National Public Radio is undergoing some upheaval as senior executive Ron Schiller and Director of Institutional Giving, Betsy Liley have been featured in a video, lunching with two undercover members of the Veritas Project.
Posing as members of MEAC, a fake Muslim group funding education, (complete with phony website) two Veritas ‘agents’ proffer funding to NPR, and obtain all sorts of fun statements from the two NPR execs that would never have been offered up to the public under normal circumstances. The video ends with a “to be continued…..” so keep your eyes open for more.
Schiller, who is said to have already announced plans to leave NPR by May, has been instructed to leave earlier than originally intended by CEO Vivian Schiller (not a relative).
As Funding Cuts are being debated in Congress, NPR has quickly accumulated major Egg on its Face.
