NPR STATEMENT
MARCH 8, 2011

Below is a statement from NPR spokeswoman Dana Davis Rehm, SVP of Marketing, Communications & External Relations:

"The fraudulent organization represented in this video repeatedly pressed us to accept a $5 million check, with no strings attached, which we repeatedly refused to accept. We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for. Mr. Schiller announced last week that he is leaving NPR for another job."
