When any one of these partisan left NPR people has to fall on the sword for some indiscretion another left-masquerading entity like The Aspen Institute opens their door for them. Soros is the tie that binds this crap together. You may have not read the link sources.

    Something else that puzzles me. You don't seem bothered at all by the reality that a left-leaning "public" corporation receives federal("public") funding under false premises? When I post on a topic I try not to lay out the obvious, not wanting to limit the reader's peception so they will make their own conclusions, but there was more here than the single issue you addressed.

    All Things Considered I'd say that removing their tax-exempt status and federal funding should be a top agenda item. If what they do is so important it can vie for commercial support on the open "private corporation" marketplace of ideas.
    They are a left-leaning organization because one person who works there is liberal? So, you're telling me, the only way a trustworthy organization can exist is if they hire neutral-bots: a series of politically neutral robots that are able to run a news radio station? I'm sure none of us were aware of these stipulations and we will work harder to provide a news station that is run by robots who have no political leanings.

    If you can't see the difference between law enforcement doing these kind of things focused on criminals and random bloggers doing it to target political opponents and with a definitive political agenda then I don't really know what to say to you.

    I just know that Zyphlin appreciates you jumping in for him, but since you have offered YOUR opinion you may want to step back and view the CPB/PBS/NPR history. You do, btw, realize that CPB is the umbrella organizaton under whose aegis NPR functions don't you? And that they enjoy an IRS 501-C-3 "tax-exempt" status?
    In my OP I alluded to only one 'other' incident, the infamous and recent Juan Willaims affair. In that one another left-leaner fell upon her sword for the old team, Vivian Schiller...numero uno. Point of information to you on that incident pal. Within 48 hours of the Williams firing Georgie 'Death Camp Assistant' Soros gave $1.8 billion dollars to NPR. Isn't that a remarkable coincidence! I digress though. That Juan Williams thingy along with this incident and CEO Ron Schiller, numero dos, I have already demonstrated three left-leaners for you, two named Schiller and one named Betsy Liley, numero tres. If you hadn't gone off again half-cocked you wouldn't have read most all of that and I wouldn't have to reprise it for you here and waste everyone's time. I could enlighten you to a greater "culture of coruption" as your Dame Pelosi would say, but we'd stray far afield then and OFF-TOPIC wouldn't we.




    So, you're telling me, the only way a trustworthy organization can exist is if they hire neutral-bots: a series of politically neutral robots that are able to run a news radio station? I'm sure none of us were aware of these stipulations and we will work harder to provide a news station that is run by robots who have no political leanings.
    Just some informal, neighborly advice you seriously may wish to consider. I'm relatively new here, but have noticed that you have a consistency of habit of coming to the table of debate ill-informed. This hapless and gratuitous indulgence in what you think is effective sarcasm again marks you as ill-prepared. I hate to have to observe that.
    FACT> What I'm telling you is that NPR as a branch of PBS enjoys a special tax-exempt status (IRS Code 501(c)(3)), one BIG advantage it has over it's "private sector" counterparts and "public funding" by federal appropriation, another BIG advantage over those same "private sector" counterparts. In exchange for such benevolence, in what would otherwise be a level private/public playing field, they are obligated to be NON-political in their production, direction and presentation of programming. Have you got all that? Sadly they have a miserable record of being left-leaning and in 2006 an attempt to revoke their special IRS status and government funding was made. Alas! With a demonRATic congress in session in that second Little Georgie-boy Bush term it failed. Somehow I don't think that effort will cease.
