    Well, I respect that. Personally I try not to presume which news sources people use because I don't know them or what they listen to/read/watch, and I think people who presume to know where other people get their news are themselves engaging in prejudice. And yes, I totally agree that the "Is that what Fox News told you?" comments need to stop because they're stupid and unproductive.

    heh, I'm from MoCo, but I have a few friends that are from that area since I'm in college right now (UMD College Park, go Terps!). Honestly I identify more with the DC Metro area than the rest of Maryland, but I still think we're an awesome state This is slightly off-topic/personal but did you serve in the 101st? If so, much respect to you.

    Is this a joke? ...time to put that drink down.

    According to audience approval-disapproval, NPR is probably about as nonpartisan as it gets when it comes to bias in major media outlets, outside of the WSJ.
    Unfortunately public perception of media bias is not the method by which bias is measured. Sources used, think tanks referred to and analysis of language used is the only way. Of the studies I've read NPR has a barely registrable liberal bias. Less so than major networks. Networks tend to carry a slight liberal bias after unpopular right wing presidents. Go figure.

    Not to mention definitions of liberal/conservative right/left are subjective.

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.
    Seriously, as my above post illustrates, ANYTHING can be edited to give a false impression.

    The failure of O'Keefe and his ilk to provide raw, unedited footage proves his intent to deceive.

    Even if the footage was too long for a "practical" piece, the raw footage should be made available. All of it.

    He tried the same thing at PBS and FAILED. Did he post that video? Of course not.

    Glad to see her go.

    NPR should be renamed (LLN) Liberal Radio Network and have to rely on donations alone without any Federal money.

    The same goes for PBS, the last time they had good shows other than documentaries and Sesame Street, was in the 70s when they had Monty Python on. That was entertainment.

    Re: NPR chief executive quits over hidden camera video

    Betsy Liley, the other NPR executive at the infamous video taped lunch with Ron Schiller at Café Milano, is the target of a second video released by James O’Keefe’s Project Vertas today.

    The video shows Liley telling a member of the fake Muslim charity that NPR could, by accepting the proposed $5 million gift anonymously, shield the charity from a government audit of NPR's books.

    “[The government has] audited our program, at times, and they have, I think as part of that, they have looked at our audited financials,” she tells the undercover activist by phone. “If you were concerned in any way about that, that’s one reason that you may want to be an anonymous donor. And we would certainly, if that was your interest, want to shield you from that.”

    UPDATE: NPR released a statement condemning Liley’s statements in the video.

    “The statement made by Betsy Liley in the audio tapes released today regarding the possibility of making an anonymous gift that would remain invisible to tax authorities is factually inaccurate and not reflective of NPR’s gift practices. All donations – anonymous and named – are fully reported to the IRS. NPR complies with all financial, tax and disclosure regulations.”
