New video: NPR Was Going To Accept Muslim Brotherhood Donation, Hide It From The Government

James O'Keefe just dropped the other shoe on NPR.

His new video released today shows that contrary to what they said about it previously, not only was National Public Radio going to accept that $5 million donation from the fictitious Muslim Brotherhood front group Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, but that they were prepared to assist MEAC in making the donation anonymously to protect it from a federal government audit!

When a man posing as Ibrahim Kasaam asked, “It sounded like you were saying NPR would be able to shield us from a government audit, is that correct?” NPR’s senior director of institutional giving, Betsy Liley, responded, “I think that is the case, especially if you are anonymous. I can inquire about that.”

Kasaam made two follow-up phone calls to Liley after their lunch at the Cafe Milano.

Liley said a $5 million donation would amount to about “10 years of support.”

Kasaam follows up by asking: “The fact that NPR is not only a tax-exempt organization, but also receives direct contributions from the government — does that invite some sort of government oversight or government examination of contributions, et cetera?”

Liley answered: “They have audited our programs at times and, I think, as part of that, they can look at our audited financials. If you are concerned in any way about that, that’s one reason you might want to be an anonymous donor. And, we would certainly, if that was your interest, want to shield you from that.”

Not only that, but Liley opened another major can of worms when she mentioned more than $80 million in donations from universities to NPR.

“As I said, like this guy that I used to work with who gave – where I used to work for the university, I don’t know, $5 or $10 or $12 million, he was just entered into the database as anonymous,” Liley said. “I knew who he was and about five other people did, but there was no paperwork in any official place that identified him as that donor.”

Following the phone calls, Liley got the OK from NPR’s senior management and sent an e-mail to the man posing as Kasaam saying MEAC was cleared to make an anonymous donation of $5 million.

“NPR can list MEAC as an anonymous donor in our database, which would mean we would not disclose the organization’s name,” Liley wrote in the e-mail to the fictitious Kasaam. “We do not publish a list of gifts, so it would not be an issue there.”

How interesting..NPR was prepared to facilitate what amounts to possible money laundering, all to preserve their sleazy little Leftist fifedom. After all, that $5 mil could have come from anywhere. And talk about the influence on their news content! Who else has been giving them megabucks anonymously to slant their coverage?

O'Keefe claims he has more footage, some of it involving PBS.I can hardly wait.

Not only should these people be cut off from taxpayer funding without a dime, they should be barred from employment by any news outlet that considers itself even halfway reputable.

please helps me write more gooder!



regarding ff comment of what the 5mil would do to influence pbs content, imo, it would not influence it at all. the only thing it would do is sustain their leftist drivel.
and to allowing ANY news organization to consider/set its' own reputation in this day/age is laughable.
reading/hearing about pbs, is like watching the series I CLAUDIUS. that was aired on ............ pbs.

FTR, I thought the PBS version of Robert Graves' novels was superb...they followed the books pretty closely.

I recommend them as a read for Joshua's Army will teach you almost as much about politics and human nature as Machiavelli.

the snake/viper used in the pbs intro was appropriate i thought.
livia reminds me of a certain sec. of state, as a matter of fact.
