NPR's Nina Totenberg Has No Journalistic Ethics


This won't surprise most of you but it's worth mentioning. As long as NPR receives one penny from taxpayers their propaganda should be exposed. Here she does the equivalent of cut and paste to purposely distort comments and paint Clarence Thomas as a radical.

This immediately qualifies her as one of POV's "journalists". You would be surprised how many hardcore liberals get their news ONLY from NPR.
My tax money going to this is as bad as going to ACORN. $Trillions$ overdrawn at the bank, and we have to support such malfeasance.

Honest Debate said...

Sark,

LiberalPOV has made a few mindless comments on other threads since I posted this so I know he's seen it. Why do you suppose he has yet to comment? It's a rhetorical question.

A little background on why Ms Totenberg might have some journalist credentials.

"
BACKGROUND:
Totenberg's coverage of legal affairs and the Supreme Court has won widespread recognition, including the Peabody Award, presented to NPR for Totenberg’s Supreme Court reporting in 1991, the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for investigative reporting, the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton for excellence in radio journalism, and the prestigious Joan S. Barone Award for excellence in Washington-based national affairs/public policy reporting.

Totenberg has been honored eight times by the American Bar Association for excellence in legal reporting. She has won every major journalism award in broadcasting, and is the only radio journalist to have won the National Press Foundation award for Broadcaster of the Year.

Totenberg is also a regular panelist on Inside Washington, a weekly syndicated public affairs television program produced in the nation's capital, and a frequent contributor to major newspapers and periodicals, including the New York Times Magazine, the Harvard Law Review, the Christian Science Monitor, Parade magazine, and New York Magazine.

I've read the post three time and don't get what's misrepresented? Help me out I can't find what has you pissed off?

Is Clarance Thomas far right ? Yes

Honest Debate said...

Lib,

Read it three more times and if you still don't get it then I'll explain.

Sarkazein said...

HOPEfully the beginning of the end. And way over due.

guy faulkes said...

Interesting link, Sark. This may be the start of the impeachment journey instead of ACORN, as I thought it would be.

Totenberg should be dismissed from NPR at once or public funding for this organization should be cut. As a matter of fact, both should happen.

Another step to reduce the deficit!

Honest Debate said...

Thanks Sark,

I should probably start a new thread with that one. I read that it could have been done on purpose (the easily undone redacting) so there would be more pressure on Obama to comply with the supoena. It makes sense. Blago comes from the same Chigago thug school as the manchild.

Here is a real a winner. You obviously are enthralled with lawyers. Your credibility (not that you had any) is gone. Remember when the T Rex ate the lawyer in Jurassic Park and the Bar Association whined loud and long. To bad we don't have more T Rex's these days!!

I've listened to this woman on NPR over the years, and she, like NPR itself is EXTREMELY biased.

It is a state funded propaganda arm of the democrat party, it should not receive one cent of public money, and their sponsors should be held accountable for supporting this tripe.

Mike D. said...

Wolf,

Don't forget... The Communist government of Venezuela has also been a major contributor to NPR lately.

Here is NPR's most recently released list of donors. See anything strange?

Honest Debate said...

Mike D.,

I just glanced at the link (I'm just passing through) thanks. I'll have to dissect it later. I'm sure it's full of surprises. Does it mean anything that Citgo is top center of page one?

Mickey Mouse as a socialist weapon! Dastardly ingenious!!

Honest Debate said...

Lib,

Citgo?

Liberal POV said...

HD

"Citgo?"

Doesn't Citgo employ thousands of Americans with living wage jobs? Do they pay American taxes? Do you know of any reason they are not a good coporate citizens? Didn't Citgo give oil to the poor on the eastern shore?

What's your case that Citgo is a worst coporate citizen than Exxon? Has Exxon ever paid the fisherman in Alaska? How about the damages in India after Bopala killing thousands?

Honest Debate said...

Sean Penn...er...I mean LiberalPOV,

Hugo Chavez owns Citgo. That's what Mike D. was referring to.

Reader said...

I hope you guys don't mind if I post a link...after reading about this fine gentleman, I really have a hard time accepting that liberals think they deserve anything. We don't owe anyone a thing...except kindness and love. There's only two commandments we can choose to live by in this lifetime...and I try my best to comply. The rest of the stuff we want, not need Lib, look up the definition of the word, is by no means important. Sorry for the ramble.

Liberal Socialist sheep,

I see you cannot answer my questions

"Hugo Chavez owns Citgo. That's what Mike D. was referring to."

