Nothing we did'nt know already. NPR has always been cheerleaders for HAMAS, and the Deocrat party. The sad thing is, all Americans are paying for this. Like the guy said on the tape, "We don't need the goverment money to stay alive". Make it so.

NPR propaganda is slowly coming to an end. Necessary change is not exactly what Obama had in mind.

These tapes just prove what most have known for years. It is time to cut the umbilical cord and see if this organization can survive on its own.

I resent the fact that my tax money has been used to fund such a leftist orgainzaiton all of these years.

I resent the fact that so much MORE of my tax money has been used to fund our military, which spends it killing people (including American citizens) and breaking things.

NPR funding is negligible by comparison... though I'm all for cutting it, since they are no more than a mouthpiece for Pentagon propaganda, like every other U.S. mainstream media outlet.

You whiney little pusy. You and your ilk would be the first crying for the help of the military if if your personal safety were in jeopardy. You cowards fight against the military until you need them...then yell "where are they?"

Finally some truth to astroturfing.

What took them so long?

The Fleaparty are the party of hate and divisivness.

Fantastic, we need more funding of this kind of truth.

If the Rethugs in Washington want to defund NPR's 6% of federal funding, so be it.

We'll just petition George Soros to pick up the difference.

NPR ain't goin' nowhere.

So this ugly little Rethuglican kid O'Keefe didn't learn his lesson after the phony ACORN video? Nor did he enjoy his little stint in prison so much, but he's looking to go back?

Wow.

Does anyone really tune in to NPR? Why should any tax dollars fund it? If folks want to listen to it then donate its funding.

It should be just like PBS which has more time raising donations than it does programming, mostly which sucks. We shouldn't pay for any of it.

"The current Republican Party is not really the Republican Party. It's been hijacked by this group that is ... not just Islamophobic but, really, xenophobic," Schiller said in the video, referring to the tea party movement. "They believe in sort of white, middle America, gun-toting it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."

Sounds like a fair assessment of the situation to me. What is the problem. Oh I know what the problem is. He talked to a couple claiming to be Muslim.

NPR believes that its listeners have a brain.

They do not dumb their programs down to the gutter level and are "fair and balanced".

Which may be the problem with the teapublicants arty who like their smear spewed on a blackboard.

Where was our military on 9/11, buddy? We had four "hijacked" airliners flying around for almost two hours, and our military does what?! It can't even protect its own headquarters!!

And then instead of seeing some accountability for this massive "failure" of our multi-trillion dollar defenses, a bunch of the military's top dogs get PROMOTED!!

You want to explain that to me, chump?

Not only should we cut funding to ZERO, but we should demand a REFUND!

I am not sure what Schiller said that was suppose to be so bad. His description of the Tea Party and their influence over the Republicans was dead on. He also stated that NPR airs all sides of an issue.(something Republicans don't like) O'Keefe is obviously trying to portray NPR as terrorist sympathizers but even though he includes Arab sounding music he fails miserably in show any bias towards or against Islam or Jews. This is just another part of the Right Wing continuing attack on the Press. The Right Wing is always clamoring about freedom of speech yet they keep trying to eliminate anyone who speaks against them or airs anything they disapprove of. Who does the Right Wing attack the most. They attack the press and workers which are the two groups that America was built on. Their goal is to break the unions and control the Press.

Wow.
"Fleaparty" and "Rethugs" isn't divisive terminology? Be careful about mindlessly cheering for just another "team" in this farce we call "American politics."
