I do not feel like when I listen to NPR I'm getting all the facts. The tone is so ridiculous these days. Also, who haven't we heard from RFK? Or Trump? I get it, you don't like them, so what! This is public funded. We All deserve to hear it all. When you were on the first cares bill I know you were going to go way way off the mark. Could you please come back to normal, you were the best of the best at once point. Thank you DLM

As a public broadcasting network, you are compelled to maintain a strict nonpartisan and nonpolitical stance in all its activities. Fulfill your charter please.

NPR RFK Jr. Blackout

Oklahoma
Feedback:
RFK JR. Is polling in the double digits nationally yet NPR appears to be solely focused on the two major party candidates. Public broadcasting is supposed to be politically non-biased….

Unfair and biased coverage

Virginia
Feedback:
You have purposely NOT been covering RFKjr. As a presidential candidate. He is polling 10-15% and has a serious chance of getting in the White House. You are supposed to be non-partisan in your coverage. Why not cover RFKjr.? He just named his VP Shanahan. There is a lot to report on the. The silence on this issue is deafening!

Robert F Kennedy, Junior

New York
Feedback:
I am appalled at the lack of coverage of this man’s campaign. He is in the lead with voters under 35 and in swing states in voters under age 49. He is doing well with Hispanics, people who have never voted and extremely well within Independents. Where is the coverage? You’re supposed to be non-partisan? Where is the outrage about his lack of Secret Service protection? Where is the coverage of his vice presidential pic? What is going on here?

Media Blackout

California
Feedback:
I am very concerned about your media blackout of the RFKjr campaign. My belief when I have listened to NPR and contributed in the past is that it would be nonpartisan or political. The RFKjr campaign has been completely ignored in most of it’s reporting on the 2024 election. When it has been mentioned, it has been slandered as “anti-vax” or “conspiracy theorist” with no explanation. This is clearly skewed for political and partisan reasons.

Where is Robert F Kennedy Jr for President Coverage??

Feedback:
Read content here: kennedy24.com 70% of all US voters do not eant a Biden vs. Trump rematch and 52% of US voters are declaring independence from party affiliation. This should be covered by NPR.

The sidelining of Robert Kennedy Jr.

Missouri
Feedback:
I am writing to convey my disappointment at the obvious censuring of the presidential campaign of Robert Kennedy Jr. While CPB is required to maintain a strict nonpartisan and nonpolitical stance in all its activities, it seems odd that NPR continues to ignore the increasing popular campaign of Mr. Kennedy, who, in some states is polling upwards of 25%. This can only be due to a concerted and coordinated effort to censure Mr. Kennedy from your programming. As a longtime listener of NPR, I encourage CPB to stick to its own principles and support the democratic process by covering Mr. Kennedy's campaign.

RKFJr coverage

New York
Feedback:
I’ve been a supporter of NPR for many years and an enthusiastic listener. Your lack of coverage of RFKJr is very upsetting. When you do mention him - every time I’ve heard it mentioned like this “ conspiracy theorist Robert Kennedy”. It’s shameful that you are so blatantly being biased. I will no longer be donating and will encourage others to stop as well. Sadly- Christine Pepe

Nonbiased reporting.

Utah
Feedback:

I am shocked and disappointed CPB has been completely ignoring Robert Kennedy Jr’s presidential campaign. CPB is supposed to unbiased and nonpartisan. Ignoring that this is a three horse race and that Kennedy’s favorability is higher than Biden or Trump. Americans deserve to be informed so that people elect the next president and not the media or corruption in govt. We expect higher standards so that we don’t devolve into a completely govt media controlled state which indicate we have ceased to be a democracy and instead have become an autocracy. Please protect the Constitution and give fair and balanced coverage to all candidates.

PBS Passport

Maryland
Feedback:
I recently had a frustrating experience trying to work with CPB based on how the affiliates are structured. I have donated to WHRO/V in Hampton Roads VA for years when I lived there. I appreciated the programing and donating gave me access to PBS shows on Passport. After moving to the DC area I donated to WAMU expecting that to continue. For reasons I still don't fully understand I've since been told that I would have to donate separately to WETA to get passport in this area. I know no one was trying to be misleading. There's no reason WETA/WAMU would know about or share WHRV/WHROs policies, but the different structure left me misled when donating to NPR had very different results in the different regions.
