Well at least one a couple things noted in NPR’s Ron Schiller admits NPR funding not needed. | RedState. Looks like Ron got caught on camera saying what everyone suspected NPR was about. Then he offered this up:
UPDATE 1: More bad news for the Center for Public Broadcasting: CPB Skirting Law by Campaigning for Own Funding. Ethics: You’re doin’ it wrong.
“This was an act of incredible condescension,” said Williams. “The rank hypocrisy of his remarks was telling for me. They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is. They prostitute themselves for money.”
Williams said Schiller’s remarks about the Jews dominating the newspaper industry was “outright anti-Semitism,” and labeling Tea Party members “gun-toting” “racists” reveals “their real feelings.” This is how they talk in boardrooms and editorial meetings, explained Williams. “This is how they really feel.”
UPDATE 3: Hmmm . . . even though NPR insisted there wasn’t bias, they cut Ron loose early and then forced out Vivian. Time to defund!
First, Vivian Schiller got her walking papers from NPR’s board. Now Ron Schiller, who resigned effective immediately from his position at NPR yesterday in the wake of the undercover sting video, won’t get his position at the Aspen Institute after all.
UPDATE 4: Man oh man this just keeps getting better: More videos on the way!
