Over 20 public radio stations in major American cities are "condemning the actions of the New York Times" in relation to the "Caliphate" podcast controversy, NPR reports. Last year, the 2018 award-winning show "Caliphate" came into the limelight when the NYT said the show "fell short of journalistic standards."
- Michael Barbaro, host of NYT's flagship show "The Daily" is also being denounced for "pressuring other journalists behind the scenes to temper their criticism of the podcast."
- Houston Public Media has suspended Barbaro's show from their radio station until further notice.
- NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik tweeted on the subject, citing station officials' feelings about Barbaro's actions as bringing his "general credibility into question."
- "Caliphate" host Rukmini Callimachi apologized last year for "what we missed and what we got wrong."
