"NPR exec caught villifying tea party"

I fail to see anything wrong with this picture. He calls them racists. Well, there is some truth to that. I say good for him. Maybe it's not unbiased to say that, but certainly not resign worthy.

Evidently it's just not PC these days to point out naked truths. Same thing happened to Anderson Cooper when he said that Mubarak lied to his people; he got a bunch of shit from some circles claiming he was being too subjective in his reporting.

He'd (Shiller) already informed others of his intention to leave NPR prior to this snafu, so this all seems a little fishy to me.

It's difficult to take cries that NPR is biased seriously when they come from people who get their news from Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

since people write the news, there is always a bit of bias in it. Fox news is bias one way, MSNBC bias the other way. and this is why I get my news from the BBC. They take time to dig for the truth, and find the truth between the two sides. They also take the time to tell the story, not just a 60 second blip on a war to make time to cover the latest celeb meltdown to appease the masses.
