NPR puckers up for a Republican


The media has a love affair with Republicans who oppose the George Bush administration. Do youremember the adulation of the isolationist Chuck Hagel? Here  NPR devotes a report which basically praises John Thune, the new South Dakota Senator who opposed the John Bolton nomination as our Ambassador to the UN in a fit of spite over the bipartisan plan to close an Air Force base in his state.

NPR does two double—flips: they seem to support spending on the military and NPR seemingly offers praise and a megaphone for a Republican. All this to besmirch George Bush and create divisiveness in the Republican Party. I would not say that this type of praise counts in their attempt to shield themselves from criticism regarding thier bias towards liberals.
