Pot Meet Kettle

Wow. I almost have no words. NPR pressures its reporter, Mara Liasson, to stop appearing on the "biased" Fox network. Way to be all independent of government rhetoric NPR and hey it's not like you aren't lefty biased news organization, oh wait you are. Why does it matter to NPR what other networks their reporters report? Completely inappropriate:
NPR’s focus on Liasson’s work as a commentator on Fox’s “Special Report” and “Fox News Sunday” came at about the same time as a White House campaign launched in September to delegitimize the network by painting it as an extension of the Republican Party.

One source said the White House’s criticism of Fox was raised during the discussions with Liasson. However, an NPR spokeswoman told POLITICO that the Obama administration’s attempts to discourage other news outlets from treating Fox as a peer had no impact on any internal discussions at NPR.

I love the timing, had absolutely nothing to do with the White House. Pure coincidence. /sarcasm
