National Pubic Radio (NPR or National Public Radio nickname)

NPR (formerly National Public Radio) is funded, in part, with taxpayer dollars. Conservative groups have often cited that NPR has a pro-liberal bias. Some critics have nicknamed NPR “National Pubic Radio” since at least 2002.

Other NPR nicknames include “National Propaganda Radio” (cited in print since at least 1989), “National Pinko Radio” (cited in print since at least 1990), “National Palestinian Radio” (cited in print since at least 1993) and “Nationalized Public Radio” (cited in print since at least 1995).

NPR was created in 1970, following congressional passage of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967. This act was signed into law by President Lyndon B.

A CPB organizing committee under John Witherspoon first created a Board of Directors chaired by Bernard Mayes. This Board then hired Donald Quayle to be the first President of NPR with studios in Washington D.C., 30 employees and 90 public radio stations as charter members.

We drove in silence — the NPR show I’d been listening to had come on with the ignition, and I’d switched it off in case it wasn’t to her liking (Charlie referred to the station as National “Pubic” Radio) — and as we were approaching the corner of Montrose Lane and Whitting Avenue,...

Just the kind of story you’d expect the lieberals to air on National Pubic Radio.
