NPR has been accepting millions of dollars in "sponsorship" from the fracking front-group known as ANGA. In exchange for their support, NPR hosts like Steve Inskeep, Melissa Block and Audie Cornish routinely read messages that blatantly misrepresent the dangers of fracking to our planet and people.
We've delivered petitions, met with NPR's ombudsman and CEO, and cajoled their staff on Facebook and Twitter. But they have resolutely maintained that there's no connection between these pro-fracking messages and the news coverage. Well there is now: Last week NPR reduced their climate reporting team to one person saying they don't "feel like [the environment] necessarily requires dedicated reporters."
