LA NPR Station Ends Planned Parenthood Ads

Jon Weiner reports that KPCC-FM in L.A. has stopped running ads for Planned Parenthood, citing the current push by House Republicans to end funding for that organization.

Program director Craig Curtis explained in a Friday memo to staff members that “given that the budget debate in congress is focusing today on abortion in general and Planned Parenthood by extension,” running the spots “might raise questions in the mind of the reasonable listener regarding our editorial and sales practices.”
