I must confess that my mouth dropped open in shock the first time I heard the phrase ""Support for NPR comes from NPR stations, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), offering E-Verify, confirming the legal working of new hires. At DHS dot gov slash E-Verify."

NPR has been on the defensive ever since arguing that the underwriting money has no bearing on the media organization's journalism. The Electronic Privacy Information Center is taking NPR to task because FCC rules state that public broadcasters like NPR may include "...slogans which identify and do not promote". EPIC claims NPR has crossed the line with the E-Verify language.
