- NPR Ousts CEO Vivian Schiller
Chairman of the National Public Radioâ€™s board of directors, David Edward, released a statement announcing the media organization accepts the president and chief-executive-officerâ€™s resignation, but David Folkenflik is tweeting a different story.
â€śThe board for NPR NEWS has just ousted CEO Vivian Schiller in the wake of video sting by conservative activist of a top exec,â€ť said the NPR Media correspondent via Twitter.
On the other hand, Edwardsâ€™ statement implies it was a resignation, not a provoked removal.â€śThe board accepted Vivianâ€™s resignation with understanding, genuine regret and great respect for her leadership of NPR these past two years.â€ť
Schillerâ€™s departure comes after her fellow executive, Ron Schiller, which she has no relation to, accused the Tea Party of being â€śseriously racist.â€ť Vivian also received flack for firing Juan Williams.
