Better late than never

Better late than never. National Public Radio has issued a correction and apology for slandering the Traditional Values Coalition. In January 2002, NPR’s Morning Edition reported that it had called the Coalition to ask whether the Coalition had been contacted by the FBI agents investigating the mailing of anthrax to Senate offices. NPR now admits:
“This report violated NPR editorial principles. No one had told our reporter that the Traditional Values Coalition was a suspect in the anthrax mailing. No facts were available then or since then to suggest that the group had any role in the anthrax mailing.”
In other words, the NPR broadcast was motivated by sheer malice, based on political disagreement. If NPR’s reporters are willing to perpetrate this kind of hoax, one can only imagine how their liberal bias infects their day to day reporting.
