How's that diversity coming along? How's that "reaching across the aisle", "let's all come work together" going?
Would that 7 minutes get NPR off the hook under the Fairness Doctrine? With Democrats running the country, it probably would.
Update, 3/17/08: Here's a story calling it National Progressive Radio. A snip:
National Public Radio is funded in part by federal tax dollars. The last time I checked, both liberals AND conservatives are required to pay federal taxes. So what’s wrong with having four seven-minute segments out of the year where conservative ideas are brought forth? You know, throw them a Milk Bone once in a while to pretend you care about them while you spend their money on things like Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion.”
The problem with many liberals is that while they say they espouse tolerance, love for your fellow man, and discussing problems instead of resorting to fisticuffs, when they’re actually expected to “walk the walk,” things get ugly.
I've been saying that last part forever. In fact, it's why I have a label called "hypocrisy" on this blog.
