NPR reports that its executive Ron Schiller, who was caught bashing the alleged racism of conservatives and lamenting over the self-perceived Zionist control of newspapers in an undercover video produced by James O'Keefe and associates, has been fired:  

"Just last Thursday Ron Schiller announced he would be leaving NPR to take a position at the Aspen Institute in Colorado. He has been commuting from his home in Aspen, at his own expense, during his 18 months on the job. Today, his departure was made effective immediately."
