NPR Suspends Editor Uri Berliner for Stating the Obvious

Long-time NPR editor Uri Berliner’s Free Press article on how NPR has veered hard left has caused more of a stir than we expected. This part in particular has been quoted everywhere: “In D.C., where NPR is headquartered and many of us live, I found 87 registered Democrats working in editorial positions and zero Republicans. None.”

You would think that this bombshell revelation would cause a major shake-up at NPR – starting with the CEO being fired immediately. (After all, these are the people who preach “diversity” and “tolerance” every day.)

Imagine for a moment that the story wasn’t that NPR has no Republicans, but that it has no blacks, gays, Hispanics, or female executives. The outrage would be thunderous. Someone’s scalp would be on the wall for this blatant discrimination.  There would be calls in Congress to clean house.

Instead, NPR’s response has not been an apology to the taxpayers of America, who are forced to pay their bills, but instead, they have suspended the whistle-blower – without pay. Even THIS part of the scandal has been largely ignored by the Biden administration and the mainstream media.

Several of your HOTLINE editors have known Uri Berliner for years. He has always impressed us as a straight shooter, and a top-notch journalist – of the old-school variety. But he’s in no way a conservative. He’s middle of the road. And apparently, that’s way too far to the right for NPR.

This should be the last straw for NPR.  It is finally time to totally cut off taxpayer dollars to a leftwing mouthpiece – that spouts propaganda, not news. We’ve been calling for the defunding of NPR and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for years and years. National Public Radio should become National PRIVATE Radio.
