NPR should have ended Juan Williams' employment as soon as he became a commentator on Fox News since, in doing so, he lent NPR's credibility to a broadcaster that deserves none.
Comments like 'wheres-the-press' made shows the lack of toleration the extreme left shows those who disagree with them. Don't debate on the merits, call them names or discredit them. In Juan's instance, he wasn't even giving his opinion...he was simply and honestly expressing his feelings. And for the comment on Fox News...I am so glad someone is here to tell us what news to watch.
I bet that 79% has a lot of liberal people in it.
Wheres-the-press (above) is clueless and ignorant: Juan Williams worked at Fox BEFORE he worked at NPR. Instead of Fox hiring Williams to lay claim to the NPR brand, it was more likely that NPR hired Williams to lay claim to having "people of color" on its news staff. Of course, few were ever there, and fewer remain.
Now NPR management has the crisis of credibility it deserves; and Juan Williams has the $2 million contract with Fox that he deserves. Looks like justice to me.
