Vivian Schiller Out At NPR

NPR's CEO Vivian Schiller has stepped down after the non-profit's fundraising executive Ron Schiller (no relation) was surreptitiously taped calling members of the Tea Party "racist" and generally denigrating them. Ms. Schiller was at the center of a controversy last fall for ordering the dismissal of commentator Juan Williams over remarks he made on the Fox Network. More about her ouster from NPR here from David Folkenflik (NPR), the Washington Post,  and Time Magazine (interesting convergence of print, video, radio, and the Internet).
