NPR Ignores the People's Budget in their 2012 Budget Coverage :(
I was seriously upset with NPR's 2012 budget coverage this morning. I expect Fox News not to report on the People's Budget (proposed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus) but NPR??? Blah, blah, blah about Rep. Paul Ryan's budget and President Obama's budget (both of which are pretty conservative... actually, Ryan's is radically conservative). But NPR said absolutely nothing about the People's Budget.
You have to read The Nation, the Huffington Post, or the lefty blogs or listen to Democracy Now to even know that a progressive alternative was suggested.
