Letter to the Editor: Taxpayers shouldn’t be subsidizing censorship

The NPR fiasco was really a wake up call to me. I hadn’t realized that public program was really censored reporting.

The Grasshopper Soup article in your Oct. 27 edition was spot on, for not only free speech, but also how political correctness has gotten out of hand to the point where most any comment can be contested, as Juan Williams so bluntly found out.

NPR, you might not miss me, but I have a feeling I won’t be the only one taking you off the presets on my radio, and this letter is going to my congressional leaders also.

Taxpayers shouldn’t be subsidizing censorship.
