Just this one guy's opinion, but I personally consider NPR to be somewhat conservative, and fairly complicit in the normalization of everything that's happening right now.
Just this morning, my local affiliate KPCC, on one of its programs, had, as its guest to comment on Gorsuch's nomination, law professor John Yoo, author of the torture memo under the Bush administration.
Last night, on NPR's All Things Considered, they had an interview with Sebastian Gorka, newly minted Deputy Assistant to the president. No introduction about him, no background, nothing; just a "normal" request for commentary from an admin official.
Gorka was a former editor for Breitbart, a Bannon hire, and is currently facing criminal gun possession charges.
Not a moment was spared to illuminate any of this. He was given a completely uncritical platform.
I won't even get started on his extreme unctuousness and arrogance.
These are two rather bald examples from within the last 24 hours, but I hear evidence of NPR's acquiescence on a daily basis. It's subtle, but it's there.
