    Now that we live in a 24/7 news world all news sources have a bias -- what sells and which listeners will spend more money with their advertisers (or in the case of NPR who will donate more to their programming). There is no such thing as neutral in the news world. Knowing what the bias is for the source you are listening to, reading from or watching allows you to sort out fact from editorializing. If there were no left to balance the right how would you know what are facts and what is opinion?

    It's very difficult to avoid some sort of bias, one way or another. As NPR is dependant on donations, they must, by necessity, be biased in the way of their donors; but for the most part, NPR tries to have sensible dialog, and reasonable fairness where possible.

    It's probably biased to whichever side is saying it isn't biased.

    The things I like about NPR is that they (mostly) have civil and thoughtful discussions. Interesting news and interesting programs. It is biased, but you consider the source as you're listening. Among mainstream news, they're probably the best of the lot.

    They piss everyone off regularly (left and right, i mean), so I am fairly certain they are doing it right.

    If anything, NPR is biased towards attempting intellectual discussions rather than emotionally charged ones.

    No it isn't biased. I find their broadcasts to be very well balanced.

    Now if you want biased just look at Faux Newz. or for that matter Glenn Beck or "Fat Boy" Lumbaugh. They are biased.

    I like NPR a lot, and although they do have different perspectives from varying points of view, I feel they overall are a little bit slanted to they left, but the idea public radio funded more by the people than corporate advertisers is more of an ideal of the left. I still believe Public radio/ television gives a more unadulterated view of an issue than the various media reserved for one ideology overall.

    If you actually listen to the station, you will notice they have been bad mouthing Obama rather frequently lately.

    Personally. I don't feel that it is. Of course, I know most RWNJ when they find this thread will say that it is biased far to the left. A I said, I don't think so, but then, I am a very liberal progressive, so perhaps I'm biased. :-D
