If you are paying (taxes) to support a public facility of any kind would you mind if they took a particular political view? And would you be bothered if that political view undermined your closely held view? How about if it encouraged people break the law? Now please answer this honestly, without regard to whether this public facility falls on your side of politics or not, ok? Take a purely neutral stance for fairness.
Today I was listening to the news on NPR, national public radio. In theory they are supposed to prioritize news based on its national importance, right? Yeah, in theory this is what is supposed to happen, but they’re blatantly slipping in commentary (leftwing) into much of their programming and in their national news reporting. That’s wrong, if they are receiving tax dollars.
Take for instance they stunt they pulled today. I’m not sure of the reporter, but I think it was Lu Lu Garcia-Navarro, anyway, the female reporter was saying ICE arrests are down and reminded people (illegals and people who shelter them) that if ICE shows up on their door, they do not have to let them in without a warrant. She said if people felt intimidated by ICE agents, they should contact their local ACLU. Then the reporter made the unsupportable statement that migrants are rarely lawbreakers…hey, if they came here illegally, they broke the law, duh. She felt it was necessary to point out to illegals that many Churches serve as an overnight place (sanctuary) stay to avoid ICE deportation.
Here is your tax dollars at work on NPR giving advice thru a news story on what to do to avoid being deported and to thwart ICE. This is like aiding and abetting in a crime and it ticked me off!
Whether or not I support hiding illegals or not does not matter! What matters is this is a flagrant violation of the agreement between national public radio and the people who pay for them to operate (taxpayers).
This is not a freedom of speech issue either, this was a subversive editorial cloaked as a news story to undermine immigration law. How could this not violate the contractual agreement of non-partisanship in order to receive taxpayer funding?
The FCC should be on this big time, because this is far from the first time the liberal dominated NPR has pulled this junk. If the FCC are supposed to be our watchdogs, but they are doing a lousy job… in my opinion. What do you think?
