NPR Promotes Brutal Rodeo And Other Forms Of Animal Suffering
16 Jul 2012
Censorship and active promotion of animal cruelty continue on NPR and its affiliates.
Reisa Sperling of Harvard Medical School
discussed alzheimer's disease for an hour today on the Diane Rehm Show, not once mentioning
that the chief cause of the disease is amyloid plaque, a biochemical byproduct of the body's
processing of animal flesh. Other factors in
loss of blood to the brain include the lining of cerebral arteries with cholesterol or animal fat, the plaque created by uric acid or pre-urine which
crystallizes in needle formation, the long time meat takes to digest in the stomach, an average
3 to 4 hours, during which blood is diverted from
the brain.

NPR's Morning Edition promoted rodeo for several minutes, perhaps to attempt to defuse animal rights outrage at Romney's decision to keep rodeo in the Salt Lake City Olympics. Rodeo breaks the necks, spines, and legs of bulls, calves, horses and cowboys.

WKSU, 'public' radio of Kent State University continued its animal abuse today, promoting the electroshocking of bats being done by Dr. Jeff Wenstrup and others at the Northeast Ohio Medical University while Jeff St Clair of WKSU’s Exploradio enthusiastically promoted this torture. The bat shrieked during the interview. WKSU has also been promoting fish suffocation in the news and the show Quick Bites.
