James O’Keefe Stings NPR: Fake Controversy Ensues

He’s baaaack. Thoroughly discredited for his previous undercover sting operation of ACORN, Andrew Breitbart protege James O’Keefe is back in the news after his organization Project Veritas helped to orchestrate an undercover sting on NPR fundraising vice-prez Ron Schiller.

Project Veritas captures Schiller saying things like “I think what we all believe is if we don’t have Muslim voices in our schools, on the air … it’s the same thing we faced as a nation when we didn’t have female voices.” NPR called Schiller’s statements “appalling,” but how is calling for more Muslim representation in the media a bad thing? We get that NPR federal funding is in the crosshairs, but now isn’t the time to be timid. Even if a cadre of NPR suits kiss the feet of every Republican in Congress in apologia, this video will still be used as an excuse to pull funds.

So stop grovelling and back your man.
