NPR has announced that CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned.
Schiller is not related to former fundraising chief Ron Schiller, who was caught on a secretly taped video blasting Tea Party supporters as "racist" and saying the public broadcasting outlet doesn't need federal funding.
Dave Edwards, chairman of NPR's board of directors, said the board accepted Vivian Schiller's resignation with "understanding, genuine regret, and great respect for her leadership of NPR these past two years."Answer Question

For political purposes, it was good she resigned. It still will be used to feed the conservative fire and effect funding issues...possibly. The general public listens to and sees NPR as a valuable U.S. asset. Not to mention the entertainment value of Car Talk and Wait, Wait, Don't Tell men and A Prairie Home Companion.
NPR is much more than a news station
