    NPR Affiliate Managers Voice Discontent with Firing of Juan Williams | Foxnews.com

    Executives at NPR affiliate stations across the United States have begun publicly voicing discontent in the aftermath of the network's dismissal of news analyst Juan Williams, with several station managers openly questioning the actions and judgment of NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller.

    Some station executives said Williams should not have been fired, while others said the firing should have been more professionally handled. Still others questioned whether NPR is fairly administering its own ethics rules, and suggested Williams was fired purely because he appears on Fox News.

    The statements by NPR affiliate managers come in the wake of Schiller's issuance late Sunday of a written apology to them for her handling of the incident, which has generated more flak for NPR than any other event in the network's forty-year history of operations.
