'NPR is a far cry from being independent to serve the public ever since its major funding source, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has opened their money trough to corporate and foundation donors.
Finding who those corporate donors are is beyond a challenge, as all NPR and CPB websites offer is boiler plate jargon explaining how they’re so discerning about conflicts of interest. NPR does have a pie to share though.
But among major private and foundation donors listed by CPB, two stand out for me: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. Ya think maybe they have some influence on GMOs and vaccines reporting?'
