I don’t even know why there’s a question about dumping support for these leftist looneys. I’m really getting tired of going through this year after year.

NPR is decidedly anti-Christian, anti-Semetic, and anti-American . . . what’s the question? Dump ‘em.

Most of the media is liberal biased , why should NPR be any different?The problem is that public funds are helping support them. This needs to be stopped.

Just de-fund NPR and let a commercial enterprise do what they have failed to do. People said for a generation that without NPR there would be no ‘Educational Programming’ - ummm, how about Discovery, National Geographic, History Channel, Military Channel and the Nature Channel.

Any one of these does, for a profit, a better job in any given year, than NPR has done in it’s entire existance. And these companies do not have a gun to our head, demanding money.

fanatically involved in people’s personal lives

So, what's the difference between that, and total control of a person's health care? Or regulation of what lightbulbs they purchase?

I've had this conversation with many Liberals.

"You Republicans want to control everything about my life!"
"No, we just want to be left alone."
"No! You're nazis! You're all about control!"

The truth is that Liberals insist that abortion be freely available to all. They are willing impose confiscatory levels of taxation on people, tons of regulations, and all sorts of intrusive laws -- but they do not see themselves as controlling, so long as they allow abortion to exist.

On the other hand, Conservatives who want a truly limited federal government, low taxes, less regulation, and less oversight of what people can and cannot do -- such people are seen as control freaks because they want states to have the power to regulate abortion.

Very twisted view of the world.

I actually saw a commercial on TV, touting the “Opportunity” to have the president give a graduation speech at your high school. All you had to do was write an essay entitled “Why x High School deserves to have President Obama attend their Graduation”.

So, either the public schools are turning out students who have no idea how to read or write (a distinct possibility); or no one wants him in the neighborhood.

I bet Schiller isn’t feeling too chirpy today! I watched this earlier and it was great. Good to see James O’K. is still up to his great sting operations! I love that guy. Wonder whatever happened to Heather or whatever her name was from his first sting? Glad to see he didn’t let that little trouble down in LA stop him.

Well, good to have this exposed. It is very chilling, tho. At least ‘the elite lefties’ are poorly represented in our population. Universities should be closed.

Now James O’Keefe has been promoted to “conservative filmaker” by the old media?

The guy is quite a hero, actually. We need at least 1,000 more investigative journalists like him., on the streets, hungry for stories.

“flaming Christian conservative” = they say that like it’s a bad thing?

Can’t watch video - did the flaming liberal progressive “national public” radio executive take the muslim baksheesh?

Wow. This is going to be all over. Looks like O'Keefe has his stuff back to together after a few stupid stunts.

It is especially rich when this idiot tells us how Juan Williams just isn't NPR material (since they are all about reporting and objectivity), after going on at length about what a bunch of redneck, ignorant, gun-toting, racist hillbillies the Republican party is controlled by.

I Hope you have enjoyed your job, and it's relative anonymity Mr. Ron Schiller (any relation to Vivian Schiller?). As of today, you are famous, and soon likely to be unemployed.

Can't wait until the talk radio crowd gets going with this.

On the news today it was reported the WH has received a total of 14 applications to hear bambi speak at High School graduation. So they extended the application time.

the application instructions must be written above the 3rd grade level.

I’ll be laughing all the way to the post office to mail my taxes (not really) IF they played it LIVE ON TV in Congress, heck play it twice, both in the House and again in the Senate AND carry it on C-SPAN. You can bet we’ll be seeing it on FOX with the obligatory comments to whichever host by Juan himself. Bet we see it with Bret, BOR, Sean and Greta too over the next 4 nights.

” fanatically involved in people’s personal lives “

Yeah, like those fanatical Christians using the political process to make us use mercury filled lightbulbs, telling us how much water to use to flush the toilet, trying to tell us what we should and should not drive, what we should and should not eat, how much energy we can use and how we are to produce it, making us recycle or face fines, and the grandaddy of them all - taking control of our medical care system.

Those people just can’t seem to mind their own business, forcing their religious views on everyone else. They should keep their religion to themselves! If they want to do or not do those things, fine - be an example, but leave us alone.

Those fundamentalist evangelicals should just leave us alone!


wha? The Christian religion isn’t doing those things? Some other religion is?

nevermind...

Actually, it’s not that university = intellect. It’s “believing the way we do” = intellect. The university aspect just facilitates the brainwashing to believe the way they do.

There are plenty of people with “university” degrees that they insist are “stupid”, merely because they don’t hold the same humanist worldview.

If NPR is not defunded, its a sign our bureacracy is so entrenched that it can’t be removed and we are doomed. Seriously. There is no reason to fund this nonsense, even if they were the most patriotic government organization in America.

Schiller said that is what he is “most disappointed by in this country, which is that the educated, so-called elite in this country is too small a percentage of the population, so that you have this very large un-educated part of the population that carries these ideas.”

LOL No doubt this is an isolated view.
