I Guess We Know Who Will Fill Juan Williams’ Slot — George Soros Is Buying 100 Political “Reporters” For NPR

This was news to me.  A foundation founded by hard core leftist George Soros is providing $1.8 million to NPR so it can hire at least 100 reporters to cover local state house politics.  “[The journalists would not be part of typical statehouse coverage, but instead would work on enterprise journalism that looks at how state government decisions play out over years, and extend beyond a single state’s borders.”

So Juan Williams’ (and Mara Liasson’s) association with FoxNews has long been a source of angst among NPR executives, but George Soros’ funding of 100 “enterprise journalists” is not a problem.  I think we know why.

Anyway, remind me again, why are taxpayers funding NPR?
