Juan Williams has been fired by NPR .
Juan is a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel .
He is a regular on FOX News Sunday, and often debates Brit Hume and Bill Krystol .
The panel is rounded out by Juan's collegue Mara Liasson.
Is Mara next on the chopping block ?
Juan has even hosted the O'Reilly factor a few times when Bill was away .
Williams' presence on the largely conservative and often contentious prime-time talk shows of Fox News has long been a sore point with NPR News executives.
His status was earlier shifted from NPR staff correspondent to analyst after he took clear-cut positions about public policy on television and in newspaper opinion pieces.
So what did he do to get fired ?
He spoke the TRUTH , nothing more , nothing less .
His simple exchange with O'Reilly :
"Look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if 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."
Mr. Williams also made reference to the Pakistani immigrant who pleaded guilty this month to trying to plant a car bomb in Times Square. “He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.
Juan is not a racist , he has been a very vocal opponent of AZ S.B. 1070
Who is really behind his firing ?
Think Progress , Huffington Post ,and of course CAIR .
How does Soros fit in ?
NPR has received a $1.8 million grant from the Open Society Foundations to begin a project called Impact of Government that is intended to add at least 100 journalists at NPR member radio stations in all 50 states over the next three years.
Of course if you are a NPR affiliate employee named Sarah Spitz at public radio station KCRW and make death wishes on Rush Limbaugh…not a firing offense.
Arianna Huffington , and Nazi sympathizer GEORGE SOROS
