NPR Will Pay for Its Insulting Double Standard
Stephen Hayes weighs in here, citing the flagrant double standard of NPR, which has allowed its Supreme Court correspondent Nina Totenberg to say all sorts of partisan nonsense, without making a peep. (Totenberg's wishing AIDS on Jesse Helms is just one of her greatest hits.)
That NPR CEO Vivian Shiller would publicly suggest Williams should have kept his feelings "between him and his psychiatrist," is outrageous and grounds enough for her own removal.
What is clearly evident here is the sort of liberal arrogance and intolerance that have gotten the party of liberalism in such trouble with the voting public.
It is simply stunning, that just a few months after the Shirley Sherrod fiasco that NPR would ape the Obama administration's fumbling of her case. The backlash against NPR will be as painful as it is well deserved.
