It was pledge week on the radio recently, and as I hadn’t heard Cokie Roberts on the radio recently, I wondered if my preconditions for resuming my donations to NPR might have been met.
My conditions were simple: No money to NPR so long as they employ Juan Williams and Cokie Roberts. Williams is (famously) history, and Roberts no longer seemed to blight my morning radio. Is it safe to donate? Apparently, not.
