NPR Fires Analyst Juan Williams Over Comments Made on The O'Reilly Factor
NPR fired news analyst Juan Williams Wednesday night after comments made on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" that Muslims dressed in Muslim garb on planes made him nervous.
During an appearance Monday on Fox's "The O'Reilly Factor," Williams said: "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."
Should Juan Williams have been fired?
