Senior Vice President of NPR Ron Schiller met with individuals he believed to be potential donors. However, undercover video was running during this meeting. The following clips show Mr. Schiller’s concern that the “so-called educated elite is too small a percentage of the population.”

In the clip below, Mr. Schiller explains why he thinks NPR is perceived as liberal. He says, “It’s too bad, because I really don’t think it’s a liberal organization. I don’t believe it’s a conservative organization or a liberal organization. One other thing you can look at is how universities are regarded by a Democratic Congress versus a Republican Congress.”

“It’s the same thing. It’s much more about anti-intellectualism than it is about political, as a university is also by definition considered in this country to be liberal even though it’s not at all. It’s liberal, because it’s intellectual…a pursuit of knowledge. That is traditionally something the Democrats have funded and Republicans have not. So NPR traditionally gets sort of lumped in.”
