The Savannah River is so polluted that most people who live in a large sector in Savannah and around Savannah live on bottled water, water gotten once a month at a person’s favorite spring! No one should swallow one drop of that water!

Hello,

Is anyone there? Do you have any reporters on staff? You must know that airing a news release from the US government is printing the concerns of a select few corrupt, career politicians whose main job seems to be looking after the welfare of their big business men buddies.

Covid Vaccine: The press in this country is owned by an oligarchy of the few. They sow the wind, Let them reap the whirlwind. Never in the history of humanity have so many people been victimized by the robber barons of Big-Pharm. You are about to discover just what the oligarchy sold you with their covid vaccine. Stop – Think – Ask – Change! But this time, change the right things. The robber barons have always been there. They will always be there. They have plenty of Senators, Congressman, and Judges to hide under. This time fix the yes-men who peddle enthusiastic rubbish. Fix the media! From journalism 101: In those countries where the newspapers are full good news — good men are in jail. In those countries where the newspapers are full of bad news — bad men are in jail. Fix the oligarchy! New Federal law: No individual or corporation in the USA who claims to gather or report the news may own, or be owned by, any other corporate identity. It is the intent of the law that no man can serve two masters. --Ed D****r, Kalispell MTht corridor between the oligarch, NPR, and the public you have be commissioned to protect.

I watched the interview with Judy Woodruff tonight on 60 minutes. I found it interesting. However, having had a bout with thyroid cancer years ago myself, I was concerned about the knot on her neck. Please have her check it out with her Dr. Hopefully, it is nothing to be concerned about.

WHAT IS THE REAL HUMAN POPULATION on EARTH? WHEN WILL PBS EVER DO A DOCUMENTARY on this guy. You could put it on late at night.

Maryland
Feedback:

FROM CONTACT REPORT 825 ------- AT futureofmankind.co.uk

The whole nature of the planet is being destroyed by the machinations of overpopulation, which is growing ever larger – it is mendaciously claimed scientifically that there are currently around 8 billion, whereas there are already more than 9.2 billion.

This, while the Earth at its peak was designed to support a total population of no more than 2 billion. But the human beings of the Earth have proliferated in terms of their billionfold offspring and have multiplied to such an extent that they have become a threat to the continued existence of the whole planet as well as to the whole of nature and its fauna and flora.

As a result, the extinction of many life-forms has increased in number, so that now every year more than 1,000 genera and species of plants, animals, creatures, snakes, amphibians, fish, birds, bees, butterflies, beetles, ants, termites, wasps, hornets and all kinds of other thousand-fold life-forms disappear from the entire surface of the earth, from the waters and mountains, from the skies and from the soil, and are thus eradicated. In principle, demonstrations against environmental pollution and against environmental destruction as well as against climate change and global warming etc. are of no use, because in reality and unstoppably the huge mass of humanity resp. overpopulation continues to grow uncontrolled, whereby the pollution and destruction of the planet, of nature as well as its fauna and flora is rampant and can --PTAAH

Public Radio Listeners & Staff Creating New Sports For Uninterrupted Play During Pandemics Like Covid-19

New Hampshire
Feedback:

With one report of the average weekly listeners being over 19 million, why not create a program for listeners to solve the global challenge of playing sports uninterrupted during pandemics like Covid-19 to help the world with emotional, physical, and economic wellbeing? It can be done. Do an internet search for: "New Gender-Neutral Sports That Keep Players Separate." These New sports should 1. Keep players separate at least 6 feet. 2. Have no head or hand contact with shared equipment. 3. Be adaptable for those with a disability. Consider that two schools in Massachusetts had a recent teachers' strike keeping home over 13,000 students. If each student worked just one hour on creating a new sport, that would have been over 1 year project time in just one day. If only 100,000 Public Radio Listeners and Staff out of the more than 19 million worked on creating new sports, that would be over 11 years of project time in just one day. Society missed the opportunity to create these new sports during the 1918 Spanish Flu and the 2005 Bird Flu. Then in 2020, Covid-19 showed the world why these new sports are needed to allow society to be together in physical activity while maintaining social distance. It can be done. The hope is that society will create these new sports and or modify current sports before the next pandemics like Covid-19.

Morning Edition

Ohio
Feedback:

You know, some of my friends get angry at NPR’s quotidian promotion of left-wing narratives without pushback or skepticism, such as this morning’s piece on crime by far-left activist Sandhya Dirks. But I, on the contrary, believe that NPR helps the Right. NPR is almost a caricature of a certain type of urban leftist with a big megaphone. Voters and consumers may be as dumb as Dirks and the like implicitly believe, but they know when they are being condescended to, so keep up the segments telling them that issues of violent crime, inflation, illegal immigration, a general public anomie, etc., are the result of their gullibility and imagination, and ‘racist’ as well. In large parts of this country, now, such products of the legacy media help turn swing voters, such as those fabled ‘suburban wimen’, toward pulling the lever for the GOP.

I think Don Henley can be the next vice president of the United States of America. Don has experience as an elected official and is a veteran of the army special services in the Americas.

To: Patricia de Stacy Harrison Board Officers CPB

Enough! NPR’s political bias is so skewed, it has become intolerable.

There is a well known ‘game’ in politics called, “Lets play Democrats and Republican.”

My older brother just died at 83. At no time in his entire, adult life did he ever vote for a candidate, although he dutifully voted in every election. He signed over, carte-blanche, his entire voting rights to the Republican Party at twenty one and never looked back.

If the powers that be can get everyone playing the ‘game’, they can hide a tone of unqualified, corrupt, and special-interest candidates from prying eyes.

And your stations are right in there with the best of them playing the ‘game’.

Enough already! You are suppose to be autonomous and free to point out the corrupt practices of the political parties, not digging-in to help them.
