Wayne's interesting - I remember seeing a documentary about Carl Foreman - very much of the political left - and also a good friend of Wayne. When Foreman had great difficulty deciding what to do about the subpoena to appear and testify before Congress - and did NOT want to name his friends if asked - he had to decide whether to leave the country. Wayne PLEADED with Foreman throughout the night not to emigrate - to name names if necessary - that Communists could not be his true friends (due to their political intentions). Foreman described the hours-long wrenching discussion as ending almost in tears. But Foreman left anyway.
And by the way, NPR isn't the only public radio network. There are a bunch of them. Ten national networks and several dozen state and regional networks around the country.
