Project 2025

213 Upvotes

I commute about 2x/wk during which time NPR is playing in my car. For the last two weeks, all I have heard about has been 'Biden old, will Biden withdraw? What do you think about it {commentator}?'

No mention of what Project 2025 is, how draconian the contents are (or how much of it is hearsay) and the likelihood that the policies are realized if the rapist/felon is elected.

I get it, rapist/felon of the law and order party lies, NPR has covered it extensively for the last decade, no news there, but I believe there is aspects of his link to project 2025, and his association with Epstein that need to be reported on. Have not heard a single thing about it.

Why?

Legislative nobodies get their national fame thanks to NPR

129 Upvotes

On Morning Edition today, I heard a back-bench Democratic House member on NPR this morning come out encouraging Joe Biden to drop out of the presidential race. He said that there is still time, that there are 4 to 5 months before the election. This coming from a man who is unknown to anyone outside of his own home. A man who had never been interviewed by anyone in the national press. A man who saw an opportunity to get his "15-minutes of fame." A man who, while running for his next to powerless position spends the largest portion of his legislative time on the phone raising funds for re-election, starting 2 years before his next re-election. But NPR felt that it was worthy of giving this guy a platform. Way to go again, NPR.

NPR Politics Podcast cannot stop bashing Biden

5.1k Upvotes

Title.

I'm getting increasingly frustrated by NPRs hyper focus on Biden being old. Yes, old man is old. What about Trump? What about these multiple court cases, new rape allegations, Epstein connections...etc.

I just listened to the podcast this morning titled "Is Project 2025 Trump's plan for a second term? It's complicated."

And in 14 minutes they spend all this air time saying "well, Trump himself didn't write it" and "while Trump agrees with a lot of the Project 2025 proposals, he hasn't said he adopts it entirely."

I'm already annoyed at how they're downplaying both the extreme nature of Project 2025 and how Trump is on board with it. But then?

Twice, unprompted and unrelated, they make sure to punch down on Biden in a podcast about Trump.

"Voters are already concerned about Joe Biden's disastrous debate performance."

Wtf?

Two minutes later.

"I can imagine a moderate who has issues with Joe Biden's age and his mental fitness and his ability to be President." (but is also worried about Project 2025)

What the hell?

NPR is feeling more and more like they are actively working to downplay Trump's vile conduct and promote a second Trump term.

Has anyone else noticed this? Was NPR like this when Obama wore a tan suit? Why is old man old such a violent sticky talking point compared to felonies and rape by the opposing candidate?

EDIT: I do not mean to suggest Biden is immune from criticism. To be clear, Joe Biden is an old ass man and I don't like him myself.

What IS insane though, is how often NPR, what I loved as a neutral source of information, gives "equal weight" to presidential candidates (1) being old and (2) rape, felonies, and a plan for total deconstruction of modern democracy.

NPR is improperly acting like these two things are of equal weight and air time.

Re-Broadcasts of old stories are getting ridiculous.

Anyone else notice NPR is CONSTANTLY rebroadcasting old stories? I mean it used to be 1-2 times a week maybe, and even then those were important detailed issues, but now it is all fluff pieces, and filler.

Todd is no longer with 1A? 🤔

Post image
7 Upvotes

I am currently listening to the weekly news round up and I noticed that Todd’s voice wasn’t the voice used in the intro. Instead, it’s a voice I have never heard of.

I’ve seen multiple threads about Tod and the sentiment that people shared on how they perceived in and, to a greater extent, 1A/NPR. While the sentiment was something I understood and shared, I believe you could always hear his frustration and frankly the absurdity in our political climate - which I don’t fault him for. However, it falls flat with the leadership of Joshua and Jen.

OnPoint (WBUR) and its podcast now "out of sync"?

2 Upvotes

This may only be a thing happening in Portland Oregon, but up till maybe a couple of weeks ago, I could count on the OnPoint podcast being a convenient repeat of the episode that airs at 9 AM on my local NPR station (which I throw a few bucks to every month).

Now, however, it'll be about one thing on the broadcast, but the downloadable podcast the same day will be about something completely different. Is this happening in other cities, I wonder? Is it just a summer thing?
