NPR recently moved from Chinatown into its new 400,000 square-foot home on North Capitol, and they’re excited about it. Eager to show off the new facility, the organization offered a tour to members of the media Tuesday morning, starting with breakfast from their in-house chefs, along with some talking points from CEO Gary Knell, who outlined some impressive features of the space.
Ever wonder why the Washington DC area is never felt the "great recession?"
Oh, and it has other great facilities that you unemployed "Country Class" don't have.
The tour continued through the wellness center, which is capable of simple medical procedures, the fitness center, which is staffed by a trainer, and the cafe, which utilizes the same catering company as Google. The cafe was named by a contest in which employees submitted more than 200 ideas. The winning name, Sound Bites, was entered by Stamberg, further marking her legacy at NPR and the new facility.
From the comments:
Given that these folks are all sucking on the public teat, they should have named that cafe "Free Lunch".
Gobbells Gormet eatery.
Keep in mind that the government subsidizes this propaganda organ to the tune of $400 million a year.
