Dogged Extermination

South Dakota governor Kristi Noem’s new book is about to hit the stands. In the book she details the saga of Cricket the dog. Cricket misbehaved and was a danger to children. So Kristi shot Cricket. This didn’t sit well with many in the media and politics.

From the WSJ April 25, 2024 – In an essay earlier this month on the news site the Free Press, NPR editor Uri Berliner said the public radio network had lost its way by letting liberal bias skew its coverage. NPR erred on big stories including the origins of Covid-19, Hunter Biden’s laptop and the Israel-Hamas conflict, he wrote. Berliner was suspended last week and subsequently resigned.

I used to listen to NPR. I really liked Car Talk, All Things Considered and Terry Gross on Fresh Air. But over the years it’s become a little too smug. Or maybe I used to be a lot more smug and didn’t notice.

Go, O.J., Go!
