Skip to comments.NPR: Sorry About the Story Linking Christian Group to Anthrax (flashback)

Six months after the fact, the head of National Public Radio apologized Wednesday for what some lawmakers called a "slanderous" report linking anthrax-laced letters to a Christian conservative organization.
"We have made mistakes at NPR. One mistake was our report about TVC," said Kevin Klose, president and CEO of the public broadcasting radio network, referring to a story that suggested the Traditional Values Coalition was connected to the attempted assassination of two senators.
"You have my personal apology for that mistake and I hope to go on from there," Klose said.
Klose's comments in a Wednesday House subcommittee hearing came after several Republican members implored NPR to apologize for a January news package that suggested that the conservative group, which represents 43,000 member churches, was connected to the anthrax letters sent last fall to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., and Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
The NPR story suggested that TVC "fit the profile" of groups that might have been responsible for those types of letters. Such letters were ultimately linked to the deaths of five Americans.

Why didn’t they fire THAT reporter?
npr can go bye-bye
One of the other mistakes is existing.
Hey,Schiller,you can shove your apology!
It fit the narrative.
After seeing that boss woman for NPR say what she said about Juan and his psychologist, and she had that smirk on her face. I don’t trust a damn thing these people say.
Crazy lefties. Lunatics of the first order.
It's time to call them out for what they are...
And force them into the free market....
See if they last any longer than Air America
Then sh*t-can the whole lot of them...
We. must. defund. NPR. I don’t care how much money they are taking from the government, it should be $0.
Was anyone fired? I doubt it. Business as usual for the commie leftists.
