NPR CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns

I am very happy to hear that Vivian Schiller and Ellen Weiss have resigned from NPR. Ms. Schiller and/or Weiss is responsible for the firing of Juan Williams for expressing a basic concern that I too share. Thanks to the harsh action, I was forced to stop the automatic monthly donations that I had been making to KPBS for decades. So today is a celebration that NPR may go forward less biased than before under Ms. Schiller's direction and now NPR and KPBS employees may not need to be silenced in fear of her
wrath should they express a personal concern that offends her bias toward Islam and Muslims. Note that Mr. Williams was not expressing his personal concern on NPR or KPBS air-time, so it had no impact on whether or not KPBS is a radio-news dial where people are nice (sans the recently resigned).
