NPR Whistleblower Resigns After No-Pay Suspension

Courageous National Public Radio (NPR) whistleblower Uri Berliner resigned Wednesday from the company that employed him for a quarter of a century. He was retaliated against by the taxpayer-funded outlet for blowing the lid off the pervasive liberal bias in its reporting.

Berliner was slapped with five days of suspension without pay for his honesty.

The whistleblower penned a recent essay detailing the hard-left slant of the supposedly journalistic outfit. He focused on its single-minded determination to sabotage former President Donald Trump and paint the violent riots of 2020 as peaceful demonstrations.

In his Wednesday resignation, Berliner mourned the downward trajectory taken by the once respected outlet. And he still stopped short of calling for its defunding.

But he added, “I cannot work in a newsroom where I am disparaged by a new CEO whose divisive views confirm the very problems at NPR I cited in my Free Press essay.”

Katherine Maher took over the troubled network last month, and social media has since been inundated with her old postings displaying a far-left bias.

And Berliner is hardly a conservative with an ax to grind at NPR. He recounted twice voting against Trump and resisted calls for the end of taxpayer funding of the liberal outlet.

But the handwriting was clearly on the wall when he wrote the scathing expose of the network’s far-left slant. Berliner cited examples such as its coverage of the thoroughly debunked Russian collusion hoax, the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and the lab leak theory of the origin of COVID-19.

The outlet suffered no dissent and did everything in its power to push a single anti-Trump narrative.

Berliner also noted the extreme disparity between Democrats and Republicans at NPR’s Washington, D.C. newsroom. He said many employees were simply on a crusade to hurt Trump in any way possible.

He recounted a person he believed to be remarkably “fair-minded,” at least for NPR, advising him not to cover the Hunter Biden laptop story for fear it would help Trump’s cause in the last presidential election.

For his transgressions, Berliner was suspended for five days without pay. Some openly stated they no longer wanted to share a newsroom with him.
