Being "Partisan" has nothing to do with what part of the populace you belong. It's simply expressed in your stated views.
I've listened to NPR all my life and it's indeed an arm of the leftwing democrat party.
In fact, they're so leftwing they FIRED Juan Williams.
'nuff said.
So would any sane station.

What exactly leads you to believe they are liberal, except that your cage menders told you that?

Hello professor brainiac.

The CORPORATION FOR PUBLIC BROADCASTING "created" Sesame Street. Do you really think it would survive in a world of 400 TV channels.

I guess simple minded slogans keep you sane.

i thought they just aired it.

Sesame street was created in 1966. the CPB was created in 1967.

the CPB and PBS pay to air the show created by a private entity. much as they pay to air shows by many private entities.

Yes, Communist Democrats realized in 1967 it could use early education of children to turn a generation of American males into pansies incapable of decoding human history and susceptible to more and more indoctrination... Corporation for Public Broadcasting: Government indoctrination of infants now validated by the Department of Education's indoctrination of primary students with Channel 1.

Actually not.

"Sesame Street was conceived in 1966 during discussions between television producer Joan Ganz Cooney and Carnegie Foundation vice president Lloyd Morrisett. Their goal was to create a children's television show that would "master the addictive qualities of television and do something good with them",[1] such as helping young children prepare for school. After two years of research the newly formed Children's Television Workshop (CTW) received a combined grant of $8 million ($51 million in 2012 dollars[2]) from the Carnegie Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the U.S. Federal Government to create and produce a new children's television show.[3] The program premiered on public broadcasting television stations on November 10, 1969.[4] It was the first preschool educational television program to base its contents and production values on laboratory and formative research.[5] Initial responses to the show included adulatory reviews, some controversy, and high ratings. By its 40th anniversary in 2009, Sesame Street was broadcast in over 120 countries, and 20 international versions had been produced.[6]

My point was that Sesame Street, in a commercial environment would not survive. Without funding, it would not have lasted over 40 years.

Juan Williams Too Diverse for Liberal NPR

Jonathan S. Tobin |
07.21.2011


When National Public Radio fired commentator Juan Williams last year, they may have hoped it would be a one-day story. But what followed was a major controversy that wound up costing a number of executives at the network their jobs. But the ordeal isn’t over for NPR. Williams has written a new book about his firing from the network that is coming out next week. The advance interviews that Williams and his wife are giving to the media make it clear he believes he was just too black and too independent to survive in what is a cloister for white, college-educated liberals.

In an interview with Politico, Williams details the way NPR tried to censor his comments and sought to have him disassociate himself from Fox News, where he also served as a commentator. Even worse, despite NPR’s claim of Olympian objectivity, Williams says its left-wing bias is reinforced by a desire to please large contributors such as George Soros:



- OUCH!-

[Williams] also believes that NPR’s coverage is skewed by its major donors — the most famous of whom, George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, gave a $1.8 million donation the same week he was fired, further stoking accusations of NPR’s liberal bias.



- OUCH!-




George Soros is a Felon, Nazi Collaborator, and Obama supporter of course.

“The idea was that we have to satisfy these deep-pocketed liberals in order to keep the money flowing, and we want that money,” he said.“And it began to influence the journalism.”

While Williams says that in contrast to the behavior of NPR executives, the people at Fox were quite happy to let him say whatever he wanted to say, he doesn’t let the network completely off the hook, stating its news operation has a conservative slant. But given the refusal of the rest of the mainstream media– and especially NPR–to admit their liberal bias, Fox needn’t apologize.

Just as damning are the comments of Williams’ wife Delise, who told Newsmax:

“So-called liberals” at NPR treated her — a light-skinned African-American — as if she didn’t exist.… Delise says that she and Juan were the only blacks at NPR parties, a point confirmed by Juan. In general, both say, African-Americans were found only in low-level jobs such as security guards.


NPR = RACIST Bastards!

To anyone who has listened to NPR’s news programs, reports about the arrogant and insular nature of their staff and the narrow spectrum of views that are tolerated there are hardly surprising.



Juan Williams ends his book with a call for an end to the federal subsidies for this liberal enclave.

It’s only a matter of time before the government gravy train stops for NPR. When it does, perhaps we’ll look back at Juan Williams’ firing as the turning point in that debate.

The HUGE amounts of money left to PBS by heirs of the Mc'Donald's empire and other things such as marketing of Sesame Street characters in every store in America guarantees their continued existence. Since those inheritances and enterprises are based on a corporation existing because of initial structure and funding from the government, all of those profits and inheritances should be taken by the government and a continued public relationship should be reoriented to absolutely no government and extreme Leftists indoctrination. The huge inheritances, etc. can be used more successfully to reduce the national debt, instead of brainwashing children to be wimps and pansies.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting was a creation of the American people through their representatives, although those representatives had different intent in its creation, than the general public realized. Once it became super profitable from various sources, Democrats changed its structure somewhat to decrease its status as having been created by the American public to serve the American public. This effectively freed the Corporation to use some of its profits and inheritances to benefit the same Communist Democrats freeing up its status.

The only solution to remove a Democrat created slush fund and indoctrination tool is to reestablish the CPB's status to what it originally was. Confiscate all its funds from any source and replace its current status to one of public trust and therefore disallowed to be a slush fund for Democrats.
