I hope that NPR reviews these comments. In general, I very much appreciate this brief news update. By far, most of the hosts are clear and unbiased. I have two concerns about Jack Spear. First, I have noticed that when he is reading the news at 3:00 MDT he is fairly clearly spoken, but by the time he gets to 5 o’clock MDT he is often slurring and tripping. I am writing today, Friday, July 24, because in addition, I have sensed a decidedly conservative bias in his choice of language and emphasis. While I may not agree with that bias, he is certainly free to use his language in that way. Today, however, in his introduction to a far superior report out of Portland Oregon, Spear described the circumstances there as being opposed by Democratic leadership. That was entirely unnecessary. Spear has no idea whether all of the leadership opposed to the treatment of the citizenry of Portland Oregon are in fact Democrats. It is unnecessarily inciting. I hope someone will reign him in a bit. Thank you.
