Bill O’Reilly is on a roll this month. First, he makes remarks on “The View” that cause Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to walk off the set, now Juan Williams gets fired from National Public Radio for what he said on O’Reilly’s show. Lucky for Williams though he didn’t even have time to collect an unemployment check. Click more for the entire story

Veteran journalist Juan Williams was fired from his job as a senior news analyst for National Public Radio late Wednesday because of comments he made about Muslims and terrorism on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News Channel.

Here is what he said:

NPR said in a statement that Williams’s remarks – including that he gets “worried” and “nervous” when he sees people dressed in Muslim-style clothing on airplanes – “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”

Here is the entire story from the Washington Post


Last week Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off the set of “The View” after Bill O’Reilly said the 9-11 attacks on America were orchestrated and carried out by muslims.

UPDATE: Williams wasn’t unemployed for long.  The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Williams was offered a new three-year $2 million contract  by Fox News Channel CEO Roger Ailes. Williams was already a Fox News contributor. The hefty pay raise will involve Williams appearing more frequently on the channel and having his own personal column on the channel’s website.

    I’m not a fan of Juan Willians and his associates. If he stepped outside the realm of his contract with NPR, then he should be fired. I’m more concerned with the idiot who is riding around with a shotgun in the back of his truck, than someone with “typical muslim looks”, whatever that is supposed to be. We are having more work place violence, and most of the culprits are whitemen, not the someone that looks “arab”.
