UPDATED: Busted: NPR Execs caught on tape showing their true colors

The Daily Caller: In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR’s director of institutional giving, are seen meeting with two men who, unbeknownst to the NPR executives, are posing as members of a Muslim Brotherhood front group. The men, who identified themselves as Ibrahim Kasaam and Amir Malik from the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, met with Schiller and Liley at Café Milano, a well-known Georgetown restaurant, and explained their desire to give up to $5 million to NPR because, “the Zionist coverage is quite substantial elsewhere.”
On the tapes, Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren’t “just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”
No liberal bias here, folks [sarcasm off]. If Schiller is correct that liberals are so much smarter than conservatives, how come they keep falling for all these undercover sting videos? Project Veritas had better release the unedited version of this video quickly, because you just know NPR is going to scream that the video is doctored.

For me the real kicker in this video was this part.

Later in the lunch, Schiller explains that NPR would be better positioned free of federal funding. “Well frankly, it is clear that we would be better off in the long-run without federal funding,” he says. “The challenge right now is that if we lost it all together we would have a lot of stations go dark.”
When one of O’Keefe’s associates asked, “How confident are you, with all the donors that are available, if they should pull the funding right now that you would survive?,” Schiller answered this way: “Yes, NPR would definitely survive and most of the stations would survive.”
OK Congress, you heard the man, now how about saving the taxpayer $90 million? If you are interested in making NPR "better off without federal funding" you can sign the petition to defund them here.

UPDATE: Full two hour unedited version
Project VeritasProject Veritas, in order to offer transparency in reporting, has released the full two-hour video later today related to Part 1 of our NPR Investigation.
 The video, which is largely the raw video and audio of the entire conversation with NPR Foundation's President Ron Schiller, does contain one brief section in which the audio is redacted in order to ensure the safety of an NPR overseas correspondent.

I stopped listening to NPR a while back after 15 years as a listener.

This video is hardly surprising but it's good to catch these crooks in the act.

NPR is basically a tax payer funded LEFTIST [NOT Democrats, because they are more international leftist] political group. While they practice the old, conservative, out dated, uneducated 1A, they turn around and despise everyone else for practicing the Bill of Rights.

You are liberal because you make nothing and want others to pay for it, it's not because you are educated, you NPR commies.

ps to ABC: there's a group of scum bags buying all sorts of rights to old articles, then sued for settlement.

It might be a good idea to refrain from posting any thing from these websites if they belong to this group.

It's totally unbelievable how polarized our people have become! When was the last time a President apealed to voters to come out in order to defeat their "ENEMIES"! We're ALL Americans. One Nation & Indivisible - except we've been so busy dividing ourselves. There are good people on the left, in the center and on the right. There are not so good people on the left, in the center and on the right. Just as many in all buckets. So stop labeling fellow countrymen as "ENEMIES", lose the paranoia and extremism. NO ONE wins.
