At one time, National Public Radio (NPR) could boast of a proud standing within the journalistic community. Often, NPR was envisioned as the only “truly unbiased” source of news, especially news that addressed U.S. politics.

However, just like the corporate mainstream media, NPR is no longer politically unbiased. In fact, America’s source of “public radio” may be more biased than most. There are particular corporate media outlets that clearly work as the propaganda voice of the far left.

But over the last decade, NPR has continually leaned more and more towards a radical progressive ideology. This obvious shift in allegiance has triggered many Americans to stop listening.

Nevertheless, NPR keeps trying to appear as if its views aren’t “left-leaning.” It isn’t working. The obvious became blatantly clear in a recent interview. After Republicans totally underperformed during the 2022 midterms, NPR saw an opportunity.

Certainly, or so the programming executives thought, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich would be mad at certain members of his party. The former Republican congressman has voiced his disappointment over the overwhelmingly disappointing midterm results.

NPR thought that Gingrich would attack current members of Congress, and especially former President Donald Trump. In all reality, NPR thought Gingrich would continue to drive a wedge between conservatives by pitting one side against the other.

However, and certainly to NPR’s dismay, the interview didn’t quite work out the way they planned. From the start, anchor Mary Louise Kelly tried to bait Gingrich with loaded questions. She obviously wanted the former Speaker to bash President Trump.

It didn’t work. During Friday’s “All Things Considered” interview, Gingrich did agree with the idea that Republicans need to stop underestimating Biden. That was where NPR thought the direction that the interview would go. It didn’t.

When Gingrich made a reference to the “rigged” 2020 presidential election, one might think the host would take advantage of it as a way to attack the former president. However, Kelly opened up a can of worms that she probably wishes she wouldn’t have opened.

Kelly pressed Gingrich on the topic of a “stolen election.” He didn’t bite. Gingrich stressed the election was “rigged”, maybe not flat-out stolen. He quickly pointed to the manipulation by social media companies like Twitter and Facebook.

In perfect liberal NPR form, Kelly tried to insist that dozens of courts have denounced the claims by refusing to hear cases. But Gingrich immediately made an important distinction. He said these courts were hearing arguments about a stolen election, not a rigged one.

Gingrich and millions of Americans believe there is a profound difference. As more evidence is revealed through the “Twitter Files,” it’s obvious that big tech and the federal government manipulated the election. That’s when Kelly proceeded to drive the interview off the cliff.

People can call it what they want, but it was cheating. Attacking someone for saying the election was stolen instead of rigged is resorting to semantics instead of the truth. Kelly did ask the direct question, “For the record, do you believe Joe Biden was legitimately elected president?”

To NPR’s surprise, Gingrich was ready. He answered bluntly, “For the record, I believe that he won under the terms that were set up, and I think that the entire elite system cheated in every way they could to defeat Donald Trump.”

Oops! Certainly, that was not the answer NPR wanted or expected. This would almost be comical if NPR wasn’t taxpayer-funded. One would think a publicly funded source of news would be unbiased. It’s not. NPR is not unbiased, as it rightfully should be.

In fact, it’s almost as bad at NPR as it is at the likes of MSNBC and others. Maybe it’s time for taxpayers to pull the plug on National Public Radio. At best, we could rename it “VGTRK” or “Radio Moscow!”

  • I’m trying to remember when npr was not biased. Can’t and I remember all the way back to the nineties. Not sure what you are talking about.

  • NPR was fairly middle of the road back 40 to 50 years ago. Not so much since & they have been one of the most biased toward the un-American Left in the last 10 to 20 years.
    The House controls the purse strings & I think the new House should take a look at funding for these idiots, come January.

  • Re: Newt Gingrich. What the world does not understand is that we are not underestimating Biden, we are underestimating the DNC. Biden does not have the cognitive capacity to the extent that the Democratic National Committee does. All of what we are experiencing is from the DNC and Obama!

  • “she probably wishes she wouldn’t have opened”

    The average person can be excused for making such an egregious grammatical error but NOT A PERSON WHO WRITES FOR A LIVING.

    she probably wishes she HADN’T opened – not WOULDN’T HAVE opened

  • The early shows on NPR have time devoted to segments on climate change, racism (white supremacy). When Trump was in office, they had one to bash Trump and further the latest propaganda slandering him. They have not mentioned the twitter files but have interviewed a couple of leftists who claimed they “resigned” from twitter. They studiously avoid any talk of illegal immigration, homelessness, opioid and fentanyl deaths or anything that could be blamed on the Biden administration. They are a tool of the democrat party.

  • If Republicans weren’t wimps, they would demand any entity be defunded if it doesn’t support free speech and political neutrality. They should do this to NPR and PBS yesterday. Talk about low hanging fruit. They should also go after colleges for creating a hostile environment for conservatives. Big tech is another obvious target.

  • “But over the last decade, NPR has continually leaned more and more towards a radical progressive ideology. ” I beg your stupidity, but I haven’t listened to ‘NPR’ in over 40 years because they were like this that many years ago (probably more)!!!
