NPR found wanting in diversity study – Says FAIR

FAIR,  Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting  has written a scathing report on NPR radio’s lack of diversity.

They were most concerned with politics.  My concern is the arts. I find all things are not considered.  Matter of fact very little is considered:  none of the new musicians of postism music, none of the artists of stuckism, no zinesters, no filmmakers from youtube, etc.  The corporate stuff is praised without reserve, the indy arts are marginalized.  Note that all the book and music reviews on NPR are positive – this is not journalism, this is promotion.
Had FAIR included the arts, they would have found even more problems.
