The controversial Radiance Foundation is still dissatisfied with a recent NPR interview with its founder, Ryan Bomberger. Since the July 18 airing of the interview on Tell Me More, Bomberger has maintained that NPR heavily edited his portion of the interview, while preserving the words of pro-choice Rev. Carlton Veazey, who also made an appearance. #

In a blog post on LifeNews.com, Bomberger wrote: “[NPR's] heavy editing of only The Radiance Foundation’s perspective, while preserving every word spoken by Reverend Carlton Veazey, revealed NPR’s typical liberal bias and uninformed defense of Planned Parenthood.” #

Following Bomberger’s allegations, NPR has defended its interview, arguing that it was not biased and that all cuts had to with “time and fairness.” #

According to NPR, Teshima Walker, the executive producer of *Tell Me More, *wrote Bomberger a response that said, in part: #

Fairness along with relevant facts and civility are our most important objectives in presenting these conversations. The conversation with you and Rev. Veazey had approximately 13:00 [minutes] allotted to it on our program. The discussion lasted 16:30 minutes which required cuts to remarks made by both of you. We believe that the edits we made — which were necessary for time — allowed the substance of both arguments to remain intact while preserving the standard of fairness, clarity and civility. #

“I went back and listened to the story again, and have to conclude that she is right and Bomberger is wrong,” writes Edward Schumacher-Matos, on NPR’s ombudsman blog. “Bomberger’s central argument, that he believes abortion is driven by financial gain for the abortion industry, remained intact.” #

Bomberger fires back in a new post on Radiance’s toomanyaborted.com, arguing that NPR is defending bias with more bias. “They could’ve posted the unedited audio of the interview, but such raw honesty is apparently too much for NPR to handle,” writes Bomberger, adding “it would be laughable if my tax dollars didn’t fund this one-sided journalism.” #

Bomberger’s Radiance was invited on the program to discuss its slew of controversial anti-abortion billboards, which have appeared in predominately African-American neighborhoods and often compare abortion to slavery. Many in the black community have argued that such billboards are racist. (Bomberger has long argued that it is Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that are racist.) #

“I was civil throughout the conversation, never raising my voice and never interrupting,” writes Bomberger. “I was, apparently, way too polite. Perhaps I shouldn’t make that mistake again.” #
