CEO admits bias
If you're biased and you know it, clap your hands. I don't mind bias (we're all biased), I more mind dishonesty. So every time I hear a reporter on NPR claim they're non-biased, right before they prove otherwise, it irks the crap out of me. But then, every now and then, one surprises me and openly admits the truth. Like their CEO said in 2017,
Liberals outnumber conservatives in the media by some 5 to 1, and that comports with my own anecdotal experience at National Public Radio. When you are liberal, and everyone else around you is as well, it is easy to fall into groupthink on what stories are important, what sources are legitimate and what the narrative of the day will be.
Now that, completely fits my experience with NPR. I often want to throw things at the radio when they start one of their stupid leftist memes like, "government failed to solve this, the solution is more government", or "I know, let's pass a law/regulation/tax to fix it". Which seems their solution to just about everything. (When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail).

Excellent article, where NPR CEO admits Liberal Bias in NPR, and that when he explored things beyond his Liberal/Progressive enclave, that people were nothing like what he'd been told or imagined. It's a shame that this article had to run in NYPost, and is like nothing you'd ever hear on NPR.
