    NPR, R.I.P.

    NPR, R.I.P.

    The Daily Caller has a video filmed by a group run by James O’Keefe in which the President of the NPR Foundation reveals the blatent biases of NPR and puts to rest any claim that NPR’s news operation is non-political.

    O’Keefe’s group presented itself to NPR as a Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organization interested in making a $5 million donation to NPR.

    The video truly is amazing.  There is so much in here.  From the “bitter clinger” type of language about uneducated middle class whites who love their guns, to the silence and nodding agreement when the supposed donors bash Israel and Jewish control of the media.

    Truly amazing.  The left colluding with the Islamists, on film.  But that’s just a wild conspiracy theory, right?

    I may have missed things in the video worth mentioning.  Please comment, with reference to the time in the video.

    CaptainObvious: I am interested in what you're saying, but I couldn't follow it completely. You were quoting things you believe that I am claiming, posing rhetorical questions, and giving answers you do and others you don't believe. And I don't understand some of your figures of speech. I want to let you have that free market argument with me. I need another version, sorry.

    I never said they'd asked the 'right' questions, just different questions.

    I actually don't think he should have been fired– but I did think it was risky to give cover to racism toward Arabs as though they are all extremists and threatening. And that it isn't a stretch to think some views would be as offended by that as you are by his disparaging the Tea Party.

    I did find the CEO's statement shockingly incoherent– strange that she wasn't better prepared. I don't know enough about the inner machinations of NPR to charge they were acting with malice.

    How do you embed links and use italics in your posts?

    The above is an argument I've had with several co-workers.
    Are you so vain, you probably think this post is about you?
