I have been a devoted listener and member of NPR for decades and I deeply appreciate your ability to produce fair and honest reporting about complex issues.
However, I was truly shocked this morning when Mara Liason essentially gave her approval to the outright and blatant lies being produced by McCain campaign. When she stated that winning is important to the Republicans, and that if they have to "win dirty" so be it, I nearly drove off the road.
This statement undercuts everything NPR stands for. As far as Ms. Liason is concerned, the truth is now relative in political campaigns, and it's perfectly OK to elect a President based on lies.
She should be removed from the political beat immediately and assigned to something more suitable to her opinions, such as fashion or gardening.
