NPR Editor Who Called Out How DEI and TDS Corrupted News Coverage Resigns

We previously covered how Uri Berliner, a Longtime NPR Senior Business Editor,  Exposed How DEI and Trump Derangement Ruined The Organization and how he then was Suspended Without Pay, Threatened With Termination.

Now Berliner has resigned:

The NY Times interviewed Berliner about the decision:

In an interview, Mr. Berliner said his decision to resign from NPR coalesced early this week after an email exchange with Ms. Maher. He said in the interview that he could infer from one of her emails that a memo she had sent to employees last week about workplace integrity was referring to him even though he had not been mentioned by name. In the email, which was sent to Mr. Berliner on Monday, Ms. Maher said her memo “stands for itself in reflecting my perspective on our organization.”

“Everything completely changed for me on Monday afternoon,” Mr. Berliner said.

NPR reported on NPR’s controversy, quoting its new president Katherine Maher:

In a statement Monday about the messages she had posted, Maher praised the integrity of NPR’s journalists and underscored the independence of their reporting.

“In America everyone is entitled to free speech as a private citizen,” she said. “What matters is NPR’s work and my commitment as its CEO: public service, editorial independence, and the mission to serve all of the American public. NPR is independent, beholden to no party, and without commercial interests.”

The network noted that “the CEO is not involved in editorial decisions.”

Meanwhile, Chris Rufo has been mocking Maher relentlessly on X (Twitter) after digging up some of her old tweets demonstrating her bias:

This would all make NPR seem unserious. Which is correct.
