NPR insults Tea Party Movement, National Public Radio insults Americans, Learn to speak Tea Bag, Ellen Weiss, Cartoon is staying up, NPR values, civility and civil discourse, Alicia C. Shepard

Many years ago I listened to NPR and Rush Limbaugh. I considered that a balanced approach to getting information. There were many decent shows on NPR (National Public Radio), my favorite being “Car Talk.” In the early nineties some of the NPR shows would slip in what I considered elitist, condescending comments about politicians and those of differing political opinions, but it generally did not get out of hand. I began listening less and less to NPR because a trend developed of increasing elitist comments, “we know more than you do.”

Recently NPR crossed over the line with a wholesale attack on average, hard working, patriotic Americans. The following was posted here, January 5, 2010.

“NPR Shows Everyone How to Speak ‘Tea Bag’… with OUR Money”
“Prominently displayed on the National Public Radio (NPR) web site is a new cartoon titled, “Learn To Speak Tea Bag.” Of course, Tea Party activists don’t ever use the term “tea bag,” a phrase that refers to a sexual act and which has been used by the media to demean the entire tea party movement.”
NPR insults hard working, concerned, patriotic Americans

Apparently NPR, in lock step with their kindred spirits Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama, is so out of touch with reality that they believe the Tea Party Movement is composed of a bunch of Right Wing extremists. Nothing  could be further from the truth. And this attitude comes from an organization that claims to present the news.
To add insult to injury, NPR has come out with a response. This response is no apology. The first part is an attempt by
Alicia C. Shepard to diffuse the controversy. The last part reveals the attitude of NPR management.
From the NPR ombudsman, Alicia C. Shepard, January 8, 2010.
“Loud Protests on NPR’s ‘Tea Party’ Cartoon”
“When the “Learn to Speak Tea Bag” cartoon making fun of “Tea Party” activists was published on Nov.12, there were 5 comments. By 6 p.m. this past Monday, there were 258. By Wednesday night, over 1,100 people had commented and it was still the most-recommended link on NPR’s web site. On Monday and Tuesday, calls came in every 10 minutes. Over 300 wrote to me — most of them angry.

The 90-second animation, which creator Mark Fiore calls satire, rather summarily dismisses participants in the Tea Party movement as inarticulate, paranoid bumblers. The video “teaches” the viewer to speak conversational “tea bag.”
Moderator: Finally, learning a new language doesn’t have to be hard. You can be fluent in conversational tea bag in just a few short minutes. Lesson one: Don’t get distracted by the confusing words of other languages.
Character: I think the public option and the competition it would foster would really — socialist, socialist.
Moderator: Good, very good. Lesson two: If you’re having trouble understanding the words of others or being understood yourself, use teabag’s stronger, more descriptive words.

Character: “Nazi, Nazi, Nazi.”

It’s actually not that funny — especially to those on the right, including members of the Tea Party movement, which is populated by passionate Americans who don’t like the direction President Obama is taking the country.

“The cartoon is a perfect caricature of what NPR looks like to conservatives: liberals snidely imagining conservatives to be monosyllabic clods who can’t make an argument beyond name-calling,” said Tim Graham, director of media analysis for the conservative Media Research Center. “Conservatism is ‘satirized’ into a form of political retardation.””

“That said, there are problems with the Tea Bag animation. Chief among them is it doesn’t fit with NPR values, one of which is a belief in civility and civil discourse.

Fiore is talented, but this cartoon is just a mean-spirited attack on people who think differently than he does and doesn’t broaden the debate. It engages in the same kind of name-calling the cartoon supposedly mocks.”

“There will be no apology and Fiore’s cartoon is staying up, said Ellen Weiss, senior vice president for news. “Opinion and satire are going to sting some members of the audience and soothe others,” she said, noting NPR has received some positive feedback. “This one satire is not the only coverage on the topic and while it offends some members of the audience, I see no reason to remove it.””

This goes way beyond opinion and satire. As Alicia C. Shepard stated,

“That said, there are problems with the Tea Bag animation. Chief among them is it doesn’t fit with NPR values, one of which is a belief in civility and civil discourse.

Fiore is talented, but this cartoon is just a mean-spirited attack on people who think differently than he does and doesn’t broaden the debate. It engages in the same kind of name-calling the cartoon supposedly mocks.”
Ellen Weiss, senior vice president of NPR stated “There will be no apology and Fiore’s cartoon is staying up.”

