News & Notes No More

NPR's Farai Chideya sounds off about the cancellation of her popular radio show News & Notes. "I'm not convinced that any one of the theories about why our show was cancelled holds up," she tells blogger Eisa Ulen. Chideya left the show right before inauguration, because, she says, NPR denied her the chance to cover the historic event. News & Notes gets the ax on March 20.

The show served an audience -- a predominantly black audience -- that NPR has been accused of ignoring in the past.
