NPR is refusing to tweet anymore after Elon Musk labeled it "government-funded media"
· Apr 12, 2023 ·

NPR has been really mad ever since Elon Musk decided that the outlet should be labeled as "state-affiliated media" on Twitter since, you know, they take money from the government and are openly biased towards the deep state Democrats.

And in order to show that Elon Musk is just a big meany-head and that NPR has serious journalists, the head of NPR has decided to give Elon Musk and Twitter the silent treatment.

The very mature and serious NPR has decided they won't play with Elon anymore unless he does what they say to do!

Elon already somewhat conceded to NPR by changing the label from "state-affiliated" to the also-accurate and harder-to-dispute "government-funded."

But NPR doesn't want to play that game. They're serious and unbiased journalists and if Space Man Bad doesn't remove that label they just won't participate in Twitter anymore!

"NPR's organizational accounts will no longer be active on Twitter because the platform is taking actions that undermine our credibility by falsely implying that we are not editorially independent," Isabel Lara, NPR's chief communications officer, said in a statement.

"We are not putting our journalism on platforms that have demonstrated an interest in undermining our credibility and the public's understanding of our editorial independence," she added.

Umm, I don't think that Musk is "undermining" NPR's credibility.

I'm pretty sure they do that themselves every single day.

In a letter to staff Wednesday morning, John Lansing, NPR's chief executive, wrote, "Actions by Twitter or other social media companies to tarnish the independence of any public media institution are exceptionally harmful and set a dangerous precedent."

"A dangerous precedent" ROFL!

I'm sorry, this is just too ridiculous. Fake news that preaches the message of the Left exclusively is super mad that they're getting called out for their bias. That's all this is.

They're being exposed and can't stand it.
