Twitter has falsely labeled NPR as “state-affiliated media.” It’s a term the platform applies to propaganda outlets in countries without a free press, a guaranteed right in the United States. 

This is an attack on independent journalism, the very principle that defines public media. Twitter has since doubled down on the label, which is outrageous and further undermines the credibility of the platform.

There are still plenty of ways to stay connected and keep up with KCRW's news, music, and culture content on other platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, TikTok
