    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This isn't about bias or what percentage of liberal/conservative guests are put on. It's about which is better at presenting the basic facts of the issue, and which gives you the most accurate representation of reality. The two surveys measured entirely different things. And doesn't NPR still come out on top in this study? They have the least Rep-Dem favorable-unfavorable differentials, outside of the WSJ which is another news org that I respect. According to your chart, three times as many Republicans have a favorable view of NPR as those who have an unfavorable view of it. That should definitely tell you something.

    Not necessarily partisan, but definitely the least misled audience.

    From what I can tell, she was made into a scapegoat. As far as I can tell, I see no specific questionable actions that she performed while on the job.

    I am willing to bet she was canned because she shared a last name with the other guy.

    If that's the case, it's a good thing their last names wasn't Smith or Jones --- 1/3 of the company would have had to have been fired.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Probably not, the guy in the mail room or the purchasing manager or whatever isn't as high profile as a CEO.

    Wow, so NPR is being run by utter morons, and we're to trust them why?

    I am not sure how you came to that conclusion, but this is what I see happening

    News article title : schiller of NPR says something that pissed people off
    In today's soundbyte and short attention span culture, people are going to see the name schiller and remember that article, if not all the details.

    NPR is already getting some bad publicity, no need for it to be worse by the inevitable confusion from the public.

    Re: NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns

    None of this surprises me. I am in an industry awash with liberals. Actually if one were conservative they just wouldn't get much work. I go the fundraisers and rallies and symposia with them. This is more of a business decision. Liberals as a rule do not play and work well with others. Well at least others that disagree with them. I'm not a liberal. I'm not a conservative.

    In my personal experience, liberals are every bit as racist, or what would be considered racist by most, as any tea-partier or conservative or redneck goatroper. They don't consider it racism because it is not against certain races. I love how they pick and choose. It's a scream.
