The sponsor of a bill to eliminate NPR's taxpayer support ? as well as a proposal to stop federal money for all of public broadcasting, including TV ? said the re-airing of the Williams affair this week would put more heat on institutions already unpopular with congressional Republicans.

An executive who oversees hardware engineering for the iPhone is leaving Apple Inc., a company spokesman said Monday. Apple did not say why the executive, Mark Papermaster, senior vice president of iPhone and iPod hardware engineering, was leaving the company. Papermaster couldn't be reached for comment. But according to news reports, Papermaster apparently was being left out of the decision-making process and had lost the confidence of Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs. Papermaster's departure adds to Apple's public relations woes related to its new iPhone 4. The controversy has been dubbed "antennagate" because of reception problems that have plagued the device since its launch in June.
