At the end of September, WBEZ – Chicago’s primary NPR affiliate – made the decision to drop Smiley & West from its schedule.  This week, Tavis Smiley released a public letter responding to the cancellation, and to comments made by Chicago Public Media president and CEO Torey Malatia, who said the show was “becoming like Democracy Now" and veering too far from WBEZ’s declaration of principles.
