A. They talk about lack of Muslim voices in our schools, the inconvenience of federal funding for NPR, uneducated Christians and "xenophobic," "seriously racist" Tea Partiers taking over the Republican party, Jews in the media, how Juan Williams got what was coming to him, and--oh, yeah--professional ethics.

Some highlights via the "National Palestinian Radio" Web site:
— "The Tea Party is fanatically involved in people's personal lives and very fundamental Christian--I wouldn't even call it Christian. It's this weird evangelical kind of move."
— "Tea Party people" aren't "just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."
— "I think what we all believe is if we don't have Muslim voices in our schools, on the air ... it's the same thing we faced as a nation when we didn't have female voices."
— That NPR "would be better off in the long run without federal funding."Non-racist, non-bigoted, uncompromised, credible, and basically ethical: Is that how you would describe Ron Schiller, President of the NPR Foundation, and his brainy sidekick?
Or would you have to burn a few of your advanced degrees and abandon all your real-world experience to see things their way?
Update: I thought I'd post this screen shot from the Web site of Schiller's new employer, The Aspen Institute, where he is supposed to start work on . . . April Fools' Day!
