Sick of NPR!

God, can someone tell the guys and gals at NPR to at least pretend to be unbiased? I used to love the radio show, and still listen to them because they are the only half-educated radio show on the air, but gosh, they may as well be funded by the Democrats. Most guests are liberals, sorry "progressives" or some other euphemism, and about the only time you will find a Republican is when he critisizes Bush. I lost it right now when they had a discussion on the wiretap scandal. Well, a discussion makes a lot more sense when all the people of the panel aren't diehard liberals who think anyone who supports Bush is nuts!

Look, I haven't yet commented on the wiretap scandal because I'm waiting for more details to unravel. I'm inclined to give rather large leeway to the administration fighting terror, although recent reports suggesting vegan and other political movements may have been spied on, which is concerning. But several lawyers in the White House, Justice Department and other departments seemed to think there was a valid arguement for the president's actions, so how come the media can't?

Whoa!! Hold it there Mr.Conservative.. :)
Here's my take on the wiretap issue:
I think the White House is walking a very fine line here. Things can very easily get out of hand -- comments pulled out of context and the basic freedom of speech taken away from the masses. That, I believe, is the reason why folks have very strong opinions about this.

At the same time, I am inclined to say that "eavesdropping" is not necessarily a bad idea. However, there needs to be more data, other than assurances, from the government about this.
