Majority of one …

… Pop Goes the Culture | The Weekly Standard. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Imagine NPR as it once was, from its founding in the early seventies into the early eighties, when the fateful decision was made to transform an eclectic and discursive ragbag of cultural programming into the fabulously wealthy, grimly professional all-news-almost-all-the-time media colossus we know today. Myers worked at NPR off and on for nearly a decade, spending several years as arts editor for Morning Edition before layoffs from the new regime gutted arts coverage in 1983.

Which is bad enough, except that we the taxpayers still have to pay for it. I sure in hell don't listen to it.
