National Public Radio CEO resigns

Washington (CNN) - National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller resigned Wednesday, according to NPR.

Schiller's resignation comes a day after Ron Schiller, NPR's former senior vice president for fundraising, was shown in an undercover video calling the Tea Party "racist" and "scary" and questioning whether NPR needs federal funding. Ron Schiller, no relation to Vivian Schiller, issued an apology Tuesday night and said his already-announced resignation would be effective immediately.

    Sayonara. It's been real, but it's not been real nice.

    Why is it not ok for Schiller to speak her mind but its ok for Supreme Court Justics (and wives) to speak at TEA Party events? Both are giving their personal opinions, both receive tax dollars in support, one is in charge of fundraising and two are in charge of being unbiased and judge if issues are constitutional.