  5. MY FAVORITE ARNOLD SCHWARTZENNEGER AND NPR STORY.

    Several years ago I was driving between Richmond to D.C on I-95 and to keep awake I turned on Natl Public Radio to get me mad and awake.Terry Gross was interviewing Conan O’Brien . He was not yet the host of the Tonight Show. In the middle of a nondescript interview Conan excitedly breaks in and asks Ms. Gross “Do you know what?” “No” she said. He said that opponents of Arnold are sending out pictures of him naked. “And do you know what? He is winning by 4 inches.” I almost drove off the road.

    “Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke” – Will Rogers

    PS – NPR will be screaming like stuck pigs when FOX has to bail them out and take-over.

    Man tries to recall Landrieu
    By Mike Hasten • mhasten@gannett.com • January 8, 2010

    BATON ROUGE — A New Iberia man’s drive to recall U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu is useless since there’s no provision in state or federal laws or constitutions that allows it, says Secretary of State Jay Dardenne.

    GOP Senate Candidate Accuses Dems of Disregarding Voters to Pass Health Bill

    FOXNews.com

    The Republican candidate for Kennedy’s former seat is accusing Democrats of being open to thwarting the will of the people to pass the health care bill

    Sen. Paul Kirk, D-Mass., an interim senator who was handpicked to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s seat, vowed Friday to vote for a final version of President Obama’s health care bill even if the GOP prevails in a special election next week.

    In light of that pledge, and potential administrative hurdles that could stall seating of Kirk’s replacement, the Republican candidate for Kennedy’s former seat is accusing Democrats of being open to thwarting the will of the people in order to pass the health care bill.

    Kirk said he’d have no problem voting for the bill, even if Republican Scott Brown, an opponent of the health care bill, were to be elected by Massachusetts voters but not sworn in until after the Senate’s vote.

  12. Don in California // January 9, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Hey Don,

    Ya, a new wrinkle, eh?

    They’re trying to ram this thing through as soon as they can because they know that Scott has a good chance to win.

    Here’s the thing: I believe that as of 1/19/10, Kirk’s ‘term’ expires. He is no longer Interim Senator after the election.

    Now, if they delay seating Scott, that will leave MA with NO Senator, pro Death Care or against it. That means no vote either way if they ram it through after 1/19.

    Don’t put it past ‘Governor’ Deval Patrick and his merry band of thieves to change yet another law if Scott wins.

    I will try to check to see the stipulations of Kirk’s term and when it officially ends. Let me see if I can do it from home; if not, I can get to it on Monday when additional resources are available.

    Be back later…

    Thanks, and if kirks term expires on 1/19 then they will lose number 60 and only have 59 to 40 reps.

    Hi Don,

    A quick scan tells me that Kirk’s term ends with the Special Election on 1/19.

    I’m gonna call a pal on Monday who knows everything that’s happening on Bacon (oops, I mean ‘Beacon’) Hill :) ; she’ll have the right answer.

    Will post as soon as I find out fer shure, but indications are that his term ends on Election Day. If that’s so, just watch the ‘maneuvering’ that’ll take place. There ain’t no other place like this on earth (thank goodness).

  16. Don in California

    I saw an article earlier abotut the recall petition in La not being valid. Now I can’t find it. It seem like La. doesn’t have the right to recall federal politicians and the recall is going to be advanced.

  17. Don in California

    Sorry, “abotut” should be “about” and “recall is going” should be “recall is not going to be”.

  30. CW……………

    Excellent post! In reading your post the thought regarding the latest percentage figures crossed my mind. These figures are a few days old now so take that into consideration. The last figures I read showed that for the alleged first time Conservatives were ahead of everyone else,at 40%. The middle group the MODERATES were at 36%, and the LIBERALS were bringing up the rear at 21%. In all probability NPR doesn’t have these figures. I often take issue with Juan Williams who pretends to be a moderate. He sometims forgets his stated position and jumps into assist the LIBERALS. He puts me in mind of Bob Beckel. Of all the panelists that I have watched I find myself following the viewpoints of Charles Krauthammer more than anyone.
    At this point I am restating my position regarding Beck. While I am still angered by his not so nice comments about BIRTHERS, I have not completely turned away from him. He still possesses certain attributes which I believe will eventually help him to recover some of the viewers that he undoubtedly lost,because of his rhetoric. I believe that it is extremely important for us to also be aware of other political things that are going on besides the behavior of Soetoro. Beck has taken some of this apart bolt for bolt, and presented the core truth about Acorn, and the Progressives. In addition I personally think these seemingly insignificant issues are part, and parcel to what is going on in the Whitehouse in general. When thought of in a generalised context it is easy to see the connections.
    In spite of all of this it is our own responsibility to find the particular issues which we choose to either believe or disbelieve, and research it as far as we possibly can. Then we don’t have to rely upon someone’s opinion. We have formed our own! Another person whose values I admire is Newt Gingrich. I personally see him as the probable front runner candidate for POTUS in 2012. Perhaps with Palin,or Keyes as VP.

