TRUTH AND CONSEQUENCES: NPR Whistleblower Suspended Without Pay After Exposing Far-Left Bias

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.16.24

NPR has suspended veteran editor Uri Berliner after he penned a bombshell piece in the Free Press exposing the news organization’s far-left bias.

Berliner has been suspended for five days without pay. NPR media reporter David Folkenflik reported the five-day suspension without pay began on Friday.

Berliner’s piece criticized NPR’s coverage of COVID, the Hunter Biden laptop, and more. He also exposed that there are nearly no Republicans in the NPR newsroom.

“It angered many of his colleagues, led NPR leaders to announce monthly internal reviews of the network’s coverage, and gave fresh ammunition to conservative and partisan Republican critics of NPR, including former President Donald Trump,” Folkenflik wrote.

From Fox News:

Folkenflik also spoke to Berliner directly, and the suspended editor told him embattled new CEO Katherine Maher is not the right person for the job after a plethora far-left social media posts she wrote before being hired were unearthed by NPR critics.

Maher, who took over as NPR’s CEO and president last month, has gone viral over her old tweets, which show her support for Hillary Clinton in 2016, Joe Biden in 2020, referenced concern over White privilege, and said that property damage was “not the thing” Americans should be upset over during looting in May 2020.

“We’re looking for a leader right now who’s going to be unifying and bring more people into the tent and have a broader perspective on, sort of, what America is all about,” Berliner told Folkenflik. “And this seems to be the opposite of that.”
