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

Beside being utterly, coma-inducing boring. Can't wait for the next story about a tree-kissing leftist living in the woods trying to find out if most earthworms are left- or right-"handed."

I think the most amazing thing is that Schiller said that PBS could survive very well in the long run without federal funding. That’s all you really need to know to take it out of the budget.

I’ve enjoyed a lot of public programming over the years, I’ll admit it. But I’d enjoy it more if it didn’t cost the taxpayers money, and it competed on an even footing with National Geographic, Discovery, etc., and didn’t wear the mantle of government endorsement for its views.

How about a new name?
Liberal
Elite
Service
Broadcasting
“Information”
And
“News”

Later in the lunch, Schiller explains that NPR would be better positioned free of federal funding. “Well frankly, it is clear that we would be better off in the long-run without federal funding,” he says. “The challenge right now is that if we lost it all together we would have a lot of stations go dark.”

As you wish Mr. Schiller. The Republicans had better grant him this wish.

I wonder if this guy will even last the day.

exactly
military, media, teachers elected officials every where there is a group you will see homosexuals wanting to get in, give promotions and then push their own agenda.

I would not have believed it unless I saw it but when I read the rules of the communist manifesto I was astounded to what they are doing and have been for decades.

The NPR (National Public Radio) executive is an anti-Semite, anti-Christian and anti-TeaParty. Oh, and he seems to hate Republicans.

One of the soooooo open minded elite liberals... Open minded toward the Muslim Brotherhood...

Doesn't seem to like Israel - says newspapers are owned by Jews...and that's why they're biased

He bashes Juan Williams

If this wasn't on video I would find it hard to believe. They're the haters.

A must see to believe ping.

I’ve found that most of the far left are really thick.
When I’ve questioned them about what they stand for , whether debt, islam, etc they have no clue.

It all comes down to them bumper sticker slogans.
Take for example in my state they’re having awake the state rally/protests.
When I asked them about why they use socialist logo’s, would you do cuts in if you’re in debt or keep spending or even if all companies were thrown out of America lie some wanted they thus millions losing their jobs , then they could not answer.

Even basic questions like why do you call blacks Africans Americans when whites can be African and African American.?
Or.
Scott lied jobs died, when questioned how many jobs they have no clue.
They just look really dumb and have no clue what to say

Quite honestly I’ve many who went to college and come out as liberals are really thick.

It’s like they were brainwashed with slogans but never have been taught to think for themselves.
It’s one of the biggest differences I have found between the right and left since I came to this country.
The right can think for themselves and question. The left seem to only repeat slogans, get given signs, told where to go and what to shout.

Quite sad really that there are so many thick dumb idiots .

Wow, this video is unbelievable. To hear him lecture about intolerance and anti-intellectualism in Americans to those openly advocating Sharia is a sure sign of mental illness. The coup de grace is perhaps when he analogizes their alleged lack of media influence to a time when women were underepresented. Using the "women's rights" analogy in a Sharia law conversation...SHARIA. MADNESS.


Intellectualism.

They not only need to be defunded but the deductability of contributions needs to be removed as they are obviously a political organization.

Good point. I would also add that any grants for programming from National endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities (I would dump both of those boondoggles).

I think when they talk about $90 mil in Government funding they are referring to direct funding, not other funds that find its way to NPR through other bureaucratic channels. I think tax payer funding would really be at least twice what is being talked about.
