The house the "pimp" (who was actually pitched as her boyfriend and wore a dress shirt and tie, not the pimp outfit) and prostitute were supposedly trying to get a loan for was pitched as an escape from prostitution for said underage girls. Additionally, the "tax evasion" advice given was to... always pay taxes on any income. Not really sure what defiinition of "evasion" you guys use, but that doesn't fit mine.

    Thing is, when evidence of this is shown, conservatives still don't believe it. It's really amazing.
    You're forgetting there was more than one Acorn tape and that Acorn did get defunded.

    War: ACORN sues Breitbart, O’Keefe, and Giles « Hot Air
    Amazing. In one fell swoop, the lawsuit (a) gives Fox a reason to keep covering the story, (b) presents a thorny legal issue that’ll attract media to the scandal who might not otherwise have touched it, and (c) makes ACORN look like they’re trying to punish people who exposed taxpayer-funded corruption. Which, of course, they are.
    Remember, Bertha Lewis told CNN she was grateful to O’Keefe et al. for rooting out those “few bad apples,” but as the boss reminds us, shooting the messenger is the ACORN way. Here’s her gratitude:
    ACORN, taking a break from its apology tour, said today that it’s filing suit against James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and Andrew Breitbart’s Breitbart.com.
    The complaint: “The video and audio footage was taken without the knowledge of Williams and/or Thompson and in violation of Maryland’s Courts and Judicial Proceedings Code §§ 10-402(a) and 10-410, which requires two party consent to all electronic surveillance. Violation of the law is a felony, and entitles parties whose rights were violated to sue.”

    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.
    Did they turn down the fake 5 million or was it never really offered? From the video it seemed Schiller was trying to say all the right things to get the donation.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understood that he was hosting what he hoped were donors in an official capacity of NPR.

    Unless someone destroys the credibility of a journalist working for NPR (i.e. they lied or fabricated a story Janet Cooke-style, or management intentionally ordered them to introduce bias or spin into the material they broadcast), then their credibility still stands.

    didn't a judge declare that the defunding was unconstitutional?

    Re: NPR chief executive quits over hidden camera video

    [QUOTE=whysoserious;1059336664]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?[/QUOTE]

    For me it was the George Soros donation and then Juan getting the boot within a few days. Also their affiliation with CAIR and them being the possible reason for him getting fired.
    Now this...it's time to defund them.

    I believe they turned it down. That's the news I heard. If you have some conspiracy theory that they didn't, any evidence would be fine.

    Now that's a decent point that I would concede to. Ethically it would be inappropriate for him to discuss his own political views with potential donors.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    I couldn't find anything on that.

    why would that be wrong, ethically? don't politicians espouse their views every day?

    If you don't think NPR is bias then OK. We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

    Juan Williams is a perfect example of liberal bias over at NPR.
