As an addendum to my last post, it seems like NPR is now just daring people to say something. While listening to Fresh Air on my way back to work from lunch, I listened to a nearly ten-minute glowing review of The Riches, a show whose season premiere is tonight on FX. Immediately afterward, the national announcer lets us know that Fresh Air is sponsored by none other than The Riches, premiering tonight on FX.

What made it even more hilarious is that the local announcer then came on to talk about how because NPR doesn’t have to air commercials, they have more time for more in-depth coverage. Sheesh.
