Donald Trump Threatens To ‘End’ Media Channel

Former President Donald Trump recently called for NPR to no longer be funded by the public. This comes after an insider called out the organization for its lopsided liberal biases, including against the former president via Fox News.



In a bombshell essay published in The Free Press, veteran NPR senior business editor Uri Berliner stated that the 2016 election of Trump encouraged NPR journalists to find ways to “damage or topple” his presidency, stating that the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the White House “became the catnip that drove reporting” and that “we hitched our wagon to Trump’s most visible antagonist, Representative Adam Schiff.”

Trump responded to the revelation by posting on his Truth Social platform, appearing to specifically paraphrase Berliner’s claims about NPR journalists aiming to “damage” his presidency, “NO MORE FUNDING FOR NPR, A TOTAL SCAM! EDITOR SAID THEY HAVE NO REPUBLICANS, AND IS ONLY USED TO ‘DAMAGE TRUMP.’ THEY ARE A LIBERAL DISINFORMATION MACHINE. NOT ONE DOLLAR!!!”

In the original piece, Berliner claimed that Trump’s ascension to the presidency caused a stark change at NPR.

“Like many unfortunate things, the rise of advocacy took off with Donald Trump. As in many newsrooms, his election in 2016 was greeted at NPR with a mixture of disbelief, anger, and despair. (Just to note, I eagerly voted against Trump twice but felt we were obliged to cover him fairly.),” he wrote. “But what began as tough, straightforward coverage of a belligerent, truth-impaired president veered toward efforts to damage or topple Trump’s presidency.”

It is noted that he also claimed that NPR eagerly repeated claims about Trump allegedly colluding with Russia until the Mueller investigation concluded the evidence was insufficient, and noted the repeated interviews it did with Schiff, who pushed the Russia collusion narrative for years.
