NPR ‘appalled’ by former exec’s comments

• Yahoo! News blog

Outgoing NPR executive Ron Schiller slams Republicans and the tea party movement and suggests that NPR would be better off without any federal funding in a hidden-camera video released Tuesday by conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe.

Schiller, president of the NPR Foundation and a senior vice president for development until just last week, appears on the tape at Georgetown's Café Milano with NPR director of institutional giving Betsy Liley and two men--Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar--posing as executives from a fake Islamic organization considering a $5 million donation to the network.
