Now that Fox News contributor Juan Williams has been dropped from National Public Radio, the liberal website Media Matters for America is now targeting Mara Liasson, the last remaining NPR who works with Fox News.
“NPR’s Mara Liasson and her long-running association with Fox News has often raised questions. This might be the proper time for NPR to finally address that thorny issue,” wrote Media Matters columnist Eric Boehlert Thursday in a post entitled “What about Mara Liasson?” “[I]f you look at NPR’s code of ethics, there’s simply no way Liasson should be making appearances on Fox.”
Boehlert cited an official NPR document that says employees may not make media appearances that are “harmful to the reputation of NPR or the NPR participant” or “where the employee’s appearance may appear to endorse the agenda of a group or organization.”

George Soros recently openly gave Media Matters one million dollars, as well as $1.8 MILLION DOLLARS to NPR,( and we know that he has funnelled funds to various organizations to assist in his agenda) and basically issued a fatwa on FOX and Beck. Now, NPR fired Juan Williams for comments he made on O’Reilly the other night.
UPDATE: Soros donated $1.8 Million dollars to NPR:
Last week, George Soros — “the billionaire financier who was an energetic Democratic donor in the last several election cycles,” according to the New York Times — announced he was sitting out the 2010 race because “I don’t believe in standing in the way of [a Republican] avalanche.”
Today, National Public Radio announced a $1.8 million grant from Soros’s Open Society Foundations for an “Impact of Government” initiative that will eventually “add editorial resources and reporters to NPR member stations in all 50 states.”
According to The Daily Caller, “The firing of National Public Radio news analyst Juan Williams for comments made about Muslims, combined with left-wing billionaire George Soros’ recent $1.8 million donation to the organization, have reignited calls to end NPR’s taxpayer subsidies.”
And Examiner.com Los Angeles stated that “Soros money is now beginning to turn the screws and place pressure.”

“By appearing on Fox, reporters validate its propaganda values and help to undermine the role of legitimate news organizations,” Weisberg wrote in an Oct. 17 Newsweek column, “Why Fox News Is Un-American.” “Respectable journalists — I’m talking to you, Mara Liasson — should stop appearing on its programs.”

It is apparent that our educators have crossed the line, as Juan Williams stated yesterday, in tecahing respect for the office of the President versus indoctrination of ideology. Remember, these are young and impressionable minds. Chairman Mao would be so proud!

Geithner to NPR: Don’t Worry Regulators Have Been Watching This Toxic Stuff…Just Not Very “Carefully” or “Realistically”
By Cody Willard
I can’t believe the entire financial system is being run by this dude Timothy Geithner.
Don’t these almost back-to-back completely contradictory statements that he gave NPR last night absolutely underscore why the worthless bureaucrats at the Treasury and the crony regulators that pay them off will NEVER EVER fix the system UNTIL THEY GET OUT OF IT?
NPR: Now, I would think a fair number of citizens could say, wait a second, we’re — depending on when you start the clock, you know — two years or one year or six months into this horrible crisis and you’re telling me that the government doesn’t have a strong, forward-looking, hard-headed assessment of the health of the banking system?
Demi-god Geithner: Well, I think that, again, we want to make sure that it’s done more consistently and more realistically across banks and across the supervisors. So this is part of what banks do and what supervisors do. But, frankly, it needs to be done more carefully and with a more forward-looking, realistic approach.
NPR: I want to switch a little to these toxic assets. I mean, we at NPR and journalists around the world and certainly people in the regulatory world have looked at a lot of these toxic assets … these CDOs and CDO-squareds. And I’m just curious, have you spent or does your staff have a sense -– I mean, we’re talking about the overall banks’ capital structure and the overall banks’ ability to withstand shocks? But have you spent time looking at these toxic assets? Do you have staff sort of tracking down the mortgages that underlie some of the other more exotic asset-backed securities that underlie some of them?
Almost-Omnipotent Geithner: Well, the supervisors of the country -– you know, we have a complex network of bank supervisors, banking authorities, financial agencies -– they have examiners in these institutions examining the financial strength of these firms. And as part of that, of course, one of the central jobs they have is to look at the risk in a whole range of different loans and assets these guys have, not just those related to real estate that you are referring to, but everything else, too.
And that job is to try to make sure that, again, people are making appropriate judgments about what the risk in those assets are.
So, he wants to rest assured that “the supervisors of the country -– you know, we have a complex network of bank supervisors, banking authorities, financial agencies -– they have examiners in these institutions examining the financial strength of these firms” even though, “we want to make sure that it’s done more consistently and more realistically across banks and across the supervisors. So this is part of what banks do and what supervisors do. But, frankly, it needs to be done more carefully and with a more forward-looking, realistic approach.”
So the new stress tests full of old data and a few new assumptions by this nearly-all-knowing dude running the Treasury are going to give us all the information we needed to know about all those products and markets and derivatives and other asset classes and moving parts in the financial system even though we don’t need any of that because we’ve had regulators making sure this stuff isn’t junk anyway except that the regulators weren’t doing their jobs “carefully enough” or “realistically” enough.
I hate having to continually harp on this stuff — I mean, Treasury bureaucrats have always doubled-talked crony regulations. But Treasury didn’t use to have a blank check to write to these cronies like Geithner does now.
Even if we assume he’s not corrupt…we can certainly once again ascertain just how nonsensical his statements and policies are.
And nonsensical policies that impact trillions of dollars of what used to be mostly private, profit-seeking markets are very destructive, no?
I yearn only for rule of contract law.
