Breitbart reports that conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos flew to New York July 10 for an extensive interview with NPR about his self-published New York Times bestseller Dangerous, only to have the left-leaning network stall on posting the interview. Milo believes that it’s because he frustrated NPR by sounding “too reasonable.” Initially the show’s host promised that the interview would go live the following day. Later Milo was told by an NPR producer that the interview would be posted the following week. Now he has been informed that “a short version” of the talk would go up “sometime in August.”
Milo’s take on the strange delay:
“It’s perfectly obvious from the constantly shifting deadline from NPR producers and the line of questioning from the host that they were expecting a low-rent troll — someone who would assure the broadcaster’s ossified audience that anyone sympathetic to the President must be a redneck or an idiot.
“What they got was me: an articulate, New York Times bestselling author in complete command of his material. If America were finally to hear a provocative, intelligent, fabulous but eminently reasonable gay free speech crusader who leans to the Right — yes, I’m still talking about myself — it would be devastating to the Left’s speech codes and dedication to political correctness and identity politics. So NPR did the only thing they could in the circumstances to protect the narrative: they nixed the interview.”
Breitbart reports that NPR also previously spiked an interview with conservative podcaster Adam Carolla after an attempt to portray the comedian as a racist backfired.
Meanwhile, Milo has provided Breitbart News with exclusive footage of the interview, recorded in the NPR studios. Check it out in the video below.
