NPR President Vivian Schiller Resigns In The Wake Of Hidden Camera Sting

NPR President Vivian Schiller Resigns In The Wake Of Hidden Camera Sting
Vivian SchillerThe big boss is out at NPR today following the release yesterday of a video by guerilla undercover filmmaker James O’Keefe which showed another NPR executive, foundation president Ron Schiller, making critical remarks about the Tea Party. Today, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller (no relation) resigned. The NPR board released a statement saying in part, "Vivian was passionately committed to NPR’s mission, and to stations and NPR working collaboratively as a local-national news network. “ Schiller herself had no comment but the resignation follows a number of embarrassing episodes for NPR, including the firing of Juan Williams last fall. We discuss what these developments mean for NPR with NYU journalism professor and media critic Jay Rosen, Time Magazine media writer James Poniewozik and Al Tompkins, Senior Faculty, Broadcast and Online at the Poynter Institute.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
