Jesuit priest and professor of theology at the College of the Holy Cross

Today, I turned on the radio to listen to the news and what I got instead was Jesuit indoctrination. Boy, those guys are being promoted even when you're not looking, or listening as in this case.

As I listened to the local Public Radio station (NPR) there was a program on called Bob Edwards Weekend from PRI; While listening I experienced another 'wonderful' vignette on how selfless the Jesuits are, and how dedicated they are to help the disadvantaged people of society. What propaganda?

This reminds my of Adolph Hitler's Propaganda Chief - Joseph Goebbels' quote:

"If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth".

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times joins Bob to discuss the latest political news. Next, while most of the nation was shocked at the death of Martin Luther King Jr., Jesuit priest and professor of theology at the College of the Holy Cross canvassed the East Coast in search of African American students to admit to the university, students who would play their part in America’s racial integration. Diane Brady’s book Fraternity tells this story from the perspective of the students who would later become defense attorneys and activists, a Supreme Court Justice, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Literature. Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Dave Stewart. After Stewart grew tired of his career in manufacturing, he bought a farm in New Hampshire. He grows vegetables and raises, chickens, sheep, pigs, and cows. Stewart’s grandfather was a dairy farmer, and now he has found the same pleasure in the simple routines of milking and grazing.

The Bob Edwards Show

The Bob Edwards Show is an American radioprogram presented by Sirius XM Satellite Radio every weekday morning at 8 a.m. Eastern, with repeats at 8 a.m. Central, 7 a.m. Pacific, 6 p.m. Mountain, and the next morning at 7 a.m. Eastern. The program can be heard on the XM Public Radio station at XM channel 121 and Sirius channel 205, and is also available 24/7 on XM Radio Online and Sirius Internet Radio.

The show is hosted by Bob Edwards, a Peabody Award-winning member of the National Radio Hall of Fame. Edwards was once the co-host of National Public Radio's All Things Considered, and hosted NPR's Morning Edition from the first episode to April 30, 2004 when he was re-assigned to another position within NPR, despite email objections from more than fifty thousand listeners. Edwards left his new assignment almost immediately, as Hugh Panero, CEO of XM Radio, offered Edwards a daily show.

The Bob Edwards Show continues the tradition of interviewing interesting people in all walks of life that Edwards exemplified on Morning Edition, but now in long form. Edwards told the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer's Terrance Smith, "The longest interview I could do on the air for Morning Edition was eight minutes. Now I can interview someone for up to an hour. So it's a freer, more open, more relaxed and enjoyable conversation. The program's really about conversation." The show's first broadcast was on October 4, 2004, staffed by experienced public radio veterans. The first program included weekly political commentatorWashington Post columnist David S. Broder, USA Today Supreme Court reporter Joan Biskupic, formerCBS News anchor Walter Cronkite, and Eugene Robinson, author of Last Dance in Havana.

In 2006, interviews with musicians earned The Bob Edwards Show the Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP. The program also received a Gabriel Award from the Catholic Academy for Communication Arts Professionals for an interview with Father Gregory Boyle, a Jesuit priest who works with Latino gang members in east Los Angeles. The show earned a second Gabriel Award in 2007 for "Exploding Heritage," a documentary about mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia. "Exploding Heritage" also received the National Press Club's Robert L. Kozic Award for environmental reporting, a New York Festivals Gold World Medal for best program on the environment, and an award from the Society of Environmental Journalists. In 2008, The Bob Edwards Show received an Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio-Television News Directors Association and a New York Festivals/United Nations Gold Award for a documentary called "The Invisible--Children Without Homes." "The Invisible" also was honored by the Journalism Center on Children and Families and by the Catholic Academy for Communication Arts Professionals. In 2009, the show received a Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for the documentary, "Stories from Third Med: Surviving a Jungle ER." The documentary also earned a Gabriel Award.

XM Radio also produces the compilation program Bob Edwards Weekend, distributed by Public Radio International for use by "terrestrial" public radio stations. It premiered on January 7-8, 2006, consisting of re-edited interviews from the weekday program. Bob Edwards Weekend is also available online via podcastat the program's website.
