NPR editor resigns following public criticism

Published

on

Uri Berliner, a senior editor at National Public Radio (NPR), has resigned from the organisation after publicly criticising its coverage and denouncing the new CEO as “divisive.”

His departure marks the culmination of a contentious episode that underscores the challenges media outlets face in managing internal dissent.

Berliner’s departure was prompted by his decision to publish a lengthy critique of NPR in the Free Press, a media outlet separate from NPR, violating NPR’s policy against staff publishing work for other outlets without permission.

His critique, spanning 3,000 words, delved into perceived shortcomings within NPR’s coverage.

In response to his breach of policy, Berliner faced a five-day suspension without pay.

Resignation letter

However, he opted to resign instead, posting his resignation letter on an unspecified platform, where he specifically pointed to the new CEO’s allegedly divisive views as a factor in his decision.

Berliner’s public criticism and subsequent resignation highlight the tension between journalistic integrity, organisational policies, and freedom of expression within media institutions.

His actions raise questions about the balance between internal dissent and organisational loyalty, as well as the role of leadership in fostering an environment conducive to constructive criticism.

The incident underscores the challenges faced by media organisations in navigating internal dissent and maintaining cohesion amid diverging perspectives.

Berliner’s departure serves as a reminder of the complexities inherent in managing editorial independence and organisational cohesion within newsrooms.
