Schiller moved his resignation up to now.  He is trying to "do the right thing" by NPR or something, I guess...maybe.  This is what he had to say about the whole thing:

[blockquote]“While the meeting I participated in turned out to be a ruse, I made statements during the course of the meeting that are counter to NPR’s values and also not reflective of my own beliefs. I offer my sincere apology to those I offended. I previously resigned from NPR effective May 6th to accept another job. In an effort to put this unfortunate matter behind us, NPR and I have agreed that my resignation is effective today.”[/blockquote]

Bummer.

I hate it when you just go spontaneously insane and start lying to yourself and everyone around you. I mean, it's great at parties and stuff but then someone shows up with a hidden camera and the next thing you know you have to quit your job and start making fake apologies. It seriously messes with your whole day.

Bottom line is that you just can't fix stupid.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

Juan Williams weighs in. And there are videos and stuff at the link...

[blockquote]Former NPR commentator Juan Williams spoke exclusively to FoxNation.com about the NPR sting video, which captured NPR senior executive Ron Schiller in a bigoted and revealing rant about conservatives, Jews and the American taxpayer. “This was an act of incredible condescension,” said Williams. “The rank hypocrisy of his remarks was telling for me. They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is. They prostitute themselves for money.

Williams said Schiller’s remarks about the Jews dominating the newspaper industry was “outright anti-Semitism,” and labeling Tea Party members “gun-toting” “racists” reveals “their real feelings.” This is how they talk in boardrooms and editorial meetings, explained Williams. “This is how they really feel.”[/blockquote]

Ah, the hypocrisy of the left. Juan was quite comfy with these bottom feeders right up to the point where they fired him for daring to stray a few inches off of the reservation. He can, with a straight face apparently, say this, "They prostitute themselves for money," and not see himself just a few months back. And compounding this stupidity is that no one (and I mean NO ONE) at FNC will call him out on this howler 'cause they are all buds and stuff.

And then when he says this, "They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is," do you suppose he is including Mara Liason in that blanket indictment? I can see it now...he finished taping and broadcasting that and has to pass Mara in the hall at FNC and says to her, "Of course, I didn't mean you when I said that stuff. You believe me, right Mara?"

The funny thing is that good old Juan is about as close as you are likely to get to a "reasonable left winger."

Pathetic.

And now the other Schiller is gone:
[blockquote]
NPR CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned, the radio network announced Wednesday.
The announcement comes a day after a hidden-camera video was released showing a senior NPR executive criticizing the Tea Party as "racist."
NPR condemned the comments, but the company announced Wednesday that the Board of Directors just accepted Schiller's resignation, "effective immediately."
"The Board accepted her resignation with understanding, genuine regret, and great respect for her leadership of NPR these past two years," the board said, according to a statement on NPR's website.
[/blockquote]

Liberals acting as if they are above the fray....it is what liberals do, even those with large Fox contracts.

I heard one clip that sounded as though he was chuckling a bit.  Everytime the mask drops interesting things happen!

“While the meeting I participated in turned out to be a ruse, I made statements during the course of the meeting that are counter to NPR’s values and also not reflective of my own beliefs.

And by the way. For those around here who get confused about whether Vivian Schiller is married to this idiot, never fear. Ron Schiller and his "partner" have already been living in Aspen, CO, according to what I have read.
