Fired NPR CEO: Media Establishment ‘Terrified’ of Being Next Sting Target

Fired NPR CEO Vivian Schilling went on to admit that the rest of the establishment is “terrified” of being the next NPR, Planned Parenthood or ACORN…and speculated that the goal of these stings is to instill fear. “It’s terrifying,” Schiller said, that’s their “objective.”

Terrified? Hmmm. Now you know what it’s like to be in the Tea Party and listening to NPR, Ms. Schiller. Or worse, to be Israel.

Very curious. Why would anyone be afraid to be caught doing what they naturally do in the course of a work day? The only explanation that I can think of has to do with the nature of their “work”.. If candid examples of their true points of view and hidden prejudices are strikingly different than their “public” cantations, then I suppose they would be horrified to be “found out”. So sorry.

NPR senior exec offers to help shield Muslim Brotherhood front group from government audit

Project Veritas follows up on its first explosive video here. Watch for Betsy Liley to join the Schillers in the dustbin of history following these latest revelations of NPR executives’ eagerness to be a tool of the stealth jihad. Yet the Leftist/Islamic supremacist alliance is still firmly entrenched in the mainstream media, the academic establishment, and more. Maybe this will turn out to be the beginning of the end of it.

NPR- the depth of their Anti American effort is deeper than I imagined. They are actively encouraging enemies to do their deeds.. and promiste to give them cover. That’s it.. NPR is disgusting.

The NPR sting operation may lead to de-funding of this organization, and rightly so, because taxpayers’ money should not be used to pay for political bias.  But O’Keefe’s sting already brought something far more interesting than that.

One of the pillars of Progressivism is the notion that evil doesn’t really exist.  What we perceive as evil actions, we are told, stems from ignorance, poverty, social inequality, or any number of other factors beyond one’s control.  Once people are educated, given food and shelter, etc. they will surely abandon their wicked ways.  And if evil still makes the headlines, that’s simply because the rich have not been taxed enough yet and the schools have not gotten all their money.  And not everyone rides a bike to work yet.

Such a viewpoint can be disputed in a number of ways, but the corruption and bigotry of the high priests of this temple of knowledge, which NPR purports to be, is inexplicable, assuming the Progressive worldview.  Yet there it is in all its glorious pettiness.

But wait comrade, are the conservatives any better?  What about the bigotry and racism of the Tea Party?

But see, these are the unwashed, uneducated, backwater rednecks who, like Sarah Palin, never read anything, and they simply don’t know any better.  Sprinkle some perfume, give them a copy of the New Yorker, and you’ll surely pull them out of the swamp.  Give them a ride on a public train, and they’ll shine.

Well, no.  The correct answer came, two thousand years ago, from a Galilean carpenter, who never rode a public train or a bike.  One of the most educated men of his time, perhaps of all time, he knew where evil comes from: the man’s heart.  Rich or poor, educated or ignorant, we all are fallen human beings.

I am glad the NPR executives resigned from their posts.  They may now be ready to renew their membership in the fallen human race.

Media analyst: NPR likely in a ‘panic’ over funding

Russ Jones and Associated Press – 3/9/2011 7:00:00 AMBookmark and Share

NPR executive claims no need for public funding in the tape…and would allow them to be even more anti tea party without the funding.. SO BE IT!

Associated Press video buttonA media watchdog group believes today’s resignation of an NPR executive could be the final incident in a series of gaffs which leads to the de-funding of the network by the federal government.

 

 

The chief executive of National Public Radio has resigned under pressure after an undercover sting caught on tape the network’s vice president condemning conservatives. Vivian Schiller, the president and CEO of NPR, announced her resignation on Wednesday.
 
Her departure comes after NPR vice president Ron Schiller (no relation to Vivian Schiller) was videotaped with a hidden camera while dining over lunch with fictitious Muslim donors, claiming the tea party movement is racist and saying National Public Radio would be better off without federal funding.

Rich Noyes (Media Research Center)Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center (MRC) says NPR is most likely in full crisis mode.
 
“They are in something of a panic now over the status of their federal funding,” he offers. “I think they are probably less appalled by the disdainful and elitist remarks that their top fundraiser made about conservatives, about Christians, about the tea party [movement] — and probably horrified at his statement caught on tape that NPR would do better in the long run without federal funding.”
 
Noyes points out that Ron Schiller’s comments about federal funding come at a time Republicans are pushing for deep cuts to reduce government spending.
 
NPR logo“The attitude you saw from Ron Schiller about taxpayers and how they’re middle-American, gun-toting, racist people — this shows why taxpayers should not be forced to cough up money for NPR’s continued existence, particularly during a time of deep budget woes,” says MRC’s director of research
 
“If NPR didn’t have a big, fat target on it before, they certainly do now.”
 
The undercover video-op was masterminded by James O’Keefe, whose hidden-camera footage led to a similar controversy with ACORN in 2010.

