I will not support NPR/KQED anymore
This is a message I sent to National Public Radio and its local (San Francisco, CA) station on 4/27/2002.
I am very disappointed in the way NPR has been covering the events in Israel and the Middle East. Particularly disturbing is their latest trend of calling murderous Palestinian terrorists by the mild term "militants".
In this message I give them a specific example after the murder of Danielle Shefi, a 5-year old Israeli girl, was described as the "killing of a settler by a Palestinian militant".

I have had similar opinion - but like many others have neglected to let NPR know my feelings. The decided one- sided or deleted facts - the distortions and undue sympathy for the perpetrators while ignoring the fact that Israel is defending its very existence has made me also refuse to continue my long standing support of NPR. Not many of us can exress our thoughts so well.
