The Trump presidency has hit many on the Left hard, and judging from the following tweet from a New York University journalism professor, it’s even affecting longtime listening habits:
After 25 years as a loyal listener — with Morning Edition as my alarm and first news source — I had to quit. This one sealed it: "There are a lot of people in the United States who don't see Donald Trump is a habitual liar and who are are big fans of his." https://t.co/gihJPAuVuP https://t.co/eb6HigTsAx

Wow, that’s a fact that sure didn’t sit well.
When NPR is too right-wing for you that's a good indication that you've lost the plot. https://t.co/fUL2398Hth

For this journalism professor, truth is no defense when it comes to reporting on the President. https://t.co/WiIUx03Lql

I just find it so totally bizarre that Jay Rosen has decided after several decades to renounce NPR's Morning Edition for committing the crime of observing, accurately, that there are many people in the United States who like Trump https://t.co/bplw7ydh2k

Apparently the truth is a secondary concern at best these days.
A journalism professor had to quit listening to NPR after they said some people like Trump. This man is teaching the next generation of journalists. https://t.co/dPJzWMsL4e

It’s even more abundantly clear how “journalism” ended up with the reputation it has.
