Writing on her blog, NPR ombudsman Elizabeth Jensen—whose job it is to filter and respond to the complaints of unhappy NPR listeners, in what sounds very like the textbook definition of Hell—shared some of the concerns people had raised. “Vapid, talentless, and shallow individuals who have not earned fame or fortune through an ounce of hard work have no place on a show of such caliber,” one listener wrote, with another adding, “I listen to NPR to get AWAY from Kardashian-like garbage.” A few even threatened to revoke their public radio pledges, or refuse to support the organization in the future. … [Read more...] about NPR listeners outraged by existence of Kim Kardashian
