National Public Radio is in the "Featured Employers Spotlight" in Sunday's Washington Post. That could be because NPR has posted ads for 24 job openings at NPR, including the vacated spot of Ellen Weiss, the senior vice president for news that canned Juan Williams over the phone. But even in the want ads, NPR can't be honest about its support from taxpayers:
NPR is an internationally acclaimed producer and distributor of noncommercial news, talk, and entertainment programming. A privately supported, not-for-profit membership organization, NPR produces and distributes programming that reaches a combined audience of 27.1 million listeners weekly. NPR Member organizations operate 784 stations, and another 117 public radio stations also present NPR programs, for a total of more than 900 stations nationwide who broadcast NPR programming.
NPR certainly is "privately supported," but why do they hide the public support? They even try to be known only by the letters of NPR, so the "Public" doesn't show.
