    NPR, Please Meet The Fork Which Is About To Be Stuck Into You Because You Are Done

    NPR, Please Meet The Fork Which Is About To Be Stuck Into You Because You Are Done

    Can it get any worse for NPR?  H/t to my readers for alerting me to this video in the NPR Sting, Part 2, via The Daily Caller:

    New video released Thursday afternoon indicates National Public Radio intended to accept a $5 million donation from fictitious Muslim Brotherhood front group Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust – and that the publicly funded radio network might have helped MEAC make the donation anonymously to protect it from a federal government audit.

    When a man posing as Ibrahim Kasaam asked, “It sounded like you were saying NPR would be able to shield us from a government audit, is that correct?” NPR’s senior director of institutional giving, Betsy Liley, responded, “I think that is the case, especially if you are anonymous. I can inquire about that.” According to conservative James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas organization conducted the NPR sting organization, the man posing as Kasaam made two follow-up phone calls to Liley after their lunch.

    Liley said a $5 million donation would amount to about “10 years of support.”

    Kasaam follows up by asking: “The fact that NPR is not only a tax-exempt organization, but also receives direct contributions from the government — does that invite some sort of government oversight or government examination of contributions, et cetera?”

    Liley answered: “They have audited our programs at times and, I think, as part of that, they can look at our audited financials. If you are concerned in any way about that, that’s one reason you might want to be an anonymous donor. And, we would certainly, if that was your interest, want to shield you from that.”

    Professor,

    I think the delicious anticipation I feel waiting to see one of your funny post titles on a big story is not unlike what a 14 year-old-girl must have felt in 1964, walking to the record store to buy The Beatles' just-released, latest record.

    It's only going to get better! PBS played Candid Camera, too.
    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to take Muslim Brotherhood money!
    With apologies to Sir Walter Scott.

    Who would have guessed that three separate people involved in the same deal would misspeak on the same day. What are the odds? Naturally, none of them meant any of the things they said. They were just trying to close a deal.

    *******************

    No point firing anymore people now. What could they possibly say at the firing? Another bad apple who doesn't represent the values and culture of NPR? Hardy-har-har! The only thing left for them to do is to announce that they are all going home to work on their resumes.

    I love the smell of a good cat-and-mouse game in the morning. It smells like victory.

    "Mr. O'Keefe added there were more communications with NPR that he planned to release soon, depending on the network's response to the latest materials. 'What they have omitted is the steps they took to work with us,' Mr. O'Keefe said. "
