NPR News admits to role as Trump enabler: Defiantly refuses to make an intervention

In a conversation with reporter Mary Louise Kelly and NPR’s senior vice president for news, Michael Oreskes, NPR News makes clear that its policy is not to use the word “lies” when referring to blatant lying by Popular-Vote-Loser Trump and his aides. There has been much commentary on how the mediocracy contributed to the Trump election coup and this admission confirms that NPR is using a conscious strategy of doublespeak.

I’m sorry I can’t be there tonight. But sorrier still anyone has to be there. Our dear friend Ted is gone, but books and memories remain.
