Okay, maybe the fact that NPR selectively “edits” its stories isn’t “Breaking News.” Where is Ken Tomlinson when you need him?
Brian Unger was surely doing the Lord’s Work (in NPR parlance that means “doing the work for the DNC”) when he highlighted the credentials of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani and former Sen. Fred Thompson. You can hear the story here.
Unger attempted to belittle Thompson’s record by simply ignoring much of Thompson’s record as a prosecutor and attorney, to wit, his takedown of a Tennessee Governor after he revealed a cash for pardons scandal inside the statehouse. That scandal was eventually made into a movie, which led to Thompson’s first role - playing himself.
We don’t know that Fred Thompson is running. But we have an opportunity to force NPR to get its story straight — and keep it straight in the future. Email NPR and force it to correct the record. Hold them accountable.
The links for Unger’s email is here.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
