NPR's Valuable Life Lesson: How To Speak "Tea Bag"

Taking "educational programming" to a whole new level.

Boy, I sure am glad that we have non-partisan, public-owned media to provide us such valuable educational fare as this. I mean, I can't imagine for one Red second that something this truth-telling would have ever made it in the Corporate-Dominated Evil Rethuglican Media Complex.

All kidding aside, just like Ace, I'm not exactly angry about this, as much as I am amused. I mean, this flagrant one-sidedness on the part of the hard-left National "Public" Radio isn't exactly news or anything. If they're seriously contemplating entering the world of political parody, this is exactly the kind of tiresome, hackneyed piece I would have expected from them. But imagine the options:

"NPR TEACHES KIDS HOW TO SPEAK DIRTY HIPPIE" would definitely be groundbreaking and fresh.

"HOW TO SPEAK LIKE A SCAWWWY STEREOTYPED CONSERVATIVE" ain't.

"99 WAYS CONGRESS WILL TAX YOUR KIDS TO DEATH" would most certainly be a shock when played in 6th grade classrooms across the land.

"EVIL REPUBLICANS WANT YOU TO DIE," not so much.

So seeing that NPR is not being educational, nor fresh, nor insightful, nor anywhere even approaching impartial, why exactly do We The Public need to keep paying their bills?

Ragin': Weasel Zippers, Gateway Pundit, iOTW, Stop the ACLU, Toast.

Chillin': The American Pundit, Ace, Dan Riehl, NewsBusters.

Magillin': The Man, Himself!

Eh.  I'm a little ticked off that government money is being given to one party's media machine. It doesn't bother me that they're showing their liberal colors though.

I think the NPR and Public TV should not be on the government dole at all.  NPR serves no purpose.  Why does the government need its own mouthpiece?  It already has the big 3 media outlets!!
