NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns, GOP Still Vowing to Defund
Today NPR CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned, in what looks like a knee-jerk reaction to right wing smears against the organization.
But if NPR thinks this will do anything to stop the Republican Party’s raging attempt to destroy them, they’re sadly mistaken. Eric Cantor announced today that the wrecking crew is still going ahead:
“Our concern is not about any one person at NPR, rather it’s about millions of taxpayers. NPR has admitted that they don’t need taxpayer subsidies to thrive, and at a time when the government is borrowing 40 cents of every dollar that it spends, we certainly agree with them.”
