To the editors:

Regarding Mr. Garvin’s article criticizing NPR, I am uncomfortable with his suggestion that most NPR listeners have no other news sources. Locally, a typical NPR listener probably also reads the Tribune and Crain’s, among others. Mr. Garvin also left the impression that he considers any story questioning the views of Milton Friedman, Robert Dole, or Clarence Thomas to be slanted or inaccurate. Perhaps he has more in common with his sister than he realizes; he wants his news from people who think like him.
