Juan Responds to Firing of NPR Boss
Heads roll at NPR over Juan Williams firing.
Ellen Weiss, the National Public Radio executive who fired journalist Juan Williams shortly after he made comments about Muslims, defended her actions, shortly after resigning her post.
Weiss, who had served as NPR’s senior vice-president for news, told the Los Angeles Times “What I would say is that the decision to terminate the Juan Williams contract by NPR, of which I was a participant, was based on the highest journalistic standards.”
Weiss reportedly stressed to the Los Angeles Times that she did not make the decision to fire Williams by herself.
Listen to Juan Williams talk about the bias and blinders of the NPR News organization. It confirms what we all know - but coming from a liberal insider, it's good to get the confirmation.
