I was driving back from Forward Operating Base Llama (Ft. Dix, New Jersey) yesterday when I made the mistake of listening to a recent NPR program addition, "Counterspin", a sort of Leftie version of O'Reilly's "no spin" mantra. A review of a recent book by Richard Posner, a conservative federal appellate judge, had the commentator suggesting Posner's book had no merit because it provided no evidence of the mainstream media bias Posner asserts. This was followed by an extended interview with a labor activist who claimed, without evidence, that 20,000 workers were fired in the last year for union-organizing efforts. (If this were the case, there would be 20,000 lawsuits for violations of federal labor law which protect union organizing.) This activist went to refer to the recently passed CAFTA legislation as "so-called free trade."

And the libs wonder why the ratings for public broadcasting are often too small to be measured. I have got to get X-M radio. . .

Building on LMC's points about NPR, let us not forget its much ballyhooed, private sector counterpart (for now) Air America. Indeed, we should have a moment of silence as Air America's rating continue to head south, howling all the way down to the impact crater of its own making.

I have both XM and Sirius Satellite radio feeds. They BOTH have FOXNEWS. If you are a serious college sports fan, Sirius may be the way to go.
