NPR Head Ousted After Hateful Video is Released

Jennifer Harper, The Washington Times

National Public Radio President and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned, the public broadcaster said Wednesday, a day after the release of an undercover video sting showing a former top NPR executive villifying grass-roots conservatives and questioning the need for continued federal funding for the organization.

According to initial reports from David Folkenflik, NPR’s own media reporter, Mrs. Schiller was “ousted” from her position by management.

“To repeat, CEO Vivian Schiller has been forced out by the board,” Mr. Folkenflik said in a tweet within minutes of the public announcement.

The resignation is “effective immediately,” NPR board of directors Chairman Dave Edwards said to its staff and member stations, also announcing that Joyce Slocum, senior vice president of legal affairs and general counsel, has been appointed to the position of interim CEO. A search is already under way for a permanent replacement.

    Allah Akbar !!!! The NPR Infidels love Sharia and Mooslims. We must wait to cut their throats until the last vestiges of those hateful racist rednecks are eliminated along with the Zionist Dogs. These leftists are soft quislings and will beg to convert to the religion of peace rather than die. Inshallah

  4. Psalm 1
    1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
    2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
    3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
    4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
    5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
    6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

  5. Even as Mideast oil supplies are increasingly imperiled by civil unrest, President Obama is systematically blocking every effort to develop domestic supplies of oil. If the turmoil in the Mideast escalates, it could unnecessarily mean $5 or more a gallon gas and the collapse of the American economy.

    Based on solely on his actions, it would seem President Obama hates America and most Americans. After all, a robust economy is dependent on a cheap supply of energy. Yet, the Obama administration has thrown roadblock after roadblock in the way of developing domestic coal, oil and natural gas supplies that would assure a stable, cheap supply of energy for America.

    Perhaps this shouldn’t be a surprise. After all, Obama warned that his cap and trade plans would “bankrupt” the coal industry and necessarily cause energy prices to “skyrocket” during the 2008 campaign. But, the electorate didn’t pay any attention because he promised hope and change.

    We should have paid more attention. In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle during the 2008 campaign Obama casually dropped the bombshell that he would bankrupt the coal industry. “Sure, if somebody wants to build coal-fired power plants, they can,” said Obama as if he was discussing the weather, “it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they are gonna be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

    Obama was breezily explaining the enormous penalties that will be incurred by the coal, oil and natural gas industries after he imposes his draconian cap and trade regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Obama then admitted to the Chronicle that “under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

  6. Taxpayers don't have to finance FOX, idiot. Does anyone seriously think NPR is not a bunch of freaks biased towards the far left? I don't mind them being there performing their goofball dorky highbrow leftwing antics – but I really don't want to fund their circus. That's the bottom line.

    Well, if he doesn't like it, he can resign as "President" and go to a Middle-Eastern country! I don't want him here!

  9. Dear Fellow Conservative,

    One man, more than any other, is shoving America down a slippery slope toward European-style socialism.

    That man is not Barack Obama. He is the man behind Barack Obama. The man who, more than any other, elected Obama and has used the billion dollar campaign machine he has built to try to insert his insidious agenda into the halls of Congress, as well as the Oval Office, and deep into the machinery of our state politics. That man is George Soros.

    Driven by ego-mania and a desire to destroy American capitalism and global preeminence, Soros has created a shadow government of powerful leftwing organizations working for the radical transformation of our country. Now you can understand why and how it's happening. I have just completed a detailed report on George Soros that I want you and every concerned American to have. From Shadow Party to Shadow Government – George Soros and Barack Obama's Effort to Fundamentally Change America, carefully follows the money and the ideology of the two key players in the radical left's massive assault on our freedom, democracy, and way of life.

    • Yes, Obama is just a tool of the very dangerous George Soros, Unions, and so many other organizations who have helped prop him up to carry out their adgendas.

  11. WHY DOES THIS WEBSITE CARRY ADS FOR NPR???????????????????????

    • Jack Kense says:

      Because this website is a tool for making money, and by putting Google Ad blocks on it, Google searches the site for buzzwords and puts ads that correspond to buzz words into the ad blocks. Article has words NPR in it, Google sees it, and advertises it.

  12. Jack Kense says:

    And all black and white skunks are only indigenous to America, Canada, Mexico and Hawaii, thus proving that Obama is a natural born American citizen!

  13. MORONS!!!
