National Public Radio CEO Declares Truth to be a Distraction that Gets in the Way of Her Agenda

I have advised readers for many years that NPR, NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, and the rest of the presstitutes are lie machines whose only function is to indoctrinate Americans with official narratives so that they have no comprehension of what is really happening or why and renders them ignorant of the real threats that they face.

Now the NPR CEO 100% confirms everything I have told you.
New NPR CEO Katherine Maher gave a Ted Talk during which she asserted that “truth” is a “distraction” which is “getting in the way of getting things done.”

Calls are growing for NPR to have its government funding withdrawn after a series of tweets by Maher were uncovered in which she supported far-left causes, including endorsing racial reparations and making claims that the planet is “burning.”
But the content of the Ted Talk she gave is raising even more eyebrows.
Maher ludicrously suggested during the speech that far-left Wikipedia had a model “which actually works really well” in determining “what the truth really is.”
Acknowledging that Wikipedia writers are “not focused on the truth, they’re focused on something else, which is the best of what we can know right now,” Maher suggested the “truth” was not a priority.

“In fact, our reverence for the truth might be a distraction that’s getting in the way of finding common ground and getting things done,” she said.

Maher went on to claim “there are many different truths” based on the feelings, environment and perception of different individuals.
In other words, there is no objective truth and the truth is whatever left-wing journalists and biased Wikipedia editors say it is.

[As I have told you for years, truth has been dethroned and made secondary to emotion. It is no longer truth that is important. What is important is your emotional state based on your political and ideological brainwashing and biases. Education has destroyed the idea of objective truth among young Americans. The consequence is the demise of science, scholarship, and justice. Juries now convict not on the basis of facts but on the basis of their emotions. If it is a well publicized case, the media will have already programmed the verdict into the jury. The Woke generation will be the most illiterate generation in modern history.]

Elon Musk has blasted NPR in recent days, asserting that the network has “become a hard left propaganda machine that tolerates no dissent.”
That was in response to comments by award-winning veteran senior NPR editor Uri Berliner, who was suspended after sharing concerns about the state of the mainstream media especially NPR.

Berliner lamented the “declining ratings” and “sorry levels of trust,” calling on the legacy press to go back to square one “with the basic building blocks of journalism.”

[Zero Hedge: Berliner just resigned, explaining that “I cannot work in a newsroom where I am disparaged by a new CEO whose divisive views confirm the very problems at NPR I cite in my Free Press essay.”]

Musk also highlighted how Maher (who puts pronouns in her bio) has a history of working for corrupt, globalist institutions.

“While NPR often claims that public funding accounts for only a small portion of its budget, the outlet’s parent company, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, received $525 million this year, $126 million of which went to public radio stations. Because much of NPR’s public funding is indirect, channelled through member fees paid by local stations, it is able to claim financial independence,” reports Unherd.

Last year, Twitter placed a label on NPR’s account describing the outlet as “State-affiliated media,” with owner Elon Musk commenting that the description “seems accurate.”

The question I have is: what is the difference between Katherine Maher and Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot? She believes exactly as they did: Truth is whatever serves the agenda. As far as I can tell this is the belief of the entirety of the liberal-left.
