Network pounces on top editor for exposing super-woke bias

A top news editor who blasted National Public Radio for its leftist ideology, which taxpayers are forced to support, has been punished with a 5-day suspension for revealing the woke foundational problems of the organization.

The New York Post documents that NPR, which takes money from all American taxpayers but then spews out the leftist ideology it chooses, has suspended Uri Berliner.

He's the senior editor who recently published an essay that described how the tax-funded NPR has "lost America's trust" by reporting news from a leftist bias.

David Folkenflik, a media writer for NPR, revealed Berliner was suspended starting on Friday for five days without pay.

The report said Folkenflik reviewed a copy of the letter from NPR brass and confirmed the company told the editor he had failed to secure its approval for outside work for other news outlets — a requirement for NPR journalists.

"NPR called the letter a 'final warning,' saying Berliner would be fired if he violated NPR's policy again," the Post reported.

Berliner is a Peabody Award-winning journalist who has 25 years of tenure with NPR.

But he cited NPR's "blind spots" regarding major issues such as the origins of COVID-19, the war in Gaza, the Biden family scandal around the laptop computer abandoned by Hunter Biden, and more.

Many of his colleagues were outraged that he made the disclosures on Free Press.

The fallout from the disclosures was predictable, with many, including President Donald Trump, insisting that taxes no longer be delivered to NPR for its one-sided reporting.

NPR chief executive Katherine Maher complained that Berliner's accusations were "demeaning."

Problematic, though, is the fact, the Post reported, that Maher has her own record of bias, such as the biased, "Donald Trump is a racist" claim that she made on social media.

She also has complained about "white silence."

The Daily Caller News Foundation explained that Berliner also charged that NPR was working to take down President Trump during his presidency by repeating the false claims of "Russia collusion."
