Trump questions why NPR exists

Both NPR and PBS operate independently and are not censored or controlled by government officials, differentiating them from other nations’ propaganda outlets, such as Russia’s RT.

A recent Pew survey showed that 31 percent of U.S. adults trust NPR, while 10 percent distrust the media outlet. ABC News is the most-trusted media organization in the U.S., with 48 percent saying they trust the outlet. It was followed by NBC News and CNN (both at 47 percent). CBS News was ranked third (at 45 percent).

Mohler, prominent Southern Baptist, will be nominated to lead denomination

Campaigns for the presidency of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination are usually tightly scripted, polite affairs in which populist megachurch pastors are typically chosen. But because 2020 is a U.S. presidential election year, there was a desire among leaders of some of the denomination’s agencies and seminaries to avoid an ugly and potentially divisive battle over President Donald Trump.
