What do you have against O’Keefe? He exposed the frauds committed by ACORN

NPR Guy... It's (the GOP) been hijacked by this group (Tea Party)

Is that not a bit pollitically incorrect to say hijacked to muslims?

Defund now.

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.

I quit contributing years ago. Maybe more of us need to cut him off at the wallet.

You know it!

The proof of that is that they dominate the NY Times.

This is from the Aspen Institute website announcing Schiller's appointment there. I wonder if they are having any buyer's remorse?

“fanatically involved in people’s personal lives”

For one thing, it’s a total and complete lie.

Personal freedom is an article of faith for genuine conservatives.

This is great and well worth the watching! Look for NPR Fund’s president, Schiller, to resign or be fired. This gives a lot of ammunition to the Republican’s efforts to defund NPR. James O’Keefe, again doing the work of investigative reporting that “real” journalists are supposed to do.

It’s best to avoid libs completely until such time as economic decline shocks them into some semblance of reality.

I don’t see NPR saying they will take any action against the lib chick in the video.

What is hard to grasp is how James O’Keefe could make anybody believe he is Muslim. The kid practically has the map of Ireland on his face.

Of course, I couldn’t see him as a pimp either.

Goes to show you, leftists have a very tenuous grip on reality. They must have to will themselves to believe the nonsense they do. Of course, they live in a bubble and have a vast support group to keep them mired in their fantasies.

Just anounced on Rush - Schiller has been let go from NPR, and they were “apalled” by his comments.

This Schiller guy is a homo, too. .

If that's true, does Schiller think he'll do well under Sharia law?

They are saying he already resigned to take a job at a liberal think tank or some such.

"Mr. Schiller announced last week that he is leaving NPR for another job."

I think the timing of his resignation corresponds to the moment he realized he was duped.
