James O'Keefe is a patriot. One young man with a camera and some moxie can change the course of events in ways that bolster the nation and defend truth and liberty.

NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns

NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned, NPR just announced.

This follows yesterday's news that then-NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller (no relation) was videotapped slamming conservatives and questioning whether NPR needs federal funding during a lunch with men posing as members of a Muslim organization (they were working with political activist James O'Keefe on a "sting.")

Vivian Schiller quickly condemned Ron Schiller's comments, and he moved up an already-announced decision to leave NPR and resigned effectively immediately. But Ron Schiller's gaffe followed last fall's firing of NPR political analyst Juan Williams, for which Vivian Schiller came under harsh criticism.

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

I don't care if NPR becomes a bastain of conservative thought......Defund these animals. Force them to compete in the marketplace.

Another slice of the pie exposed. This is not exposing the liberal underbelly, this is how the whole pie operates.

O keefe gets it. He is exposing the true liberal.
I'm not always engulfed in scandals, but when I am, I make sure I blame others.

Doesn't matter.

Another effeminate soft-talking elitist piece of leftist trash will fill the void and the MFM will shoot this sorry episode down the memory hole with everything else...

SSDD!

Better not derail the de-funding of these morons!

NOW.... (this is getting better and better all the time)

Shamed former NPR exec Ron Schiller quits post at Aspen Institute before he begins

Aspen Institute communications director Jim Spiegelman says in an e-mail: “Ron Schiller has informed us that, in light of the controversy surrounding his recent statements, he does not feel that it’s in the best interests of the Aspen Institute for him to come work here.”
                                                                       

As a commenter at BG, "mrm_in_wnc" said, "O'Keefe bags a brace of Schillers with one shot! that's dang fine shooting, James!"
