FIRED! PBS Exec: ‘People Are So F–king Dumb,’ Nice That Dummies Are ‘Sick & Dying’


In 2011, Mission Veritas exposed the leftist snobbery of National Public Radio when two males posing as Muslim activists went to lunch with NPR fundraisers Ron Schiller and Betsy Liley, and Schiller ruined his personal NPR profession by popping off on hidden digicam about how Tea Get together advocates have been “white, middle-America gun-toting…severely racist, racist folks.”

As they mentioned the Center East and Muslims, Schiller added “I’m most disturbed and disillusioned by on this nation, which is that the educated, so-called elite on this nation is simply too small a share of the inhabitants so that you’ve got this very massive uneducated a part of the inhabitants that carries these concepts.” He in all probability was let go for saying NPR did not want federal funding. There isn’t a query many conservative taxpayers are outraged folks like this are taking our tax {dollars}. 

Nearly ten years later, Mission Veritas pulled the identical sting on PBS principal counsel Michael Beller, eliciting echoes of the identical snobbery. And like Schiller, Beller was let go. 



Beller was snookered into providing his actual opinions,  that he was blissful to stay in Washington D.C. as a substitute of a small city in the US. He stated that individuals in these cities usually are not clever. “People are so f*cking dumb. You recognize, most individuals are dumb. It’s good to stay in a spot the place individuals are educated and know stuff. Might you think about for those who lived in certainly one of these different cities or cities the place everyone’s simply silly?

Let’s play this throughout a PBS pledge drive within the crimson states.

“PBS — Supported by dumb f–king People such as you. Thanks.” 

Additionally gross: Beller expressing delight that the coronavirus was cresting in crimson states: 

BELLER: What’s nice is that COVID is spiking in all of the crimson states proper now. So that’s nice.

VERITAS: Why do you suppose so?

BELLER: As a result of both these folks received’t come out to vote for Trump — you recognize the crimson states — or lots of them are sick and dying.  

Beller was additionally goaded into joking about how the youngsters of Trump-supporting dad and mom ought to actually enter PBS re-education camps. 

“They’ll [Trump supporters] be elevating a technology of illiberal, horrible folks – horrible children,” Beller stated. “We go for all of the Republican voters and Homeland Safety will take their kids away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps,” he cracked.  “Enlightenment camps. They’re good, they’ve Sesame Avenue characters within the school rooms, and so they watch PBS all day,” he stated.

The Veritas crew led with Beller’s try at humor if all these “f—ing dumb” People re-elected Trump. 

BELLER: In these occasions, that are distinctive — I imply Trump — Trump is near Hitler.

VERITAS: What are you going to do if we [Democrats] don’t win?

BELLER: Go to the White Home and throw Molotov cocktails.

That is definitely not humorous now. There was no announcement of airing an unedited video of those conversations, in case PBS and Beller consider lots of context was edited out of those conversations. However the firing underlines that PBS did not discover that excuse believable.
