    It looks like this NPR firearm "authority" has the same debate staying power as "economist" Paul Krugman...

    Pro-tip, delete everything after the & in your links. The way you are pasting it let's us know you are getting these from chain emails.

    "thx, but hoping for something more formal, eg analysis in reliable source w/clear statement of what constitutes a mass shooting"

    OMG these people are stupid. We already knew that but it's mind-boggling to see example after example of it in black and white.

    So you don't think articles that (properly purposefully) present completely demonstrably false information (also known as "lies") "bad"?

    NPR is the psyops section of the Propaganda Corps.

    Terry Gross talked about a Neuroscientist today and the local version of her show interviewed a doctor about a study he did on depression in the workplace. Basically communism.

    No...Krugman, when faced with irrefutable conflicting evidence to his stated position online, simply shut down discussion. Evidently, the same thing is happening here.

    Yep. I heard a piece where Robert Siegel discussed the dirt-poor living conditions and chronically low number of public restrooms in India (why so many men there pee against walls and get fire-hosed for it).

    I found myself declaring the rule of the proletariat to anyone who would listen soon afterward. :dunno:

    I give her"article" no more validity than a blog post. She is wrong and she is using poorly researched articles to support her statement. Click the statement in her article and it links to a CNN article.

    I don't think her one sentence is a big scheme or lie to "cover up" the secret shootings that have occurred on the other side of the world. She probably spent about 10 minutes writing all that and we have now spent way to much time on it. It is the internet after all.

    If you can't make the connection on your own, it isn't worth spelling it out to you.

    I wonder how big the NPR audience actually is.

    No good reason why our hard earned tax dollars should fund NPR and PBS. Government sponsored media is a thing of the past.

    I listen to NPR or NPR podcasts daily and I have for the past probably 5 years. All I've ever gotten off them were good book recommendations and interesting segments. I also listen to right wing talk radio as long as I can stand it in the car and the only takeaway is people who disagree with me = bad people.

    My statement was a direct comparison of the dialectic skills of two leftists who, when confronted with countervailing opinions, simply chose to shut down and/or ignore further discussion.

    I am happy for you that you find NPR so rewarding.
