- NPR Sting: Edited Video Makes Schiller, O'Keefe Look Bad - TIME - "The full video hardly clears Schiller. His opining about liberals' education and conservatives' anti-intellectualism, for instance, still comes off as smug and would have hurt NPR regardless. (The network was still feeling backlash from firing Juan Williams last fall after he said on Fox that some Muslims on planes made him nervous.) But the full picture shows O'Keefe's partisan hit job — trying to link NPR to liberal elitism and scary Muslims — was manipulative too. And it shows how sadly easy it is to take advantage of the attention span and metabolism of media today."
