Interesting incident within the NPR (National Public Radio) internal offices this past week:

Bill O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, recently made an appearance on the ABC television show, The View, in which he “directly blamed” all Muslims for the 9/11 attacks. O’Reilly was looking for supported arguments for this statement on his own show, The O’Reilly Factor, in which Juan Williams appeared.
