Republican Push To Defund NPR

Posted by on Nov 18, 2010 in Politics | No Comments

How did the first GOP-ordered House vote since the election work out? Well not so well:

The Republican campaign to take away all federal funding from National Public Radio (NPR) was over before it began, with GOP lawmakers’ procedural trick to force a vote on the issue failing on Thursday.

Most folks think the attempt to defund NPR is directly related to Republican “outrage” that NPR fired Juan Williams after he made some not so “nice” comments about Muslims on Fox News.

Update: In other news, Fox News head Roger Ailes says NPR is run by Nazis three thing in a 40 word statement.
