NPR Quits Twitter After Being Labeled ‘State-Affiliated Media’

April 12, 2023

Taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) announced the decision on Wednesday to quit Twitter after being transparently labeled “state-affiliated media.”

“We are not putting our journalism on platforms that have demonstrated an interest in undermining our credibility and the public’s understanding of our editorial independence,” NPR’s CEO John Lansing said in a statement.

Asked if NPR would ever return to the platform, Lansing replied, “I would need some time to understand whether Twitter can be trusted again. At this point I have lost my faith in the decision-making at Twitter.”

The exit comes after Twitter initially labeled NPR as “U.S. state-affiliated media” in its bio. Lansing slammed the label as “inaccurate” and declared the organization was “disturbed” about the social media platform’s decision to be transparent about the subsidization of NPR.

NPR also published an article in its defense entitled, “Twitter labels NPR’s account as ‘state-affiliated media,’ which is untrue.”

Needless to say, NPR’s umbrage is laughable. Everyone knows it is as woke and leftist as a media outlet could be.
