Flashback: NPR Fires a Top Black Manager (NPR CEO hates black people...)
Maynard Institute ^ | 10/16/109 | Richard Prince

Posted on 10/21/2010 1:39:22 PM PDT by jimbo123

Less than 24 hours after hosting the National Association of Black Journalists at its headquarters in Washington, National Public Radio let go the black journalist in charge of its newscasts, Greg Peppers, one of two black men in newsroom management at the network.

Peppers, who has been with NPR since the 1980s, was escorted out of the building Friday, colleagues said. He was executive producer of NPR's newscast unit.

She suggested psychiatric examination for such
uppity blacks. NPR should remove the hateful, racist CEO.

You are so right jimbo, her bigoted hate for black people is just astonishing. I see a huge law suit in the making.

Williams is just another black democrat that committed the HORRIBLE thought crime of stepping off the Democrat Plantation. The totalitarians always come down hardest on their own dissenters.

It was worse than firing a black man. He had talked about his Faith and how it had helped him.

He was a black Christian,,two strikes against him. If he had been an eagle scout, they would have had a trifecta to fire him for.

That’s probably why the poster put “Flashback” in the title. ;)

Thanks jimbo123, who asks:
Pattern of discrimination by NPR CEO Vivian Schiller. Why does she hate black people?
The answer to that question will probably remain a secret kept between her and her psychiatrist.

FLASHBACK

http://journalism.indiana.edu/uncategorized/schiller-responds-to-audience-qa/

Schiller responds to audience questions
Jessica Birthisel | Oct. 20, 2009
National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller spoke Oct. 19 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater as the School of Journalism’s second Speaker Series guest. Below are highlights from the question and answer session with the audience that followed the talk.

EXCEPT

Q: What are the implications of having NPR correspondents and contributors such as Cokie Roberts and Juan Williams participate on other news stations like ABC and Fox News, respectively?

Some such journalists, like Roberts, are employed equally by both companies and therefore present no ethical problems. For others, she said, the situation is “a tricky one that we are wrestling with.” On the one hand, these appearances are promotion for NPR. On the other, she is not in favor of reporters expressing their opinions publicly. Additionally, NPR journalists often represent “the left” in topic debates, a representation she said she’s not comfortable with.

Margret Sanger was no friend to people of colour and one of her primary reasons for planned parenthood was to limit the number of children born to minorities by abortion of undesireables.

NPR is ran my the modern day equivalent of her.

Of course she has no problem accepting big bucks from a self admitted Nazi collaborator.

They were fans of the eugenics thing too.

“Do NPR’s conflict of interest standards apply to journalists who give to NPR and are fans of it?”

Viv couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

Juan is suing them.
This will be a very telling piece of evidence.
Especially when Needa Totebag and Andre Cantrescue are still there...........

It’s par for the course -
leftists view blacks as inferior and in need of leftist help just to get along in a “white” society.

My FNC colleague James Rosen just emailed this....the NPR internal memo on Juan Williams


To: AREPS

Subject: [areps] Juan Williams

Dear AREPS,

Thank you for all of your varying feedback on the Juan Williams situation. Let me offer some further clarification about why we terminated his contract early.

First, a critical distinction has been lost in this debate. NPR News analysts have a distinctive role and set of responsibilities. This is a very different role than that of a commentator or columnist. News analysts may not take personal public positions on controversial issues; doing so undermines their credibility as analysts, and that’s what’s happened in this situation. As you all well know, we offer views of all kinds on your air every day, but those views are expressed by those we interview – not our reporters and analysts.

Second, this isn’t the first time we have had serious concerns about some of Juan’s public comments. Despite many conversations and warnings over the years, Juan has continued to violate this principal.

Third, these specific comments (and others made in the past), are inconsistent with NPR’s ethics code, which applies to all journalists (including contracted analysts):

“In appearing on TV or other media . . . NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist. They should not participate in shows . . . that encourage punditry and speculation rather than fact-based analysis.”

More fundamentally, “In appearing on TV or other media including electronic Web-based forums, NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist.”

Unfortunately, Juan’s comments on Fox violated our standards as well as our values and offended many in doing so.

We’re profoundly sorry that this happened during fundraising week. Juan’s comments were made Monday night and we did not feel it would be responsible to delay this action.

This was a tough decision and we appreciate your support.

Thanks,

Vivian

Vivian Schiller

President & CEO, NPR

Exactly. They should only have the opinions NPR ‘gives’ them.
