Of course. She's one of the chosen. The truth has been dying at NPR for decades Queen Nina kind of a non-story, imo. Time for this dinosaur to retire. If you put your ego before the truth you should find somewhere else besides NPR. MSNBC sounds like a good spot for ol' Nina. What’s more important: - Gorsuch won’t wear a mask despite working with seniors and people with chronic illnesses. - Gorsuch tried to downplay the COVID pandemic by grossly exaggerating flu deaths. Nothing the public editor says changes this.

Well why wasn't Roberts amply clear that justices should wear masks? “Totenberg said while eating dinner.” Defined NPR! Pretty obvious that the Justices are just trying to keep up appearances, but there is definitely a rift. If Totenberg reported it, it’s fact. I’ll go with Nina

Rushing and standing in groups for hours is dumb. If your not sick your wasting time and tests. Why won’t you talk about COVAXIN? THE REAL VACCINE. SMH

His respect for the work, his colleagues, “the community,” all resonates here, in a surprisingly ungrandiose way. A pro, with a bit of a healthy edge. nprfreshair The unfortunate aspect of his and every player’s performance on the show is that it makes the show entirely unwatchable. The only satisfying end to every episode would be the violent desecration of the entire Roy clan and anyone associated with them.

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesIt is time for POTUS to stack the court with a few more liberal justices. It is so disheartening that at literally every level we have become so selfish and lacking basic care for the people around us. I do not understand this level of cruelty. Wearing a mask is such a small ask... What a insensitive person.

an NPR story on masks in the Supreme Court turned inward as a legendary reporter there blasted the broadcaster’s public editor for critiquing her work. The public editor, Kelly McBride, who operates independently of the newsroom but takes a paycheck from the publication, called for a “clarification, but not a correction” to an article about the Supreme Court written by one of the newsroom’s “founding mothers,” legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg. “She can write any goddam thing she wants, whether or not I think it’s true,” Totenberg told The Daily Beast on Thursday night. “She’s not clarifying anything!” Totenberg laughed, and added: “I haven’t even looked at it, and I don’t care to look at it because I report to the news division, she does not report to the news division.” Totenberg had reported on Tuesday that Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who is diabetic, had been working remotely, asking questions from a microphone in her chambers at a recent hearing and calling into the justices’ weekly conference, to avoid being near Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was the only justice not to wear a mask at that hearing. Totenberg also reported that Chief Justice John Roberts had “in some form asked the other justices to mask up,” prior to that hearing, a request that Gorsuch, who sits next to Sotomayor on the bench in the high court, had evidently refused. In a statement, Gorsuch and Sotomayor, said that “Reporting that Justice Sotomayor asked Justice Gorsuch to wear a mask surprised us. It is false. While we may sometimes disagree about the law, we are warm colleagues and friends.” In his own statement, Roberts said, “I did not request Justice Gorsuch or any other Justice to wear a mask on the bench.” Fox News ran
