NPR: Still Sounds Newsy

Yesterday, I listened to a few minutes of "All Things Considered" on NPR. As usual, within minutes there was a story that was emphasizing the disastrous and imminent effects of an unquestioned global warming. This time it was blamed for exacerbating worldwide water distribution injustice. Say that five times fast!

On the upside, within those few minutes there was no story about a 'regular guy' illegal immigrant who is being particularly hurt by the economy even though he loves America. That's their other major story and it can be very touching if you forget that it's agenda journalism.

  1. I think that might be an insult to real journalism.
