Seth MacFarlane Donates $2.5 Million to NPR After Tweet About Fox Network

Seth MacFarlane is donating $2 million to NPR and $500,000 to Los Angeles’ NPR membership station, KPCC after his viral tweet about Fox News.

It all started when CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted, “Isn’t this sad? Tonight @TuckerCarlson told his viewers not to believe ANYTHING they learn from his rivals: “If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations.”

Seth responded on his Twitter account, “In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News. This is fringe shit, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”

“We are deeply appreciative of the generous gift from Seth MacFarlane, which will go to supporting local news coverage, allowing NPR and Member stations to continue working together to tell the story of the whole country from everywhere in the country,” a NPR spokesperson told Deadline.

    Certain George Soros appreciated the donation. Maybe he will make Seth a Senator or at least a Congressman.

    There’s nothing wrong with suggesting people do their research than blindly believe any one source regarding any subject or the source.
