No wonder NPR cultists worship the network so. NPR is so good that it analyzes the news before it happens. Brian Lowry. Variety's top TV writer, describes a recent interview request from NPR:
An NPR program recently asked me to tape an interview analyzing the significance of this year's Emmy Awards. The only problem was that they wanted to pre-tape the segment on Wednesday and then air it the day after the event, on Monday.
Adds Lowry: "I politely (OK, actually, not that politely) declined."
