I recently Listened to an NPR story on Obama care. It was really interesting. I really love the amount of detail NPR puts into their reports. They talked about how the healthcare website was put out before it was actually finished. I think they did a great job of explaining why.

The piece went on to explain how projects like this get funded, why this happened, and how it can be fixed. I really felt like i could talk about the subject to others and listened to a reliable source. Later they even read out criticisms of the piece.

I have found that NPR and 89.9 tend to have the most reliable stories and the most neutral position. unlike other news stations they do a great job of telling it how it is and also raising awareness to situations that many people might not be aware off. The stores they play are always interesting and informative. I have never been disappointed.

I really love 89.9!

I agree. I appreciate the news coverage from NPR's sources. But, like all news sources, you do have your talk hosts that favor one party or another - one view or another. As you mentioned, they even read letters that criticized - what about letters that praised? Were those read?

But yes, overall, NPR does expose you to some interesting ways to view issues as well as open up your mind to various realms of entertainment available in the community. We went to a play last night that was reviewed on NPR and we loved it. I would not have heard about it from any other station - so thanks NPR for your open and broad coverage of not only news, but arts and entertainment as well.
