NPR Tweets Declaration Of Independence, Triggers Outrage - TPM
Continuing its 29-year tradition of broadcasting an annual reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, National Public Radio accompanied that broadcast with line-by-line tweets of the founding fathers' statement Tuesday.

But some Twitter users interpreted the tweets as an attack on President Donald Trump, calling NPR "propaganda" and said the radio station was "calling for a revolution."

This is one of those few occasions where an non-apology apology would be appropriate:

"We at NPR would like to apologize to those who were offended this Fourth of July by our publishing the American Declaration of Independence."

Tee-hee.
