Ron Schiller Out at Post-NPR Job
After being caught on tape calling Tea Partiers "racist," he will not be going to the Aspen Institute, a spokesman tells THR.
When Ron Schiller stepped down from NPR Tuesday for calling Tea Partier's "racist," he already had another job at the nonprofit Aspen Institute lined up.
But he has pulled out from that job as well.
"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," Aspen Institute spokesperson Jim Spiegelman tells The Hollywood Reporter.
In light of Ron being caught on tape making his controversial statements, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller (no relation) was ousted Wednesday.
Just six months ago, analyst Juan Williams was fired from the radio syndicator -- which is currently fighting Congressional Republicans who feel it is biased to keep federal funding -- for making statements about Muslims.
