    Catholic League: Defund 'Rotten' NPR

    Catholic League: Defund NPR

    Tuesday, 08 Mar 2011 07:34 PM
    By David A. Patten

    An undercover video that captured National Public Radio’s top fundraising executive disparaging Republicans, Christians, evangelicals, tea-party members, gun owners, Jews, and Americans lacking elite educational backgrounds has touched off a strong backlash across the cultural and political spectrum, fueling renewed calls for Congress to yank NPR’s $90 million in annual taxpayer funding.

    Conservatives issued new demands for NPR’s defunding, after the secret video emerged that showed Ron Schiller, who was NPR Foundation president and vice president for development of NPR when the video was recorded Feb. 22, making remarks that various groups found to be offensive.

    The video came from conservative muckraking activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. O’Keefe is the same activist whose undercover video of ACORN spurred Congress to defund that group.

    In the new video, recorded Feb. 22, Schiller is heard telling two men posing as Muslim donors with extremist ties that the Republican Party has been “hijacked

    NPR exec caught on hidden camera trashing conservatives, sliming Jews

    Rick Moran

    James O'Keefe, the young filmmaker who brought down ACORN, has caught on tape two people identified as senior executives of NPR bashing conservatives and the tea party and cozying up to people they believe to represent a Muslim organization affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, in hope of scoring a multi-million dollar donation. Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller has an excellent write-up of the contents of the contents of the recording released by O'Keefe:

    "The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people's personal lives and very fundamental Christian - I wouldn't even call it Christian. It's this weird evangelical kind of move," declared [Ron] Schiller, who runs NPR's foundation.

    In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR's director of institutional giving, are seen meeting with two men who, unbeknownst to the NPR executives, are posing as members of a Muslim Brotherhood front group. The men, who identified themselves as Ibrahim Kasaam and Amir Malik from the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, met with Schiller and Liley at Café Milano, a well-known Georgetown restaurant, and explained their desire to give to $5 million to NPR because, "the Zionist coverage is quite substantial elsewhere."

    On the tapes, Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been "hijacked by this group." The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, "the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people." Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren't "just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."

    The release of the recording comes a day after NPR CEO Vivian Schiller (no relation to Ron) in a talk at the National Press Club challenged anyone for evidence of liberal bias at NPR.

    That's not the only difference between the undercover tape and NPR's public positions.

    Later in the lunch, Schiller explains that NPR would be better positioned free of federal funding. "Well frankly, it is clear that we would be better off in the long-run without federal funding," he says. "The challenge right now is that if we lost it all together we would have a lot of stations go dark."

    When one of O'Keefe's associates asked, "How confident are you, with all the donors that are available, if they should pull the funding right now that you would survive?," Schiller answered this way: "Yes, NPR would definitely survive and most of the stations would survive."

    That is precisely the opposite answer Schiller's boss, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller (no relation), gave at a press conference Monday in Washington. "We take [federal defunding] very, very seriously," she said. "It would have a profound impact we believe on our ability - of public broadcasting's ability - to deliver news and information."

    At the Café Milano lunch, Schiller said he's "very proud of" how NPR fired Juan Williams. "What NPR stood for is non-racist, non-bigoted, straightforward telling of the news and our feeling is that if a person expresses his or her opinion, which anyone is entitled to do in a free society, they are compromised as a journalist," he said. "They can no longer fairly report."

    With that, Schiller once again directly contradicted NPR's public statements. At her Monday press conference, Vivian Schiller apologized for the way it handled the Williams matter. "We handled the situation badly," she said. "We acted too hastily and we made some mistakes. I made some mistakes

    Clearly, it is time to defund public broadcasting.

    Update. NPR responds:

    "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," Davis Rehm said in an e-mail to The Daily Caller. "We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for."

    The leader of the House effort to defund NPR responds to Byron York:

    I am amazed at the condescension and arrogance that we saw in the sting video," Lamborn told me. "They seem to be viewing themselves as elites living in an ivory tower, and they are obviously out of touch with ordinary Americans."

    The video has already become part of the debate currently raging on Capitol Hill about funding for NPR. "The real crux of the video was when the guy [NPR executive Ron Schiller] admitted that they could survive and would even be better off without federal funding," says Lamborn. "That's what I'm hoping happens." ... n_cam.html

    According to NPR, Schiller announced last week that he was leaving the organization to join the Aspen Institute, a seminar and think-tank closer to his Colorado home.

    Do you think Senator John McCain will try to inhibit Aspen influence operations as part of his lobbying reform initiative? Not likely.

    An AP story carried on the CBS news website noted that Dick Clark, “a former senator from Iowa who established the Aspen Institute program for Congress,
