Former NPR CEO Opens Up
About liberal media bias

New York Post, by Ken Stern

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 10/22/2017 7:13:32 AM

Most reporters and editors are liberal — a now dated Pew Research Center poll found that liberals outnumber conservatives in the media by some 5 to 1, and that comports with my own anecdotal experience at National Public Radio. When you are liberal, and everyone else around you is as well, it is easy to fall into groupthink on what stories are important, what sources are legitimate and what the narrative of the day will be. This may seem like an unusual admission from someone who once ran NPR, but it is borne of recent experience. Spurred by a fear that

Rubbing my eyes on this one - is it a spoof? Is it April 1? Amazing. I nominate as a must read.

And when reporting their so-called stories, the LSM manages to use the exact same talking points -- phrases or usage -- delivered by the leftist DRat party.

This week´s cowgirl negro story is a case in point.

No, not a must read.

Another liberal goes slumming for a year and sees conservatives actually existing, but still doesn´t get it.

He still has it backward (FTA): it is not a good situation for the country to have the media in disrepute and under constant attack. (snip) Virtually every significant leader of this nation, from Jefferson on down, has recognized the critical role of an independent press to the orderly functioning of democracy. We should all be worried that more than 65 percent of voters think there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media and that our major media institutions are seen as creating, not combatting, our growing partisan divide.

What he does NOT do is lay blame where it belongs. He blasts Trump for criticizing the media, and laments our poor opinion of his self-exalted colleagues.

The writer is the former CEO of NPR, an earnest blockhead if ever there was one.

If you spent your entire life in the NY/DC bubble , I supposed you would find it difficult to understand America, Kenny.
We are so behind in this game-which YOU helped create and nourish-that it takes nothing less than a patriotic, strong, and confident leader like President Donald Trump to steer this ship before it hits the iceberg.

Put it this way, re #s 5 and 6:

The author condemns Trump´s criticism of the media, terribly inappropriate coming from the head of government, he writes.

But were it not for Trump´s criticisms, what would have inspired the introspection that the author also touts?

I see little change yet from these epiphanies. Stern himself is retired. It´s a necessary start, however, and Trump is the catalyst without question.

Doesn´t the title of his book say it all, about his core beliefs that is, ..."to love the right". I assume he means flipping from hating the right to something else. Is he sincere? Not sure one is able to overcome the deep steepening in Leftist Liberal Progressive Demonrat bubble ideology.

Also agree with other L-dotters, it is the press that has worked hard to distance itself from truth and honest reporting. We have not had an Independent and Free Press for decades.

"Trump gets to rile his base". No doofus, Trump simply fights back and reflects what "his base" already believes.

Stern is simply blame shifting. Spent a year with the riff raff and learned nothing.

Considering the context--coming from the former head of NPR--amazing and, on balance, a welcome and refreshing contribution to the national "dialogue", such as it is. That said, I too cringed at the all too familiar and obligatory knock at President Trump, but I wasn´t surprised, and it is indeed disappointing to see that despite his extensive embedded "research" Mr. Stern somehow failed to catch a glimmer of what President Trump´s victory in the recent election, and the resilience of his support, is all about. I wonder when Mr. Stern will be invited to appear on NPR to flog his new book (don´t hold your breath).

Ok, I agree with all above - it´s a good article but he falls far short of connecting the dots to what the actual problem is. Why it is we hate the press so very much. We need a lot more reporters to have some intellectual curiosity to investigate the divide in this country. This was my favorite part (which he found on Reddit):

At one point during my research, I discovered a video of a would-be robber entering a Houston smoke shop, his purpose conveyed by the pistol that he leveled at the store clerk. But the robber was not the only armed person in the store. The security cameras show Raleigh, the store clerk, walking out from behind the counter, calmly raising his own gun and firing an accurate stream of bullets at the hapless robber. The wounded robber stumbles out, falls over the curb and eventually ends up under arrest.It is not just the defensive gun use that makes the video remarkable — it is Raleigh himself who evidences such a nonchalance that he never bothers to put down the cigarette that he is smoking. At the end, Raleigh, having protected his store, enthuses “Castle Doctrine, baby” — citing a law that allows a person to use force to defend a legally occupied place.

I have always said the problem with the liberal press is they only talk and communicate with other libs.
To graduate from ANY school of journalism you have to be far left wing. A conservative would get failing grades and be run out. This is true even in the state schools in the south like Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
From the age of 18, journalist are only eating with, drinking with, and socializing with other left wing zealots.
The day after Carter lost in the biggest landslide in POUS elections, I was he’d a liberal panel say, “I can’t believe Regan won, I have not talked to a single person that was going to vote for him”.
All the other panelist agreed with him.

Good start, but now that he is gone, it goes nowhere except to assuage his guilty conscience about being a propagandist and liar for his whole life.

Still he says:
"None of this justifies the attacks from President Trump, which are terribly inappropriate coming from the head of government.

I call BS. Trump is exactly right and the media deserves ten times the attacks that it gets for it´s unmitigated evil drumbeat, severely harming this country every day.

Flaming Liberal decides he may not be fully informed that there are other people who do not think exactly like he does. He goes on a roughing expedition, deep into the jungle of conservatism. NASCAR- OMG! Evangelicals? What an explorer! The revelation: "They are people, too! Not hedonistic animals like I have heard all my life!" They even understand English! OMG! The are worried about illegal immigration the same as us! They want to protect and nurture them, the same as us!

Conclusion: These people are not hard core heathen neo-Nazis! They are really liberals who have just not been properly indoctrinated! With the right brain washing, we could make them tolerable to us and then together we could destroy Trump!

Yep- Same old crap!

For decades now, we have complained about bias in the media and the media vehemently DENIED it. They did NOTHING of substance to investigate themselves therefore found no problems and applied no fixes. They are adamantly happy being just as they are.

Congratulations to Stern for his personal journey of discovery. Too bad he couldn´t be bothered to do it while he was in a position of authority to make use of what he learned if he dared to.

Instead, he now STILL blames the Right and Trump for being fed up with the media and taking STRONG steps to attack them.

If you had a person in your neighborhood that you suspected was abusing women and you spoke to those in authority and even to the suspect to mend his ways but nothing happened. After a while (decades?) wouldn´t you take STRONG action to stop this person? Would you care about people who defend him and said he was "sick" and deserved sympathy and not public exposure and jail? Or would you say, we gave him a chance to straighten out and ask his supporters "Where were YOU when we were trying to do this the "nice" way?".

The media has proven itself intractable and wedded itself to the Left. It is beyond biased. It is perpetrating the agenda of the Left. If they cannot stand outside their bias, they have no business in their job and bring NO value to the Country.

If there is a loss to the Country of a free press, it has been brought about by the press itself who massively abused the responsibility they were entrusted with. Besides that, there are plenty of truly free press sources available, just not glued to the Left.

Twenty-eight years ago, the release of “When Harry Met Sally” highlighted one big debate: whether men and women could really be just friends. That question may still be up in the air, but now we are being forced to confront a more fundamental debate: whether men can really become women. America is in the midst of what has been called a “transgender moment.” In the space of a year, transgender issues went from something that most Americans had never heard of to a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights. But can a boy truly be “trapped” in a girl’s body? Can modern

In the basement of the Mexican restaurant Anejo TriBeCa last December, with rain pouring down on the streets of Lower Manhattan, Nicolle Wallace was addressing the staff of her new MSNBC show, “Deadline: White House.” They had gathered for their first holiday party since the show’s debut in May. Ms. Wallace, a former communications director under George W.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown.

It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents.

Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum.

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March.

Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,
