Why is NPR still funded by taxpayers?


James O’Keefe has outed another organization for what it really is….not for what they have marketed themselves to be. Kudos to his efforts for continuing to expose the truth!

In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR’s director of institutional giving, are seen meeting with two men who, unbeknownst to the NPR executives, are posing as members of a Muslim Brotherhood front group. The men, who identified themselves as Ibrahim Kasaam and Amir Malik from the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, met with Schiller and Liley at Café Milano, a well-known Georgetown restaurant, and explained their desire to give up to $5 million to NPR because, “the Zionist coverage is quite substantial elsewhere.”

NPR is funded by taxpayer dollars yet, for years, has been a pseudo-mouthpiece for the Democratic party.  All the while NPR has proclaimed themselves as “neutral” and “middle of the road”.   Recently, from The Hill:

NPR Chief Executive Vivian Schiller defended taxpayer funding for public broadcasting Monday and challenged critics to find any evidence of liberal bias in NPR’s coverage

Schiller said the accusation that public broadcasting has a liberal bias is just a “perception problem” that doesn’t accurately reflect NPR’s journalism. 

Well, just about anyone paying attention or anyone not blinded by politically-correct charades have known for years that NPR has fully promoted the liberal agendas for years. So, Vivian, just because a liberal believes what they say doesn’t mean everyone else does.  Goodness, these people live in an alternate reality.

But….the truth always seems to come out and it has clearly shown its face today.  It is tough now to deny what most of us have known all along…….

From the Daily Caller:

A man who appears to be a National Public Radio senior executive, Ron Schiller, has been captured on camera savaging conservatives and the Tea Party movement.

The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian – I wouldn’t even call it Christian. It’s this weird evangelical kind of move,” declared Schiller, the head of NPR’s nonprofit foundation, who last week announced his departure for the Aspen Institute.

Balanced? Off-balance, I’d say….Oh, but there is more to clarify just whose side he is on…and tangentially, whose side NPR is on:

On the tapes, Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren’t “just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”Schiller goes on to describe liberals as more intelligent and informed than conservatives. “In my personal opinion, liberals today might be more educated, fair and balanced than conservatives,” he said.

As Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin put it:

They (NPR) don’t seem to have a problem accepting tax money from those gun-totin’ racists though, do they?

Watch the video:

Why on earth are we funding a so-called media organization anyway?  And now with clear proof that neutrality and real news is not an NPR staple, we need to pull the plug on taxpayer funding of NPR.

  1. O’Keefe is a demonstrated lying twit. His ACORN sting was proved to be a complete phoney and yet you have the temerity to regard this or anything else that comes from him as the “truth.” Your comment indicates that you have not bothered to look for the truth, or you just don’t care what that is.

  2. crs52,
    What proof do you have that O’Keefe’s ACORN sting was phoney? You failed to provide it.

    Besides, it isn’t hard to see the truth when it comes straight from the horses mouth..in this case, Mr. Ron Schiller.

  3. amusing. you tout the need to defund npr based off the comments of a single executive, as filmed by someone whose motives are understood by anyone with two brain cells as far less than pure. nevermind that this executive was immediately fired, a statement issued by the ceo denouncing his comments, and then the ceo herself resigning.

    do you have any solid evidence, any factual support for npr promoting “liberal agendas” besides this one incident and your bare intolerance for anything that doesn’t promote the conservative agenda? have you ever listened to npr? it’s the closest thing to actual news we have left; fox “news” and msnbc more and more resemble american idol rather than actual news outlets.

    but i suppose, to someone as far right as yourself, anything that isn’t far right-wing is going to appear liberal. god forbid there be gray, centrist areas.
