Cokie Roberts Offers A Defense Of NPR On Morning Joe

Cokie Roberts made an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to discuss the undercover video produced by James O’Keefe‘s Project Veritas, showing a former NPR executive making several negative and dismissive comments about Tea Party members.

Roberts offered an impassioned defense of NPR in the midst of this little PR problem the multi-platform media outlet is currently facing.

One point the Morning Joe team discussed was whether Ron Schiller – one of the executives shown in the video – has any actual impact on NPR’s coverage. Roberts maintained that, no, he did not and, furthermore, NPR is doing a great job with its reporting.
