Leftist NPR Quits Twitter after Musk Destroys Outlet-s Credibility with Govt Funded Label

Establishment leftist media outlet NPR has confirmed they will stop using Twitter following their official account being labeled ‘GOVERNMENT FUNDED MEDIA’ by Elon Musk.

NPR is the first major news organization to quit the platform.

“NPR’s organizational accounts will no longer be active on Twitter because the platform is taking actions that undermine our credibility by falsely implying that we are not editorially independent,” NPR said in a statement, Fox News reported.

“We are not putting our journalism on platforms that have demonstrated an interest in undermining our credibility and the public’s understanding of our editorial independence,” the statement continued.

“We are turning away from Twitter but not from our audience and communities. There are plenty of ways to stay connected and keep up with NPR’s news, music, and cultural content.”

As The Daily Fetched reported last week:

Musk removed the “state-affiliated media” on the official National Public Radio (NPR) account and replaced it with a more “accurate” “government-funded media” label.

Last week, NPR was initially slapped with the “state-affiliated media” label before Twitter faced pressure to pull the label.

Other media Twitter accounts with the label include Russian state-owned TASS, China’s official state news agency Xinhua, and Russian state-controlled RT.

NPR updated its Twitter bio after Elon Musk slapped the account with the label; this is what it said:

“NPR is an independent news organization committed to informing the public about the world around us. You can find us every other place you read the news.”

Last week, The New York Times became the first large account to lose its legacy verification after its yellow check disappeared after April 1.

Last month, Twitter announced, “On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue.”

CNN’s Oliver Darcey reported that the New York Times said it would not pay a monthly fee for its Twitter account.

Twitter has exposed NPR as the Democrat Party boot lickers they are. NPR is so woke it’s sickening.
