Source NPR Exec -We don’t need Govt Funds, Jews don’t own us, Tea Party are Racists,

Earlier today, independent journalist James O’Keefe released his latest undercover investigative videos.  In the first video, Senior Vice President of Development of the NPR Foundation, Ron Schiller, is shown discussing a potential donation from a phony Muslim Brotherhood front group set-up by O’Keefe’s team. While discussing the importance of NPR, Mr. Schiller expresses negative personal views on conservatives, the Tea Party, Republicans, Zionists, and Juan Williams, among other topics.

In a second video, NPR fund-raising officers discuss why those who question global warming will only be covered as a political story, not as a science story.

The fallout from the sting has been fast and furious.

NPR offered up a partial defense, but was quick to denounce the comments made by Mr. Schiller:

The fraudulent organization represented in this video repeatedly pressed us to accept a $5 million check, with no strings attached, which we repeatedly refused to accept. We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for. Mr. Schiller announced last week that he is leaving NPR for another job.

Even though Schiller is already on his way out the door, NPR has put him on “administrative leave” since being made aware of the video footage.

The Daily Caller reports that Eric Cantor has used the videos as a springboard to call to defund NPR:

This video clearly highlights the fact that public broadcasting doesn’t need taxpayer funding to thrive, and I hope that admission will lead to a bipartisan consensus to end these unnecessary federal subsidies.
