      What you and many like you want is not freedom of speech. You want freedom from the consequences of speech.
      what you conveniently ignore is that Schiller, in that video, explicitly states: I'm speaking for myself, and not NPR

      And that he was not responsible for content. He was a fundraiser

        you think her resignation was entirely of her own accord? I'm sure they encouraged her to go

        do you have any idea about how the world actually works?
        Keep trolling....it's what you do best...... Because you can't really be as stupid as you post on here.....can you....?

        She ran her mouth, got caught, and did the right thing.....she quit! Do you think there is some vast right wing conspiracy that had the rest of the Libs that run that place make her quit....?

        Next time I am in DC.....I'm going to look you up...so I can get some of what you are smoking....because it's appears to be very good ****.....

          lol
          yup. Its a fact. you don't have a clue what you are talking about. You just argue for argument's sake.
          She (Vivian Schiller) did not get caught after she "ran her mouth" - as you said
          she wasn't even in that video

          get the facts right before you try and criticize others

          Also.... she was asked to resign:

          "The chairman of NPR's board of directors says the board asked chief executive Vivian Schiller to step down after another executive called the tea party racist."

                      she "couldn't confirm" at that time.

                      Since that time, its become known that the Board asked her to leave.
                      From NPR's website:

                      Vivian Schiller, NPR's CEO and president since January 2009, left that job today in the wake of the second high-profile controversy to hit the organization in the past six months.

                      Dave Edwards, chairman of NPR's board, said directors came to the conclusion that the controversies under Schiller's watch had become such a distraction that she could no longer effectively lead the organization. She had told the directors that they should take the action they felt was appropriate, and Edwards said the board decided it would be best for her to depart.

                        Doesn't matter who they claim they are speaking for, it was still said and it is still likely to effect programming. Right...fundraisers have no input on programming, because donors NEVER SUGGEST things!!!!
                        A Veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount up to, and including their life. That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact!

                          so.
                          an employee of an organization can never have a personal opinion - without implicating the WHOLE organization ?

                          that makes absolutely no sense.

"I offer my sincere apology to those I offended. I resigned from NPR, previously effective May 6, to accept another job. In an effort to put this unfortunate matter behind us, NPR and I have agreed that my resignation is effective today."
                            I can understand someone foolishly making statements counter to your employers values while representingy your employer but making statements not reflective of your own beliefs. Ron Schiller is a liar. He either lied during the speech to the potential donors pandering to them for money or he lied during the apology either way his actions were reprehensible. If I was a member of the board at NPR I would demand his resignation on the basis of his lies.
                            When Society makes war on its police, it better be prepared to make friends of its criminals.

                              Employess of organizations are entitled to their own opinions however when they are acting as a representative of that organization they can be prohibited from expressing that opinion. Oh and by the way you just made the argument the the talking heads at Fox News made after the Juan Williams firing. At the time he made the statement Williams was not representing NPR he was representing Fox News.

                                that may be, but Ray8285 suggests that because he has those beliefs or opinions, it implicates NPR as a whole.

                                its a valid argument. I thought NPR's firing of Williams was dumb - if those comments were the sole cause
                                Although they implied there had been a background of issues with him
