Sensing public funds slipping through their fingers, the board of NPR has decided to sacrifice a gazelle to the lions on the budget cut Serengeti and hope it’s enough to keep the Republican predators from stalking prey for a while.

From the Daily Caller:

Vivian Schiller, the President and CEO of National Public Broadcasting, announced her resignation on Wednesday after an undercover camera caught then-NPR Vice President Ron Schiller (no relation) calling the tea party ‘racist’ and disclosing that the organization could survive without government funds. According to NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik, the organization’s board “ousted” Vivian Schiller from her position.

And after the NPR exec who called the Tea Party racist said he “didn’t really mean it” and everything? That’s not the kind of tolerance you’d expect from liberals — but maybe that’s the point and they’re hoping it’s enough to prove there’s not a left-wing bone in NPR’s body.

Update: Big surprise — The interim CEO is a Democratic political contributor.
