    There is no mention of Beck in the original linked article.

    What did I miss?

    The editing is irrelevant, since Brietbart released all of the raw footage, some 4 hours' worth. NPR itself doesn't doubt the veracity of the videos either, obviously.

    Keep reaching though, it's comical to watch! :rofl:

    Actually, it isn't irrelevant. They played raw footage vs. what was released this morning, and it is very obviously doctored and manipulated to make NPR look really bad. Yes, the ex CEO guy opined in front of people he didn't know, but the one thing the short video left out was him emphatically stating that NPR is "not for sale" and that donations do not buy reporting. Play the raw footage and then the video. It's obvious.

    He didn't say it. One of his websites did. I think Glenn Beck is a moron and a liar, but I thought this was interesting... of all outlets to admit this.

    ~yawn~

    NPR isn't doubting the veracity of the videos, and neither are any of the people appearing in the videos. The site you are linking to is perfectly capable of doing a little editing themselves, to try to make some bullshit case. There is no case. NPR itself says so.

    It just is what it is.

    Again, Beck's site isn't mentioned in the link you provide, other than in the headline. It's irrelevant anyway.

    Blaze was founded by Beck last year. Dude, I'm not going to argue with you. It was heavily edited - go to Project Veritas and listen for yourself and then listen to the tape that the little crap weasel "released". That guy is such a sleaze and apparently can't report on the truth, so he has to fabricate stuff to promote his dumbass agenda. This is the THIRD TIME he's been caught doing it. He is a fraud and a grade A douchebag - he is not a reliable journalist.
