NPR Versus Credibility.

In trying to justify the firing of Juan Williams, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller says this:

“… NPR’s ethics code [states]: ‘In appearing on TV or other media. … NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist. They should not participate in shows … that encourage punditry and speculation rather than fact-based analysis.”

“More fundamentally, ‘In appearing on TV or other media including electronic Web-based forums, NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist.'”

Naturally, being the information age, when anything that any other NPR journalists has said that represents “punditry and speculation rather than fact-based analysis” can be Googled… Well, lets just say bloggers are going to town exposing NPR’s management as the hypocrites that they are. I’ll link to the bloggers I come across as the day goes on.

Here’s Ann Althouse.

Here’s Reason’s Michael Moynihan.

    Then there’s that Nina Totenberg, another NPR “news analyst”, who apparently wished AIDS upon someone’s grandchildren. That’s ok, by NPR standards.
