Yesterday, National Public Radio President and CEO Vivian Schiller took to the National Press Club’s stage to make the case to save the generous taxpayer funding of the left-leaning radio network. Today, her effort may collapse at the hands of the same journo-activist who lay waste to ACORN with little more than a camera and a pimp outfit.
The Washington Times’ Kerry Picket has obtained the complete 2-hour video of the latest sting by James O’Keefe’s organization in which a representative of the pro-Sharia, but entirely fictitious ,“Muslim Education Action Center” sits down with NPR’s chief fundraiser, Ron Schiller (no relation to Vivian), for a two-hour lunch at Cafe Milano. Mr. Schiller allegedly agreed to the meeting in the hopes of landing a large donation from the group that told Mr. Schiller it had ties to the violent Muslim Brotherhood.
The Washington Times’ Water Cooler blog‘s exclusive excerpts from the video reveal a culture in public broadcasting where firing Juan Williams isn’t debatable, the Tea Party is obviously racist, conservative activists aren’t real Christians and America’s uneducated have too much political power.
Later this morning, O’Keefe’s website, TheProjectVeritas.com will post the entire video so members of the public and journalists can see for themselves what was said in full and without editing. In order to gain access to an early release of the tape, The Washington Times agreed not to contact National Public Radio until the tape was released this morning. We will do that as soon as we are able and bring you their response on the WaterCooler as soon as it is available.
UPDATE: NPR responds to undercover video sting.
The first excerpt – on the firing of Juan Williams – is here.
Kerry’s second excerpt — on America’s nasty uneducated masses — is here.
And the third excerpt — on how the GOP has been hijacked by White gun-toting Middle America — is here.
Later this morning, the full video will be available here.
Check back with the Water Cooler for continuing coverage by Kerry Picket.
