I wonder what the people at National Public Radio REALLY think?
Publicly they are too chicken to defend Ron Schiller, in whose taped conversation (orchestrated by James O'Keefe) between himself and two people posing both as Muslims and as potential $5 million contributors to National Public Radio, he described 'Tea Party' conservatives as 'xenophobic, gun toting racists.' Gun toting may have been hyberbole. But really. How far off the mark is he?
Dana David Rehm, senior vice president of marketing at NPR says, "We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for."
So what, exactly, does NPR stand for? I thought the answer used to be, "the truth."
When did it become impossible to speak, and defend, the truth in this country?
Long ago. Long ago.
The way the NPR brass is scurrying off in the opposite direction disgusts me. Stand by your man.
Nice blogs are not supposed to be political. They're supposed to be about flowers and food and the things nice people can agree on without scratching the nasty surface.
Consider the surface scratched.
