Politico reports that NPR are taking a closer look at Mara Liasson's role as a continued Fox"News" correspondant.
Executives at National Public Radio recently asked the network’s top political correspondent, Mara Liasson, to reconsider her regular appearances on Fox News because of what they perceived as the network’s political bias, two sources familiar with the effort said.
According to a source, Liasson was summoned in early October by NPR’s executive editor for news, Dick Meyer, and the network’s supervising senior Washington editor, Ron Elving. The NPR executives said they had concerns that Fox’s programming had grown more partisan, and they asked Liasson to spend 30 days watching the network.
At a follow-up meeting last month, Liasson reported that she’d seen no significant change in Fox’s programming and planned to continue appearing on the network, the source said.
Though Williams has openly taken on the role as "go to black man" when people like Bill O'Reilly are taken to task when he lets fly with on of his racial divisive gaffes - he even quest-hosts The Factor, which should be grounds enough for his removal from NPR - Liasson is either lying in order to keep her Fox"News" gig and protect the "credibility" of the network or she simply hasn't been paying attention to what is going on.
But didn't this same inquiry happen with Williams last year?
