And to offer some absolutely conclusive and please just shut up now and forever everyone proof, NPR was our former SPCF forum members Mtbturtle's favorite everyday media source(she said so one time on the forum).
And if that doesn't finally convince you that they are really and actually biased to the left, then you are sadly a very hopeless case, :)
Lol drop the mic :D
In all seriousness though - to address your first point above:
"But he did actually say this SK right?(even if this has now become a right wing propaganda piece like you just mentioned)"
So as they say, there is the fact, and then there is the interpretation of the fact. Did he actually say that? I wouldn't argue that point. But your right wing propaganda piece interprets that fact as a sign that all of NPR is liberal biased and would have you believe nothing is trustworthy on the basis of this one event. You seem to have accepted this in its entirety, and would therefore be just another of, "The vast majority of the US adult population [that] will believe almost any of the bullshit that the media feeds them".
Alternatively my interpretation of that fact is that NPR identified, or had it brought to their attention a situation of bias in one of their correspondents - and are publicly acknowledging the situation so as to improve their product and maintain bias free reporting. i think the reality is that bias free reporting is their goal, however, they slip on occasion and when they do, they do so on the left side of the spectrum.
