Punished NPR Journalist Resigns After Calling Out Partisan Trainwreck

Update (Wed. 1103ET): Following his suspension from NPR for calling out their overt partisan bias, veteran journalist Uri Berliner has resigned after 25 years with the network.

"I am resigning from NPR, a great American institution where I have worked for 25 years," Berliner wrote, adding "I don’t support calls to defund NPR."

"I respect the integrity of my colleagues and wish for NPR to thrive and do important journalism. But I cannot work in a newsroom where I am disparaged by a new CEO whose divisive views confirm the very problems at NPR I cite in my Free Press essay," he continued.
