NPR as a synonym for "elitist"

January 7, 2003 |

Mr. Keillor:
In the December 2 issue of “The New Yorker" Joe Klein writes that the Democratic Party has "National Public Radio tendencies." I have no idea what these tendencies are. Do you have any ideas on this? I hope your long experiences with MPR, The New Yorker magazine, and politics, will help enlighten this mystery.

New York

Gary, I suppose that he’s using NPR as a synonym for “elitist,” which I suppose NPR is, and so are both political parties, except they have to go to great trouble to hide it.
