Maria Hinojosa: Public Media 'Bends Over Backward' Not to Appear 'Too Progressive'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/02/2018 3:44:24 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Turns out that what we see and hear on NPR, PBS, etc. is an intentionally toned-down version of just how liberal they really are. Makes you wonder what they'd be like if they let their true progressive flags fly: a live feed of Cuban government TV, with occasional features from Venezuelan Public Broadcasting?

On MSNBC's AM Joy today, Maria Hinojosa said:

"The government supports the Corporation for Public Broadcasting that supports public media, which is independent. Although oftentimes kind of bends over backward to show that they're not too progressive, precisely because they don't want to be caught on that charge."

Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

So NPR, PBS, etc. lean over backwards not to be too liberal because they don’t want to get “caught.”

You could have fooled me: what would it look like if they let their liberal flags fly?

Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

No. But the characterization would explain why I always feel like I’m looking at an ass when these Lefty Loons try to act rational and sane.

Something pretty close to the flag of North Korea.

All things considered - Democrat, Green, and Communist Party viewpoints on the issues of the day.

I’ll give PBS a lot of credit for the “Create” network. It really is a gem.

The Ministry of Propaganda does try to appear like they are not biased.

They fail miserably.

Seems more like they’re bending over forward for their overlords.

GASP!
