Du'O: NPR goes rogue on SSDI

NPR goes rogue | Power Line: "Reader EC advises:
We interrupt this forum for a special bulletin: *****NPR HAS GONE ROGUE***** They just broadcast an hour-long episode of “This American Life,” which was a devastating critique of the disability program. Devastating. They called it the new default welfare program, pointing out that it costs the taxpayers vastly more than all other welfare programs put together. They went on and on and on and on and on about the utterly corrupt and dysfunctional character of the whole program and its explosive growth. Podcast version available Sunday at 7 p.m. Central Time here (Program 490: Trends with Benefits)."
And no doubt Barry's comments to NPR will be in the mold of the words of our own corrupt Governor of Colorado that they will "lose [their] access for asking questions like that".
