My local NPR affiliate has been on my naughty list this year for axing vibrant and substantive local programming, some of which was being syndicated nationally, and replacing it with rewarmed news programming, some of it boasting the production quality of Wayne's World. Apparently it's happening all over? At least in Michigan too, where people are really pissed. I'm not sure suing your budget-strapped station is the best solution... will there be a pledge drive for the litigation costs? But I'm starting to think that Tavis Smiley, like Johnny Damon, can hardly be faulted for jumping from a sinking ship. And how much of the deckchair shuffling is a result of Congressional "fiscal responsibility"?