  31. Ms. Helga……………………………

    This says a lot about CONAN OBRIEN’S values doesn’t it. I have long thought of him as just another deviate.

  32. This is so true….

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” – Cicero, 42 B.C.

    ———————————————————-
    Anytime the dependents go above 9 the company has to flag it to the IRS. (I was told this at my HR dept. when I got a bonus and wanted the money now – I changed to 9 for a pay period)

  36. DemisetheMenace,

    Nine sounds like a good number, seven more than I need, ha!

  37. The illegal and criminal ascension of Barack Hussein Obama, a foreigner hiding in America, exhibiting absolute servitude around the globe to those who funnelled money to him and made certain the American elections were usurped. It is all about Muslim oil money which Obama is paying off in favors.
    British Obama puts Muslim terrorists in civilian courts not to offend the oil Muslims who funded his college education and illegally funded his 2008 campaign.$300 million dollars for the 2008 Obama campaign came from overseas. 2 of his main fund raisers were Pakistanis with whom he lived whilst bopping between NYC and Pakistan between 1980-83. Obama never attended Columbia, his diploma was bought by Saudi money; nobody knows him there.
    Obama gained admission to Harvard from Malcolm X’s attorney who wrote a letter on his behalf from a black American Muslim being funded by the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabian finance. 2 diplomas bought with Saudi money.
    Obama owes numerous terrorist sponsors and narco counterfeiting terrorists favors=blackmail. Obama has imported an extra 30,000 terror-sponsoring “diversity visa” muslims in the past year.

    The culprits are evident:
    LIBYA got their Lockerbie Bomber released which Obama could have stopped and did not. Khadaffi calls Obama a Muslim son. Obama gave Khadaffi $2.5million. Obama campaigned for Khadaffi-backed Odinga.
    SYRIA gets an ambassador with full diplomatic rights and Boeing contracts which stunned the diplomatic community as it appears Obama did all this for “nothing”, when it was all payback.
    Obama bows to the Saudi King as another clue.
    HAMAS: Obama negotiates with terrorists in Hamas, gives Hamas $.9 Billion, and calls Jews disgusting, and setting up a Palestinian state.
    IRAN: Obama allows Iran to develop its weapons unfettered. He set up the Twitter Revolution allowing Ahmadinejad’s butchering Iranian Patriots with Twitter data. Obama tipped Iran off in French President Sarkozy, who now loathes him, outing the Persian communists in their nuclear weapons plant.
    SAUDIS: Flight 253/Yemen war to benefit Saudis, GITMO shut down per Saudi instruction, why Obama is paying 1 million dollars a head to free Gitmo terrorists to island vacation retreats, why Obama is bowing to the Saudi King. 9 11 terrorists are being rubbed in the faces of New York Citizens given American rights, why he wants the rest of the Gitmo terrorists with American rights at Thomson Correctional in Illinois, Nidal Hasan was allowed to proceed to murder due to PC, CAIR being coddled…

    CHINA: Obama dumps human rights of Chinese Patriots just as long as Hillary Clinton gets the Peking girls to sign the debt checks Obama is creating.
    Rashid Khalidi is the face of this Muslim oil mafia which has a leash on Barack Hussein Obama.

    I received a couple of emails from Jeff this week but nothing on the IRS certified letter!

  40. I don’t believe that we will be able to get Soetoro out of office in 2010, but we have an excellent chance of it in 2012. Unless he does something that puts either the DOJ, Congress, or both in one hell of a bind, (which neither can lie their way out of in the interim), there is little chance that he will be unseated between now and 2012. However that doesn’t take into account if sombody comes up with another smoking gun that makes a loud enough “bang”. If that happens then all bets are off.It would need to have total world wide distribution in any/or all newspapers, and magazines in print. It will need to be brought to the attention of ALL world governments, as well. I also continue to pray that the POE-INS records will be found. That too WILL cause his eviction from the Whitehouse, without further adieu because these records TELL IT ALL.

  45. CW, Lots of supporting site. Probolly end in moderation!!

    Received this email/letter concerning Glenn Beck,

    Glenn,

    Those of us that have been following the facts that disqualify Barack Hussein Obama from being eligible for the office of the President of the United States of America are astounded at your audacity to insult us.

