I did not hear the story; I hope that many members of JPL will write to  
Terry Gross and/or NPR management with these sentiments. It's not just that it 
 hurts the music, it's a journalistic shortcoming that comes from either  
ignorance or indifference. Who did the story? Someone who should have known

Anyone  hear this spot on Fresh Air? The announcer states that he endorsed 
the  Montreal Jazz Fest. He starts talking then remarks something to the 
effect  that he's not going to focus on the jazz and ignores it. While the 
"world"  artists are very cool if I were the average listener I would ask why 
not talk  about the jazz? What was wrong with it? It's perceptions like this 
that hurt  this music.
