    Thanks! Dana is a radio show host in St. Louis, a contributor on CNN and she's doing something with Glenn Beck soon. She was at a dinner with him and 3 other people last night. Something about the Insider Extreme anniversary tomorrow. She rocks.

    Here's a video of her on Anderson Cooper's show talking about Beck's 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally.

    RD, I'm not ignoring you. I just got home from work and you asked for a lot of information. I'm dog tired and just don't feel like looking up a bunch of Soros quotes at the moment. (He's kinda freaky if you've ever listened to him speak about what he thinks of himself and what he's done to different economies around the world.) I'll get back to that later when I'm not exhausted, hungry and crabby.

    Maybe the world isn't a TV western made up of "good guys" adn "bad guys."

    NPR wouldn't be the only victim. The GOP is trying to defund CPB, which includes NPR and PBS. Why should PBS be defunded just because the GOP has a bug up their ass over NPR?

    HAHA. I guess you didn't actually read The Blaze's analysis. Here you go:

    Of greater concern, though, is how the video is edited at this juncture.

    So after saying that the MEAC website advocates the “acceptance of Sharia,” the video cuts to the NPR exec saying, “Really? That’s what they said?” The cadence is jovial and upbeat and the narration moves on. The implication is that the NPR exec is aware and perhaps amused or approving of the MEAC mission statement. But when you look at the raw video you realize he was actually recounting an unrelated and innocuous issue about confusion over names in the restaurant reservation.

    Schiller’s negative comments about Republicans and conservatives have gotten a great deal of attention.

    He clearly says some offensive things, while being very direct that he is giving his own opinion and not that of NPR. Still — a wildly stupid move!

    But you may be surprised to learn, that in the raw video, Schiller also speaks positively about the GOP. He expresses pride in his own Republican heritage and his belief in fiscal conservatism.


    NPR exec Ron Schiller does describe Tea Party members as “xenophobic…seriously racist people.”

    This is one of the reasons why he no longer has a job!

    But the clip in the edited video implies Schiller is giving simply his own analysis of the Tea Party. He does do that in part, but the raw video reveals that he is largely recounting the views expressed to him by two top Republicans, one a former ambassador, who admitted to him that they voted for Obama.

    At the end, he signals his agreement. The larger context does not excuse his comments, or his judgment in sharing the account, but would a full context edit have been more fair?


    You may also have seen a section of the video where Schiller describes liberals as more educated than conservatives. But the raw video shows a section where Schiller is hesitant to criticize the education of conservatives and the other executive, Betsy Liley, is outspoken in her defense of the intellects of Fox News viewers.

    Anyone looking at the edited version of the Project Veritas video would be concerned about the conduct and views expressed by the NPR representatives. But should we also be concerned about the deceptive nature of some of the video’s representations? Some will say no — the end justifies any means, even if unethical. Others may be bothered by these tactics and view similar projects with a greater degree of skepticism.
    Glad to straighten that out for you. Anything else?

    Because the federal government has no business funding TV shows or radio programs.

    Is that in the Constitution? Could you show me that passage?

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    No, funding media is nowhere in the Constitution. That's the point.
