded station, that had a massive slant towards freedom, would be just as supported as NPR from these wonderful people.
