You don't hear NPR making the snide remarks about the Washington Times, New York Post, or any Fox News program? Really? Do you have the radio on, or just have the buttons set?
I listen to NPR all the time.
Have you heard the two interviews Diane Rehm had with Juan Williams? If not, I highly recommend them. And you might even agree with his point. He said that there are controlling elements at NPR who can't even stand to discuss an opposing view with a Conservative or a Republican. And yes, I know people like that who only watch Fox News. He also said that although such people as Sean Hannity are staunchly Conservative, they nevertheless have him, Marla Liasson, Bob Beckle, and numerous other liberals on all the time to discuss their opposing views. Williams' theme in his book "Muzzled" is that too many Americans would rather be ignorant than risk hearing an opposing view, and NPR and its listeners are no better about it than Fox and its viewers. And yes, I have heard Diane Rehm refer to Fox News in terms that almost exactly echo those that I have heard used on Fox for NPR.
I can listen to both (I don't watch much TV, but my Sirius Satellite Radio gets 2 NPR feeds, and only one Fox feed).
