Public Media Deserves Federal Support

I used to enjoy "Wait, wait, don't tell me!" until it became so blatently partisan. Today (03/18/2012) the first part of the program was dedicated solely to mocking former Governor Romney, beginning with yuck-ups about his attempt at humor in the south and his "pandering" by saying, "y'all". Where was the mockery when Hillary Clinton used the ridiculous fake southern accent in Selma, AL, or when President Obama turned on the accent and used the word "y'all" in Selma? That's the only time I've ever heard him say "y'all". But we can't mock democrats now, can we?

This is why I favor elimination of federal funding of NPR. Public funds should not be used to support a program that is clearly designed to trash republican candidates during an election cycle, thus indirectly promoting the democratic party. Today the host's excuse was that Romney just keeps providing more material for jokes. Dishonest. You seek out the material, sir. And if you had sought it out fairly, you could have found plently on the other side over the past few years, beginning with the President,'s enhanced accent and vocabulary before black audiences and continuing with numerous gaffes made during this visits to the "57 states, with two to go".
