More NPR.

Because of all the noise that Fox News makes and the subsequent attention it receives, it is useful to now and again remember that, in the grand scheme of things, it is merely the loudest voice in a very small corner of the communications world. Here's a bit of perspective of that network's reach vs. the evil NPR which has become its latest straw man villain...
Keep in mind, O'Reilly may pull just over 3 million viewers a show, but Prairie Home Companion bests that by a million. Even Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me has as many listeners as Bill has viewers. Recently, O'Reilly's audience surged to over 4 million following the hissy fit on "The View." That's a regular week for Car Talk, listened to and loved by 4.4 million. Even gratingly twee This American Life (1.7 million) pulls just about the same numbers as Fox News superstar Glenn Beck.
