Video:Rush Says Nothing On His Program Is Staged – Ever

Unfortunately, it became necessary this week, for Rush to explain to audience  that he doesn’t take callers from paid actors, a charge, that  he maintains, doesn’t even make much business sense for a show like his.

The story he’s referring to, originally appeared in The Tablet Magazine on the 11th of February, and suggested that shows like Limbaugh’s, Hannity’s, and Beck’s take fake, paid callers:

“I was surprised that it seemed so open,” the actor told me in an interview. “There was really no pretense of covering it up.”

Curious, the actor did some snooping and learned that Premiere On Call was a service offered by Premiere Radio Networks, the largest syndication company in the United States and a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, the entertainment and advertising giant. Premiere syndicates some of the more sterling names in radio, including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity. But a great radio show depends as much on great callers as it does on great hosts: Enter Premiere On Call.

“Premiere On Call is our new custom caller service,” read the service’s website, which disappeared as this story was being reported (for a cached version of the site click here). “We supply voice talent to take/make your on-air calls, improvise your scenes or deliver your scripts. Using our simple online booking tool, specify the kind of voice you need, and we’ll get your the right person fast. Unless you request it, you won’t hear that same voice again for at least two months, ensuring the authenticity of your programming for avid listeners.”

Rush clarifies, it’s FM morning shows that use these types of paid actors:

Video: James O’Keefe “Punks” NPR

This is only part one of the latest investigation by journalist/provocateur, James O’Keefe.

In this production, Senior VP of Development of the NPR Foundation, Ron Schiller, is shown discussing a potential donation from a phony Muslim Brotherhood front group set-up by O’Keefe’s team. While discussing the importance of NPR, Mr. Schiller expresses his views on conservatives, the Tea Party, Republicans, Zionist and much more.

Now that’s what I call “one of the greatest gonzo pranks of all time” —because it helps expose what an appalling organization NPR is.

I don’t know what I’m more appalled by – the fact that this dope from the supposedly “unbiased NPR” spent so much time slamming conservatives, the fact that he would even consider taking money from an anti-Semitic Muslim Brotherhood fronted group, of the risible fact that he thinks NPR would do better without public funding. It’s a three-way tie.

“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.”

I bet they’re mostly appalled by his statement that NPR would do better without public funding.

UPDATE:

UPDATE II:

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, James O’ Keefe said, “As far as their statement about…”we didn’t take the $5 million – we didn’t take the bait…that’s something that people are going to find  more about as we move forward in the coming days”.

UPDATE: III:

Predictably,  the left-wing media is characterizing the above video as “heavily edited,” suggesting fraud, even though the entire uncut video is available for viewing at O’Keefe’s website, Project Veritas.

UPDATE IV:

NPR Ousts The Other Schiller!

Video: Speeches From The Iowa Faith And Freedom Event

Here are the speeches from the five Republican Presidential candidates who spoke at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Event, last night, attended and covered by Duane Lester, All American Blogger. Since no front-runner has emerged yet,  it’s a good idea for us to listen to what these guys have to say, every chance we get. All the speeches were good, but one really stood out for me, this time. Watch these and see what you think:
