NPR fires Opera host for anti-war protests

• RT.Com/USA
Because one radio host is concerned that America is going baroque over its massive military budget, NPR has ditched the DJ behind its World of Opera program due to her affiliation with a political protest in Washington DC.
Lisa Simeone has lost her gig with NPR World of Opera — not for bad mouthing baritones or for an angry rant on arias — but for taking part in the ongoing October 2011/Stop the Machine protests in DC that aims to draw attention to the continuing funding by Washington of the war in Afghanistan, which is now in its tenth year.
