Publicly funded National Public Radio has announced that it will be closing its comments sections in a bid to “move the conversation to social media,” following the lead of many left-wing news sites in doing so.In a blog post by NPR public editor Elizabeth Jensen, she said that although the decision is “sure to upset a loyal core of its audience,” the company would now prefer to “let social media pick up the slack.” Scott Montgomery, the managing editor for NPR digital news cited the reason for the move as the company’s need to engage more in social media, saying that NPR has “reached the point where we’ve realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism.” Looks like the "P" in NPR sounds more like private than public doesn't it? Obviously NPR is mostly a leftist Liberal news company, so it wasn't really a surprise that they would trash the first amendment. To think that most of it's listeners is what makes National Public Radio survive for the most part besides Federal grants, you should think that NPR is about to loose a lot of it's followers after cancelling free speech on their website...For which listeners pay the news group to fund. After this move you could almost guarantee that NPR just like CNN is in bed with the Clinton campaign, for they now support the same thing in cancelling out free speech. NPR now stands for Non Public Radio.