    There are those of this nation with a much higher acumen and intellect than either you or me that have dedicated the time to fully understand the complete data set that form the matrix of the usurper. As a result of their generosity to share what they have learned, untold millions of Americans now realize that “We the People” have been defrauded. Yes, Glenn; there are even Democrats who are in the know.

    For a brief window of time, gracious Patriots will allow you the benefit of the doubt and forgive your “not understanding”. But with the vast wealth and resources you have at your disposal, if you do not show an honest effort to have an honest debate; you shall befall the slings and arrows of TRUTH and forever be cast the Inconvenient Traitor.

    Make no mistake. Facts are Facts irrespective of the seeker. A cloak is as a cloak does.

The ability to know all of the millions that have tried as best they could to help in the effort to expose Barack Hussein Obama for the fraud that he is would be impossible and therefore any omission from this list is not intentional.

    So Glenn, as long as you are going to have a guest or two on your show; why not invite some of these true patriots?

    If you really, really want to tell us that you know about all of this but Rupert has threatened to change your time slot to just before the Red Eye; then just take your candy jar and tap the following:

    .. / -.-. .- -. .—-. –

    that’s Morse Code for “I can’t”.

    Truer words have yet to be spoken. The passage that you posted is very beautifully stated. That is one reason why I so enjoy reading well thought out,and scribed texts.

  47. I think we need to stay focused on the NBC
    ineligibility of Obama. Too many politicians
    and members of the media are trying to
    get us off guard. We need to focus and
    GET RID OF HIM in 2010. I think something
    will break soon. Anyone who lies as much
    as BO does will get caught in one too many!

    . It is a real a pleasure to read beautifully written literature. The subject always seems to flow like water. I sometimes visit our newly renovated public library,and go to the classics area. Hours pass so quickly when you are totally absorbed in a “GOOD” book. Our library now has 100,000 sq.feet under roof, and 2 floors.The Geneaology department is rated as 2nd only to the facility at Latter Day Saints Archives, in Salt Lake City. They had a few stumbles during the construction stage but the contractors finally got it done, and it was well worth waiting for.

    Linda from NY,

    Thanks for the article. now remember more of wht I heard. Forwarding to all military buddiies. Increasing my dependents Monday, maybe 12 – 15!!
    ———————————————————-
    Anytime the dependents go above 9 the company has to flag it to the IRS. (I was told this at my HR dept. when I got a bonus and wanted the money now – I changed to 9 for a pay period)
    ***************************************
    I have heard 9 as well. 10 raises a red flag for the IRS. Check with a tax attorney or CPA, though, just to be sure.

    Me too! I however am not holding my breath. I believe that it is going to be a long and difficult fight. I say this because there is so much corruption about us. The aggregate of all of the levels of corruption is so vast that it is like a beast with a thousand tentacles. All of which are into a different crevice in the ground. Each tentacle must be severed separately.

    Also, there may be a penalty assessed in April for doing this. It is with self employed people. We – the self employed – need to be owing within $1000 on April 15 th or penalties occur.

    I am not going to write Beck off yet, either, because he has done a lot of good work exposing BO and associates. Many people believe that the BC issue is a “trap”, so I can understand if Beck feels that way too. But Beck’s denigration went too far.

    View all members of the media with skepticism. That is my rule of thumb.

    **** New Post ****

  55. OldSalt77–
    I agree with your comments on Charles Krauthammer and Newt Gingrich–both o.k. in
    my mind.
    I’m wondering who has the silver **** that
    will be the answer to getting rid of him. Dr. Manning’s comments on the Afghan years
    were interesting IF he has the goods to back that up. I hope his goes for it!
    I keep thinking the Idiot knew about the Christmas bomber prior to it happening.
    I think it’s pretty easy for him to have Al Qaeda
    contacts what with Odinga, Khadaffi, Rezko,
    and other Arab contacts of his as go betweens.
    Still need the POE info on them as you say
    and would be good to get the foreign-student
    college records on him UNSEALED.
    Will ONE honest judge order it?! Americans
    are waiting for the truth to be unveiled.
    2010 is the year for it!

  56. “It is a real a pleasure to read beautifully written literature. The subject always seems to flow like water. I sometimes visit our newly renovated public library,and go to the classics area.”

    Thanks, OS77. I think that the quote that I gave meant just as much then as it does now. It shows some things never change. Actually a lot never changes. Being a traitor is the same meaning now as it was back then with the first traitor. Circumstances may be different, but it’s just the same old same old. Still that quote said it just right.

  57. OldSalt77:

    I’m saving that quote. When you mediate upon it, it says even more.
