Skip to comments.NPR Videos Are Not What They Seem
Posted on 03/13/2011 8:45:25 AM PDT by Nachum
It looks like James OKeefes Project Veritas may have some splaining to do after an analysis by The Blaze reveals some selective editing of the recently released NPR videos. The most damning video was the one where now former NPR executive Ron Schiller was quoted as calling the Tea Partiers as racists. However a further look at the raw footage shows that Schiller was actually discussing what an Republican Ambassador was saying.

What do Dems think of the Blaze as it is affiliated with both Glenn Beck and the Huffington Post. Quite the conundrum for liberals eh?
Nachum: great minds ... here’s another article about this smoke-screen:
At least now we know what it takes for AIM to engage in some serious in-depth analysis.
Okay, okay. You got 'im. Go ahead and take the money.
Reading the comments:
“I have to disagree with you on your analysis. He says the Republican(s) voted for Obama because of the Tea Party people.
Not possible. The Tea Party movement didnt begin until well after Obama took office. The Republican(s) would have voted against McCain, a moderate Republican who they would surely have been symapthetic with.
Outside of Palin, there was little in the way of conservative voice in that campaign, but Schiller claims the ambassador said, they think the current Republican party is not really the Republican Party. Its been hijacked by this group Yet, Schiller never mentions Palin, and there was no Tea Party at the time, i.e. no group tht could have hijacked the McCain campaign.
Furthermore, Schiller refers specifically to the Tea Party in his description, and the Tea Party could not possilblynot possiblyhave been part of the conversation to which Schiller refers. No, when Schiller speaks, hes giving his own evaluation.”
“Let me get this straight, the Republicans ..an ambassador so, a very highly placed Republican another person, who was one of the top donors to the Republican party., both voted for Obama because they knew about Tea Party which had not formed in November 2008?”
“Let me get this straight, he repeated what he alledgedly heard from two republicans in order to support an opinion that he did not hold? That doesnt sound accurate to me. That sounds like left wing spin.”
I didn’t know that the folks over at AIM could cogently write while entertaining gerbils into their back doors. I am impressed.
O’Keefe released the entire raw video.
Besides the worst bigotry was when the NPR thug said that the Jews owned the media.
Then Shiller should have fought it. But he didn’t. So, I have to believe that there is truth in the video. :)
When does CPB/NPR/state-run media ever do that?
There were 2 commies on CNN just now trying to claim NPR is not Liberal. Pathetic.
It would be interesting to see if there are Journolist emails on this Okeef attack.
what is a “Republican Ambassador”?
Ha! JournoList indeed ...
Time Magazine continues with their own contrail plumes of Journolisto smoke...
The Twisty, Bent Truth
of the NPR-Sting
Ok, then why did he quit?
I’m glad to see Glenn’s site STANDING WITH THE TRUTH... which, has NO agenda.
I think it's the same thing as a straw dog or a red herring or a Unicorn. Something made up out of whole cloth.
If this mythical "Republican Ambassador" really existed, why doesn't National Palestinian Radio (their own words for their network according to Schiller) name him?
When have they ever shied away from identifying Republicans whom they want to embarrass?
That is twisted, and I’m ashamed at myself for finding it so funny.
“At least now we know what it takes for AIM to engage in some serious in-depth analysis.”
Fairly startling, isn’t it? AIM started the whole media watchdog business from a conservative perspective. They were eclipsed years ago, first by Bozell and now Breitbart, so are probably busy trying to stay relevant.
Oops. Try again, Accuracy In Media.
Scottie: He’s dead, Jim.
It’s fairly clear from the full transcript that Schiller’s last words: “I mean, its pretty scary. Theyre seriously racist, racist people.”, were his own thoughts, not a quotation from someone else.
I agree. If you read the transcript, the offensive language was after the part of the conversation regarding the ambassador and was clearly schiller’s own opinion.
Correct, the Tea Party movement began on April 15, 2009, in response to the spending and bailout fever in Washington DC and the Obummer Administration. The CNBC (I think that was that channel) business guy Rick Santelli called for a Tea Party and he got one!!! In my opinion Rick is the Grandfather of the Modern Tea Party Movement.
I was at my first rally on that day and I haven’t stopped yet!!!
THEN WHY DID HE RESIGN??
All this shows is that given enough time you can come up with a better answer...
Their initial reaction is what is the most telling
In fact, I have long contended that every conservative submitting to an interview with any of the MSM talking heads should make it a pre-condition that they have the absolute right to copy and publish any portions of the interview that the MSM talking heads leave on the cutting room floor.
Its time we give NPR a FREEPING like theyve never had before!!!
Comment on their story here:
Back in the day when Dobson was head of Focus on the Family he insisted that his own FOTF crew also film every media interview and have the right to publish any ‘corrections’ that were needed.
That quickly put an end to lies being published about him.
So what? We’ve known for some time there’s lots of Democrats in the Republican party. We call ‘em RINOs.
My best guess is that Schiller is something like the stereotype of a used car salesman. He tells his guests whatever he thinks they want to hear and makes up stuff on a moment’s notice.
I kinda doubt the alleged conversation even occurred or that these GOP guys who confided in him even exist. Regardless, I dont think the blaze analysis is fair. It sounds like the “what the GOP guys told me” part ends with their claim to have voted for Obama.
1) Why were two NPR execs meeting with sworn enemies of the U.S., Israel and the West, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, in view of accepting a $5 million donation? Why were they doing that in the first place?
(heres the declared jihad): http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/4650.htm
2) Why did NPR lie in their first cover story, saying they never were going to accept the check?
3) Why did NPR conspire to conceal this from the public and the government?
4) Why did Ron Schiller launch into an anti-Semitic rant?
5) why did Betsy Liles laugh and say I like that! when people she thought were our enemies called NPR National Palestinian Radio?
6) Do they think were stupid?
Defund. Audit. Investigate. Incarcerate.
Interesting that anyone could claim to know this, besides him and his group.
If this is true then they are easily a target for wrongful termination and O’Keefe is in for a trial for libel.
I call BS.
Well-stated post and closing action items worth repeating.
