Barbara Bradley Hagerty... 

Biblio at Better Angels has compiled her research on NPR's religion reporter Barbara Bradley Hagerty.
More troubling still is [Hagerty's] association with Howard Ahmanson's Fieldstead and Co. and Fieldstead Foundation. Ahmanson is a California millionaire who uses his trust fund to finance right-wing Christian, anti-gay, anti-evolution groups and politicians. He was previously associated with Christian Reconstructionism, which advocates a Biblically-based government for the U.S.
A reporter with a clearly fundamentalist agenda is reporting on religion without disclosing her conflicts of interest. Biblio provides a link to NPR's ombudsman. You know what to do.
