The anchor introduced a Morning Edition segment on ethanol subsidies by referring to the "crushing deficit." Is this bit of editorializing now official NPR policy? If NPR needs an adjective for deficits right now, a more accurate one would be "essential," since demand and therefore GDP would plummet if the country were to balance its budget.
