DeMint to Introduce Bill to Defund NPR

Thursday, 21 Oct 2010 11:06 PM

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly said Thursday night that “Jim DeMint will introduce legislation to defund” NPR in the wake of Juan Williams’s firing, according to Politico. DeMint's office confirmed to the website that the senator will announce the legislation tomorrow.

“This is like the ACORN deal – no more money to NPR,” O’Reilly said. “NPR has now devolved into a totalitarian outfit functioning as an arm of the far left.”

A visibly shaken Williams pointed out to O’Reilly on the show that he was the only black man on NPR.

“I didn’t fit in their box there,” he said.

Karl Rove and O’Reilly also discussed two seven-figure gifts from George Soros, or Soros-founded entities, to NPR and Media Matters this week, Politico reported.
