I love listening to NPR. I listen to them more than I listen to regular radio. Last week, in the midst of the Obama-Pastor Wright drama, there was a great discussion on with a journalist, a historian, a reverend and my favorite politico out there, Donna Brazile. They talked about the pastors comments, they talked about the “race speech”, racial differences in America and just had a very good discussion.

Even tonite, on my way home from school, there was a discussion on the media and how John McCain is portrayed. They had journalists and callers who had great opinions from various perspectives. All poignant and thought provoking.

The main thing about NPR that i like so much, is the fact that they have no agendas, everything is non partisan. They talk about world issues, local issues, culture, art, music, the environment. I guess I’m just over CNN and all these media outlets trying to tell people what and how to think. There is so much more happening in the world and the country that is just ignored. Well, we just started pulmonology so i gotta get to bed.
