Acorn Killers Target NPR

The video comes from Project Veritas, and is another in political activist James O’Keefe’s undercover exposes (he most prominently took on ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). In the video, Schiller and NPR institutional giving director Betsy Liley are at lunch in Washington with two Project Veritas “investigative reporters” identified as Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar, who posed as “Ibrahim Kasaam and Amir Malik.” They were allegedly interested in having their organization donate $5 million to NPR. O’Keefe’s organization says the recording was made on Feb. 22.

Huge steaming piles of commentary on this here.

  1. Even with all the edits to remove context, I do not see anything said that seemed to be factually incorrect or really objectionable, except where they twist the words around at the top of the video. What am I missing here?

  2. John, the only problem is that NPR has staked its reputation on being nonpartisan rather than being accurate. Thus, the recorded comments, while generally true, damage NPR’s reputation because they take a stand on politics.
