Lisa Simeone, reports the Huffington Post
a freelance content provider for a pair of radio shows that are broadcast by National Public Radio, is under fire today for her tangential participation in the OccupyDC movement. Simeone, who has worked in radio for over two decades, is the host of a WDAV radio show called “World Of Opera,” and a freelancer for a program called “Soundprint”. She also participates in an activist organization called “Stop The Machine,” which is part of the broader Occupy movement.
She has since been fired. Seems that whenever reporters for the government-subsidized network express political opinions, said opinions tend to be left of center.
Tell me again, why is a federal government currently running annual deficits of more than one trillion dollars funding NPR?
