While NPR made a significant mistake that dinged its credibility, it should be commended for quickly apologizing and being transparent. Rather than hurting NPR’s credibility, taking responsibility for the mistake should enhance it.

Fox News Chief Roger Ailes Blasts National Public Radio Brass as ‘Nazis’ - The Daily Beast
“They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda. They are basically Air America with government funding to keep them alive.”

Fresh Air too fresh for some, 2010
“Most of the comments I’ve received have to do with the salaciousness of Ms. Gross. She talks a lot about sexual issues and the language she uses — a lot of people of Mississippi are not accustomed to hearing. They’re not accustomed to hearing word ‘orgasm’ on the air, and three o’clock in the afternoon is not the best time to air this.”

Ezra Klein - What makes NPR (and the Economist) so special?
my grand theory of the media right now is that the rise of online media made newsgathering an extremely crowded and quick marketplace. That's left a lot of publications that either aren't used to the competition (think newspapers) or aren't suited to the pace (think newsweeklies) a bit confused about their identity.

New York's Hipsters Too Cool For The Census : NPR
Many New York City residents aren't returning their census forms. The return rate is only around 50 percent, but the lowest rate of return (around 30 percent) is the hipster enclave of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These young, recent graduates with ironic mustaches and plaid shirts are apparently too busy tweeting to fill out a simple census form.

WASP: Women With Wings In WWII : NPR
About 1,100 young women flew military aircraft stateside during World War II as part of a program called Women Airforce Service Pilots — WASP for short.

So finally, after years of Fresh Air sign-off ambitions, we came up with a system for creating our own NPR Names. Here’s how it works: You take your middle initial and insert it somewhere into your first name. Then you add on the smallest foreign town you’ve ever visited... Guess that makes me Tyscone Tamarindo?

NPR CEO Vivian Schiller: ‘A crisis we will not waste’ | CyberJournalist.net
“This is a crisis we will not waste. The answer for us is not to retrench and just go back to what we do best, but to regroup, we have to innovate, we have to push, we have to take risks, we have to accept that it’s OK to fail on certain efforts. This is one of those moments where people are tested. And the news industry is being tested… It’s scary, it’s risky, the revenue models are unsure. But we have no choice.”
