If some “alt right” host had accused Bernie Sanders of holding dual citizenship with Israel and asking how he could still be President, he would have been fired or much more. Diane Rehm blamed her question on a message she saw on her twitter feed. There appeared to be no consequences to her from that incident.
She is 80 years old and has decided it is time for her NPR retirement party.
The CEO of NPR characterizes her program as “non-ideological and civil conversation”. There was a story the other day about people in the media realizing they don’t know a single person personally who voted for Trump.
