    Elvis Costello is campaigning for radio stations to ban airing his 1979 hit, “Oliver’s Army,” over its contemporary usage of the N-word. The song, which first appeared on the album Armed Forces, features the line, “Only takes one itchy trigger/One more widow, one less white ni**er.” Though the song is one of Costello’s biggest UK hits — it peaked at number two on the UK charts — and is a critique of the British Army for targeting recruitment among the ranks of the lower classes in the 1970s, its use of the N-word has become controversial in recent years. The N-word in the song refers to how upper class Brits often referred to Irish and other lower class citizen soldiers at the time. But now, the word has become such a hot button issue that the singer/song writer told the Telegraph that if he were writing the song today, “I’d think twice about it.” “That’s what my grandfather was called in the British army – it’s historically a fact – but people hear that word go off like a bell...
    Many on the Right are calling to defund National Public Radio after it tweeted that the Declaration of Independence is "a document with flaws and deeply ingrained hypocrisies." After the left-leaning news organization posted a Twitter thread on Sunday saying the Declaration "includes a racist slur against Indigenous Americans" while also "la[ying] the foundation for this country’s collective aspirations — the hopes for what America could be," many on the Right called for NPR's to be defunded.

    National Public Radio (NPR) ignited a social media firestorm Thursday night over a tweet that appears to mock capitalism, despite taxpayer dollars accounting for much of the organization's annual budget. The outlet posted a story titled "And Now, Crocs With Stiletto Heels" that explores a curious new collaboration between luxury fashion brand Balenciaga and Crocs, the rubber slipper company responsible for fashion faux pas among the millions of comfort-clinging owners nationwide. The caption accompanying the article, which was written in both uppercase and lowercase letters, appears to mock the collaboration: "CaPitAliSm bReEds InNovAtiOn," it reads.  The tweet's language sparked outrage on social media, with figures like conservative Tim Young calling out the irony in NPR's three-word post. "You wouldn't exist without capitalism, clown who is tweeting on behalf of NPR," he wrote. "Job at public news station wouldn’t exist wo capitalism," another user echoed. "Are you guys ok?" "Our tax money shouldn't pay for this," one person expressed. "It’s still a hell of a lot better than communism at breeding innovation, even if some of the products are silly," one...

    A group of 20 influential public radio stations has condemned the New York Times for a 'lack of transparency' after personal ties between the star host of 'The Daily' Michael Barbaro and its discredited series 'Caliphate' emerged. Barbaro was in December tasked with speaking to the Times' executive editor Dean Baquet in an episode of The Daily - which is also broadcast on public radio - in which the paper retracted much of the story on which popular series Caliphate had been built. The Times acknowledged that it had been misled in the production of the series by Canadian-Pakistani man Shehroze Chaudhry, 25, who had fabricated his story of working as an ISIS executioner. Yet in hosting the episode, Barbaro failed to disclose that much of the production team involved in 'Caliphate' had come from 'The Daily' - and that he is engaged to the series' executive producer Lisa Tobin. According to NPR, Barbaro also pressured at least five journalists via social media to play down the errors in Caliphate and to get them to pull back their public criticism...
    Kim Jong Un gives field guidance during his visit to the Chongjin Shipyard in this undated photo released on July 17, 2018. North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA)/Reuters A North Korean fishing boat captain has been publicly executed for listening to banned foreign radio stations while at sea. The man, only known by his surname Choi and said to have been in his 40s, was killed by firing squad in front of 100 boat captains and fisheries executives, a Radio Free Asia (RFA) report revealed. Choi, who owned a fleet of over 50 ships, is thought to have been turned in by one of his crew members after he became unpopular with them. He ultimately confessed to authorities and was charged with 'subversion against the party,' the report said. It added that the fishing boat captain had begun the habit of tuning into foreign radio stations while serving as a radio operator in the military and has listened to the station for the past 15 years. In June, a signal corpsman was sent to a North Korean political prison camp for...
    Multiple radio stations were forced to add a disclaimer to an advertisement sponsored by Maine Democrat Senate candidate Sara Gideon after it was brought to the radio stations’ attention that the advertisement, targeting Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), was deceiving to the point that it could violate campaign laws. The ad, airing on radio stations in the final days of the high-stakes Senate race, deceptively simulates an objective news report created by the radio stations when in reality it is a negative campaign ad paid for by Gideon’s campaign. Listen: In the above example, Bangor’s Classic Rock Station I-95 exits to commercial, and the first commercial is Gideon’s campaign ad. While the ad begins with the disclaimer, “I’m Sara Gideon running for U.S. Senate, and I approve this message, paid for by Sara Gideon for Maine,” the ad confusingly switches to a male radio host saying, “Okay, we’re back. With Election Day fast approaching, big news today in the race for Senate. For more on that, we go to Kate Piper in the newsroom.” A phony news report then proceeds...
    Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is calling for National Public Radio to be defunded by the federal government. The movement to defund NPR comes after the media organization announced that it would not cover the allegations against Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. On Thursday, NPR managing editor Terence Samuels declared that covering the news story about emails from Hunter Biden's laptop that was left at a computer repair store is a "waste" of time, and discredited the allegations a "distraction." "We don't want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don't want to waste the listeners' and readers' time on stories that are just pure distractions," Samuels stated. "And quite frankly, that's where we ended up, this was ... a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way."Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?

    An advertisement for Apple Music is posted on a street in New York.Getty Images Apple on Tuesday renamed its flagship radio station, Beats 1, to Apple Music 1.
