NPR Executives Caught On Video | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

Quote:
The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren’t “just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”
Well, since these two seem to think NPR should forgo federal funding and will be perfectly fine without it, I'd say this tape might be the nail in coffin.

Just listen to this guy as he talks about the American people - what a disgrace. This liberal, biased executive has been outed.

NPR reporters can be as biased and politically incorrect as they want off the air, as long as they try to maintain a sense of professional neutrality on the air, which I would say a good deal of them do. The same goes for any radio station or TV channel. Even reporters have their own opinions. Who knows what O'Reilly or Limbaugh say off-air? Who cares? They're entitled to their opinions. The only words we're allowed to hold them responsible for are the ones on air, and it's only the on-air words that count towards how biased or unbiased the station is.

In the meeting with the "brotherhood" boys, he is representing NPR.

Where is this rule written? This is damning evidence that there is a predetermined mindset at NPR (not to mention a snotty condescension and rank prejudice against those with whom your typical limousine liberal disagrees.) Limbaugh and O'Reilly are commentators, not reporters. NPR holds itself out to be an unbiased news organization. That is a steaming pile of doggie doots. We've long known it. This just reifies it.

Nothing to see here folks, just move along.

In the grand scheme of things the 90 million the gov. gives to NPR is a drop in the Obama debt bucket but I'm sure you could feed a lot of hungry children with 90 million a year.

Default NPR news, unbiased coverage

I like NPR news. It's straightforward, with no annoying commercial interruptions.

NPR is something I won't miss if it gets defunded. I could do without the annoying pronounciation of the word "reeeeeeely" (really) and countless sentences starting with the word: "So,". "Writer's Almanac" also gets on my nerves. Keillor loves to wax poetic on the sex lives of famous writers -- right about the time my kids come down for breakfast ...but I digress. Hilarious punking job by Project Veritas, though!

I really like some of the things the NPR directors said, esp. the part about being happier if they lost their tax payer funding.
Now let's encourage Congress to make them happy.

I don't care about their bias. Just as long as they don't do it on my dime.
