NPR does not like that.
Not one bit.
Why, The Donald is holding up traffic in the tony resort town.
Trump's Frequent Visits Disrupt Palm Beach Life And Businesses
For the third week in a row, President Trump is spending the weekend in Florida at Mar-a-Lago.
It seems Trump enjoys spending time at the club he owns in Palm Beach, but since the election, his stays there have raised issues not seen when he was a private citizen. They involve security and the impact his visits are having on people and businesses in Palm Beach.Hmm.
Why do I get the feeling that if it were Obama, NPR would be looking for townspeople who are ecstatic with the weekly visits?
Certainly a straight news story would lead with people seeing benefits as well as those seeing a downside of being the weekend White House. While the story eventually (and begrudgingly) has people who say it is a good thing to have, the tone is negative and aimed to please the largely liberal donors to NPR.
But this story that makes me wonder why we have NPR. It's not as if cable news is not overflowing in news channels. In fact, in many parts of the country -- including my home state of West Virginia -- NPR is hard to get.
Sirius XM offers far more choices and a far better range of voices than NPR.
Why as a taxpayer am I paying for nonsense stories aimed at tearing down the president?
The network says it receives no direct federal funding and that government provides only 5% of its budget.
West Virginia faces a half-billion-dollar budget deficit.
Zero out NPR. Let the organization take a 5% hit in its spending instead of making taxpayers dig deeper to keep alive a redundant and leftist network.
