Rep. Jim Banks Introduces Legislation To Defund NPR

Apr 19, 2024 | Political News

Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks introduced legislation Friday to defund National Public Radio (NPR).

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the legislation, which is titled the Defund NPR Act. The bill would cut off any federal funds to NPR.

An NPR editor, Uri Berliner, published a piece alleging the outlet has deep political bias and that the Washington D.C. bureau employs 87 registered Democrats and zero registered Republicans.

Berliner resigned after NPR suspended him for publishing the piece.
