    A Brief History of NPR's Intolerance and Imbalance

    Published October 21, 2010

    From calling Tea Party members “Tea Baggers,” to saying that "the evaporation of 4 million" Christians would leave the world a better place, to suggesting that God could give former Sen. Jesse Helms or his family AIDS from a blood transfusion, NPR's personalities have said some pretty un-PC things in the past. A look at the record reveals no shortage of intolerant statements and unbalanced segments on the publicly sponsored network's airwaves.

    Here's an incomplete list of questionable and controversial content that has aired on NPR or has been uttered by its employees:

    This isn't new with NPR. It is a one way street, there way.

    But all other must be held to a different standard than they are. Even though Williams was on the air with them, he was still an outside, so he had to watch his step. You can say more about a conservative there with less facts than you can say about a liberal or that is how it looks. That is why I don't listen to NPR except for Click and Clack, that show is comical and you learn something that all can use from time to time.

    I love "Car Talk." Too bad those guys can't go main stream and leave "Liberal R Us" in their exhaust.
