Your tax dollars funding propaganda-----NPR Puts 'Trigger Warning' at Start of Steve Bannon Story

NPR Puts 'Trigger Warning' at Start of Steve Bannon Story
"National Public Radio added a “trigger warning” to the start of a story on All Things Considered on Monday evening about President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon as Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor.
Host Robert Siegel introduced the story by David Folkenflik with the following warning (emphasis added):
Donald Trump has richly rewarded his campaign’s CEO, Steve Bannon, with an appointment as chief White House strategist. That appointment has inspired a firestorm. Bannon’s critics say his right-wing news site, Breitbart, spreads hate and bigotry, as NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik reports. And just a note – this story has language that some listeners might find offensive.
