NPR Does Its Own Report On How It Is “Hemorrhaging Hosts From Marginalized Backgrounds”

The job went to media reporter David Folkenflik, by now quite experienced in, and respected for, stories about his employer — and he finds that the situation there is more complex than the quote in the headline (from ATC host Ari Shapiro) might indicate. – NPR

National political narratives upended by Tuesday’s election results

If the presidential-election picture is still smeared with mud, there’s a gin-clear stream flowing over it: The standard American political narrative as put forth by supposed experts has been upended. It’s broken, in fact. As the show-biz mantra puts it, “Nobody knows anything.” The pundits and pollsters were so wildly wrong about the way the 2020 electorate would vote in the race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and in Senate and House contests around the nation, that these past masters of t...

NPR Pulls Out The Big Guns: Asks For Sanctions Against Lawyer Steven Biss For Lying (techdirt)

Earlier this month, we wrote about an absolutely awful ruling in a bizarre lawsuit brought by Fox news commentator Ed Butowsky, represented by lawyer Steven Biss (a name you might recognize). Butowsky sued NPR and reporter David Folkenflik for accurately reporting on a failed lawsuit by another Fox News commentator, Rod Wheeler, accusing Fox News and Butowsky of defaming him in regards to a story about Seth Rich -- about whom conspiracy theorists seem to regularly fantasize. As we noted, the N...

Sinclair Broadcast Group’s ‘fake news’ campaign attacks real journalism

In these ginned-up, rashly opinionated times in the United States of America, with the press under fire, no citizen we know of is crying out for some new national voice criticizing those who bring us our news. If anything, with so much news coming out of Washington, D.C., and with the internet’s constant feed and big-screen TVs everywhere bringing us the national 24-hour news cycle, what we are lacking is local news, followed by local commentary — a new localism as a blessed respite from the bla...
