An answer to why NPR is so liberal

It's pretty easy actually. Despite being called "National" NPR is really driven by its member stations, that serve as community radio. Over the past forty or so years conservatives have showed zero interest in getting involved with community radio, thereby making community radio the province of the people who actually cared about it and wanted to do stuff with it. Fast forward down the line and you have the appearance that something that's supposedly "National" as in sponsored by the Federal Government is really liberal, and that the Federal Government is actually subsidizing liberalism! The truth is that if conservatives would have gotten off their dead asses and become involved with NPR member stations they could have had an influence.
