I’m Beginning To Like This New Matt Taibbi

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Ha ha ha! Somebody on the left just noticed that NPR is left-biased as well as race and sex obsessed.

NPR’s Brilliant Self-Own – National Public Radio complains about a media figure who tells people “what their opinions should be” and uses political “buzzwords”

Man, I can’t help myself, I’m actually beginning to like this new Matt Taibbi:

Yesterday’s NPR article, Outrage As A Business Model: How Ben Shapiro Is Using Facebook To Build An Empire,” is among the more unintentionally funny efforts at media criticism in recent times.

The piece is about Ben Shapiro, but one doesn’t have to have ever followed Shapiro, or even once read the Daily Wire, to get the joke. The essence of NPR’s complaint is that a conservative media figure not only “has more followers than The Washington Post” but outperforms mainstream outlets in the digital arena, a fact that, “experts worry,” may be “furthering polarization” in America. NPR refers to polarizing media as if they’re making an anthropological discovery of a new and alien phenomenon.

After first explaining what NPR’s complaint isn’t about (peddling misinformation, Trumpism or opinion disguised as news) he gets to the heart of the matter:

The main complaint, instead, is that:

By only covering specific stories that bolster the conservative agenda (such as… polarizing ones about race and sexuality issues)… readers still come away from The Daily Wire’s content with the impression that Republican politicians can do little wrong and cancel culture is among the nation’s greatest threats.

NPR has not run a piece critical of Democrats since Christ was a boy. Moreover, much like the New York Times editorial page (but somehow worse), the public news leader’s monomaniacal focus on “race and sexuality issues” has become an industry in-joke. For at least a year especially, listening to NPR has been like being pinned in wrestling beyond the three-count. Everything is about race or gender, and you can’t make it stop.

I repeat, ha ha ha!  I suppose next NPR will be telling us that we have to rename gypsy moths

due to racial slurs or something. Oh wait…I’m too late

Oh well, as some wag noted, Car Talk was good…20 years ago.

And now, in recognition of Chicken Day, I offer up this fluffy ball of feathers, please feel free to enjoy it before its image and breed are banned due to whiteness and privilege by association.

Our prayers continue today for Succotash, who checked in with us yesterday and is now home with palliative care, and pbird, who’s still in hospital.
