    taken down? no. perhaps tarnished a bit in the public eye. probably not as bad (yet, O'Keefe says there is more video. if this rolls out anything like the ACORN video did, then who knows where it's going to go) as the Juan Williams firing.

    and probably not good for the future of their federal funding, as Republicans cast about for items to cut, it makes it harder for Democrats to defend NPR.

    which, mind you, is the most interesting part of this for me. I knew what NPR thought of the American people already. I was fascinated to learn that they might want to wean themselves off of public money. Finally, bipartisan agreement

    this is why i think the fellow is an asshole:
    “While the meeting I participated in turned out to be a ruse, I made statements during the course of the meeting that are counter to NPR’s values and also not reflective of my own beliefs. I offer my sincere apology to those I offended,” Schiller announced in a statement
    he is asserting that he is saying things he does not actually believe

    if he were an actor, paid to parrot the lines written by another, then saying something not reflective of one's personal beliefs can then be excused. but this bastard does not have the balls to admit what he expressed were his own beliefs
    his stepping away from npr is a good - no, a great - thing

    O'Keefe posted the entire UNEDITED video, just to satisfy people like you. Wouldn't it be nice if the mainstream media did the same so we could see what people really say during interviews.

    I liked the skits on SNL used to do better than the real thing. NPR is a snooze. Who cares about it?

    Would it be painfully obvious to point out that what I said was still there and if you tried to edit a video like that it would also be painfully obvious that it was heavily edited? Good thing we have the fully unedited version for ya.

    the people that whine about 'heavily edited videos', are the same ones who will tell you they don't have time to watch the complete video.

    “While the meeting I participated in turned out to be a ruse, I made statements during the course of the meeting that are counter to NPR’s values and also not reflective of my own beliefs. I offer my sincere apology to those I offended,” Schiller announced in a statement. “I resigned from NPR, previously effective May 6th, to accept another job. In an effort to put this unfortunate matter behind us, NPR and I have agreed that my resignation is effective today.”

    Robertson is a politican posing as a preacher. He should pay taxes. Reminds me of the Vatican supporting Spain, Italy's and Germany's dictators. Just plain evil.

    Here's more-

    "This isn't the first time that Robertson has shocked people by speaking off-the-cuff. After then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a stroke in January 2006, Robertson posited that it was punishment from God. He urged the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in 2005, and hosted the Rev. Jerry Falwell on The 700 Club in 2001, when Falwell made comments suggesting that gays and feminists, among others, were responsible for bringing the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. He has also become famous for his woeful prognostication, after promising a disastrous tsunami in America in 2006 and a terrorist attack on U.S. soil in 2007, both of which (thankfully) failed to materialize."

    Thats why the GOP had to create the tea party PR/marketing scam. The religious right was damaging the country and Huckabee who is just another fake preacher like Pat Robertson and Jack van Impe is a super creep who never had a prayer of becoming the President, like Palin.

    I think you're in the wrong thread...no, Robertson is not the "R" in NPR.
