NATO/NPR Leadership

Yesterday on NPR's Morning Edition, in anticipation of the 2019 NATO Summit in London, Noel King interviewed former U.S. Senator (R-TX) and current NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison, who talked up:

  • the necessity of US leadership in NATO
  • the importance of the Kurds/YPG as allies
  • the continuing danger of Russian aggression

while also extolling:

  • Donald Trump's “forceful,” straight-talking leadership

with hardly any pushback from Noel King.

This is the way democracy dies: not with a bang but with hardly a whimper from NPR.
