    This CEO was quitting the job and spoke candidly about his beliefs. I'm appalled that you think he can't have opinions.
    Money changing hands and having opinions are not the issues here. I believe the donation would have been legal so I don't see a problem there. Everyone has opinions.

    That being said, his opinions about conservatives and the Tea Party people in particular are ridiculous and he deserves the criticism he's receiving.

    It's always fun to watch the reaction when a lefties true beliefs see the light of day. They seem surprised the country doesn't believe the same things they do.

    0bama's probably still trying to figure out what was so bad about his bitter clingers speech.

    Then you and I have a very different interpretation of "exposed".

    He proved ACORN was willing to be involved in an illegal act. They seemed quite eager to help ..... almost like it wasn't the first time they had falsified documents to benefit an illegal enterprise.

    Exposed sums it up nicely.

    What? So you give no credit to the fact that they turned down 5 million from a shady donor? Also, this man can't have political ideas of his own separate from the company he works for? And I'm sorry, but this statement makes no sense:

    You realize that it's like a 50/50 split in this country right? If you think his opinions of the Tea Party is ridiculous, I look forward to seeing you all over this board sticking up for the ridiculous attacks against liberals as well. In fact, there is no way you could listen Rush Limbaugh who grossly judges liberals daily.

    Yes, and Ed Schultz, and Dennis Prager are angles....Ok.... Oh, did NPR/PBS take a Million dollars from Soros to buy reporters?

    So, with the news that George Soros is buying one hundred political “reporters” for National Public Radio (NPR), one waits with bated breath for the left to decry the fact that a famous anti-American leftist is buying and influencing the “news.”

    Ed Schultz and Dennis Prager are no comparison - no one even listens to them lol. You can bring up nobodies if you want, but these guys don't have Beck/Limbaugh-like followings.

    Also, now if NPR accepts funding from a liberal they are a liberal organization too!?! Let the attack begin. Man the conservative machine is something else.

    *Edit:

    Dennis Prager appears to be conservative, by the way.

    Not the issue.

    I don't believe the 50/50. It's roughly 2:1 conservative to liberal in most polls/surveys I've seen. There are lots of independents. 30-40% I believe. If I'm wrong let me know but that's what I remember from the few articles I've read. Polls are useful, but usually don't really prove anything one way or the other.

    I do and will stick up for liberals when I believe they are being wrongly attacked by Conservatives or Republicans. That doesn't happen very often though, liberals are rarely right IMO.

    I'm sticking up for 0bama right now on Afghanistan with regard to civilian deaths. They are unavoidable given the nature of jihadis and I support his military efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan even though it will cause civilian deaths. I'm surprised more liberals aren't there with me.

    I will also jump in when anyone goes after a politician's or public figures’ children.

    So had they accepted the money you would not be attacking them for it? Just wondering.

    That appears to be correct. I never knew that. I always thought it was like 40% conservative, 40% liberal, 20% independent, but it's more like 40% conservative, 40% independent, 20% liberal.

    Right, so you stick up for them when you agree with them. However, liberals get attacked daily by the most famous of conservative pundits. I hear nothing from conservatives. In fact, the meanest, most attack-like conservative shows are their most popular shows.

    Yet, NPR, a non-profit news organization is under attack? Why? Let's be honest here, it was under attack well before this video came out as well. What has NPR ever done to negatively affect conservatives? And why does this CEO not have the right to have his own political views?

    First of all, quote your sources. Secondly, there is no reason they should not be able to accept donations from a liberal funder.

    Really? And why do you suppose that is? To listen to them you'd think they ruled the ratings world.....

    Oh, I see. So I suspect now that liberals will now accept the Scientists against GW theories that receive funding from oil concerns? You can't get away with constantly having it both ways pal.

    Dennis Prager appears to be conservative, by the way.

    Oh, yeah, damn you're right....I was thinking of Thom Hartmann....
