National Panhandler Radio (NPR or National Public Radio nickname)

NPR (National Public Radio) has sometimes been called “National Panhandler Radio” because of its many pledge drives. “National Panhandler Radio Does Its Imitation Of Media Matters” was an article on the website Unified Patriots on April 9, 2011. American syndicated radio talk show host Chris Plante popularized the “National Panhandler Radio” nickname.

Other NPR nicknames include “National Propaganda Radio” (cited in print since at least 1989), “National Pinko Radio” (cited in print since at least 1990), “National Palestinian Radio” (cited in print since at least 1993), “Nationalized Public Radio” (cited in print since at least 1995) and “National Pubic Radio” (cited in print since at least 2002).


Wikipedia: NPR
National Public Radio (usually shortened to NPR, stylized as npr) is an American privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization that serves as a national syndicator to a network of 900 public radio stations in the United States of America.
