Seriously. It is lunatic. NPR thinks Juan Williams expressing what the majority of people think is worse than the obviously left bent obsession much of their reporting displays. Though heralded as the “just the facts” network we’ve all heard NPR reporting melt into commentary – at least in undertones.
Mr. Williams said he was being honest when he said on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday night that he worried when he saw people in “Muslim garb” on an airplane. “I have a moment of anxiety or fear given what happened on 9/11,” he said in an interview on Fox News, where he is employed as a paid contributor.
He said he asked if they could meet in person to discuss the issue: “We don’t have that chance to have a conversation about this? And she said, there’s nothing you can say that will change my mind. This has been decided above me and we’re terminating your contract.”
Though he said he suspected that “the powers-that-be at NPR pretty much think what Juan thinks,” Mr Kristol wrote: “The standards of political correctness must be maintained. Pressure groups speaking for allegedly offended Muslims must be propitiated. And so Juan had to go.”
