The misleading headline to this article tars an entire, national organization with a brush that applies only to one local station. This shows that the author has an agenda against public media, rather than a specific concern about one appearance of impropriety. Furthermore, the author has presented no evidence or argument that the programming in question is not in the public interest. Rather, he makes the ridiculous proposal that the organization somehow has an obligation to offer an on-air forum to its own detractors, presumably so that folks like him can get more attention without regard to the lack of merit in their arguments.
