KQED - Fair and Balanced

The local affiliate of NPR is the only radio station in the bay area with intelligent programming actually worthy of one’s time. Their political bias, however, is not even thinly veiled. Here’s a sample:

It's Your World (formerly World Affairs Council)
Airtime: Tue, October 31, 2006 -- 2:00am

What Are Americans Voting For? -- This discussion focuses on what matters to Americans as they head to the polls this November. The panel includes Joan Blades ("The Motherhood Manifesto"), cofounder of Moveon.org; George Lakoff ("Don't Think of an Elephant"), professor of cognitive linguistics at UC-Berkeley; Markos Moulitsas ("Crashing the Gates"), founder of The Daily Kos blog; and Robert Reich ("Reason"), secretary of labor under President Clinton and public policy professor at UC-Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy. Moderated by Bruce Cain, director of the UC Washington Center and the Institute of Governmental Studies.
So we have the moderate left (Reich), progressive left (Lakoff), radical left (Moulitas), and the ultra-left (Blades)… I guess we’ve got the entire bay area political spectrum covered!
