    (AP) -- NPR president and CEO Vivian Schiller resigned Wednesday in the wake of comments by a fellow executive that angered conservatives and renewed calls to end federal funding for public broadcasting. The chairman of NPR's board of directors announced that he has accepted Schiller's resignation, effective immediately. NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik said in a tweet that Schiller was forced out by the board. On Tuesday, conservative activist James O'Keefe posted a hidden-camera video in which NPR executive Ron Schiller bashed the tea party movement as "racist" and "xenophobic" and said NPR would be better off without federal funding....
  • Statement from WMAL regarding Fred Grandy - March 5, 2010 (Dhimmi Station Issues Weasel Words Again)

    Statement from WMAL regarding Fred Grandy - March 5, 2010 WMAL did not terminate Fred Grandy's employment, and never had any intention to do so. Fred informed us on March 2 of his intention to resign from the station. To be clear, at no time has WMAL told Fred that he was not allowed to discuss his views on Islam over the air. In fact, he has done so on numerous occasions. Further, WMAL has not been contacted by any organization seeking to restrict his broadcasts. Bryan Nehman continues to anchor our morning program and in the interim will be...

    Demonstrations that began with quiet determination on the Internet more than three weeks ago erupted into riotous jubilation Friday evening, moments after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced he would step aside. Protesters swarmed army tanks that had been deployed to keep order, banged drums, blew whistles and frantically waved the Egyptian flag in celebration. They danced in circles and chanted. Two men dropped to their knees and began to pray as soon as the news was announced. "Freedom!" crowds chanted outside the white carved walls of the presidential palace. "God is great," they shouted in Tahrir Square. The reaction was...

  • White House Energy 'Czar' to Exit in Staff Shake-Up

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 01/25/2011 | Laura Meckler
    Carol Browner is leaving her position as White House "energy czar," and a staff shake-up is likely to eliminate her post altogether, according to Democrats familiar with events. The czar position, and Ms. Browner herself, have been lightning rods for critics of the president's environmental-policy agenda and a reassurance to its supporters, who liked having a top official in the White House devoted to their priorities. The White House health czar position may also be eliminated, said people familiar with the process. Ms. Browner led the administration's effort to gather votes in Congress for legislation to limit emissions of greenhouse...

  • WikiLeaks Fallout: Should Hillary Clinton Resign?

    Should Hillary Clinton resign as secretary of state due to the WikiLeaks revelations? My friend Jack Shafer at Slate makes a good case. His reason: Clinton, like predecessor Condoleezza Rice, signed orders instructing U.S. foreign service officers to spy on the diplomats of other nations. Cables went out under her name telling State Department officials overseas to collect the fingerprints, facial images, DNA, and iris scans of African leaders, to obtain passwords, credit card numbers, and frequent flyer accounts used by foreign diplomats, and to gather private information on United Nations officials, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

    David Cameron's Conservative coalition government took the bull by the horns last month and announced cuts of 82 billion pounds - a massive attack on the British welfare state. Predictably, the outcry from unions, and others affected has been something to behold. Time Magazine details the latest: "All the ingredients appear to be in place for a winter - and possibly even spring and summer - of unrest, as British students, workers and families start feeling the effects of the massive £82 billion ($148 billion) worth of cuts to public spending announced by the coalition government last month. There has...

    While his party basked in the afterglow of a historic House victory, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) announced he would resign as House Republican Conference Chairman, and Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling threw his hat in the ring. Hensarling, who has led the conservative Republican Study Committee, quickly won the endorsement of incoming Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the likely incoming majority leader. The Cantor backing gives Hensarling a huge boost for the leadership job, which is seen as a stepping stone to higher slots in the GOP hierarchy. “Today, I was saddened to learn that my dear friend Mike Pence has chosen not...
  • DC public schools head Michelle Rhee announces resignation

    The head of the D.C. public school system says she is resigning. Michelle Rhee made the announcement at a news conference Wednesday. She says the thought of not being chancellor anymore is "heartbreaking." Rhee took over one of the worst urban school systems in the country in 2007 with a mandate from Mayor Adrian Fenty to improve them. Since then, she has arguably improved test scores but also angered many with teacher layoffs, firings and a brusque style. Rhee's departure is not surprising since she campaigned for Fenty, who lost his re-election bid in a September primary. Fenty says Rhee...

    Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said in a letter to priests in his archdiocese that Auxiliary Bishops Eamonn Walsh and Raymond Field will remain in their jobs but will be given "revised responsibilities". The bishops presented their resignations to Pope Benedict XVI in December following a judge's damning report on the Dublin archdiocese that found the Catholic Church concealed the abuse of children by priests for three decades. In the letter he said: "Following the presentation of their resignations to Pope Benedict, it has been decided that Bishop Eamonn Walsh and Bishop Raymond Field will remain as auxiliary bishops." The archbishop said...

    National Journal's Victor will have the scoop in tomorrow's edition of the National Journal magazine that Obama economic adviser Christina Romer is quitting the post.
