NPR Exec Loses NEXT Job Over James O’Keefe Video

Already forced to resign from NPR over his remarks in a hidden camera prank by James O’Keefe, former NPR Foundation president Ron Schiller took another tough hit to his career on Wednesday, losing his next job as well.

Schiller was already set to leave NPR for a position with the Aspen Institute before the scandal broke out, but the Aspen Institute announced today that the departing NPR exec will be jumping ship without a life raft.

“Ron Schiller has informed us that, in light of the controversy surrounding his recent statements, he does not feel that it’s in the best interests of the Aspen Institute for him to come work here,” a statement from the nonprofit read.
