Analysts, NPR: Video Edit of Executive Misleading

Monday, 14 Mar 2011 06:32 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — News analysts say a conservative activist's hidden-camera video targeting NPR was edited to showcase inflammatory remarks from a public radio executive.

Analysts from the Poynter Institute and The Blaze, a website set up by Fox News host Glenn Beck, told an NPR reporter for a story Monday that they found a short version of the video deceiving when compared with the full two-hour tape. The Blaze also reported on the differences between the videos last week.

Still, an NPR spokeswoman says the network confirmed its top fundraising executive made "egregious comments" that were not distorted or fundamentally misrepresented. The videos led to the resignations of fundraiser Ron Schiller and of NPR CEO Vivian Schiller, who is not related.

Conservative activist James O'Keefe posted the full video last week at the same time he released the edited version.
