NPR has terminated its contract with Juan Williams, one of its senior news analysts, after he made comments about Muslims on the Fox News Channel.
NPR said in a statement that it gave Mr. Williams notice of his termination on Wednesday night.
Juan writes opinionated columns for the Washington Post, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal AND is a Fox News Contributor.
The move came after Bill O’Reilly asked him to respond to Bills opinion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said,“The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”
Juan, reply below:
Now I personally don't like it when Williams is on Fox News. But Fox being a 'Fair & Balance' news operation, with opinionated shows, has people on with a different opinions then mine and he comments on his opinion, when getting on an airplane and "I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
NPR excuse... "the remarks were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”
IMO, as I have stated before, the left are so spooked about the events of 9-11 that NOTHING should be said about Muslims or they will attack again.
This attitude IS a admission by the left of jihad victory by radical Islam.
