    You've got to be pretty far right to think NPR is still liberal. Have you listened to it since it's funding has been cut?

    I was listening the other day and they were bragging about how they were the liberal voice in America and then they put Jonah Goldberg, a far far right winger, on and let him spew his poison.

    Some liberal voice. I also see right wing bias in NPR's news reporting.

    That's where we are today.

    The problem is everyday normal liberals think since the GOP has gone right and is winning, they need to run and catch up. So todays democrats are about where Reagan or Nixon was in terms of policy. Eisenhower would be considered far left by todays standards. But it leaves a lot of people unhappy and somewhat apathetic.

    It was called "Air America".

    It didn't last long...
    tells me that liberals are more prone to be thinking for themselves, building an opinion from multiple sources, rather than letting talk show hosts tell them what to think.

    Well, I have heard lots of reasons, and I'll add that one to the list.

    I always though AA failed because not enough people listened to it.
    Agreed.. again, confirming my point. Liberals don't tend to worship a radio talk show as their only source of truth.

    Could you be more specific? Which year are you talking about that the funding was cut?
