NPR Today at 11am

Post  gatsu7 on Wed Feb 01, 2012 7:40 am

Listen to NPR (not something I would normally recommend) today from 11 to noon. USARK vs. HSUS. I expect the liberal host to favor HSUS, but we'll see. USARK says "This is a discussion, not a debate". Yeah right.

Well, I'm not really surprized. Here is what happened:

Guests were Andrew from USARK, Wayne from HSUS, and Suzanna from REXANO and the show was hosted by some lady from USA Today on NPR network.
All questions were aimed at USARK and REXANO with HSUS and NPR doing most of the talking.
Every pre-screened caller supported HSUS, and every email read on the air did as well, despite the host admitting that "thereis a lot of disagreement on these issues based on the emails and phone calls we received".
Every attempt by Andrew to make valid points, backed up by statistics and science, was met with either outright lies or subject changes by Wayne. At one point, the discussion was about snakes, and Wayne jumped straight to chimp attacks to justify his point. That was just one of many "apples to oranges" comparisons.
Suzanna spoke with broken English and seemed to support no regulation on things like tigers and bears. Including all of these animals in the "discussion" was completely inappropriate.
The most blatant example of NPR bias was when Wayne was allowed to speculate on USARK's finances, with no proof, but when Andrew brought up how much HSUS spends on animal welfare as opposed to animal rights legislation, with numbers from a study to back him up, he was stopped by the host and told that "HSUS finances are not what the show is about".

Andrew did as well as could have been expected, considering the fact that the whole "discussion"was was actually a liberal ambush by NPR and HSUS.

Who wants laws and proposed legislation based on legitimate science and reason? That would completely contradict most of our current legal system. clown

I hate to hear that it went as expected. I wasn't able to listen.
