How convenient. Just in time for Fall Pledge Week, NPR is restricting its employees from attending political rallies. Mustn’t get caught publicly supporting any lame-ass progressives, dontcha know. Slanting coverage is still OK though.
Update (21 October). The NPR-ness of it all continues with the firing of Juan Williams. If this perennial thumbsucker is too outspoken for NPR, I don’t want to listen!
Update (22 October). “We’re profoundly sorry that this happened during fundraising week.” …but Juan was gettin’ to be just a little too uppity for NPR.
