Supersized Sell-outs
The $200m bequest, given by Joan Kroc (the widow of McDonalds founder Ray Kroc) to National Public Radio is rich with irony. How will this action square with NPR's overt criticism of multinational corporations? Furthermore, will the anti-globo crowd tune in as loyally, now that their news outlet is tainted from the enemy's donation? As this satirical piece mockingly suggests, will PETA organize a listener boycott of NPR?

For NPR, its like biting into a tasty McDonalds apple pie and having the hot filling burn your mouth and fall into your lap.
