Isnt NPR state-controlled media from the USA? Definitely not a neutral source on China to say the least.
They’ve had all kinds of corporate sponsors, even the Koch brothers, but anyone who’s listened to them during the last 2 US election cycles can tell in the coverage they’re an arm of the US democratic party / citigroup. My wife had to stop listening because of how unbearable it became.
Its somewhat difficult to find, but according to this, about half of their revenue comes from corporate sponsorship. I tried to find a breakdown of how much each donates, but couldn’t. Here’s the list anyway.
Someone is real naive if they see any mainstream [country] news and doesn’t think the [country]'s government at least has a hand in it. There is basically no independent journalism anywhere.
NPR isn’t state controlled per se, but they probably report whatever the state department tells them all the same.
It has its biases, but just because it receives some government funding doesn’t make it state-controlled. Whereas with RT and People’s Daily you can assume their contents is inline with the state, NPR is more than happy to bite the hand that feeds it, corporate, philanthropist or government. What biases are there generally come from the individual reporters being human beings.
NPR is independent and receives less then 1% funding from the federal government unfortunately (if you listen to regular NPR on the radio you will undoubtedly hear there funding drives which can last several days).
It was created with https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporation_for_Public_Broadcasting. It’s literally meant to be state-sponsored propaganda. Except it talks more about China, and Russia than a lack of healthcare, or a decrepet infrastructure.
NPR talks a lot about the failings of the US’s health care infrastructure. It talks a bit less about infrastructure, but it certainly discusses it.
