NPR CEO Out
Via NPR: NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns.
The story is developing, but it is in the context of yesterday’s release of a video tape showing an NPR fundraiser making disparaging remarks about the Tea Party in what ended up being a sting/hoax perpetrated by James O’Keefe.
The broader context is a public relations and ideological battle over both federal funding for NPR and the question of whether NPR is biased against conservatives.
A specific element of the story is the firing of Juan Williams by NPR last year (indeed, O’Keefe cites that event as the motivation behind the video).
