    when the right wing started going after them and their funding. They deliberately watered down their news, bent over backwards to include right=wing commentators and viewpoints and guests, spent more time on "soft" stories rather than hard political reporting.

    I haven't listened to their news in years. Occasionally I go online to get Nina Totenberg's analysis of Supreme Court decisions, but that's about it.

    •  Same here-- around 2002 or so I stopped listening (1+ / 0-)

      to them.  The Republican thugs had been wearing away at them and systematically bullying them into changing leadership, changing what kinds of stories were done, changing points of view... and when the Iraq war started it made me sick to hear how they favored Bush in their coverage-- by "favored" I mean didn't do anything investigative, nothing challenging.  That was it.  That ended it.  

      I spent a couple of lonely years without my drivetime trust companions.  It was a big change in my life.  But I was not going to buy into their corporatized, pro-GOP product.  Then got satellite radio and started instead to listen to music as I drove.  It's not the same, but that part of my life is over until they change back.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
