Then research the history of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the Voice of America, Radio and Television Marti, etc. You will be reassured that Lansing's July testimony was his job interview to head National Propaganda Radio.

Then sit back, relax, and tune into NPR's Morning Edition. It will be comforting to know that it is "Morning in America" once again.

John Lansing is there to polish the propaganda that has been the mainstay of NPR for over a decade. Calling this era of full spectrum disinformation the "information Age" is in itself propaganda.

One Drop of Corporate influence into PUBLIC radio renders it polluted...and untrustworthy. Can't be Partly Public any more than one can be Partly Pregnant.

Many interpret "NPR" as "National Petroleum Radio".

Better media choices are Democracy Now, and RT.

I rather doubt that Russia Today can be free of propaganda. The only possible antidote to being thoroughly misinformed that I've found is trying to read articles across the political spectrum. So I read Op-ed News and Rebel Media as well as more centrist sources such as Postmedia (in Canada) and Spectator (in the U.K.) -- and try to do my own fact-checking. None of this guarantees an accurate view, of course, but I don't see a better alternative. I've learned to be skeptical of Canada's taxpayer-funded national broadcaster on any topic that can be politicized, which has become very disappointing.

Any "news" organization with big corporate ties is nothing but a gate keeper for the empire. Even Democracy Now has succumbed due to big foundation money. Very sad.
