Alicia Shepard, NPR ombudsman, took questions in a live online chat at WashingtonPost.com at 1:30 p.m. Eastern today (March 9). The chat is archived. Shepard said that Betsy Liley, NPR's senior director of institutional giving, who was also caught in the sting video, is now on administrative leave. "I'm not sure how she could continue effectively for NPR," Shepard said.
Shepard also referred participants to her blog posting on NPR President Vivian Schiller's resignation.
