    Anyone that watches these videos and thinks this guy did anything wrong simply because they edited the **** out of it is a moron, and that goes to all of the people at NPR that fired this guy too. My only possible conclusion that I can draw from this is that the conservatives that believe this video without realizing that it has been edited past the point of reality really don't care about the truth. They don't mind if they follow liars, which makes me curious as to why you, BarB, have said that it's the liberals that are without morals. Take a look in the mirror sometime.
    I was for defunding NPR long before this little episode. The country is broke. They can get advertizers or donors just like everyone else.
    They employee all liberals as far as I can tell. The unedited version gave more context, but that's all. He called the tea party racists, he said there weren't enough elites. He's an arrogant bastard who probably didn't deserve to be let go.
    However, these days there is no need for goverment funded radio or TV. Plus, we can't afford every little pet project anymore. Let Soros up his contributions. NPR and PBS will be fine.

    I agree with you. I don't think NPR should get public funding. With that said, everyone, conservative and liberal, should be able to tell James O'keefe to jump off a bridge next time he does one of these things. He's dishonest.

    Besides that, You keep saying he called the tea party racists. It's not very clear that he did in the full video. Even the blaze admits that.

    PS... your little Soros quip at the end makes you sound like a loon. Adults really shouldn't believe in the boogy-man.

    Yep. If Scott Baker did something scummy, it would be all about "Glenn Becks Blaze" "Glenn Beck's employee"

    However, I give Kudos to the NYT for giving Beck some credit. I don't know how the rest of the media is handling it, but I hope as fair as the NYT.

    Well the reason I asked the question was that I didn't really see Beck doing any of the analysis of the video, but this Scott Baker guy (who I have never heard of until today).

    I don't know if you mean that you don't believe Soros funds them or are just making fun of me. He is a spooky dude as Beck calls him and I am wary of anyone he funds. However, here's a link to his last known donation to NPR, in Oct. a few days before Juan was fired and during a time Soros was in a real battle with Beck and Fox.

    George Soros Buys 100 NPR

    With Grant, NPR to Step Up State Government Reporting

    NPR has received a $1.8 million grant from the Open Society Foundations to begin a project called Impact of Government that is intended to add at least 100 journalists at NPR member radio stations in all 50 states over the next three years.

    I'm sure Soros gives them donations but if you honestly think that he gave money and then said "I want Juan Williams out of here and I want you to trash fox news" then I reserve the right to say that you sound like a loon. Sorry, that's just me being honest.

    I don't think Soros said he wanted that. He gave them the money because they were already on "his side". Soros says Fox News is like Orwell's Newspeak. You honestly think Soros wants that to continue? He's made a concerted effort to demean Fox News and try to get sponsors and viewers to boycott Glenn Beck and all of Fox. To say that he isn't anti-Beck and anti-Fox and is doing all that he can to get them off the air makes one sound uneducated on what Soros has said and done. Sorry, that's just me stating the facts.

    A person having a point of view isn't the same thing as the evil boogieman sort of things that many ascribe to him.

    You're completely lost. Let's sort this out.

    You stated one fact. That he called Fox News "Orwell's Newspeak". Other than that it was all opinion or questions. When you learn the difference between opinion and facts maybe you'll become better at debating and probably be less entertained by Beck...

    Soros is liberal. I think that goes without saying.

    He donates money, I'm not sure how much and to every place he donates, but for a fact some of it goes to Media Matters, some to NPR, other causes.

    He doesn't like Fox. No surprise there. Glenn Beck and other right wingers have dragged the guy through the mud for what he had to do as a child which had absolutely nothing to do with how he is as a man or what is currently going on in our society. Glenn Beck has painted him to be some mastermind that is trying to purposefully destroy the country. After that Soros came out and compared Fox News to Nazi's and Orwell. Can you blame the guy for getting pissed?

    Show me exactly what he is doing to get Glenn Beck and Fox off the air. He donates money to media matters and I know they started something a while back to boycott Beck sponsors but they nor Soros did anything wrong in that respect. We have no proof he made them do it and there is nothing illegal or really nothing wrong with boycotting something you disagree with. I don't watch Beck's show cause I don't like him. I don't go to the oil change place down the road cause I don't get good service there. They threaten to not buy stuff from people that sponsor someone that they consider a serial liar and manipulator.

    In essence you just turned "well he donates lots of money to liberal groups and is a liberal" to "he's a rich liberal that want's to silence opposition and take down america and turn us towards socialism and take Fox off the air. That is a fact."

    In the real world Mellie, you're opinion doesn't count as fact. Show me where he's actually tried to take Fox news off the air or has threatened Glenn Beck or has planned on ruining the country or anything like that...
