NRP punk

the thing i'm really curious about is whether or not NPR development people allowed to have and express political views? ron schiller wasn't an editor or journalist. he had nothing to do with the content of NPR's broadcast. he was just a fund raiser. so why is it a strike against NPR if he thinks that tea partiers are racist? a lot of people think that. so what?

not that i think that "so what?" will carry the day. like with the previous o'keefe projects, the real point will be lost as the right wing media gins up a controversy. o'keefe doesn't make coherent points, he tars by association. that's what the conservative movement thrives on these days.
