NPR’s President Vivian Schiller Resigns

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 9, 2011

The Wall Street Journal just reported that National Public Radio (NPR) President Vivian Schiller resigned because fellow executive Ron Schiller’s (not related to Vivian) bigoted comments caught on video tape earlier this week.  This was the subject of yesterday’s posting: “NPR Executive Ron Schiller Caught on Video Spewing Hate”.

Ms. Schiller’s falling on her sword is a desperate attempt at damage control.  NPR is concerned that this new ruckus, when added to the inappropriate Juan Williams firing (“NPR Shows Fascist Fangs by Firing Juan Williams”), will fuel the flames of calls to end federal funding for it.

The Ron Schiller video tape merely outs the Progressive bigots that work for NPR.  Had NPR not been publically funded, this would be an issue for its board and those that support it financially.  But it is not.  NPR receives public funding that makes its bigotry and Leftist leanings a problem for we the people.

While there may have been some logic for funding NPR in its early days given the limited means of distributing news, with advanced technology, the Internet, cable news, etc., all such logic has evaporating.  NPR’s government funding needs to be pulled immediately.  As a private organization they would have to supply services that buyers (advertisers) are willing to support.