 


From Associated Press

 

The latest round of conservative attacks on public broadcasting got fresh ammunition with the release of a hidden-camera video of an NPR executive calling the tea party racist and saying the network would be better off without federal money anyway.

 

The video was posted Tuesday by James O’Keefe, the same activist whose undercover videos have targeted other groups opposed by conservatives, like the community organizing group ACORN and Planned Parenthood.

 

It drew swift reaction from Republicans in Congress, who are renewing efforts to cut funding to public broadcasters. NPR and PBS have long been targets of conservatives who claim their programming has a left-wing bias. Similar efforts in the 1990s and 2005 were not successful, although public broadcasters take the threat seriously.

 

National Public Radio said in a statement that it was “appalled” by the comments from Ron Schiller, the president of NPR’s fundraising arm and a senior vice president for development.

 

Schiller informed NPR he was resigning from his position before the video was shot, NPR spokeswoman Dana Davis Rehm said Tuesday. He was expected to depart in May, but has now been placed on administrative leave.

 

O’Keefe, best known for hidden-camera videos that embarrassed the community-organizing group ACORN, posted the video Tuesday on his website, Project Veritas. The group said the video was shot on Feb. 22.

 

“We’ve just exposed the true hearts and minds of NPR and their executives,” O’Keefe said in a letter posted on the site. He asked supporters to sign a petition urging Congress to review NPR’s funding.

 

“This disturbing video makes it clear that taxpayer dollars should no longer be appropriated to NPR,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said in a statement. He added that executives have “finally admitted that they do not need taxpayer dollars to survive.”

 

The budget bill passed by the House last month would end funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which supports programs distributed on NPR and PBS. CPB is getting $430 million in the current fiscal year.

 

Attacks by conservatives on NPR gained momentum last year when analyst Juan Williams was fired for saying on Fox News that he feels uncomfortable when he sees people in “Muslim garb” on airplanes. Schiller defends the Williams firing in the video.

 

The heavily edited video shows Schiller and another NPR executive, Betsy Liley, meeting at a pricey restaurant in Washington’s Georgetown neighborhood with two men claiming to be part of a Muslim organization. The men offer NPR a $5 million donation. NPR said Tuesday it was “repeatedly pressured” to accept a $5 million check, which the organization “repeatedly refused.”

 

“The current Republican Party is not really the Republican Party. It’s been hijacked by this group that is … not just Islamophobic but, really, xenophobic,” Schiller said in the video, referring to the tea party movement. “They believe in sort of white, middle America, gun-toting — it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”

 

NPR receives about 2 percent of its revenue from federal grants, while its member stations get about 10 percent of their funding from federal and state governments.

 

“It is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without federal funding,” Schiller said, saying it would allow the organization to become an independent voice and clear up the misconception that it is largely government-funded.

 

Schiller conceded that if the funding were lost, “we would have a lot of stations go dark.”

 

NPR disavowed his statements.

 

“The assertion that NPR and public radio stations would be better off without federal funding does not reflect reality,” Davis Rehm said.

 

Sens. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., introduced a separate bill Friday to cut off funding for CPB.

 

“There’s two issues at stake here in regards to taxpayer funding for public broadcasting: We can’t afford it, and they don’t need it,” DeMint said in a statement Tuesday.

 

Schiller did not respond to a message left at his Aspen, Colo., home. His resignation from NPR was announced publicly last week and he has accepted a job as director of the Aspen Institute Arts Program. He is not related to NPR chief executive Vivian Schiller.

 

A national coordinator for the group Tea Party Patriots, Mark Meckler, wrote an e-mail to supporters about the video.

 

“At a time when the country is upside down by more than a trillion dollars, can we really afford to provide huge subsidies to entities that openly state that they don’t need the money?” he wrote. “Let’s take his advice and pass legislation that would defund the clearly biased news organization that is out of touch with Americans across the country.”

 

Through a publicist, O’Keefe agreed to respond to e-mailed questions but did not immediately reply.

 

Project Veritas identified the men who met with Schiller and Liley as Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar. Their assumed names were “Ibrahim Kasaam” and “Amir Malik,” and they claimed to represent the Muslim Education Action Center, a group they said had ties to the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood.

 

About the Williams firing, Schiller said, “What NPR did, I’m very proud of, and what NPR stood for is non-racist, non-bigoted, straightforward telling of the news.”

 

Liley says little in the video, although she can be heard laughing when one of the men says his group referred to NPR as “National Palestinian Radio.” NPR would not say whether any action was taken to address Liley’s comments or appearance in the video.

 

Now this is GOOD news! The exposure of NPR’s clearly anti-TEA party conservative bias .. and their embrace of Muslim Brotherhood.. was another stroke of genius and imaginative investigating. This young guys is whipping main stream “investigative” reporters at every turn. Makes you appreciate how NON investigative reporters really are..despite their self described moniker.
