They have always had programming that appealed more to certain ideologies/lifestyles, but now they are blatantly politically bias. It shows in both what they report and what they don't. They indulge in the same spin and distortion as entities like CNN, MSNBC, etc.
There is no justification for forcing the targets of their prejudice to pay for it. Political division in this country is creating real, tangible harm to people, and it is inexcusable to use those people's pay checks against their own interests.
Reason there is an obvious bias on their part which does not reflect the views of many Americans. They have plenty of private support as well as now being a firmly established media. I feel personally affronted that my tax dollars are used by them and in my view are bent on changing society toward a world view that is anti america
It's not right to take my hard-earned taxpayer dollars to pay for other’s enjoyment and biased "reporting". If NPR can't survive on donations/subscriptions or the addition of advertising revenue, then NPR should close, and sell their assets to someone that can use them and generate a profit. If NPR is so wonderful let those who love it, pay for it.

NPR has some really good components. Some of their programs are engaging and really get you thinking. However, as someone who doesn't affiliate with a political party, NPR's bias (especially when they report the"news") toward the democratic candidates and their policies is highly disappointing. I've heard many of my democrat friends claim "NPR is just speaking the truth since democrats are right and republicans are wrong", which I think is preposterous. When I hear things like that, it reminds of me of when christians claim they know the truth and unbelievers don't.. NPR's reporting of hillary clinton is pathetic. She is a narcissistic liar and egotist just like trump and she is no better than trump. But somehow someway they make her look like an angel in spite of all the dirt on her. Due to this, it makes me angry that NPR get government money to lift democrats and push down republicans. Pass a bill to remove their funding once and for all.
What, What don't tell me... NPR is a liberal mouth piece.. Saturday Nov. 7 th 2015 .. Republicans "whining" about moderators questions.. Where they not liberally tilted? Yes, they were and you know it but NPR wouldn't acknowledge it. Attacking Ronald Reagan on tearing down of the "wall".. How as an American can you say such things? The guise of humor never seems to creep on the liberal democratic side .. Why? Because NPR is a liberal organization that needs to stand on it's own or FAIL!
We shouldn't be forced to support biased organizations. Period. If NPR's ONLY broadcasts were Car Talk, Mr. Rogers, Nature, The Joy of Painting, and other non-partisan, educational and entertainment programs it could be justified. However, it is just plain criminal to force people to pay for programming they do not agree with politically.
NPR has become a biased source of information. No longer credible. It clearly serves liberal and progressive ideology, excluding many important facts in their reporting. There is no good reason to fund this media outlet with taxpayer funded dollars. NPR should rely on its listeners to fund it's reporting as a responsible biased outlet should.
I really enjoy listening to some NPR programs such as "Car Talk" and "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," but I must attest to the fact that NPR does indeed have a strong liberal bias. For this reason, they should not receive tax payer funding. It isn't fair to force those who do not wish to suppot this left wing rhetoric to do so.
It is not right to use tax dollars to support anything that is so obviously one sided and bias. It has gotten to the point were I don't agree with a single word coming from this garbage dump of a station. Liberal and progessive programing has taken over the television be because they figured out a long time that if you control the way people get their news then you control the arguement. It doesn't matter what the truth is because the left can't win any argument using the truth. They have use emotion rasicism and made up facts to scare the undereducated into thinking their right. Stop the progressive attempt to turn this great country into France! Stop public funding of NPR and PBS.
NPR is a valuable public resource and it should not be cut. The amount of funding that it takes is a tiny percentage of so-called sacred cows like defense spending, or, for that matter, Obamacare, so why not look at some of these massive programs rather than trying to slash something comparatively tiny like NPR?
NPR is a national treasure, just like PBS. Radio shows are a dying art with so much stuff on the Internet. NPR is one organization that continually delivers compelling stories and newsworthy topics. In a sea of "Justin Bieber Picks His Butt" journalism, NPR needs to stick around as long as possible.
NPR is a valuable resource to citizens and needs to be funded. It keeps the idea and concept of free information for everyone alive. You should not have to pay for these services and NPR ensures people don't have to. Additionally, there many other things the government should consider cutting funding for first, before NPR.
