    Juan Williams once again got himself into trouble with NPR for comments he made at his other job, at Fox News. And NPR's reaction has unleashed an unprecedented firestorm of criticism directed not at Williams – but at NPR.

    NPR fired Williams Wednesday night after 10 years with the network for comments he made about Muslims on Fox News.

    Thursday was a day like none I’ve experienced since coming to NPR in October 2007. Office phone lines rang non-stop like an alarm bell with no off button. We’ve received more than 8,000 emails, a record with nothing a close second

    "Poorly handled"?

    How about "Should not have happened"?

    Can ONE SINGLE POSTER on USMB defend this bullshit?

    All NPR accomplished with this absolutely horrible HR and PR Fracas was to turn Juan into both a Martyr and an Enemy.

    NPR will pay for this, already are. Whoever that hate filled woman was is going to get slapped down too. Party is over for the NPR. I don't even want to see their salaries there, 420 MILLION a year at taxpayer expense and growing.

    Democrats, the party of corruption.

    It's just like the NAACP, another liberal wing of the Democrat Party, and doesn't have squat to do with civil rights.

    You really can see the revolution building against these freaks, glad it's happening.

    and Juan Williams was a liberal, and a respected liberal. Yes, they exist.

    Are you watching him tonight? He's chairing the O'Reilly Factor. I've never seen him so pissed off.

    I'll watch him when I get home later.

    Hell hath no fury like a person scorned and the newly converted.

    It should be epid.

    I've seen him many times on Fox and knew he was with NPR.I liked him before this happened even though
    I didn't care for a lot of his positions.I really like the guy now still knowing he is a little bit to the left.What they did was a disgrace to just toss him to the curb.
