Here we go again. From Richard Nixon to Newt Gingrich to Donald Trump, the bias against unbiased news reporting continues. The president recently unleashed his famous fury on public broadcasting. And, what do you know! NPR’s public donations increased as a result, which puts me in mind of a song, of course…

Pompeo don’t allow no Ukraine questions round here
Mary Louise Kelly got 4-letter words in her ear
He blessed her out and his language shocked
Cause she didn’t act like his friends on Fox
Now Trump don’t allow no NPR around here

President don’t allow no NPR around here
President don’t allow no NPR around here
Folks don’t care what the president say
They make their pledges any old way
There’ll always be an NPR around here
