Skip to comments.NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns After Board Decides She Should Go
Posted on 03/09/2011 9:12:29 AM PST by Nachum
NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned, NPR just announced. This follows yesterday's news that then-NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller (no relation) was videotaped slamming conservatives and questioning whether NPR needs federal funding during a lunch with men posing as members of a Muslim organization (they were working with political activist James O'Keefe on a "sting.") Vivian Schiller quickly condemned Ron Schiller's comments, and he moved up an already-announced decision to leave NPR and resigned effective immediately.

Who needs a psychiatrist now, Viv?
Another media type who squirmed when the spotlight turned on her. Her belligerent ‘let me pass’ on-street interview was a notable low.
Note that DC types, especially liberals, will jump before being pushed because they know another do-nothing job on the public dole is around the corner.
I wonder if she still sports that condescendingly smug smirk.

NPR chief asks critics: What liberal bias? By Sara Jerome - 03/07/11 01:42 PM ET
NPR Chief Executive Vivian Schiller defended taxpayer funding for public broadcasting Monday and challenged critics to find any evidence of liberal bias in NPRs coverage.
No relation to Ron? BS. Two Christian haters. Funding needs to be cut off for NPR - it is a hate group.
Man I hope Mr. O’Keefe has hired some bodyguards because at the rate he’s taking down these slimeball liberals, he will certainly be targeted.
They don’t get it.
They never will get it.
Time to cut the funding.
Time for Viv to consult HER psychiatrist or publicist.

Not related , but share a special bond now.
Why do I have the feeling there is more to this story?
Just wondering why our 'Republican' law makers are not doing their job & exposing what is going on with the liberal lefts redistributing tax payer money for their propaganda agenda!!
Good question...O'Keefe has more brass than the members of the House. Congressmen are pathetic.
I had a similar experience...i was working for a complete jerk, and could not stand it anymore. I went up to him and told him, “ this just ain’t workin’ out. Today is my last day”. He then told me, “No, you fired” ( he was a foreigner )..i said, no, i just quit. and he said, no, i fire you....i just did a facepalm and walked out...
How ya like us now Viv?