Doesn't Citgo employ thousands of Americans with living wage jobs? Do they pay American taxes? Do you know of any reason they are not a good corporate citizens? Didn't Citgo give oil to the poor on the eastern shore?

What's your case that Citgo is a worst corporate citizen than Exxon? Has Exxon ever paid the fisherman in Alaska? How about the damages in India after Bhopal killing thousands?

Sarkazein said...

POV- CITGO is stolen property. The following is all happening under the watchful yet lazy eye of Obama:

BACKGROUND - Chavez is NOW getting a Russian Weapons Factory built by Putin. The Russians are building an AK-47 Kalashnikov Assault Rifle factory in Venezuela, to give armament support to Communist Rebel groups throughout the Americas. Chavez NOW has IRANIANS operating his oil refineries in Venezuela for him. It is likely only a matter of time, if not already, before Chavez has Iranian built LONG RANGE missiles, with a variety of warhead types aimed at: Guess Who?

CITGO is NOW in the process of Changing Its Name to PETRO EXPRESS (also 100% owned by Chavez), due to the loss of gasoline sales in the USA due to the recent publicity of ownership by Chavez of Venezuela.

Every dollar you spend with CITGO or PETRO EXPRESS gasoline will be used against you, your basic human rights, and your freedoms.He will start wars here in the Americas that will probably be the death of millions.

Sarkazein said...

Which one is a "better corporate citizen" comrade POV?

Sarkazein said...

OH and Comrade POV, before you answer the above question, look up the word intent.

Honest Debate said...

I just heard the most idiotic statement ever by Nora Raum on NPRs "Weekend Edition". She was talking about Arizona's just signed immigration bill. I swear this is true. She actually said:

"Lawyers are studying a bill that makes it against the law to be an illegal immigrant in Arizona."

Mike D. said...

Liberal POV,

Since Chavez' donation goes to American National Public Radio, rather than focusing on Alaskan fishermen, I wonder if you would indulge me, and instead discuss Chavez' relationship with the Venezuelan media?

Are you aware that he has forcibly shut down numerous media outlets that have been critical of his dictatorship (even using his military to storm their buildings)? Are you aware that the only type of free speech that he approves of is free speech that he wants to hear?

Do you think that his donation to an American media outlet might suggest that NPR speaks the message that Hugo Chavez would prefer us to hear?

Sarkazein said...

Mark D wrote-"Do you think that his donation to an American media outlet might suggest that NPR speaks the message that Hugo Chavez would prefer us to hear?"

Well said (asked)

Sarkazein said...

Pardon me, MIKE D, I should have written.

Sarkazein said...

Like that other famously philandering Democrat, Bill Clinton, Edwards is forced to testify under oath about his extramarital sex life—specifically that much-talked-about sex tape he made with mistress Rielle Hunter—and whether he might have spent federal campaign funds to keep Hunter lavishly hidden away from the media and under the watchful eye of trusted aide Andrew Young.///

Perhaps if Edwards is convicted of his campaign fund embezzlement and Obama is convicted of his Tony Resco(sp) bribes and lying to investigators about the Senatorgate, they can share a jail cell.

Is Venezula allowed to be independent from the USA? Do you want Venezula to cut the oil supply to the US? Do you want Americans citizens to boycott Citgo? Do you know what you want or have a plan?

Liberal Socialist Sheep,

Does it ever get embarassing when you are unable to answer simple questions? do you ever question your moral values and beliefs when the beliefs you currently have are shoved down your well worn throat?

Take you Pedophilia for instance. Does it ever make you feel a flush to the face to realize you support organizations (ACORN) who support Pedophilia?

I was just wondering. LOL!!

Your ole pal

Johnny Rico

PS I got kicked off Watauga Watch over posting tough questions such as these.

LOL!!!!

Liberal POV said...

Johnny

"Does it ever make you feel a flush to the face to realize you support organizations (ACORN) who support Pedophilia? "

You have this backwards, it was a right wing conservative that went into a ACORN office wanting to open a whorehouse using underage girls and the ACORN personel call the law on him twice.


The video you saw on the internet was heavey edited to misrepresent ACORN an orgaization that give a political voice to thepoorest of our nation.

I see you're a coward and a bully to attack an orgaization of the weakest citizens of America, ACORN.

Yes, I do support ACORN as it gives a political voice to the poorest Americans.

Rico,

Don't fool yourself. You got blocked from WataugaWatch because you were trying to get banned. You said so yourself. I thought we already settled this one.

"I was banned which was most likely my hoped for outcome." - Johnny Rico

Your words, dude. Eat them, but chew and digest them more slowly this time. Your steel trap of a mind seems to have more holes than a sieve.
