Uri Berliner has resigned from his position as a senior editor at National Public Radio (NPR) in the US, just over a week after accusing the network of liberal bias and lacking viewpoint diversity. His resignation followed a five-day suspension without pay from NPR in response to his essay criticizing the outlet’s coverage of news stories. Berliner cited concerns about the outlet’s focus on race and identity, as well as a lack of balance in reporting. NPR has not yet commented on Berliner’s resignation. Berliner’s essay sparked debate within NPR, with CEO Katherine Maher defending the outlet’s commitment to integrity and mission.
