Breitbart News reported on Thursday that Republican Conference chair Elise Stefanik (NY) slammed a “sexist” taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate for lying to readers about the Hunter Biden laptop story and the Justice Department’s treatment of parents concerned about Critical Race Theory (CRT).
NCPR, a taxpayer-funded public radio station serving northern New York, was condemned by Stefanik after the affiliate’s Emily Russell published an article Wednesday claiming the congresswoman inaccurately suggested the administrative state is weaponized against taxpayers and unaccountable to voters.
Russell’s article was in response to Stefanik’s speech on Saturday in which the congresswoman roasted the Biden administration as “corrupt.” Stefanik is a member of the House “Weaponization” subcommittee that seeks to hold the DOJ and FBI accountable for their political weaponization against the American people.
“We have exposed the corrupt and complicit mainstream media,” Stefanik said Saturday. “America is seeing Joe Biden’s corrupt DOJ and FBI fully weaponized as they label parents domestic terrorists.”
A senior adviser to Stefanik, Alex DeGrasse, ripped Russell and her outlet for perpetrating “sexist” attacks on the congresswoman while “lying” to its readers.
“Taxpayer-funded disinformation outlet NCPR caught unlawfully sending emails supporting Democrat candidates continues their strange, sexist obsession with lying about Elise Stefanik,” DeGrasse told Breitbart News. “It’s more concerning that they are actively lying to NY-21 readers about the Hunter Biden laptop story and the DOJ wrongfully targeting parents as domestic terrorists.”
“We need to defund NCPR, and we will,” DeGrasse added.
