National People's Radio

I'd like to post something about the interesting batch of SCOTUS crimlaw cases, but need some more time to read and digest them. In the meantime, while driving home yesterday, listening to the enemy, NPR, I heard a very lengthy segment on filthy-rich Warren Buffet and his decision to give a ton of money ($31 billion) to another filthy rich guy, Bill Gates, specifically to Bill and Melinda Gates' charitable foundation. Then this morning, another lengthy segment on the same topic! You might think, listening to NPR, that these darlings of the left (apparently the only rich people NPR likes are leftist rich people) are the only ones around doing any charitable work.

NPR to my knowledge and belief has never run a story on the charitable activities of average folks coming together, such as my own Knights of Columbus or the myriad of local, state, national, and international charitable activities of religious organizations of many denominations.

Two reasons come to mind for this inordinate, orgasmic coverage: 1) the Gates foundation writes checks to NPR which must be salivating at the prospect of more coming their way; and more importantly, 2) Buffet is a rabid pro-abortionist, as made clear in this morning's NPR segment, which focused at length on his militant love of abortion, including funding training for doctors in how to perform abortion (this is needed because few med students really aspire to a career as an abortionist so med schools do not go out of their way to train abortionists) and funding advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the ridiculously named Catholics for a Free Choice.

UPDATE: It also seems NPR is either incompetent or lying, since they state in their piece that the Gates foundation does not support abortion rights activities. In fact, "the foundation also has given nearly $21 million to International Planned Parenthood over the last seven years, where funds have been used to promote abortions in third-world nations and to set up pro-abortion family planning centers in South America, Africa and Eastern Europe."

So why do tax dollars fund such an open advocacy operation as NPR?

i om,

Thanka for the information on NPR and Mr. Buffet. Unfortunately, NPR still is the country's best overall news source. My day would be hell without it.
