    NPR chief executive quits over hidden camera video

    WASHINGTON – NPR president and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned in the wake of comments by a fellow executive that angered conservatives and renewed calls to end federal funding for public broadcasting.

    The chairman of NPR's board of directors announced Wednesday morning that he has accepted Schiller's resignation, effective immediately.
    NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik said in a tweet that Schiller was forced out by the board.

    A hidden-camera video of an NPR executive calling the tea party racist and saying the network would be better off without federal money has led to that executive's immediate resignation.

    The score in this battle:

    O'Keefe - 2
    N.P.R - 0

    No matter how many personal attacks the left launches on O'Keefe, or how long people dismiss this as "no big deal", it's not going to change the fact that NPR has been caught once again with their hand in the liberal biased cookie jar, and the chips are finally falling.

    So, to you the result justifies the means? Where is your proof NPR is liberal biased, conservative like NPR as well as liberals. I can't prove it, but I would say NPR is probably the least biased of the networks. I think some conservatives don't like NPR because they don't like the truth, so they turn on the FNC.

    Perhaps Juan Williams can answer that for you.

    The means? If you're referring to undercover investigative journalism, absolutely!

    Where is your proof NPR is liberal biased
    Wake up Pete... That ship sailed when they fired Juan Williams because he worked for the "enemy".

    conservative like NPR as well as liberals.
    I'm sure that there's a percentage of conservatives that do like NPR, but that doesn't change a damned thing.

    I can't prove it, but I would say NPR is probably the least biased of the networks.
    There are certainly plenty of other media outlets that are more biased than they are, but when you receive public funding, any level of political bias is unacceptable.


    I think some conservatives don't like NPR because they don't like the truth, so they turn on the FNC.
    First, conservatives want all the news, not just the news deemed fit to report on from a left of center perspective, and second, NPR is a radio network that is generally listened to in the car, or at the workplace, so switching to FNC is not an option.

    Please, libs, keep attacking O'Keefe.

    What will he bring down next?

    ACORN, NPR, Planned Parenthood, PBS, teachers unions, Fannie and Freddie......your sacred institutions are Charlie Sheening down the gutter left and right.

    Where's my popcorn.

    If O'Keefe was a liberal exposing Conservative or Republican organizations he would be showered with praise and awards from lefties.

    Its true PBS current management is infested with liberals and their 'news' reporting is obviously to the far left of center. As a publicly funded organization that should be corrected.

    But PBS does a lot of actual public programs, such as history and children’s which are excellent. I've given money to PBS and don't regret it.

    Could this be done by private corporations? Yes. Should we still fund PBS? IMO yes.

    How? They didn't even take the money! You didn't post one damn time on the Walker "punked tape" (which by the way was unedited), and he actually tried to squeeze more money out of the guy he was talking to. NPR did not take the money.

    This CEO was quitting the job and spoke candidly about his beliefs. I'm appalled that you think he can't have opinions.

    *Edit:

    By the way, this is the third topic on this worn out subject.

    No, you don't understand. O'Keefe didn't "expose" ACORN. He edited footage to create an apparent crime where there was none. ACORN employees did not help a "prostitute" set up a brothel for underage girls. I'm shocked people still aren't aware of this. 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.
