Rep. Lamborn reacts to NPR sting video

Rep. Doug Lamborn, the Colorado Republican who has authored several bills to defund public broadcasting, tells the Washington Examiner that he's "amazed by the condescension and arrogance" expressed by outgoing NPR Foundation President Ron Schiller in the covertly recorded video that conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe released this morning. "They seem to be viewing themselves as elites living in an ivory tower, and they are obviously out of touch with ordinary Americans." Lamborn says he hopes the video prompts Democrats to reconsider their support for public broadcasting."I hope that once and for all we can put this issue to bed."
