You know those Tea Partiers...

...reducing groups of people to ugly stereotypes... wait a minute...
Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar posed as members of a wealthy Muslim education foundation "founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood," and taped the NPR representatives -- largely Schiller -- answering them with exactly what they wanted to hear.

"It's not just Islamophobic, but really xenophobic. Basically, they believe in white, middle America, gun-toting -- it's pretty scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."
Bias? What media bias?

I mean, c'mon, NPR... is that the official party line?
"We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for."
Yeah, well sure... this guy's just some low-level flunky or loose cannon stagehand, right?

Whaddaya mean "NPR Foundation Senior VP for Development?"


UPDATE: She could always try the CBC
NPR's CEO and president has been forced to resign, following an undercover sting in which a senior executive was videotaped describing Tea Party members as "racist."
