Let's just follow the money, for a change: PRI, major content provider to NPR, along with PBS, Frontline and The Takeaway show, are owned by the WGBH Educational Foundation out of Boston which, since 2008, is 93% financed by the Koch brothers.
Chicago Public Media is financed by Baird & Warner, the oldest independent real estate firm in the country.
American Public Media, which does that business segment featured on NPR, is owned by Greenspring Company [unclear still as to who financed them originally] since 1987. American Public Media Group is the non-profit HOLDING company, while its subsidiary is Greenspring Company, a reverse ownership scam, not all that uncommon.
Roger Vickers long appeared on PBS as a fellow at CSIS, next Vickers is the most powerful man in the intelligence community, the Undersecretary for Defense Intelligence [the NSA, DIA, NGO, NGA, Defense Clandestine Service, et cetera, reports to him]
Beschloss, long the so-called presidential scholar who appears on PBS, has a wife who was at the World Bank, awarded funds to the Carlyle Group, then joined the Carlyle Group to manage those funds, then started up her own hedge fund - - wonder where her investments came from?
[Just before the 50th anniversary of the murder of President Kennedy, NPR ran this show with a reporter from South Carolina [if I recall correctly], retiring from his column, The Rambler, who claimed to have met a former Navy lady, who served on a rifle range in the 1950s, where she claimed to have observed Lee Oswald practising every week. Absurd, since no one else who knew Lee ever heard of such a thing, and the US military didn't allow women on the rifle ranges back then?!?!?!?!?] Typical NPR misinformation!
