This is part of why we’re so annoyed about the liberal news media. (Listen up, those of you who still don’t believe there is such a thing—I know you’re out there.) This one isn’t just a little biased; this is either gross incompetence (difficult for NPR to plead—they’re not idiots, and they can do very good journalism when they want to) or infuriating, brazen dishonesty in the service of an agenda.
