NPR CEO resigns

The chief executive of National Public Radio has resigned, in the wake of a kerfuffle involving a James O'Keefe video sting. I am baffled by the whole affair, but the core crime that set all of this in motion appears to be the fact that another NPR executive had the audacity to use the word "xenophobic" in relation to the Tea Party. WaPo, NYT, more NYT. (disclosure: I am a proud freelance contributor to the radio network).
