Corporate salaries and NPR

Barack Obama and the Democrats have villainized  the CEO's of corporations for their huge salaries as if those CEO's were all evil, greedy people. Indeed, didn't some Democrats actually float the idea of capping some corporate salaries?

Why then are Democrats defending the tax funding of NPR, a corporation in which the CEO gets a salary of 1.2 million dollars?

What part of "we can't afford it!" don't Democrats understand?

I agree completely. Democrats should demand that organizations that support them and that they support should lower their executive salaries substantially.

The president of the AFL-CIO earns $238,975/yr (source). If the president of the largest federation of labor unions in the United States can make it work with with that much then surely a progressive organization like NPR can do the same.
