NPR Hypocritically Promotes Its Own Employee Michele Norris' New Book --yet censored promotion of Harry Shearer's movie 'The Big Uneasy'?
~One listener questioned the “dibs” system in relation to Norris. “A few weeks ago you wrote a piece on Harry Shearer and the ‘Dibs List,’" wrote Joe Schifano. “You justified NPR only having Shearer on one program rather than on the big news magazines. NPR was simply following the guidelines it had set up 5 years ago. Recently I have seen Michele Norris appear on many of the NPR programs. So my question – Does the Dibs List only apply to non-NPR employee guests?”
