I'm a big fan of NPR's Fresh Air. But I listen mostly off the web. Checkout Kevin Phillips Bad Money book: http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Money-Reckless-Politics-Capitalism/dp/0670019070/ref=pd_sim_b_3

He once was a regular commentator on NPR's Morning Edition before they fired all their older news folks in favor of younger voices.

I remember that happened about 5 years ago or so. I heard the KP interview. I miss him.

In 1995, NPR demoted Bob Edwards and Linda Weirthiemer,. Bob Edwards is now with XMRadio and Linda is still with NPR.

NPR has a very long list of law suits it has settled from former reporters. Recently, NPR fired the CEO that done a great job managing their growth and going on the web.

What's NPR's problem? Perhaps they don't know if they're a business or a public service so they tread both worlds and give mixed signals.

i stay away from npr news as i find it stilted. other than that i enjoy the programming. the variety of music shows is most gratifying. in fact im listening to the world cafe music show as i write. echos with john deliberto is also a favorite. all in all i appreciate what they do.

For me their news is boring, overly earnest, and self-congratulatory in its "sensitivity."

Our music is good though--jazz, alternative, etc.
