Documentation of NPR Errors in Reporting on Teaching of Evolution
June 1, 2004
Discovery Institute has documented at least five recent reports on NPR about the teaching of evolution that are inaccurate, misinform listeners on the key issues in the story, and misrepresent the Institute’s position on these issues. To date, NPR has responded to only one complaint raised by the Institute.
Below are PDFs of letters to reporters, producers and the NPR ombudsman.
