I was listening to Lee Elder yesterday when a lawyer came on where everyone was jumping all over the students at UC Davis stating they should have all been arrested and the officers were warranted in what they did, then he replied by giving Elder this bit of infomation that Elder was starting to get extremely hostile toward the lawyer:

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
