Let’s have a look back and LAUGH!
The “TEABAGGER” VIDEO IS STILL THERE http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=120344047
Take a look at this video that is being endorsed by the “fair and balanced” outfit, NPR – funded by YOUR MONEY! (But make sure you read the comments section too.)
The makers of the video, as well as NPR, are too stupid to realize that the video vindicates the tea party movement. When the government has such contempt for the tax payer that they are willing to openly mock them AND use their funds to do it, it is time to throw NPR on the ash heap of history.
Update: Here is the contact information for NPR’s Ombudsman http://help.npr.org/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=5670&task=ticket
Here is the phone number – 202-513-3245 CALL NOW.
Update: I just had a conversation with the office of the Ombudsman. They were very courteous and respectful, as I expected them to be. They logged my formal complaint and I made them aware that they may be getting calls from our readers.
Their position, it seems, is that the video appeared in it’s “opinion” section.
Would NPR be equally comfortable letting a racist use their choice of word play when writing their “opinion” of the Million Man March? Hiding behind the “opinion” shield is a low point for the Office of the Ombudsman at NPR.
I urge you to call, but be respectful.
