Juan Williams Blasts NPR

10 Mar

Jusan Williams of “Faux News”…

Accuses NPR of being an “all white operation”?

When did they discover Glenn Beck’s Daddy was black? Bill O’Reilly? Hannity? The “blonde bombe” squad?

Juan Williams, Fox News contributor, blasts former employer NPR as ‘all-white operation

Ousted NPR pundit Juan Williams ripped his former employer — which is taking heat after an embarrassing sting — for showing the “worst of white condescension” when it fired him last year.

“I think when it comes to NPR’s decision to, without any reason, throw me out the door, I think that for them, especially for some of the people who created NPR, it’s an all-white operation,” said Williams, who works for Fox News.

Williams said NPR “felt they had never had much success” with black or Hispanic journalists and did better with white women.

Williams made the comments to the Huffington Post before Tuesday’s release of a sting video that showed an NPR exec calling Tea Partiers “racist.”

The website published the interview Thursday as part of a series that examines black journalists’ experiences in the media industry.

NPR canned Williams, 56, in October after he told “The O’Reilly Factor” he gets “nervous” when he sees people in airplanes wearing “Muslim garb.”

NPR has said Williams’ comments about Muslims “undermined his credibility as a news analyst.”

About the firing, Williams said: “I think they acted very unfairly, and largely in a condescending manner…”

“If you stop and think about some of the things that were said in the midst of that controversy, the idea that I should have a relationship with a psychiatrist or I need a publicist to tell me what to say … It just suggests … they think I was sort of some sort of infantile mentality, or childlike person…”

“I think the worst of white condescension to black people was evident in some of those comments.”

    Oh my, how embarrassing.

    I have rarely listened to NPR and only watched Fox news a few times as a curiosity many years ago, usually Hannity and Colmes. There are too many sources for news to be locked into only one, and US-based news generally is myopic.

    What Juan is basically doing is comparing the liberal “plantation” to the conservative “plantation.” Is this what it’s come to for Juan?
