Crowdstrike does not appear among their lists of sponsors on NPR's 2018 or 2019 annual reports. Is it possible they were referring to an earlier report focused upon Crowdstrike; there have been several?
No, the blurb was explicit. Maybe Crowdstrike will appear on the 2020 reports. I could dredge up the audio and prepare a clip (assuming the ad is kept in the archive audio); I laughed out loud as I heard it.
I've gone to the NPR site before to look for other funders who got the 15-second on-air blurbs; one was the Kock Bros. main company—not listed. But I don't recall checking the annual report, though again, Kochs might not have appeared if they were new funders.
Feel free to pick up this subject in the "NPR Watch" thread.
