James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas have just released part two of their NPR investigation, which claims to show an NPR executive telling a fake Muslim donor how his group can be shielded from a government audit if it donates $5 million.

O’Leefe gave the website “exposenpr.com” and I cannot access it. Maybe it is overwhelmed right now.

O’Keefe is going to take the title “glorious bastard” right out from Rove’s feet.

That's one thing about O’Keefe, it's never just one punch at the bastards, he throws combinations.
NPR is probably wondering if he has anything else coming their way.

NPR KNOWS that there is more coming. The female shill who resigned yesterday had nothing to do with either of these first two installments ... she knows that there is much more devastating stuff that can be released and is soon to come.

Shoot - I meant to say that O’Keefe was just on Hannity - and stated flat out he had more to come out on NPR. After twisting his arm enough, Hannity also got him to admit (though he really didn’t want to) that he had videos with PBS on tap.

This is truly great and perfect timing.

Sure sounds like NPR was willing to report the news the way the donor requested.

NPR, Fair and Balanced.

I don’t know which person O’Keefe was talking to at NPR but he told Hannity that he specifically told NPR that their organization’s goal was to spread Sharia law throughout the world!

Again it just shows how corrupt our nation has become. Nations do not thrive long with all of this corruption.

Unbelievable!! Stunning revelations as just how corrupt NPR is and probably all the left wing news media. I hope everyone gets to hear this.

I am listening to the whole 44 minutes of taped phone calls, and it presents a whole different picture than that short video or the text.

I think everyone who want to ‘judge’ this event should at least first listen to the WHOLE THING.

I listened to the entire set of phone calls (44 minutes) and she said the EXACT OPPOSITE.

NOT AT ALL.

I listened to the entire set of calls, and I couldn't detect any corruption. It was obvious that the 'donor' didn't want to have any paperwork, and yet the NPR rep. kept insisting, right up until the end of the 44 minutes of conversation, that NPR would need a letter of intent, and some information as to the donor group's LEGAL STATUS.

The only thing he GOT out of her was that NPR would 'shield' it's donors from any investigation by the IRS into the NPR.

This is the status quo for any private group that receives donations.

Just like the MEDIA reporters are protected from revealing their sources.

Apparently it means I am the only one who has listened to the entire 44 minutes.

Shielding a donor from an IRS audit of the DONEE is something that most all Non-Profit Organizations do.

She kept insisting that this DONOR provide a letter of intent, and that NPR would want some documentation as to the DONOR'S LEGAL STATUS as a group, which would be kept confidential.

The FAKE donor kept insisting he didn't want to do those things, she insisted he would have to.

He inferred that he wouldn't donate if she required the paperwork, and right up to the very end, she insisted on it.

WHAT MORE would you have this woman do?

No one investigates liberals. The MSM either gives them passes or quickly condemns anyone who dares to raise a doubt about their ‘pure as the driven snow’ innocence.

It’s like a crime family that owns all the judges ( in this case - owns all the MSM). Here’s the newest youtube O’Keefe tape:

Go back and listen beginning at the 6.22 mark. Included in the next minute, Ibraham Kasaam asks Betsy Liley, Your saying that some people can actually support specific coverage of news?. To which Ms. Liley replies, Uh-huh.

While she hedges some in the following minute, that certainly sounds to me to be donor influenced news.

Now, tell me, how do you find the exact opposite?

Would you mind summarizing why it is a different picture?

One thought: If someone gives anonymously, and only the financial people know, not the editorial side, then how is that buying influence?
