I don't think the people supporting Amendment E appreciated the NPR interview this morning.
Poor Bonnie Russell. She can't catch a break, as it would appear that the NPR interview didn't go as well as she might have hoped:
By and large the rest of media in search of better ratings, decided to favor "shriek journalism" favored by FOX. NPR and Nina Totenberg abandoned all journalistic standards when featuring Amendment E. Instead of interviewing the South Dakota sponsor, NPR interviewed an opponent, who runs a blog he describes as "a bunch of rambling nonsense from a smart aleck Republican" (Believe him, it is). Then NPR interviewed an attorney opposed to Amendment E. But the actual sponsor of Amendment E was not interviewed. Instead, NPR did an out-of-context, cut and paste cuts from earlier interviews and lumped that with a California man (also cut and pasted) not affiliated with Amendent E. At no time were questions posed to Stegmeier himself. Thus, NPR is the latest convert to ethics-free "Journalism."Read all of the crazy talk here at amendmente.com (and then go vote No on E)
It turns out the "watch dog" press abandoned the idea of fair reporting because media is big business. This explains how overnight, NPR became the new FOX. The only losers are the good citizens of South Dakota who are treated to vast amount of "distortion reporting" in place of, facts.
