Apparently since they can’t get people to stop watching Fox they can retaliate against those who dare cross the Fox line:
Specifically, in a conversation about Islamic terrorism, Williams said on the O’Reilly Factor that he sometimes had fear on airplanes seeing muslim passengers in Islamic garb.
NPR said Juan Williams’ comments “undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR” and “his remarks on the O’Reilly Factor … were inconsistent with our editorial standards.”
For reference, NPR recently ran a segment on how to speak “tea bagger”.
Me? I’m reminded of this post just a few five days ago:
“NPR has the right approach because they are in the business of serving the public,” She said. “I think it is perfectly consistent to require a higher standard of impartiality.”
That these two stories took place in the same week is serious Irony overload.
