    The rant includes the assertion that Perdue used a racial slur: he said that the"election was cotton pickin' important". I can't begin to fathom either event. What ever happened to objective journalism?
    At least somebody that is woke could explain the slur to me. Bet my Dad would like to know if he was living. He actually chopped cotton and saved money for three years so he could go to college and not have to do that.
    P. S. I assume that this is not merely an ignorance of history problem. Picking cotton has been important.

    I loved driving I75 and seeing the fields N of Valdosta. We actually had some nice fields about 5 yrs ago near us.

          Anything that had to do the South and slavery is now being called racist .
          Here an example from 2017 at a Christian college.

            That's just crazy. I just passed cotton fieldd Friday. They belong and are cared for by all races. California wants to separate. Maybe we could just divide the country up saving a small piece of ground for the few remaining sane people.

              NPR hasn't been anything close to objective since I've been alive. They were always Union Propaganda Radio.

              Luckily their listenership can't actually be measured with anything short of an electron microscope.

                Law, I have listened and watched for decades. Up until Trump they tried to be fair. Oh it was painful to watch, like a clumsy male teenager trying to say something clever to a girl way out of his league. But they tried. Trump proved difficult for them, but tonight was ridiculous. It was like vicious negative advertising. Of course their viewers were going to vote against Trump anyway, but this was a travesty.

                  No. Formerly, they would scrupulously try to have a pro and a con. The conservative side would be weakly represented and the liberal articulately and forcefully. Fox frequently does the exact opposite with a strong conservative and a weak liberal. The News Hour, after Tump's election had Brooks and Shields. Brooks was a moderate, globalist Republican, so Trump''s position was never articulated in those discussions, but there was the pro forma representation of two sides.
                  Tonight was, imo, a straight out diatribe.

                    Fox has always had that gay guy from M'sippi, Susan Estrogen, Alan Combes, that drunk that ran carter's campaign (on the Five) and Juan Williams. All libs and several given shows.

                    NPR hasnt had a single conservative in at least sixty years.

                    I’d agree. Once Trump got elected they went full retard. I stopped supporting and think they should lose all their direct and indirect public funding, which historically I have been against. They are a joke of a journalist enterprise now. It is sad really.

                        I thought Combes was the weak liberal that Fox used as a punching bag ???
