Re: NPR says bye to the Econoline

Did they recently fire all of their copy editors?

It's probably a transcript from the show, which often don't get edited much.

So just standard NPR crap then. Lack of detail and shoddy reporting are the norm. Got it.

I listen to NPR and that probably sounded fine on the air. Sort of a fluffy filler piece.

Why do you call NPR "crap", and accuse it of lack of detail and shoddy reporting? Do you listen to it a lot so you know? What news source would you judge to be superior?

Well, there was their report that Gabby Giffords was killed in the Tucson shooting, the Juan Williams firing fiasco, altering of transcripts, etc. I don't listen any more.
