NPR & Federal Funding

NPR chief executive quits over hidden camera video | accessAtlanta

Quote:
WASHINGTON ó NPR president and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned in the wake of comments by a fellow executive that angered conservatives and renewed calls to end federal funding for public broadcasting.

The chairman of NPR's board of directors announced Wednesday morning that he has accepted Schiller's resignation, effective immediately.

NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik said in a tweet that Schiller was forced out by the board.

A hidden-camera video of an NPR executive calling the tea party racist and saying the network would be better off without federal money has led to that executive's immediate resignation.
Why is there federal funding to any news outlet? I don't care how minute it is it should be cut from ALL media.

I bet we would be surprised at what all is funded by the US taxpayer.

It's probably better to stay in the dark on some things, you will blow a head gasket and start puking out brain fluid like a 6.0L with a tuner.

Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
