NPR...since when did approval of the Tea Party become a litmus test for bias?

Because the last time I checked many people thought that the Tea Party was an extremist and marginal movement. Perhaps NPR should give equal time to the Communist Party as well? The Tea Party isn't on the same level of either mainstream Republican or Democratic politics, even Democratic/ Progressive politics. To act like disrespecting them is like disrespecting a mainstream position is insulting, because they believe in outright extremist positions.

I suppose this site belongs to an extremist position as well, but if we're talking about linking government funding more directly to bias or lack thereof I wouldn't suggest that a government funded station was being unduly biased by overlooking anarchism and radical socialism.
