Pledge weak

Andrew Phelps of NPR affiliate WBUR, Boston, tweeted Sunday that "WBUR is now allowing donors to specify their money not go toward NPR programming." This news was broken to WBUR's Tom Ashbrook, during yesterday's On Point broadcast, by guest Jay Rosen.

On NPR, only Car Talk at its best has ever made me laugh harder.

Update: In the latest issue of The New York Review of Books, Bill McKibben reflects on the general wonderfulness of public radio, All Programs Considered. General, not universal.
There are public radio stations so hidebound that they run the not-that-hilarious Car Talk twice each week.
Which stations? Maybe it will be This Week's Puzzler.
