NPR Executives Will Not Take Down Teabagger-Bashing Cartoon They Agree With

It’s not only CNN and MSNBC who decided this year to openly attack ordinary Americans who oppose the democrat’s record spending and massive expansion of government…
National Public Radio is using taxpayer dollars to bash teabaggers on their website–
“Learn to Speak Teabag”

The video pokes fun of the angry teabaggers showing their Nazi and Stalin signs.

For some reason the video skipped over the angry attacks by Nancy Pelosi, Alan Grayson, Baron Hill and Harry Reid who called tea party protesters Nazis, terrorists, evil-mongers and mobsters. Hey, if you can’t beat them, bash them.

Here is the video on the NPR website

After a controversy erupted earlier this week over the nasty liberal cartoon NPR posted a response on their website today. NPR executives said today that they would not apologize for the cartoon by Mark Fiore, nor would they remove it from the NPR site. NPR did however enlarge the word “OPINION” on the page where Fiore’s cartoon appears and labeled it his “personal take” on the issue.
And, they wonder why conservatives think they’re biased?

Byron York has more at The Washington Examiner including this:

So there will be no apology, no withdrawal, and no further steps to provide balance in commentary. Right now, what balance there is can be found in the comments section. “This should be on the Democratic National Committee website,” one California listener wrote. “Why did NPR allow this? I’ll tell you why. The people who allowed it have the same views.”

Indeed. They didn’t see anything wrong with it because they agreed with it.

By the way… NPR called me for comment on this report earlier in the week. They told me they would send me a link to the article when it was published. They didn’t.
