Is NPR the next Acorn? The public radio powerhouse is apparently the latest target of conservative rabble-rousers such as James O'Keefe, the undercover right-winger whose Acorn sting spelled major trouble for that institution, and Wednesday, NPR's CEO Vivian Schiller took the fall.
Republican Rep Eric Cantor was one of the GOP operatives behind this week's push to cut public funding to National Public Radio (this Juan Williams drama still has legs) because that would be a "common sense" move to (continued).
NPR canned Juan Williams and created a firestorm of negative publicity and political calls to defund public broadcasting. Is there such a thing as separation between so-called objective and opinion media? And how much is the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage mess costing Americans?
Right about where NPR's Juan Williams says, in this clip from Monday's "The O'Reilly Factor," that he thinks Bill O'Reilly is "right," offering the Fox News host his support after last week's O'Reilly kerfuffle on "The View," things take a fateful turn for Williams' career. Coincidence?
