No, they're not hard to the left, John. Only a few come from specific positions, and are balanced by others. Remember all of the nonsense we used to get from the MacLaughlin report? (Is that still on? I got sick of his harping.) Well Bill Moyer provided a nice balance, the yin and yang of news opinion. Mostly the positions are open and try to be fair. That's what the right finds threatening--that "fair" part of the coverage.

If a story turned up on the radio it was NPR, not PBS. Or it was one of the several public radio affiliations. They're all connected, but they aren't the same.
