NPR has no shame. None. But, apparently, they have embarrassment.
The headline “Is Slow Growth Actually Good for the Economy?” topped NPR’s brazen spin that a stagnant U.S. economy floundering in the tank is actually “good for us”. Gabriel Malor and Michelle Malkin Tweeted the asinine headline, starting a humorous campaign of NPR ridicule…“Let the NPR headline games begin”. After funny headlines, like “Was the Titanic sinking actually good for swimming skills?”, hit Twitter NPR was embarrassed into changing their own absurd one.

“Is Slow Growth Actually Good for the Economy?” That, I’m not joking, was an actual headline at NPR.
The headline not only exposes the Obama-water-carrying attitudes at NPR, it also exposes the fact that NPR is filled with what I call “insular progressives.” …
This time, however, the NPR progressives seem to have realized their insular nature, and it seems they became embarrassed by the headline. They changed it to “Is Moderate [my emphasis] Growth Actually Good for the Economy?”
What brought on the embarrassment? How’d the progressives at NPR come to realize how ridiculous their headline was?
It appears that two people, Gabriel Malor and Michelle Malkin, and one institution, Twitter, are most responsible. Malor wrote a link to the headline along with the the following tweet: “Unbelievable. Actual NPR headline.” He wrote another tweet making fun of NPR’s headline: “Is high blood pressure actually good for your health?”
Malkin retweeted Malor’s tweet, and she urged her twitter followers to “let the NPR headlines games begin.” Here are some of the faux NPR headlines. They include “Is cancer actually good for the body?” and “Was Seal Team Six good for bin Laden?”.
Only Liberals can take a pile of trash, put a bow on it, and believe we’ll think it’s pretty. Obama’s failed Keynesian economics of “tax and spend” would spread Detroit’s plight to the rest of the country. And NPR would redefine it as “good for us”.
Keynes is dead. Get over it.
