NPR To The Left To The Left?

Mar 24, 2011

NPR is under attack over funding, fundraising and claims of bias.  So what does the network’s Ombudsman think?

We have Alicia Shepard, NPR’s Ombudsman on Where We Live regularly to talk about journalism, and the job that NPR reporters and editors do. 

She’s leaving the network, just as NPR has become a national issue on Fox News and the butt of jokes on The Daily Show. 

So, what do you think?  Does NPR have a bias?  Should it change the way it reports the news?  Or, as Jon Stewart, Ira Glass and others have suggested, should it take a stronger stand against critics?

We’ll pull apart the latest controversies at the network, and give you a chance to ask questions of Alicia Shepard.
