Travis Tern Sounds like you escaped your information bubble buddy you might want to hop back in before information explodes your brain. If you think NPR is liberal try the Intercept or Chapos Trap House. You should prob just go back to Ben Shapiro to comfort you from the harshness of reality.

this is so disgusting how NPR covers the president granting AG barr power to declassify info related to spying on the Trump campaign. they give plenty of attention to the horrible Democrat position on declassifying and how it is "unamerican" while total neglecting to identify why Republicans and the AG are interested in looking into this.

Travis Tern I wish I could turn off comments so I don't have to see deluded and aggressive comments like these. EDIT: This guy has to be a bot right? There is no mention of Trump being "obsessed" with the investigations.

Ron Siwicki Oh yea...We Dum-A-Craps are so cool we can convince little snowflakes that despite the strong economy the world is horrible. Oh yea keep on believing that as you drive your car (or pay for an Uber with your debit card) to eat dinner out tonight and then go back to your home...then you update Facebook or Twitter on your $500+ phone. Everything is absolutely horrible.

Glad that the pharmaceutical company was found guilty but those doctors had better be prosecuted as well for endangering their clients!

Not even a FEW words about the WORLDWIDE climate chaos protests via Extinction Rebellion and others?! SHAME ON YOU! How you can still refer to yourselves as "public" radio and sleep at night is beyond me. Let's atleast be honest, NPR = National Petroleum Radio.
