The biggest complaint I’ve had with much of the mainstream media is that they have this attitude of being “fair” to both sides of an issue. When Obama’s birth certificate was a thing, the media seemed unwilling to say “no, this side is idiotic”, instead being “fair and balanced” by giving both sides time. The problem with that is that when both sides of an issue are given air, it puts them on equal footing in the eyes of the viewer.
NPR says no more. Obviously the right is going to assail this as liberal media bias, but I applaud ’em for tiring of the bullshit.
