Thanks to Michael King for the NPR/Iran article [“Point Austin: Another War for Sale
,” News, Aug. 28]. I have listened to NPR news for many years and have progressively become disgusted with it. It is a willing enabler of our government's worst policies and actions. NPR news is just a bit more subtle than other media outlets. In the months leading up to the war in Iraq, it added a military drumbeat behind its all-too-familiar theme music. It was as if all its listeners should be getting psyched up for what was about to happen.
When I have donated money to KUT, I've always been asked what I like and dislike about the station. I say, "You know, I really cannot stand NPR news." The usual response is, "Really?!"
