NPR late to Tara’s story

leave a comment »

Once in a while, you read something very interesting.   This is from Kelly McBride, NPR Public Editor, and her post on why it took the network so long to get around to the Biden story:

NPR’s silence on the story feeds at least three critical narratives, or perhaps suspicions: 

1) NPR preferred Biden over Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination (the story broke before Sanders had dropped out, but barely); 

2) NPR is reluctant to tell stories that may help President Donald J. Trump’s re-election effort; 

3) NPR is hypocritical, covering claims of sexual assault leveled against Republicans, but burying similar accusations against Democrats.

This story, no matter how it came out, wouldn’t likely change the minds of those who subscribe to those theories. 

But it’s particularly futile, when the NPR story came in so late in the process.   

Of course, she is right about the delay in reporting the story.   Also, we do have a pandemic causing major health and economic problems.

McBride did not touch on the key issue.  In other words, would NPR have been this late if a woman had been accusing President Trump of sexual misconduct?  Or just name any other Republican.

NPR’s problem here, and much of the media, is that they had no trouble jumping on the anti-Kavanaugh horse and reporting every accusation as fact.

A word about May 8

leave a comment »

We remember May 8:

VE Day 1945 and the end of the war in Europe:  Remembering V E Day 1945 with Barry Jacobsen.  

May 8, 1884:  Let’s talk about Pres Truman… to listen.    In 2009, we spoke with Susan Medler and Bill Katz.  Susan is the Director of Communications at the Harry S. Truman Library Institute and Harry S. Truman Library and Museum.  Bill is an author and blogger of Urgent AGenda, one of the most popular political blogs.

Humor man:    We remember Don Rickles who was born in New York City on this day in 1926.    He died in 2017.

Orioles baseball:    We remember Miguel Angel Santana Cuellar today.  Mike was born May 8, 1937 in Las Villas.    During his brilliant career, he won 185 games to go with a 3.14 ERA. He also completed 172 starts!  He died in 2010.

Rangers baseball:    On this day in 2012, Josh Hamilton made history and we got to watch it on TV:    The 16th player to hit 4 HR’s in a game.   He did it in Baltimore!

AT post:  “Who needs AMLO? We’ve got ‘Los Chapitos’“………….

AT post:  “Lena is what we got for Beto“………

Wednesday’s podcast:    “No jail for “the salon lady” plus Biden vs Trump & money problems for states“…….
