“I think it is a look inside what NPR executives really think, and for me this is a revelation in the sense that here they are saying exactly how they view the world,” Williams said. “And what’s incredible to me is here they are doing business with people who identify themselves as members of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
National Public Radio President and Chief Executive Vivian Schiller resigned in the wake of comments by a fellow executive that angered conservatives and renewed calls to end federal funding for public broadcasting.
The chairman of NPR’s board of directors announced Wednesday morning that he has accepted Ms. Schiller’s resignation, effective immediately.
NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik said in a tweet that Ms. Schiller was forced out by the board.
